Wii U Launch Games List Is Mighty Impressive

Nintendo has listed a total of 22 Wii U games with a November 18th release date, which is the same day Wii U launches in North America. Remember, Nintendo eShop titles are absent from the list, there are even more Wii U games that will be available for purchase on the console’s launch day, like Trine 2: Director’s Cut.

There are at least six titles in the list below that pique my interest. Which games do you plan on buying alongside a Wii U?

  • Rayman Legends
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops 2
  • Assassin’s Creed III
  • ZombiU
  • Mass Effect 3: Special Edition
  • Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition
  • TEKKEN TAG TOURNAMENT 2
  • Scribblenauts Unlimited
  • Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two
  • Rabbids Land
  • Just Dance 4
  • Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth
  • Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed
  • MADDEN NFL 13
  • NBA 2K13
  • TRANSFORMERS PRIME
  • Your Shape Fitness Evolved 2013
  • Game Party Champions
  • ESPN Sports Connection
  • Darksiders II
  • Nintendo Land
  • New Super Mario Bros. U

Thanks, Video Game Chronicles.

    1. Darksiders 2, Nintendo land, New super mario bros u, Rayman legends, call of duty black ops 2, assasin’s creed III, tekken tag tournament 2, zombiU, mass effect 3 se, scribblenauts unlimited, marvel avengers battle for earth and fatman arkham city.

        1. I pre ordered New Super Mario Bros U, ZombiU, Assassins Creed III, Rayman Legends, Pikmin 3, and Lego City Stories: Undercover with my Deluxe Wii U. Didn’t realize Epic Mickey 2 would be available. I’ll get that too.

          1. in canada we have eb games where i went on friday to preorder wiiU and there system was down and they wouldn’t let me raincheck and told me to come back another day. i came back and they let me preorder the wiiU but they didn’t have NSMBU in the list of release day games, and wouldn’t even take a preorder for it! useless store just panders to the sony crowd – they don’t have a single sign saying anything about the wiiU yet they are taking preorders.

      1. That’s the best launch line upof all time !!!!!!!!!!!!

        Zombiu , Nintendo land , AC3 , Darksider’s 2 , NSMBU ,Tekken tag 2 , ME3 , Sonic All star’s racing , Batman Arkhum City , Fifa 13 (UK) , Rayman Legends , Scrrible Naught’s , Black ops 2 .

        I wouldhappily own all of these , infact i will buy all of these at some stage , just a matter of chosing 4 of them for launch day .

          1. They all have new features , better graphics and extra content on wiiu , not to mention some are exclusives.

            Not saying i will buy them all , just saying i am interested in them.
            I have finished ME trilogy on my 360 but i am still interested in playing again on wiiu because you can play it on the gamepad like a handheld in your house , which mean’s its a better version ……

            Dark sider’s 2 , Batman ACAE , tekken tag 2 all have Unique amazing sounding features which are exlusive to the platform………….

            they aren’t just str8 port’s , they are either Enhanced cross platform or special edition version’s.

      2. My list:
        Nintendo Land, NSMBU, Rayman Legends, Black ops 2, Assasins Creed 3, ZombiU, Scribblenauts Unlimited, Arkham City (only a bit… already own it on PS3 with some DLC), and Epic Mickey 2.

      1. Is there any info on how long it’ll take before retail games will appear in the eShop? Or even which ones will appear? I can’t find anything about it myself and it’s annoying not knowing if I need to preorder or not. :x

        1. Going off NSMB2, probably instantly, or not long after. Of course they might have a slight hiccup, being a new system and service, but i think theyd want it up straight away, which i hope they do, i’ll probably be buying a few titles online, like NSMBU or something

          1. It’s really a pain for me because I want to go full digital this gen. I don’t mind waiting even a month or something for it to get online, as long as it does. Is there even a guarantee that all games will be in the eShop or just Nintendo and a select other popular ones? I don’t recall them mentioning it. I have to wait until the thing is out to see, I guess, but then that’s sort of too late. ._.

            1. it all depends on the developers really. i mean nintendo can’t really force developers to put the game out digitally too, but they can give them incentives to do so.

