Nintendo touting 23 games for Wii U launch

by: Jeremy -
The big question following Nintendo’s Wii U preview conference a few weeks back was which games would be available when the console hits stores on November 18. There are a lot of titles shown at the event, but nearly all of them were labeled as being available during the system’s “launch window”, which is actually a 4-5 month span (up until March 31, 2013). Now, Nintendo is hoping to put an end to the confusion with a firm list of 23 titles that will arrive in stores alongside their new console.

Confirmed to be arriving in stores on or by November 18 (some may actually be available a few days earlier) are the following titles:
  • Assassin’s Creed III
  • Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops 2
  • Darksiders II
  • Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two
  • EA Sports FIFA Soccer 13
  • ESPN Sports Connection
  • Game Party Champions
  • Just Dance 4
  • New Super Mario Bros. U
  • Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge
  • Nintendo Land
  • Rabbids Land
  • Scribblenauts Unlimited
  • SiNG Party
  • Skylanders Giants
  • Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed
  • Tekken Tag tournament 2 Wii U Edition
  • Transformers Prime
  • Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper
  • Wipeout 3
  • Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2013
  • ZombiU
There are roughly 33 more games expected to launch before Spring, but those dates have not been finalized. You have to admit, this is a much better lineup than the Wii launched with back in 2006. There seems to be a lot more third party support happening this time around, even if a couple of the games have been available previously on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
