Top 5 Wii U Launch Window Titles | Total Revue

With the European launch date of 30th November fast approaching, hype for Nintendo’s new console is picking up pace. Speculation on final tech specs, the quality of the gamepad, software lineup and the consoles other services is widespread, whilst pre orders are said to be doing very well indeed.

The Wii U’s “launch window” software list is huge, spanning fifty, that’s right, fifty titles that will be hitting the shelves between launch day and the end of March 2013. The worry for most is that several of the games are ports of existing PS3 and Xbox 360 titles whilst some sound like weak shovelware or temporary kids distractions. But there are also some real corkers on the list that deserve your attention and are a great reason to pick up a shiny new Nintendo on day one should your wallet allow. (Nintendo, Wii U)

You think Zombi U will be the top selling launch title? Interesting.

I'm mostly looking forward to NSMBU and Nintendo Land, which to me seems more like a 'game collection' than a 'mini game collection'.

It'll most definitely be Nintendoland, it's going to be the Wii Sports of the Wii U.

NSMBU will probably be a second due to Japan not buying enough of ZombiU and Mario being, well, Mario.

I was going to bypass the WiiU because I didn't want to be tricked into buying another nintendo console with little 3rd party support and lack of exclusives. To my surprise, the WiiU is getting some hardcore games (albeit, most of them are ports) and some nice exclusives (Pikmin 3, ZombieU and Bayonetta gaining my interest....and of course Zelda and Mario).

Unfortunately I won't be able to afford it as of now but I have had a change of heart. I think Nintendo is on the right track back.

Trust me, once you get pass just dance and other shovelware on the Wii, you will be greeted to some of the best exclusives this gen:

Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Kirby's Epic Yarn
Super Mario Galaxy 1 & 2
Xenoblade Chronicles
The Last Story ( this and the one above are often put with Lost Odyssey on the 360 as the best console RPG's this generation)
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
Donkey Kong Country Returns
Mario Kart Wii
Metroid Prime Trilogy
Monster Hunter Tri
New Super Mario Bros. Wii

There's much more tho, those are just some off the top of my head

While I agree with your point completely, I just wanted to say that the Just Dance games aren't really shovelware. For parties, they are a blast, actually.

Now, Ninjabread Man, Party Babiez, Rapala Fishing, etc... THOSE are shovelware games. :P

ZombiU and NSMBU for me.

ZombiU and AC 3 are a given for me. Eventually I will get Wonderful 101. As for a forth game I have my eyes on either Tekken or Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper.
