Nintendo recently released a trailer showcasing the Wii U's exclusive games coming to the console in the next coming months. These titles are sure to give the console the bump it needs.

The 32 GB Wii U is now $299 after launching at $349 starting Sept. 20. The price drop will also factor into increased sales.
