5 Remaining Wii Games Worth Getting

Posted by Michael Koczwara On August - 23 - 2011 2 Comments

Nintendo has already kicked off the next generation of their handheld and the Wii U is already keeping gamers looking at the next generation rather than the present. But what about the ever popular Wii console that polarized the world with it’s tremendous success? The Wii didn’t just disappear overnight. The system still has games coming, maybe not the most impressive, but they are still games. Here are my top five games to look forward to as the Wii’s life comes to an end.


5. Fortune Street


Why wait for Mario Party when you can get your hands on Fortune Street? The game is similar to the board mechanics of Mario Party, but hosts a monopoly like version where players land on and purchase properties. The game features minigames, as well as a large list of Mario and Dragon Quest characters. Make sure to keep your eyes open as Fortune Street hits later this year.

4. Rhythm Heaven Wii

The popular DS game of the same name is coming to the Wii and is looking very promising. Players play in short but fun microgames where the goal is to press, mash and hit the correct buttons that correspond with the rhythm being played in the game. Look for the game to hit store shelves this holiday season.

3. Kirby: Return to Dreamland

Last year Nintendo shocked us with Kirby’s Epic Yarn. This year Nintendo is bringing us the title many fans have been waiting for. A game that digs back to the roots of the series, with gameplay and the visual look bringing a bit of nostalgia along with it. Add in the Wii’s capabilities and you have a fine game waiting for you this October 2011.

2. Mario Party 9


The Wii hosts a plethora of party games, but only a few rise to the top. With 2007′s Mario Party 8 being a flop among fans and critics, Mario Party 9 is being set up to fix those mistakes and improve on previous installments in the series. Party games and the Wii go hand in hand, and what better way to end the Wii with one of the most successful party games in history. Expect Mario Party 9 to hit sometime next year.

1. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword


Fans have been waiting for the day they can get their hands on the true Zelda game for the Wii. With Skyward Sword, fans are not only getting a brand new adventure, they are also getting the ability to play with the revolutionizing Wii Motion Plus, along with a new art style that brings a layer freshness to the series. Expect Skyward Sword to arrive on November 20th of this year.

  1. I agree with this list. Actually, I intend to get all the games on this list except Rhythm Heaven Wii. Also, the three games in which Nintendo of America has no plans of releasing (Xenoblade Chronicles, The Last Story, and Pandora’s Tower), would also be worthwhile games to have, if it were ever to be localized.

    i agree but imo kirby would be second and mario party would be third.

    i didnt really like mario party 8 the series has become stale after the third one. or rythem heavon on ds and fortune street looks like a ghetto mario party lol

    kirby and zelda are really the only 2 left and then wii u takes over.
