Nintendo has always been known for producing some great role-playing games, and the Wii U RPGs on this list certainly back that claim. It's tough to say that Xenoblade Chronicles X isn't the best Wii U RPG- the scope of the game is massive, and scale and variety of enemies to battle is really impressive. Other great role-playing games for Wii U include Child of Light and Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE, a fantastic Wii U JRPG.