                1. that has absolutely nothing to do with how long it will take for games to be downloadable on the wii u, but alright. i respect your opinion sir/madam…..or both…whatever

            2. Well i remember them saying that all the games will be available digitally. I dont know if thats just the Nintendo published games, or every single one in the library

            3. http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2012-04-27-nintendo-published-3ds-wii-u-games-downloadable-on-release-day

              So far it looks like Nintendo published titles will be available the same day the physical copies get released. But I see no reason why non-published games wont. It will cost less then actually making mroe physical copies and if its true nintendo are giving more incentives then any other digital game distribution store then I dont see why they wont take advantage

              1. This was reassuring, thank you. I know that logically they SHOULD be in the eShop, but there’s always a chance something dumb will happen. I just choose to stress over stupid things instead of important IRL stuff. :(

    1. Nintendo Land looks fun! And has all the classic Nintendo characters! People just came up with some stupid idea that the game was free so now can’t imagine the idea of paying for the amazing game! How isn’t New Super Mario bros U a real Mario game? It’s got an updated art style and new levels. The name is lame, but the game is classic mario!

      1. I actually want NintendoLand, seeing as i spend Christmas and New Year with my family, it’ll be fun as hell having that game to play. Although i do need about 2 nore motion+ controllers, hmm

            1. Bad choice, it’s a scam, it would cost you less to get the Deluxe set with NintendoLand and get ZombiU later.

              1. Well kind sir , in UK its £300 for the nintendo land deluxe same as usa $350 .
                BUT , the zombiu Deluxe is £350 and has Zombiu instead of nintendo land AND a pro controler in the box ! .

                I think the Nintendo land deluxe is actualy about £310 or something the basic is £259.99 and the zombiu pro controler delux is £350 !!

                I will now do some research , to verify what you are saying..

        1. Fix your shit you didn’t spell sentence correct… Fix your Shit! is not a complete sentence. Why does my shit need be fixed? How shall I fix my shit? Where is my shit exactly… lol.

    2. The Wii had a Zelda at launch, was the launch line-up impressive? No, because that and Wii Sports were the only good games. The N64 had Mario 64, was the launch line-up impressive, more impressive than the Wii’s, but it still wasn’t great. This however looks like a mighty fine launch line-up, similar to the SNES’s launch line-up.

      1. yep , snes was the the best nintendo launch until this . the gamecube was decent aswell with Luigi’s mansion , Rogue sqaudron 2 , Super monkey ball debut , sonic adventure 2 battle and it had pikmin , eternal darkness and smash bros in the launch window .

        1. Well, Assassin’s Creed 2 and its sequels came out one year after the other in succession, all almost within the same quarter of the year (fall). And before you get off on the whole “They’re not even comparable to Zelda games,” it doesn’t matter whether they are or not. Fact is, Nintendo took well over three to five effin’ years to come out with a game that they easily could have released along another Zelda game on the same system. Granted, ALttP came out about five years after Zelda 2, and OoT came out about six years after that, but dude, that was a totally different era back then. That same level of patience is not going to hold up anymore. The hardest parts of Zelda to design should be the new puzzles and dungeons, but other than those things, designing Zelda at this point should be old hat. At this rate, waiting forever for a game like Skyward Sword — now THAT’S unrealistic. Nintendo has to be crazy to think gamers, hardcore or casual, would have THAT much patience, especially in this day and age.

          My take on why they’ve been taking so long? While some people were hammering away at Skyward Sword, others have been busy studying the HD landscape, and thus used Skyward Sword as a means to stall for time while they brought out HD Zelda. Common sense if you think about it.

          Well, either that, or they finally started making HD Zelda like NOW, and the game will be released three years from now, in which case that is so stupid.

          1. Maybe the dudes need time to come up with a decent story. The next Zelda is coming to a new console (Wii U) with a new controller. Zelda has been for a few generations now the game that Nintendo uses to show the power and full potential of their hardware.

            It took them that long to perfect the 1:1 motion controls on Skyward Sword. I haven’t played it yet, but I’m definitely going to buy it. When they finally do show a Zelda for Wii U it’s going to be the game that shows the full potential of the Wii U Game Pad. It’s going to be the first HD Zelda game. This will take time.

            It’s a guarantee that we’ll get a Zelda game on the Wii U. Iwata said he’s going for a 3 year development cycle this time so we may see it in 2015. And Zelda is different from AC because they have to figure out where it fits into the lengthy Zelda timeline. AC doesn’t have that kind of history or that kind of pedigree. Nintendo doesn’t mess around with their 1st party IPs. Especially the Trinity (Mario/Zelda/Metroid). They will make sure to take all the time they think is necessary to deliver the experience they’ve envisioned. There are a lot of good games to hold you over until then.

