Shane Shatterfield, Editor in Chief of Gametrailers has announced in today’s episode of Invisible Walls that the Wii U launch line-up is looking “pretty damn good”. Whether Shatterfield is privy to insider information from Nintendo remains to be seen, but it’s certainly encouraging if it’s true. Which games would you like to see at the Wii U launch?
“One thing that I can say without getting in any trouble is that the launch line-up for the Wii U is going to surprise people. It’s going to be pretty damn good.”
Pretty good to hear. I just want the games for the Wii U to be fantastic.
IS IT JUNE YET??????
What?! IT ISN’T? FML..):
I’m seriously GOING OUT OF MY MIND here waiting for E3…WHY!? WHY MUST IT BE SO PAINFUL!!??!!
Can’t wait to see it.
Is good to hear that
Just give me Mario and Pikmin WiiU and I’m happy! :)
I would love for a new naruto game to be a launch title. That would have me set!
Nice to know, wait. It’s not confirmed. *Goes back to where he was*
Not so good, yet… I mean, where’s the Nintendo classics?
I hope they show some at E3.
Nintendo is saving that information for E3.
Leave luck to heaven
Yeah, we don’t want another 3DS/Vita-style of launch.
Vita?WTF is Vita? a yogurt?
Nope. Its a form of waste.
This evoked a genuine lol from me :D
I didn’t think waste broke so easily…
Um, wasn’t that everybody’s high school experience?
I’m gay! :D Facebook me,
Either one should work.
I see you play PS3..
Good Very good indeed. Even more ecxited now! :D
I wanna see Pikmin 3, Sin and Punishment 3, new zelda, new f-zero, new Star Fox, and a new Metroid. But I don’t think they can make a new everything all at once.
I think we’re twins because I want the same exact things.
SOMEBODY PLEASE SEND THIS TO NINTENDO!
+1 and Mario at launch!
to be honest im really sick of mario, becoming more generic than call of duty. nsmb, nsmb wii, and now nsmb 2 and a game based on that nsmb mii for wii u. i beat these games relatively quickly, and although they were fun while i played them, it really ended quick and had low replayability. felt the same way about super mario 3d land. heres to hoping for some innovation and replay value mario!
there will be pikmin 3 at launch. And at e3 they’ll show the new star fox wii U game retro studios has been workin on. a new zelda… years off. f-zero not yet but miyamoto says its a perfect fi. sp3…..idrealyknow metroid… not so sure either but a new mario bros will be shown as well.
a good rpg would be nice for the wii u
If nothing comes up at launch, you can always get Xenoblade, Last Story and Pandora’s Tower.
Dragon Quest X?
Pretty damn good to hear!
I want a name change :(
To be fair, that won’t really affect the console or its games at all.
yes it will. the general public knows about the name “wii u”. It is too close to the launch to change the name now. Some people will get confused. and it will affect sales
No, it’s not too close. Nintendo are thinking about changing the name – and if they are, then it’ll be announced at E3.
honestly… im not that excited by the current known launching games… im totally a nintendo fan, mostly because of their games, but the games that are announced until today, dont represent what nintendo stands for… i eventually will buy the wii u, because of smash bros, zelda, the plausible star fox, well… i know nintendo will surprise us with so much enjoyable games… but right now… i dont think ill buy the wii u at the release day, please nintendo… amaze me at E3… prove me wrong!!
Pikmin 3, and possibly New Super Mario Bros. Mii as a pack-in game with the Wii U
i think Nintendo might want to make money off of Pikmin 3, but i do think new mario bros mii would make a good pack in.
gorms nintendo gorms, vita is great
Anything that isn’t a modern shooter. A bright colourful adventure game would suffice.
So, not the 3DS launch.

I’m looking forward to the “slightly after launch” lineup. If it’s anything like the first Wii, then we’ll have an Intelligent Systems quickie title followed by a Fire Emblem, at least two Third Party RPGs, some western action titles in multiplayer co-op, and something totally out of left field from deep within Nintendo themselves, that will be hyped to frenzy at the Wii U launch parties.
Oh yeah, and Dragon Quest TEN Online.
“The enrichment center would like me to inform you that the Wii U launch lineup…is looking pretty…good.”
Alright! Now’s my chance to impress people with my Chell impression! Ahem…
“… … …”
“Pretty damn good” can be relative though. He technically “can’t get into any trouble” by saying the lineup is good even if it might only have games that have already appeared on other systems by that point. I’m glad it builds excitement for E3 though. Man, I can’t wait. It’s a much better wait than last year, cuz we know now that a whole lot of good stuff is definitely coming, unlike last year, when we didn’t really know what was going to happen.
