Nintendo Confirms 23 Wii U Games For Launch Day

Nintendo revealed a preliminary list of Wii U software when they announced the console’s launch details (and an unconfirmed launch list a few days later) but The Big N has now made it official by releasing the full list of games that will be available between November 18th and March 31, 2013.

When the Wii U launches in North America on November 18th it will have the following 23 titles available for purchase:

Over the console’s launch window – which ends on March 31, 2013 – the following 29 games will release for the Wii U:

While it is disappointing to see titles like Pikmin 3 and Rayman Legends not make the Wii U‘s launch day list, this appears to be a pretty strong lineup overall. I would say there are a good four or five “day one” titles that I’m interested in.

Let us know in the comments which Wii U games you are looking forward to picking up with your shiny new console. That is, assuming you managed to find a place to pre-order the shiny new console from.
