Some folks have shown concern over the Wii U's fate, especially considering it's missing out on some big third-party games like Assassin's Creed Unity and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. However, Nintendo released a reassuring schedule for 2014 and 2015 on its Twitter that gives gamers an idea of just what kind of releases they're in for.

2014 looks chock full of gaming goodness, between this month's Hyrule Warriors, next month's Bayonetta 2, and Captain Toad and Super Smash Bros. coming for the holiday season. The schedule also features several third-party games, including Disney Infinity 2.0, Skylanders Trap Team and Sonic Boom.

2015, however, is where things get interesting. We'll see the likes of Splatoon, Xenoblade Chronicles X, Yoshi's Woolly World, Mario Maker, Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, StarFox and Zelda 2015 through the year. In addition, the "Project" games introduced at E3 that were merely concepts for the system, Guard and Giant Robot, apparently seem to be coming as full game releases as well.

There's no word on release dates yet (outside of Hyrule on September 26th and Bayonetta on October 24th), but expect more details soon.
