The Best New Wii U Games of 2014

1. Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition


The previous edition of this delightful action platformer was fine enough. But this new and improved update refines a seemingly perfect game. This Lucha Libre inspired adventure features the Metroidvania level progression hat gamers love. Getting the chance to suplex and piledrive the demons spawned by Death itself is so awesome.

1. Hyrule Warriors


Hyrule Warriors can be summed up in just a few words – Dynasty Warriors meets The Legend of Zelda. Instead of you controlling Link and entering a series of caves and solving puzzles, you’ll use him and several other mainstay heroes/villains and kill hundreds of goons. The fun factor is pretty high here. Even though the repetition factor is also high at time, the presence of such a strong nod to Zelda’s longtime history and the game’s abundance of polish keeps this hack ‘n slasher fresh.
