Neogaf is yet again the source of a really big Wii U rumor spreading this week; a rumor way too unrealistic to be true yet we want your imagination to run wild with this piece of information. The speculation this time is concerning the Wii U’s upcoming eShop and what it will contain at launch and during its future.

There is quite a few interesting titles listed and if you’d like to check out how untrue this list seems then hit the jump and take a look for yourself.

You only need one reason to prove this is fake; World of Warcraft. How would you be able to fit all that extra data on your storage? There is just too much space required for World of Warcraft no matter how much space the Wii U will take and SD cards you could use. It’s just unrealistic. If you can think of any other faults in the list, let us know in the comments too!

So would you like this to be true? Do you think there is any chance for this to become reality? What would you like to see on the Wii U’s upcoming eShop? Hit us with some comments now!

  • This list would seem pretty true if it weren't for World of Warcraft 😀

    • meow

      but think if we did play WOW on wiiu?! WOOOOOOT

    • Blaze

      I hear you 😛 and Phantasy Star Online 2 whould be more then welcome!

    • I can't see Dota 2 either, or bit.trip runner 2 because I'm pretty sure Gaijin said they're done with the bit.trip series

    Ridiculously fake.

  • Kitbird

    FAKE, for one thing why the hell would Valve make games for the Wii? Second, Red Steel 2: Locked a Reloaded, not only is that not quite english, but why the hell would Nintendo remake it? Wii games are said to work on the Wii U. Whoever made this, nice try, woulda fell for it if not for that, and World of Warcraft? Seriously?

    • Craig

      Are you serious? Wii U isn't a Wii you idiot, it's a brand new console unrelated to Wii other than being backwards compatible.

  • Gokk

    I already have my nice computer for Valve games.

  • Gokk

    You can do a lot more stuff on a good computer than the Wii U for good games.

    • clubchloe1

      Than why are you on here if you play computer games and not REAL video games?

    • Craig

      It's true… Real gamers buy and support consoles and play games on a machine intended for such a purpose. You're the one who is outnumbered and not included here, odd one out.

    • Trollololol

      Because this is a Zelda site, and the exclusives on consoles are much better then pc. For games like BF3, yes a computer is miles ahead

  • Ifrit

    How about the fact that world of warcraft is also listed under activision. It is a BLIZZARD ENTERTAINMENT GAME!

    • Actually, Activision and Blizzard merged a few years ago. However, WoW is usually listed as a straight-up Blizzard game instead of an Activision Blizzard game these days as far as I've seen. So your point still stands!

  • Seriously, why do people spread these stupid rumors?

    • I'm starting to get sick of Neogaf's stupid rumors!

  • Me

    To be honest, even if this list does have some truth in it, I'm more interested in the virtual console games they are going to have in the eShop. Especially if they include Gamecube games.

    • Oh that would be so cool O.O
      I would buy one just for that!
      the only thing is gamecube
      games are kinda big :/
      BUT the wii U doesn't have
      gamecube disc support so
      maybe it is a possibility!

    • clubchloe1

      YES! Virtual console gamecube games would be awesome! Especially rare gamecube games like Pikmin 2.

      • wait Pikmin 2 is rare? Sweet I own a rare game! 😀

  • Lioness

    LOL! That's totally amazing. WoW on a Nintendo console is like the -perfect example- of a gaming thing that will never happen! I can't think of anything more fitting! How could anyone actually think people would take this seriously?

  • TheMaverickk

    It's not just WoW… that's merely the first example.

    Valve bringing it's games to another systems download service is also a stretch.

    The list just seems like wishful thinking.

    • falconfetus8

      They've released games on Xbox…

      • Ifrit

        And PS3…

        • TheMaverickk

          They've released their games in disc format.

          I'm a little skeptical though on their desire to release their titles in the eShop… especially considering how well Steam is doing as a download service.

          Of course they've been releasing titles on consoles for a while now and even bringing others over from the past, like the Orange Box… I'm sure they have interest in the Wii U… but to have titles already ready for the eShop is skeptical I think.

    <img src=>I hope that we can put forward some constructive comments<img src=>

  • neos

    this would have been an interesting list if not for WoW. i agree that the amount of memory needed for it would be insane.

  • suportedcofe

    Half of the stuff I can see as a possibility.


    Let's see. Okamiden, WoW, Goldeneye etc…

    Not going to happen.

  • bastian

    Of course this list is fake, but I really really really would love to play Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Wii U… the old school FFCC GameCube game would work so perfectly on the Wii U. 🙁

    • mmonsoon326

      yeah, a remake or FFCC 2 would be perfect for the Wii U

      • TheMaverickk

        It would have to be online multiplayer.

        The Wii U seems to only be using a single Wii U tablet… which although perfect for Crystal Chronicles…. would mean no local multiplayer.

        Mind you I'd love to see this game in HD and in Widescreen playing online as well.

  • yeah cause nintendo would totally re-remake goldeneye and release it on a download and not disc. I don't think so :p

  • Zorathan

    This made me laugh. LAUGH SO HARD.

  • Zacc Coffey

    We want minecraft on the wii u!…well… I do!

    • X_factor

      That's about as much wishful thinking as WOW…

    • Goron

      😀 Minecraft with HD graphics would be amazing!

  • ArkhamOfFear

    I Lol'd when i saw WoW

  • Pingback: Xbox Kinect Exercise Bundle()

  • Linky-pea

    man a HD Okami would be epic 😀 I'm calling bullsh*t though, too good to be true.

  • HeroofTime

    I honestly don’t care what games they add to the Wii U I would be happy just with the Wii U no matter what games are for it and I’m surprised people make a big deal about this article

    • Most people posting here would probably love to see many or all of these games on the Wii U. The big deal has nothing to do with the Wii U itself or the games themselves. What people are going on about is the fact that the list is obviously fake; the list itself is the big deal.