    3. I’m sure resident evil will be announced after launch cause I bet ubi has some deal with N to get exclusive prelaunch hype for the first zombie game on the console. Just wait till capcoms next announcements.

      1. I would easily be able to hold myself off for a few months with Darksiders II and Assassin’s Creed III. So I could wait. Besides, games should be released when they are good and ready, as long as there are decent games at launch, I can wait for the other games.

    1. I was thinking that two, but do you know the feeling during the holidays when you have almost “too many” games? I rather dedicate a whole month to Pikmin 3 rather than it sharing the spotlight.

      Make any sense?

      1. he’s not saying the rest of the games are on pc, he’s saying out of the games left, the only ones he wants he’d rather get on his pc.

      1. Those music levels blow my mind, as someone whos a massive fan of soundtracks and music in video games, as it really add to the game, those make my dick hard xD figuratively speaking of course

  1. Im buying black Ops (for that new “hardcore” thing Nintendo is introducing) and my sister is buying NSMBU. Looks like November 18th is my Christmas this year :3

    1. Im still not sold on Black Ops 2 yet, but if i get it, it’ll be after i get all the ones i really want, its in the pile along with Ninja Gaiden 3, NintendoLand, Darksiders 2 (because i already have it and yes i want to buy it again), and some other game i cant remember

          1. Graphics don’t matter unless it is xbox level and so far any game wii u has i more than good enough.But the gamepad thing sounds interesting.

    1. Not really that bad. I doubt that the entire gaming community will purchase AC3 or tekken or Black ops when they release 3 weeks before the Wii U launches. If you don’t play Nintendo games then you are probably used to games falling off the charts after 6 months so i will let it slide just for you.

      1. Black Ops 2 Comes out on November 13th In America… That Means only 5 days! So any person who buys it for the PS3 or 360 and has a Wii U pre-ordered should be promptly executed, theoretically speaking that is.

        1. So…why should they buy a version which will undoubtedly have even less players and likely support as the other console versions?

    2. Ports, that funnily enough, people are waiting for to buy on the WiiU, or are still selling and in the top 10 charts in Arkham City’s case.
      Oh, and then theres all the GOOD exclusives launch titles, rather than Perfect Dark, and Kameo, or whatever shite the ps3 got at launch, along with, surprise surprise, ports. No waaaaaaaaaaay!

        1. Does it matter? In the end, if people want it, and its going to sell, i fail to see what your point is, when EVERY launch of a console has ports.

        2. And i own a ps3, im aching to get on Borderlands 2, yet im going to wait a month to get AC3 on the WiiU, just due to its better performance, i can take it with me to the bathroom if i need to take a shit, and carry on playing or if someone else wants to use the tv, seeing as i’ll spending ALOT of time on that game, and i wont want to put it down, and the fact i can play online with some of these guys if theyre up for it.

        3. ” real HD consoles.”

          That is lol worthy. Since quite a few games couldn’t even do 720p let alone the amount of titles that could do native 1080p, that’s a real hd console? Most of these titles I could of got on my pc (the true HD console with +60fps on all games) yet i’m waiting for these versions.

          1. Also, not every PC game is “60 fps” (lol, they’re not even limited to that) regardless of what you do to it, so I guess you don’t actually have a PC if you didn’t know that.

            1. Umm i7, 16gb ram gtx570 sli, 1000w psu, g19 keyboard, g35 headset yeah I think I can handle any game this gen and probably halfway through next gen at 1080p+/+60fps.

              and wether you like it or not:

              Web definitions

              A video game console is an interactive entertainment computer or modified computer system that produces a video display signal which can be used with a display device (a television, monitor, etc.) to display a video game.

              A PC is technically a console. Has almost everything you find in a console, i even have a 360 controller for it

              1. Don’t bother arguing with Aeolus, he will just used a generic reply such as “tl:dr” or probably call you stupid or a faggot. It’s really quite sad.

              2. Bro almost all computers run on Microsoft software with a side of select few including apple. That means 90% of all computers with let you play games with 360 controller…

              3. LOL, SO WHAT? I can use my freaking DualShock on a PC, does that make it a PC controller? Does your PC come with a 360 controller?

    3. 16 of those are ports but 7 of them are exclusive and there’s still a lot more. out of the whole list of 50+ games, about 15 are exclusive, which is a lot more than the previous systems, say like PS3 with its 13 titles and 5 exclusives, xbox360 with its 18 titles and 7 exclusives or the wii with it’s 21 titles and 7 exclusives, this is really impressive and the biggest launch to date. they they learned their mistake from the 3DS launch and this shows it, plus many of these ports are still selling and ranked high in the charts.

