  • matt

    Hardcore line-up equals Hardcore gamers day 1 cant wait.

  • crackkat

    no reason not to buy this console 🙂 no reason not to sell my xbox360 🙂

    • O REILLY

      HALO 4 you dimwit

      • LUL

        LUL one game isnt enough to keeep a console everyother system has at least more then 10 exclusives except xbox…limited titles

      • Chris

        Okay let see all the exclusive titles each company, shall we:

        Nintendo – Mario, Link, Pokemon, F-Zero, Ice Climber, Kid Icarus, Metroid, Kirby, WarioWare, The list can go on and on…

        Sony – Jak and Daxtar, LittleBigPlanet, Resistance, Rachet and Clank, Sly Cooper, Metal Gear Solid (Not to be confused with Metal Gear on the NES ans Metal Gear Rising on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC)

        Microsoft – Halo… Halo and.. uuuh.. Halo… oh yeah Forza and… Halo..

        Face it, Microsoft only has 2 main franchise that everyone knows about and Forza isn’t even around anymore because it was gaining enough money.

        Nintendo – 5, Sony – 4, Microsoft-2

        • Seris

          Considering a Metal Gear Solid game was recently released on the 3DS (It was a remake but still) I wouldn’t include that as a Sony exclusive.

          • Daniel

            Metal Gear Solid was also a gamecube release if I’m not mistaken.

        • urmmm

          theres Gears of war also idoit

        • The Baconater

          Don’t forget metroid, conduit, madworld, and still many more from nintendo.

        • Dale

          Halo, Forza, Fable, Viva Pinata, Splintercell (not to be confused with you being a gimp), Gears of War, Dead rising, Banjo & Kazooie (stolen like a boss), Naruto and Perfect Dark (oh the irony).

          That’s just off the top of my head, don’t get me wrong, I love Nintendo and i’ll be getting a Wii U regardless at some point. But little fan boys like you, really get on my tits. It sounds like you’re a Sony/Nintendo fanboy, only a PC fuck could rival you in the realm of twat.

        • Junior

          What about God of war, uncharted, gran turismo…sony wins!

        • Lixdy

          Another Nintendo, Donkey Kong 

    • Your mom

      Heheh yes sell yo Xbox cause it is a pile of teletubies!

  • crackkat

    there are plenty more games confirmed now, no websites are updating their lists though

  • 😀

  • alienfish

    Ummmm… Pikmin 3?

    • JoshKelly

      Pikmin 3 was conformed luckily but this page was probably made before it was or they didn’t hear about it.

  • rik

    nintendo to journey into the next generation and in HD is reason enough for me.

  • Ty

    Metroid Prime? That was only a trilogy. That needs to be changed to just “Metroid”.

  • terry smith

    i cant wait for the release for the wii u

  • Andy Vasquez

    Will the Wii U be able to access the Virtual Console and all the available games?

    • GB Oracle

      Yes, there will be virtual console on the Wii U. I’m not sure about all available games, but it is most likely.

  • Teddy

    You forgot to mention a new super smash bros.
    http://youtu.be/qimzqpGL36Y?t=17s

  • Derik Gotro

    Not a bad line up. Cant wait for this console.

  • Nope.

    Don’t forget No More Heroes 3

  • Max

    I think it will be epic
    So gonna get one

  • link

    its coming out nov. 18 zelda yeah

    • Kray

      Link isn’t soppose to talk :)LOL

      • ak47rocks1333

        true true CHECK OUT MY cHANNEL I JUST STARTED LeTS PLAYIN JOIN THE FUN Oh CARAMILK

        • ak47rocks1333

          ITS AK47ROCKS1337

    • WiiUPlayWithMe:P

      Zelda….in 2 years, yeah! The last game was last year. They said they’d hurry to try to make it in 3 years, so you still have a wait ahead of you, just like the rest of us. Don’t get your hopes up just yet. This list is a bit inaccurate and incomplete. Focus on the e3 games and don’t hold your breathe for other games, cause it’ll be a while before we really take off. Doesn’t stop this from being a day 1 of pre-ordering purchase, but still.

  • Bill

    I’m kind of surprised that we’re getting AC3 and BF3 on the Wii U. As for the Metroid Prime announcement, I don’t think that’s official, but I does seem likely. Retro Studios already stated that Corruption would be the last Prime they developed. Did Nintendo find a new developer, or is Retro returning to the fray?

