Five Games You Can Look Forward To On the Wii In 2012

Nintendo’s motion-sensitive game system is just about done…but it’s going out with a bang.

To be honest, Nintendo did manage to do fairly well with the Wii.  Not only did it finally nail down using a typical CD format for its games (shying away from the cartridge and mini-discs it used previously), but it also effectively introduced motion gaming to the scene, with such favorites as Wii Sports and Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2.  And while it is on its last legs with the upcoming Wii U slated for release this fall, that doesn’t mean the party is completely over for it.  In fact, there are five games that will still make it worth playing this summer – that is, if the Wii is the only option you have.

Nintendo has another game coming out for the system this summer, and another of the “Operation Rainfall” RPG’s is coming from XSEED Games, of all people, to keep RPG fans coming back for more after Xenoblade Chronicles.  And that’s not to mention the co-op efforts that you can still play alongside fellow family members and friends.

So, without further ado, here are five Wii games you can look forward to over the rest of the year.

Lego Batman 2: DC Superheroes (Warner Bros.)

Travellers Tales did a great job with the original Lego Batman, bringing over the comic book universe into a form that all ages could certainly appreciate.  But they’re going even further with the sequel, as the second go-around will introduce a number of new heroes and villains, including Superman, Lex Luthor, Green Lantern and several others.  It will also expand the Lego universe bigger than any game before it, with an entire city to explore and hundreds of tasks to complete.  And it’ll have full voice acting, another first for a Lego game.  This one will fly its way into your comic book-loving hearts this June.
