Not one, not two, but three retail games are set to launch on Nintendo’s decade-old, last-gen Wii home console system by November 2016.
The action starts next week with Let’s Sing 2017, a rhythm-based music game developed by Voxler and published by Ravenscourt. It will arrive in European retailers on October 14 alongside physical distributions for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
In late October, Ubisoft will bring Just Dance 2017 to “all video game consoles and PC” in North America and Europe. Just Dance 2017, announced at E3 2016, is also planned to launch on Nintendo “NX” in March 2017.
Finally, Voxler and Ravenscourt team up again to release The Voice in Europe sometime this November. The Voice is based on NBC’s popular reality television singing competition presented by Alison Haislip, Carson Daly, and Christina Milian.
It’s worth noting that Wii games are compatible with the Wii U system. Why these three games are launching on Wii is rather interesting, however. And to be fair, Just Dance 2017 will also see a simultaneous release on Wii U.
With Paper Mario: Color Splash having launched on Friday, there’s not much left on the horizon for Wii U in 2016. Nordic Games will release their action RPG Darksiders: Warmastered Edition on October 25, and physical versions of previously released indie games include SteamWorld Heist and Runbow Deluxe.
Wii debuted in North America on November 19, 2006. Nintendo discontinued the hardware in 2013.