  • fredfredbr

    isnt Mesolithic of honor war fighter going to o the wii u too

  • Would like to see more RPGs and maybe some SRPGs “as good as” Final Fantasy Tactics and Tactics Ogre PSP.

    Also, I think an Animal Crossing soon after launch would be a great way to roll momentum forward for the console. Lots of innovations to be had there!

    Exciting times, there’s definitely a nice buzz around this one so far.

  • nintendo’s wii U has grownup!!! it’ll be awesome and it knocks out the PS4 and xbox4!!!!

    • simon

      no

  • meleemaster64

    OH YEAH!!!!! final another super smash brothers game. brawl is getting boring and melee still has me holding up on a new one………oh come on 2013 you got to shitting me.

  • Nick Nosbisch

    Whatabout mw3 or black ops 2 for the wii

    • true very true those are my favorite x box 360 games kinda wish i had one it works better than the wii

      • Commander Firefox

        I could Black Ops 2 coming to the wii u, but i dont think that mw3 or battelfield 3 will get ported to annother nintendo console

    • T13char

      Really? Mw3 and black ops? Those games stink in comparison to battlefield. Except for splitscreen

  • Mega64

    Finaly a assasins creed game for nintendo (not counting assasins creed for ds lite

  • WiiUPlayWithMe:P

    Unless Nintendo has been working 25/8 on making it, there is no chance for a Zelda to be released as a launch title. That would be fantastic if it was, but they just had skyward sword a year before the Wii u launch. Also, smash bros is still in the planning process. Don’t expect that before 2014. And remember, its gonna be a 2 console game, so late 2014, my earliest guess. I don’t think the metroid will be a metroid prime, but still, metroid is pretty sick. But all in all, look for what has already been confirmed as launch titles or not mentioned at all to get your launch list. All of these games will come out, but we’re gonna have to wait for a few of them

  • Mattt

    Crysis 3 on Wii U? That would be very interesting… As for the other hardcore multiplayer games like COD and MOH, Nintendo needs to have a better online system, because in comparison to Xbox Live and PSN, it’s really terrible. (although PSN isn’t too great either…) If Nintendo can do these things right, I think that they will face newcomers ready to jump on this bandwagon and extreme COD fanboys yelling their heads off.

    • Commander Firefox

      when arent cod fans yelling there heads offf

  • ak47akaanton

    how bout sims will there be sims plz say yes

    • ANWSERTOAK47

      Yes i heard that they are gonna create sims 4 for wii u

      • ak47rocks1333

        trur

      • Nintendude

        Yet, no Spore 2. *sniffles*

  • Commander Firefox

    I loved the wii as it had brilliant exclusives, but i was disappointed with the poor third party support and the bad rep. This system looks to bring back core gamers, and there is no way that it can have a bad rep if its got all the third party support of microsoft and sony, as well as incredible nintendo exclusives

  • EponaVsCrimsonLoftwing

    This is looking pretty good. The Wii U is gonna have a nice bit of power and look real pretty at the same time. We’re getting some nice third party support here, in addition to our Nintendo favorites. God bless Nintendo. On another note, the Wii U will probably be slightly outpowered/graphiced by the ps4/720, simply because they will be a year or more younger than it, and have slightly more modern tech, but not enough to really matter. Let’s not argue about this, it’d be stupid of Sony or Microsoft to do otherwise and fiscally irresponsible, so they have no choice. But still. games hitting 1080p are all gonna be in the same range of good looking. Graphics have hit a point where they all look really good. Great is great, more great or less great, the Wii U will still be great. We can look into going beyond that when we all have tv’s that can support >9000p graphics

    • EponaVsCrimsonLoftwing

      Ps. Darksiders 2, Assassins Creed 3, Killer Freaks from Outer Space, plus anything that has yet to be announced for the launch. Nintendo, you’re gonna run me broke this year! I need to start saving up!

