E312: Nintendo releases complete list of Wii U launch titles

Dali Dimovski of writes: "Nintendo has just published a list of the Wii U’s launch window titles. As you can see, 'Holiday' is listed everywhere, which essentially confirms a late November release date for the console and its games. Oddly enough, Pikmin 3 is listed as 'Launch Window', which doesn’t bode well for those of us hoping to play it this holiday season. Kid Icarus Uprising was a 3DS 'Launch window' game as well, and look what happened there. Also, Rayman Legends‘ date is listed as TBA, which would make us very very sad if it didn’t arrive this year."

Wish they would have released a pokemon game as a launch title.

if they do put a pokemon game on the wiiU, you can be sure it'll be like skylanders, their hardware supports it natively. I'm not sure that's what you want

Nahh it most likely won't it will probably be more like Pokemon: Colosseum and XD Gale of Darkness but more open world.

It's confirmed that all Virtual Console games on your Wii can transfer to WiiU..
Getting a little hotter WiiU, keep the news

Pretty weak IMO. I don't really consider a 2D Mario game a true Mario game for supposed next gen hardware. I don't care one bit about Pikmin. Many of the other hardcore games will have already been out on the other consoles for a good while. ZombieU might be the only game on the list that interests me.

WTF? 2D is mario's roots. how can you not consider that true mario? Call me oldschool, but I've enjoyed 2D mario more than the 3D ones. 2D mario is more challenging and good for speed runs.

Comments like those are why I'll never understand gamers these days.

Personally i dont think thats an impressive line up of games. there a few there that i'm really interested in but was hoping for more third party games like GTA5, Resi 6, Hitman Absolution amongst others if they do get announced then that's brilliant. as for first party games zelda, mario (new 3D), starfox, metroid i'm hoping at least one of those is in the launch window.