He did say it’s going to surprise people, so it couldn’t be just games already out.
OH YEAH BRING IT ON E3 ;)
aw yeah. I hope for at least one awesome rpg as a launch title.
damn it why can’t this year go by faster >=(
Arkham City, Metal Gear AND Ninja Gaiden?!? :O That would really surprise me! :D This has hyped me up quite a bit!
Sickr check this out: http://wiiudaily.com/2012/04/wii-u-launch-titles/
It really is looking good so far. Leave luck to heaven.
Pokemon, Star Fox, The Legend of Zelda, Mario Kart, and New Super Mari Bros.
I love Nintendo exclusives just as much as anybody. Nothing gets me as excited as a new Mario or Metroid game. But looking at the few announced WiiU games, isn’t anyone else excited about the prospect of being able to also get things like Assassin’s Creed and Darksiders without having to buy a second console? I’m thrilled that Nintendo is luring in more third party developers. WiiU is going to be absolutely amazing!
This is indeed a great year for Nintendo
The launch lineup better be pretty f’n good! With the Wii failing and the 3DS having a weak launch lineup, Nintendo can’t afford to botch this. I, for one, can’t wait to get my hands on a Wii U…I’m just curious what I’m going to be playing at launch.
After Xenoblade, I have no doubt. This lineup and the games after that will be great.
*crosses fingers and toes* :)
Give me Poke’mon Snap 2 during the life span of the Wii U and I will be happy.
u and me both pal
I hope this statement means that Nintendo purposely didn’t talk about any first party titles last year so that they’ll surprise the hell out of everyone this summer. I’m hyped but I’m also anticipitating disappoitment.
Well, yeah. It would be kinda boring to say every single available title right off the bat a whole year before the main event. E3 is all about surprises, and those who can pull it off are the winners of E3.

I’d love to see a new Zelda. Unlikely though :(
Tekken Tag 2 if it’s out by then :D
it should be great!
My current projections show that my temp job will end in late may/early June… Maybe I’ll be home for E3. Which would be kickass.
But if they hire me on full time that’s fine too lol
Star Fox, Kirby, Mario, Conduit 3, Mario Kart, Resident Evil! Please take note Nintendo and third party developers.
But I am excited for Aliens and Lego City Stories =D. And the next Smash Bros once that’s finished (hopefully not rushed).
Uh oh… did he really say that? Well, looks like I’m going to be pretty damn poor for a while after launch.
I hope they change the Wii U name its stupid!
Dragon Quest X pretty much… AC3 is NOTHING compared to that bomb :S
i think im going to die waiting for the e3… 1 month and 1 week more….
Fucking lier, ex2iting my ass yeah nothing says next gen like ps360 old ports. And done franchise srsly 1st mario 2d than 3d than 3d with 2d now 2d again smh his formula getting old.funny mario 2 looks like mario 3 nes yet fags r happy smh idiots
Shaking my head at your use of SMH.fucking diva.
Wii u is trash and how did ppl get specs on 3ds when shitendo refuses to tell out of embarrassment. 3ds is as strong as wii u which is a upgraded gamecube which was rival to ps2. Fanboys love nintendo trash , mario again smh wheres the innovated gameplay
Shut the fuck, you FUCKING TROLL!!!
It seems innovated gameplay is grabbing an old concept and repasting it with new levels and weapons like link to past clones. They cant even make games right smh 4 yrs 2 make games with glitched,bad control etc. What an embarrasment.
Mario=old zelda played out metriod low selling trash donkey kong rare had to show miyamoto how to make a good game kirby overrated nintendo is living in the 80s grow up and make new ips you”innovating” recyle dump company
TROLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! sickr block these Trolls!
God, I would really love a new super mario sunshine, it was my first real game on my gamecube an my favorite game of all time!
Ghost Recon… I want a 3rd person shooter!
I am so looking forward to Ghost Recon. Want a good 3rd person shooter
Here’s my predictions for the Launch line-up. (NOTE: This is just my opinion)
-Aliens: Colonial Marines (Sega, Gearbox Software)
-Assassin’s Creed III (Ubisoft)
-Batman: Arkham City – Ultimate Edition (Warner Bros., Rocksteady Studios)
-Darksiders II (THQ, Vigil Games)
-Killer Freaks from Outer Space (Ubisoft)
-Lego City Stories (Nintendo, Traveller’s Tales)
-Miyamoto’s New IP (Nintendo)
-The New Mario Game (Nintendo)
-Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge (Tecmo Koei, Team Ninja)
-Pikmin 3 (Nintendo)
-Tekken (Namco Bandai)
-Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Online (Ubisoft)
I agree. I can only hope that they make Zelda a launch title, that would be quite a seller.