      1. The real question is, are they good exclusives, or not just some run of the mill shovelware?

        Only a fanboy would be impressed with this list.

  2. Haha…this is impressive? So its a bunch of games out for other systems, for more money (price drops exist outside of Nintendo) and Nintendoland and a dated Mario game. Won’t go too hard on them for the list because most consoles don’t launch with great games anymore but to call this impressive is exaggerating it.

    1. You are just a peanut butter and jelly fish because we Wii U owners are getting Bayoneta 2 and Monster Hunter Ultimate as exclusives for are system.

    2. on wii, ppl like you says “wii sucks bcause third party don’t support it”

      now on wii u, nintendo manage to get bunch of third party to support it, and by third party the chances for it to be multiplatform is quite high.. for nintendo to get about 4-5 exclusive games from third party is already impressive…

      but ppl still complain “meh it’s just bunch of ports, available on other console”.. i can’t help but lol.. just like reggie said, it’s unsatiable.. or maybe just plain stupid

  3. I pre-ordered the Premium Bundle so I get Nintendo Land but I want NSMBU, Rayman Legends, Sega and Sonic All Stars Racing, and ZombiU. Also Pikmin 3 when It’s released.

      1. Well if you havnt played them on xbox here what you should get:
        Mario
        Batman
        Black ops
        rayman
        mass effect
        sonic
        and tekken but since these ports are 60 bucks you have to see reviews of it
        Stay away from zombi u cuz ubisoft makes garbage look great but once you play it its trash

        1. So you say ‘Stay away from zombi u cuz ubisoft makes garbage look great but once you play it its trash’, even though you’d already said you should get ‘rayman’…

          Seems legit.

    1. Thats a lot of ports son. Games now are $60 so id expect theyd up their quality not release ports and games lik nintendolqnd tbat look like shovelware trash. Mario looks so mediocre the only saving grace is the ability to use miis. For $60 bucks i can buy a bunch of quality games off steam. Or a better ps3/xbox title thats not an old port!

  4. Rayman Legends, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Assassins Creed 3, Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition and NSMBU. I will have Nintendo Land in the bundle.

  5. Looking forward to Darksiders II, Assassin’s Creed III, Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition, and Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge. I love action-adventure games.

  6. Rayman Legends
    Zombi U
    Tekken Tag Tournament 2
    epic mickey 2
    sonic all stars racing
    NSMB U

    Those are what I’m planning to get but… I’ll only have enough for three of them first day. I’m hoping for NSMB U, Zombi U and cant decide on the third game yet. Decisions decisions!

  7. What I’m getting from launch through Christmas
    Rayman Legends
    Call of Duty: Black Ops 2
    Assassin’s Creed III
    ZombiU
    Scribblenauts Unlimited
    Just Dance 4 (My sisters love this series)
    MADDEN NFL 13 (I love football and this is the only NFL game on the market so I have no choice)
    Darksiders II
    Nintendo Land (With the bundle)
    New Super Mario Bros. U

  8. Pre-ordered a regular WIIU(out of deluxe at Gamestop :/) with black ops II, Scribblenauts, and ZombiU. I’ll probably be back for Mario Bros. U. Heard preorders will probably done for the regular additions some time tomorrow too, so glad I’ve got mine already.

    1. Why force yourself to wait so long for it? Just get one at launch if you’re planning on getting one at some point anyway. I don’t see the point in holding back.

      1. Actually, I think it’s a smart idea for him to wait until next year. Because that’s when most people will have the Wii U and th hype for it will go down soon after it launches. SO waiting until next year for it is a smart idea.

      2. I don’t see how a year is so long. I’ve done it with every console I purchased. Why would I get it at launch if there aren’t any games that I want? So far Bayonetta 3 and Pikmin 3 have my eye but I think those will be released next year, I like to have a bigger selection of games besides those two. I also wait a year so I can get more bundle options. One final thing, sometimes the first wave of consoles have issues, sometimes. Now you see my point? Don’t fucking assume.

  9. definitely interesting:

    raymen legends
    assassins creed 3
    mario wii u
    nintendo land (included in premium in europe/america, yay °°)
    mass effect 3
    sonic and all stars racing transformed (maybe getting it for 3ds tho)
    epic mickey 2

    maybe:
    zombi u
    tekken tag tournament 2

    but honestly… there will be SO many games/franchises for the wii u…..(and i also have the 3ds XL + a computer for gaming obviously), that i doubt i’d buy games like zombi u, etc.

