With the recent completion of the Gamescom conference in Germany, Amazon revealed that Nintendo’s Wii U had the biggest increase in pre-orders.

Leading the pack is the upcoming Hyrule Warriors, releasing for North America, Europe, and Australia this September, with a 11.77% increase.

Other titles increases as follows;

1. Project CARS – 42.3 per cent increase
2. Rise of the Tomb Raider – 30.25 per cent increase
3. Bloodborne – 16.08 per cent increase
4. Hyrule Warriors – 11.77 per cent increase
5. Quantum Break – 10.77 per cent increase
6. Far Cry 4 – 9.53 per cent increase
7. Assassin’s Creed Unity – 9.44 per cent increase
8. Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor – 9.03 per cent increase
9. Battlefield: Hardline – 8.81 per cent increase
10. Super Smash Bros for 3DS – 7.56 per cent increase



According to Smash Bros. creator Masahiro Sakurai, Wii U owners have a longer wait over 3DS owners due to the intense debugging process required before the release of a game.

“Checking is done both domestically and overseas, so for a game like Smash Bros., several hundred people are employed.” Sakurai explained. “So, debugging alone becomes a huge project. So much so that one of the biggest reasons for the separate release dates for the 3DS and Wii U versions was so that we could shift the debugging periods.”

While we all await with bated breath for the release on Smash Bros. for Wii U, we do have the 3DS release coming up on September 13 (Japan), October 3 (North America and Europe), October 4 (Australia).

On September 4, 2014 Cubemen 2 will release on the Nintendo eshop for The Americas, Europe, and Australia.

Cubemen 2 is a fast-paced 3D strategy game where the player controls an army of Cubemen use to battle various enemies.

“Cubemen 2 is not just a fantastic game, it’s breaking new ground for an indie game on a Nintendo console,” said Nic Watt, Creative Director at Nnooo. “We already know Nintendo players love to create and share amazing artwork and creations in Miiverse. Now they can create levels, share them and battle with other players across multiple platforms! This is great, not only for Nintendo gamers, but for gaming in general.”
