Nintendo Unveils The Miiverse’s Top 3 Games For Wii U / 3DS

Nintendo has unveiled the most popular games as measured via traffic on their Miiverse social media website / Wii U application.  This year didn’t feature the two big marquee releases for Wii U – Star Fox: Zero and The Legend of Zelda Wii U, as both of those games got delayed into 2016. However, it was strong year nonetheless for both platforms with releases including the surprise hit Splatoon, the ever inventive Mario Maker, monsters causing mayhem in Monster Hunter 5 on Nintendo 3DS among other great titles.

So which games made the top 3 per platform? I won’t leave you in suspense… according to Nintendo the top 3 choices according to fans on Miiverse where:

Wii U

  1. Splatoon
  2. Super Mario Maker
  3. Xenoblade Chrincles X


  1. The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D
  2. The Legend of Zelda: Triforce Heroes
  3. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate

Did any of these top six games surprise you? For me, it’s not shocking to see Xenoblade in the top 3 for Wii U even though the game has only been out for under two weeks. Fans have been anticipating its release ever since it was revealed several E3s ago. I also really enjoyed the fresh kicks that Splatoon introduced over the summer – with its focus on team based objectives rather than traditional KDR it was a refreshing take on the established Team Death Match formula.  Now that I think about it, my family ended up purchasing almost all of these games…