        1. Wii U is actually among the worst versions, look up the latest gameplay trailer on YT, loads of framerate issues. Which ironically, don’t happen on the PS3 or 360′s footage. Gee, I wonder why…

            1. You guys are truly pathetic, and the guys who replied. Time to crush your dreams:

              That is neither 1080p, nor 60fps. Throughout the video, framerate issues are brought up and they called it the latest build. Sorry, but you guys just got owned. I post facts and you virgins post PR talk. That’s the difference between me and you Nintendorks.

                  1. They specifically said it’s the latest build, and the 360/PS3 versions have no such framerate issues if you looked it up. Stop making excuses.

                1. No seriously AELOUS WAKE THE FUCK UP !!!! I have SOLID PROOF in an interview in an official Magazine with Steve Lycett of SUMO DIGITAL , He said the wiiu version is the best looking with the best graphics and textures because and i quote ”the wiiu has way way more memory than the other HD consoles” .

                  What is that video ??? how old is it ??? it’s not credible for you to just think you can see the framerate through a 3ofps youtube video .

                  Get this into your head man = Steve lyvett of sumo digital has OFFICIALY CONFIRMED that the wiiu version of Sonic all stars racing is the best looking one .

                  What do you have to say about that ???

                  1. You did not watch the fucking video, that was mere days ago and was posted, you fucking idiot. Trying to water down the truth because you don’t like it, LOL CLASSIC.

                    Never listen to PR talk, let them show you the games, not tell you what it’s going to be like.

                    And no, he didn’t confirm SHIT. His comments said “maybe a little better”. How the FUCK is that a confirmation? In what way did that confirm anything?

                    Do you know what “maybe” even means???

                    1. Nope he said ”The wiiu version is the best looking and and had less compression on sound and textures because the wiiu has way more memory than the other HD consoles.

                      And dude , the framerate will be better than the old 360 and ps3 , guaranteed. I doubt any wiiu games are going to come out with a framerate better.

                      Also the wiiu version will look just a bit better than 360 and ps3 , cus its a multiplatform game . the exct same game is on the old wii In SD ……

                      the wiiu version has a lot of extra exclusive content (confirmed) new features like gyro scope steering and other mad shit , and you can do multiplayer with a screen each , and it has the best graphics .

                      AND although unconfirmed anywhere as of yet , it probably (almost definatelt) has the best resoloution and framerate.

                      It’s not really suprising when we are comparing to 6-7 year old console’s is it ??…………………

                2. its like i remember you saying zombiu will be 720p 30fps.

                  GUESS WHAT ??? ubisoft confirmed in New york that it’s Native 1080p 60fps ……..

                  Suck it troll . Most wiiu games should be full HD , except the lazy ports which are a decent 720p anyway….

                  1. Show me this confirmation of “60 fps”, it’s disturbing you have to lie about games to feel better about your overclocked 360. That’s downright embarrassing, to tell you the truth.

                    1. Dude a ubisoft rep was telling people in Newyork

                      ”zombiu is native 1080p 60fps” …….
                      Darksiders 2 rep ”wiiu version has better graphics the wiiu is superior”
                      ”fifa 13 developer -wiiu version has best graphics blah blah blah ”
                      ”COD developer – Full HD 60Fps with 2 screens running at once” .

                      DUDE – its more powerfull than the ps3 and 360 , considerably more powerfull .
                      it can read discs 3 times as fast as they do……

                    2. Wii U daily is not a good source, they didn’t provide any quotes, no evidence of their claims either. They never do. Until you find a quote with Ubisoft saying this, then this is simply not a source. Anybody can make these claims or take PR spin the wrong way.

                      I have not seen a single quote claiming 60fps and everybody I knew who played one at the event ALL could tell it was running at 30 fps.

                      Stop embarrassing yourself and stop butchering quotes.

                    3. Why is there a dick in your mouth, Amir? In denial much? A Ubisoft rep is indeed telling the truth. Rayman Legends on the Wii U does run 1080p at 60 fps. Quit being a dick and fucking accept it!

            1. Amazing how limited and internet geekified your vocabulary is. Guess that’s to be expected when one is too stupid to argue any points.

