Wii U Launch Lineup: The Greatest in History?

Reggie Fils-Aime made a promise today: the Wii U's launch will be the greatest in Nintendo history. Rant Gaming takes a look at the launch titles of Nintendo's past to see what New Super Mario Bros U and ZombiU are competing against. (Culture, Gamecube, GameCube, Industry, New Super Mario Bros. U, Nintendo, Nintendo 64, Nintendo DS, Retro, Super Mario 64, Super Mario Bros., Super Mario World, Wii, Wii U)

i dont see anything great in it yet, i see one good game (ZombiU) and i could see myself playing the Metroid Blast in Nintendo Land but thats about it and thats all im getting at launch (the premium system, ZombiU and Nintendo Land ) then i will wait to see if another game catches my attention because as of today only ZombiU has done it, of course i will be getting zelda when it releases thats a no brainer for me.

Vita had a better launch lineup.

Everyone said the Vita's was oh so amazing, now look that them, saying it has no games. No, I am not bashing the Vita, I love mine, just saying.

I don't see anything great about the Wii U's launch, most of them are ports of games I can get without the system. Which is expected when a console comes out, I shall pick one up sometime next year, when SSB, Zelda, and B2 are shown in full and the first of those three come out... Which will most likely be B2.

I firmly agree and believe that the Nintendo Wii U entertainment system sports the greatest launch lineup in the history of the gaming spectrum. Never before have I witnessed so many AAA quality offerings touching down with the mother ship. Far too many great experiences to purchase all at once. A problem that I openly welcome.

This is one console that likely will not have a dry spell shortly after launch. Nintendo has played the cards very well as far as pretty much everything is concerned this time around. As a consumer I am honored and grateful for this achievement unlocked in the home console gaming space. Thanks to Nintendo taking a leap of faith in the name of Elite gaming and technology. The next generation is already shaping up to be one of the very best. Strengthening the Nintendo Brand name all around.

Nintendo shall always be remembered for taking gaming and innovation to the next level. Likely paving the way for future next generation consoles to come in the next couple of years.

Have a blessed day and happy gaming.

Rated E For Everyone

I love your posts man, so optimistic and a breath of fresh air on this site. I agree with you wholeheartedly. After the Nintendo Direct yesterday I went and pre-ordered my Wii U, I think it looks fun, which is something that has been lacking for me when it comes to gaming lately. I've been looking at gaming as more of a chore a lot of the time, the Wii U looks like a blast!

The launch lineup looks solid, best in history is debatable though. Its certainly one of the best in recent memory. The Xbox 360 had a pretty good launch lineup as well though.

I'm all for Wii U, but the lineup looks decent because of ports and exclusives, not because it's amazing. They aren't system sellers, but they're good.

yeah agreed, the launch is not horrid, but its not amazing, its launching with a bunch of multiplats lol, so not sure how anyone can think its amazing.

maybe for nintendo only owning customers who dont buy ps or xbox products

I own a PS3 and plan on buying one. Care to explain? Am I throwing a loop into your logic? Well here i'll send you for a real spin, believe it or not I just like to enjoy games regardless of the brand. I know in this day and age it may be hard to believe but it's true. If you don't believe me go ahead and shoot me a message on PS3, name on there is the same as on here - Sono421

It would look better to me if Ninja Gaiden 3 and Tekken were confirmed as launch titles in Europe but as it stands its ok. Could be better though. They will probably have multiple games ready for launch but are just spreading them out.

Best in history? On paper it looks great... but probably should wait for the actual games.
HmongAmerican  +   1248d ago
I will get the WiiU if 1. Nintendo do a remake of Majora's Mask. 2. Wait for when Zelda WiiU or Super Smash bro WiiU come out.
