Nintendo Wii U Launch Update – Launch Date Games Revealed!

At the Nintendo press conference two weeks ago, tons of new details were given about the Wii U including the bundles the system would be packaged in and the games being put into the launch window. Yesterday, even more details were given to the launch lineup with 23 titles being confirmed for day one. This looks to be one of the largest launch lineups of any system in recent memory with lots of big name games in it.

Aside from bundling the Deluxe system with Nintendo Land to show off the Wii U’s unique capabilities, Nintendo made sure to back the system with the support of major well known franchises for both the casual and hardcore gamer.

For the Nintendo gamer, the system will launch with New Super Mario Bros. U which is the first time since the Nintendo 64 where a Mario game was made available day one for a home console.

For the hardcore audience, Call of Duty: Black Ops II comes to the Wii U on launch, only five days after its release on XBox 360, PS3 and PC. No doubt, it will be a different version of the game in some respects due to the Wii U’s controller and internet connectivity but it will likely be one of the most known titles coming out on launch day. Additionally, hardcore and more mature gamers will appreciate Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition and Assassin’s Creed III as well as Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge.

For younger gamers, Skylanders Giants will lead the charge with a host of new Skylanders for parents to purchase. In addition, Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of 2 and Transformers Prime will be there too.

Take a look at the full lineup below and make sure to give your thoughts on the lineup and let us know which games you want us to review first too!