          1. you are talking out your ass you sony cum drinker there is no framerate issues at all with wii-u. why dont you go to a sony or xbox fagboy site and talk shit about the pussystation4 and the xcock720 that wont exist until 2014

              1. Look at the Sony/Microsoft drone who thinks the PS4 and Xbox 720 are going to be as powerful as modern PC specs. Its seriously laughable.

                1. Incomplete 2 months away from launch. Yeah, they have plenty of time to work on the extreme framerate issues show in that video alright, you can literally SEE the choppiness.

                  Fanboys calling it 60 fps…? THIS SHIT BARELY MAINTAINS 30.

                  1. I have 3 questions for you.
                    1. Why do you care?
                    2.Are you making the game, helping in it’s development?
                    3. Why do you choose to insult and cut down others whose opinions are different than you own?

                    1. Asks why I care.
                      Clearly proving false info from fanboys to be incorrect with video evidence and comments from representatives.
                      Dodges the entire situation to turn right into a whiny little bitch.

                  2. Still in denial that the next PS4 and Xbox 720 will be weak compared to your expectations. Can’t wait for you drones to start crying about the specs when they get announced in the next year or two.

          2. Are you butthurt ???? sumo digital recently said the wiiu has ”way way more memory than other ‘HD’ consoles and this is the best looking version of the game with better sound and textures ”.

            I have the full article here in ONM uk . And they also say the dev kits have been changed recently .

      1. Let me guess, some shit about it being graphically inferior blah blah blah, when its probably going to be similar to Mario Kart 7 in terms of visuals, which looks great, not to mention he can play it anywhere, which is great for a title like that.

        1. well, i figured he was implaying the graphics being bad

          tbh, im not really one to care a lot for graphics…
          sure, i can appreciate it if a game looks real good, like assassins creed 3 for example

          but… to me, the gameplay is way more important than graphics… as long as im having fun, its fine
          have to wait and see which version will be more appealing to me

  10. So far just Nintendo Land in my Deluxe bundle, might get Epic Mickey 2. *sigh* If only Aliens wasn’t delayed it would DEFINITELY have been my day 1 purchase. If it was because the game isn’t ready I understand, but still.

  11. Zombi U
    Batman Arkham City Armored Edition
    New Super Mario Bros U
    Nintendo Land (Since it comes with the deluxe Wii U I pre-ordered)
    possibly Call of Duty Black Ops 2

    To Rent:
    Assassin’s Creed 3
    Tekken Tag Tournament 2
    Just Dance 4

    1. And I’ll be sure to get Lego City Undercover and Aliens: Colonial Marines once those are out. Pre-ordered Lego City Undercover.

  12. ZombiU, Rayman Legends, Assassins Creed 3, Darksiders 2, New super mario bros. U and a Pro. This has better games at launch than the 3DS had in all of 2012.

  13. Of the ones listed, I’m getting:

    -Rayman Legends
    -Assassin’s Creed III
    -TEKKEN TAG TOURNAMENT 2
    -Darksiders II
    -New Super Mario Bros. U

    Nintendo Land because it’s bundled and maybe Epic Mickey 2 if it doesn’t suck.

  14. Day 1 i’m getting:

    Deluxe w/ Nintendo Land
    New Super Mario Bros. U
    Assassin’s Creed 3
    ZombiU
    Darksiders 2
    Rayman Legends

    AND i’m going to wait till christmas for (most of these i already got but i purposefully missed the DLC just so i can experience them with new controls, and be able to play them on a portable device.)

    Arkham City
    Mass Effect 3
    Black Ops 2
    LEGO City Stories

  15. I’ll get me the Premium Bundle, with New Super Mario Bros U and ZombiU. I’ll wait a bit for LEgo City Undercover. That looks mighty fine for some reason.

  16. Many of these are not set to be available at launch but instead some days before. Don’t ask why.
    Also, I’m disappointed there aren’t eShop games here. I know that they aren’t retail games but PSN and XBLA games have had download cards (which are locked to a certain game, rather than just a points card) for years and it seems like a missed opportunity, I believe Nintendo fans are much more used to retail and this could wean them off of it. I’m tired of Nintendo saying “but we’re different” just step up and play the fucking game. You give the same features as the PS3 and Xbox 360 and then maybe, just maybe, you’ll be ready to fight.

