Nintendo launches the first new game console in six years with the Wii U on November 18, just before Black Friday and the Christmas shopping season. The new console is guaranteed to be in short supply this year with analyst Michael Pachter of Wedbush Securities expecting about 1.5 million hardware units for the U.S.
But at the end of the day, it’s not the $300 or $350 (for the Deluxe set) price point that will dictate Nintendo’s success. It’s the games. Nintendo has 29 games available for its launch, which officially kicks off at the Nintendo World store in New York’s Rockefeller Center with Nintendo President and COO Reggie Fils-Aimes. Below are 10 reasons, or games, to pick up a Wii U, and a video to show you each title in action.