  • WiiUPlayWithMe:P

    Okay, now this is just an idea, but Nintendo needs to do this. Make a first person, pokemon RPG. Or even an MMORPG. Now here me out on this. You play as your pokemon world avatars, in a 3D, pseudo-realistic world, and use nother the analog sticks and gyroscope functions of the controller to control where you’re looking. Now, you have you pokemon in your party at the bottom of your screen, and other easy access things that you could also get through the menu, like your bike or pokedex. Now, when you’re walking through, say a forest, you’re alerted to nearby pokemon by sounds coming from your controller, you react and can turn to see a moving bush or tree, or just a pokemon nearby, or just keep going, unless it comes from the front and attacks you. Now, you battle til the pokemon faint, and use your pokeball, aiming with the gyroscope and ‘shooting’ it at the pokemon. When the pokemon are fainted they look like they do in the tv show, with the swirlly eyes and limp on the ground (think the weedle that ash didn’t catch in the third episode) you click on the ball in your hand to make it big, then aim and throw. Battle scenes you control the pokemon you have out in real time and battle using the touch screen to use your atks. Add in the ability to counter atks with other atks, to cancle out each other, or combine turn based atking into the game, you’ve got one Hell of a pokemon game at your hands. I haven’t been able to play it yet, but maybe something like pokemon meets xenoblade battle mechanics, or from what I’ve seen, could be real time similar to darksiders 2, with the dodging atks and stuff. Could be interesting and make for a hardcore pokemon game

    • Death

      I agree…. except with the part about the real time action.. That’s a little intense don’t you think?

      • WiiUPlayWithMe:P

        Well, I did say a hardcore pokemon game. Besides, that would be such a change up, I bet it’d get enough attention to more than sell its share. Like, designate attacks to the trigger buttons, other dodging and blocking functions in the abxy buttons. Maybe one is a dash move and a jump. The screen could show the battle layout, where your pokemon are and where the opponent is, and maybe some obstacles that you could use as cover or something. Have a button on the touch screen switch between pokemon in multi battles. And one for a combo atk. Or double trigger for a combo. I like this control scheme even better than the last one actually. 🙂

    • SomePerson

      I stopped playing pokemon but if that game ever happens I would definitively come back to it

  • seth

    oh please tell me wii u will get bayonetta 2!!!????

  • musharraf

    Hi i just want to say that can u play old wii games on wii u console? i hope yes that u can play old games on it as wel like new super mario bros & donkey kong country returns on wii u can play?? let me know and comment me back. REPLAY ME>>>

    • nintendofan

      yes you will be able to play wii games on the new console.

  • simon

    Well, nitendo sure do not endlessly the same games every year! the creativity is amazing!!! A new mario, who could have predicted that?! Nostalgia is the best!!

  • alex

    4 words grand theft auto five

  • WiiUPlayWithMe:P

    So this clearly isn’t being updated continuously. I’m just wondering if it will be anytime soon? E3 just ended so an updated list would be nice please 😀

  • (>”)>Kirby

    Update it, because there is no Zelda for wii u that was only a tech demo and that was twilight princess but with navi. *sob* where is Zelda?

  • Meliza Luna

    Can we play gamecube games on this?

    • EponaVsCrimsonLoftwing

      Sadly no :(. But some of the games will be available through the virtual console 😀

  • (>”)>Kirby

    I wanna get The Wind Waker

  • Roger

    Don’t forget the best exclusive of them all for sony uncharted.

  • Colton

    Hmm.. I really wonder if Smash Bros. could be a release. Also, get new pokemon in Smash!

    • EponaVsCrimsonLoftwing

      They’ll be on a new generation by that point. If we had at least one character from each, that’d be pretty awesome. I’m sure the next gen is already half thought through, in terms of new pokemon and moves that they’re gonna make for it. I wonder if that’ll come out first, or the ruby sapphire remake

  • Tim

    Wii U For the Win!

  • Colton

    Also, if they came out with new pokemon on SSB4 they should make a way for them to evolve.

    • David

      IT WOULD BE AMAIZING! Or a pokemon smash bros. game *.*

  • name

    Wii beat u sony and microsoft
    u copy from the wii and wii u
    u are wii sony and microsoft

  • King of Red Lions

    I’ve really been looking forward to Ghost Recon Online, but not much has been said about it and Wii U. Guess we have to wait until they are done with PC.

  • ceara

    okay this is awesome they will keep coming out with games in the future this isnt the only list of games they will ever have for this system 🙂 im gonna sell my current wii and other electronics to buy this system 😉

    • EponaVsCrimsonLoftwing

      But if you sell your current Wii, what will you play old Gamecube games on?

  • David

    AND DONKEY KONG!!

  • Lixdy

    I wonder what a 2 and 1/2 D super Mario game would be like

  • Really?

    Will we be able to play games without the tv like. If I were to play aliens colonial marines would I be able to fully play it on the wii u without the tv?

    • EponaVsCrimsonLoftwing

      You mean on the Wii U gamepad. The console is the Wii U itself 😛 But yes, for some games, you will be able to play gamepad only, but some require both

  • NO.

    hell no. just HELLLLLLLL NO. DON’T EVEN MENTION FABLE.

  • Colton
