Destructoid's most wanted Wii / Wii U games of 2012 photo
Destructoid's most wanted Wii / Wii U games of 2012
by Jonathan Holmes

There were a few excellent third-party releases on the Wii in 2011 (Bit.Trip Complete immediately comes to mind), but for the most part, last year marked the end of an era for the console. The Wii didn't even get the new Sonic game! When Sonic won't even slum it on your console, you know that it's over.

Still, thanks to a strong first-party lineup, the little white object of hardcore hatred had a pretty great year. There was a small but incredibly high quality library of releases, including The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Kirby's Return to Dreamland, and (in Europe) Xenoblade Chronicles.

Surprisingly, 2012 is looking just as good for the Wii. Depending on your tastes, some may say this year will be even better than 2011 (which isn't saying a lot, but bear with me). Destructoid has been ticking off all our anticipated titles for the coming year, beginning with the Xbox 360 and PS3 lineups, and now Tony Ponce and I are here to tell you which Wii games you should want the most (with a bonus Wii U section for pure overexcited speculation). Let's get this show on the road!

Team Fortress 2 and Camacho get Rhythm Heaven Fever

Rhythm Heaven Fever infects North America February 2012

Friends, we've weathered hard times these past months. Nintendo faithful across the land have endured quite the drought. So few compelling titles may have tested the resolve of less devout fans, but not us. No, we patiently w...

Someone put me in the best video ever made

Sometimes I really want to pack it all up and quit while I'm ahead.  That's how I felt when I first heard that I'll have a bit part in the upcoming XBLA/PC/WiiWare title Retro City Rampage. I wasn't sure it could get an...