    1. hand down nintendo sold more than microsoft and sony combined wtf are you talking about.there is no fight when the competition is getting slaughtered

  17. I’ve pre-ordered the Premium Wii U which will have NintendoLand. I’m also getting:

    - Call of Duty: Black Ops 2
    - ZombiU
    - Mass Effect 3
    - New Super Mario Bros (World…)U
    - Assassin’s Creed 3
    - Alien Colonial Marines
    - Darksiders 2
    - Pikmin 3
    - Batman Arkham City: Armoured Edition
    - Rayman Legends
    - Trine 2: Director’s Cut
    - Sonic & Sega All-Star Racing Transformed
    - Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
    - Bayoneta 2
    I could go on and on but really… I’m going to save up to get all these on launch day and during the launch window.

      1. Actually, funny enough I do own a PS3 and Xbox 360.
        I’m only getting some of these games is because I find the Wii U Gamepad could give me a new experience whilst playing my games. I’m not buying them because they are on a Nintendo platform now, I’m just buying them because I have a keen interest in the Wii U and some of the games I always wanted to get but most of the places round where I live are sold out of the games I wanted.

  18. Batman arkham city armored edition and zombi u and assains creed 3 with nintendo land nsmbu and transformers prime cant wait to get thm ALL :)

  19. Nintendo is giving us Bayonetta 2 as an exclusive. Imagine how many more exclusives that Nintendo has acquired. Monster hunter alone is powerful enough to keep the Wii U in first place during it’s life cycle in Japan. Throw in the fact that every TV that’s affordable until the next console cycle in 2017/18 will only be 1080P resolution. It feels like Sony and Microsoft will know why Nintendo are legendary :). Wait until we here they are making the true sequel to Chrono trigger, or that final fantasy numbered is becoming a Nintendo exclusive, not to mention metal gear solid 5 on the Wii U. Launch lineup for me is only FIFA 13 and AC3.

    1. You: GRRRRRRRR!!!! I’M A TROLL!!1 CAN YOU TELL?! I LIKE SONUDING LIKE A JACKASS AND I R TYPED THIS OUT BY BANGING MY HEAD AGAINST THE KEYBOARD!!! GRRRRRRRRRR!!!

      Me: You do know that in england they are trying to pass a law that helps people track down trolls like you and fine you… fail much?

      1. hmhmhmhmhHAHAHAHAHA,i told you,i am a hacker and no1 can beat or find me so stfu and listent what am i telling you because ur money vill vanish if you buy a nintendo console again

    2. you talking shit i played the game for ps3 and wii-u and the wii-u version graphics looks 100x better than the ps3 version. see you probably had too much cum in your eye’s and couldn’t see the game properly next time wipe the babies off your face before you open your mouth

      1. Shhh don’t make him angry. He is a 10 year old COD hacker, he will turn your xbox live avatar into funny clown and it will be an inconvenience for you.

    3. Mr. von Scrotum, you’re a fucking loser and poser. Now wonder your white tiger is jealous about your boyfriend Roy. Batman: Arkham City: Armored Edition for the Wii U haven’t been released yet so your judgment is INVALID! BTW, Armored Edition is not down scaled like the X360 and PS3.

    1. The “ports” you talk about like Assasin’s Creed and stuff are MUCH better than the origionals… just saying. Some have new plotlines and playable charavters(like Ninja Gaiden) and all of them have better graphics!!!(like Assasin’s Creed) I mean if u r spending $60 for a game, might as well be the best one it can be right??? Also the remakes are not just “remakes” they have tons of added gameplay and features. I fail to see your point.

    2. It would be a port if it was the exact same game with nothing added to it. These are different however. In addition, rehashes that have good gameplay like Mario are successful because it sticks to the core gameplay mechanic that made it awesome in the beginning. If you change the formula for the sake of it being different and not a rehash it could become the game’s downfall because the gameplay made no sense, that is if it’s a main title in the series.

  20. There are 9 games I want out of those 22!! 9!!! Rayman Legends, ZombiU, Tekken Tag Tourney 2, Just Dance 4, Marvel Avengers Battle For Earth, Sonic & Allstars Racing Transformed, Nintendoland, Mass Effect 3, and New Super Mario Bros. U!!! Oh and they didnt even mention Pikmin 3 which comes out later on which I am ALSO GETTING! So 10 games AT LEAST in the first YEAR(really couple of months) of the Wii U’s life cycle. That is more games than I have for the Xbox 360 right now…..which I have owned for yeeeaaars…

    1. rayman legends I keep on seeing everywhere in the US as a dec 4th release date so I am very confused..is it a launch title or not, and if it is how come every site(From best buy to gamestop to amazon) shows it as a dec 4th game

    1. The 360 had ports of bad games, and shite exclusives. Its pretty game amazing considering, and no, they arent all ports so atfu

  21. What an amazing lineup! I am going to go with ZombiU, NSMBU, Assassin’s Creed 3 and maybe Rayman Legends.

    I still haven’t decided if I am going to get the Nintendo Land bundle or the ZombiU one. The way I see it, it’s a choice between Nintendo Land and the Pro Controller.

