The Nintendo Wii is an extremely popular video game console. Thanks to the Nintendo company that has focused on simple gameplay mechanics and motion controls, Nintendo Wii games can be played by everyone with ease. In today’s list, we’re going through some of the best Nintendo Wii titles that we think are worth a try in 2021.
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
You knew we were going to feature The Legend of Zelda franchise on this Nintendo Wii games list and here we are with The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. This is a title that puts players back in the iconic role of Link. With that said, the game serves as the first storyline for The Legend of Zelda franchise, where once again, Link must battle against an evil force to save his childhood friend, Zelda.
Here the player is given a new area to explore hovering in the clouds and at the time it was a game that focused heavily on motion controls. Since then, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword has been ported to the Nintendo Wii U and even the newest hybrid platform from Nintendo, the Switch.
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess is one of the Nintendo Wii games that was also released on the Nintendo GameCube at launch. Players are given a darker-toned Zelda title with players taking on the role of Link as usual, who are forced to save Hyrule from being controlled by a parallel dimension. As you might expect, it’s an action-adventure game with lots of battles, puzzle-solving, and lots of areas to explore.
Again, just like our previous installment, which focused more on using different motion controls for the Wii console, this was a bit of a mixed bag with fans. Even so, at the time, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess was a game that received critical acclaim, and for many years it was one of the games players noticed with the commercal franchise.
Super Mario Galaxy – Nintendo Wii games
Super Mario Galaxy is a brand new Mario IP for the Nintendo Wii. This game launched in 2007, once again acting as a 3D action-adventure platformer. Here players will travel to different planets to get Power Stars by completing objectives or fighting against a boss.
Likewise, Super Mario Galaxy develops in 3D with several small planets that allow the player to quickly run around them. The game will mimic a bit like Super Mario 64 or even Even the latest installment of the beloved Super Mario Odyssey franchise.
Super Mario Galaxy 2 – Nintendo Wii games
What was considered an updated version of Super Mario Galaxy has actually become a standalone sequel. In Super Mario Galaxy 2, we find a giant-sized Bowser who has become stronger while eating Grand Stars. Breaking into Princess Peach’s castle, Bowser kidnaps the princess and heads to the center of the universe with his plan to create his unique empire.
Now Mario once again travels across the galaxy defeating Bowser’s minions in an attempt to rescue the princess. While much of the power found in the original Super Mario Galaxy goes back, there are some unique types to be found here. For example, players will have a new move that allows Mario to smash large objects or even dig deep in the ground.
