Wii U launch supported by 23 day-one releases in North America


Nintendo has announced the full launch day lineup for the Wii U in North America, along with an updated list of games for the gaping "launch window" between November 18 and March of next year.

The games available at retail on launch day include New Super Mario Bros. U, Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge, Nintendo Land, and Sing Party from Nintendo; Black Ops 2, Skylanders Giants, Transformers Prime, and Wipeout 3 from Activision; Scribblenauts Unlimited, Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition, and Game Party Champions from WB; Epic Mickey 2; FIFA 13; Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed; Tekken Tag Tournament 2; Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper; Darksiders 2; and a raft of Ubigames: Assassin's Creed 3, ESPN Sports Connection, Just Dance 4, Rabbids Land, Your Shape, and ZombiU.

Check out the "launch window" lineup after the break. Curiously absent from the list is Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, which was originally announced as a March release.