    I just don’t see the point of using the Pro Controller. At least, until Super Smash Bros…

  22. Rayman Legends, Assassin’s Creed III, Mass Effect 3, Epic Mickey 2, Sonic & All-Stars Racing, Scribblenauts Unlimited, Nintendoland, Darksiders II, New Super Mario Bros. U

  23. I’m glad I waited for those games that are already out. I’m going to buy the Wii U versions to support a new console. I CAN’T FUCKING WAIT!

  24. 13 Total I want out of all of them displayed on Nintendo’s website:
    1.Aliens: Colonial Marines
    2.Lego City Undercover
    3.Pikmin 3
    4.Scribblenuats Unlimited
    5.Zombiu
    6.Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition
    7. Assassin Creed 3
    8.Rayman Legends
    9.Sonic All Stars Racing Transformered
    10.Call of Duty Black Ops 2
    11.New Super Mario Bros. U- Pre-ordered
    12.Nintendoland-Bundled
    13.Mass Effect 3

    Enjoy reading that….

  25. Rayman Legends and ZombiU. Everything else I’ve either already played or can get elsewhere.

    Maybe, just maybe, I’ll get Arkham City. But considering I’ve already played and beaten it on PS3, buying it for Wii U is a very low possibility.

    Oh, and I guess New Super Mario Bros. U, but that’s even lower than Arkham City for me.

  26. New Super Mario Bros
    Rayman Legends(I am very confused about the release date, here it shows it coming out on launch day yet other sites have it for Dec 4th(In the US)
    Scribblenauts Unlimited(Other sites show this as a late december release)
    Epic Mickey 2 The Power of Two
    Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed
    I would LOVE the Wii Fit U and Pikmin but I Guess those games are not going to be released for a while

  27. Hmm I dunno they look ok but there’s only 2 that I’m defo wanting which is Nintendoland and New Super Mario Bros. U! I might get Rayman too!

  28. On November 18th my wallet will be raped by New Super Mario Bros. U, Assassin’s Creed III, Batman Arkham City: Armored Edition, Mass Effect 3, Darksiders II, Rayman Legends, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Zombi U, Scribblenaughts Unlimited, and Nintendoland (because of the premium package). Man I have saved up for these games for a LONG time and I’m finally going to be able to get them. I wonder when Ninja Gaiden 3 will come out on Wii U as well as Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate?

  29. Nothing as impressive as a bunch of ports.

    I am sorry but this Nintendo crap is getting old, how does no one see this ever repeating trend they constantly fall into. Majority of their games are crap, of course they will have a bunch of launch titles, does it mean anything? No.

    The 3DS has a huge library, nearly over 50% of those games are movie games, lego games or disney games. It’s pathetic. The Wii U is looking just a childish the more I see, they claimed it was for the hardcore gamers for once but the system itself is not even hardcore, so how can it ever please the hardcore crowd.

    December Wii U games release blows also, more childish crap for my supposed next generation console.. I have had this thing a couple days and I am already regretting buying it, all the ports for show it’s lack of power to the PS3 a system that is going on 7 years.. then the only other games they have are the basic crap Nintendo constantly supports bunch of childish party games.

    ZombiU was over hyped trash by the way, it sucks and is just another boring zombie game, with sub par graphics and depth.

    1. Says the troll who’s mad and jealous at Nintendo’s success. The Wii U isn’t looking childish as you proudly assume. You’re fucking blind to see that the Wii U is also aiming for the hardcore market. Games like Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge, and Assassin’s Creed III. You don’t know fucking shit about the Wii U games and how much it sells.

      Saying “ports” are for pussies and whiners… and you (and the rest of the Sony drones, Xbots and graphic whores) are one of many. There are definitive versions on the Wii U that both X360 and PS3 fail to deliver– Batman: Arkham City: Armored Edition, CoD: BO II, FIFA Soccer 13, and Aliens: Colonial Marines.

      You need to quit sucking on Sony’s dick and respect Nintendo. Blood, guts and shit don’t sell and you know it. Nintendo innovates games and systems and they’re leading the video game revolution. Respect it! Get N or STFU!
