Nintendo Confirms Day One North American Wii U Launch Titles.

The Wii U is set to be released this November 18th and Nintendo of America has recently confirmed that 23 titles will be available on day one of the console.  Hit the jump to see the full list of titles launching on day one.

  • Call of Duty: Black Ops 2
  • Skylanders Giants
  • Transformers Prime
  • Wipeout 3
  • Disney Epic Mickey 2
  • Fifa 13
  • Tekken Tag Tournament 2
  • New Super Mario Bros. U
  • Ninja Gaiden 3 Razor’s Edge
  • Nintendo Land
  • Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed
  • Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper
  • Darksiders 2
  • Assassin’s Creed 3
  • ESPN Sports Connection
  • Just Dance 4
  • Rabbids Land
  • Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2013
  • Zombi U
  • Scribblenaughts Unlimited
  • Game Party Champions
  • Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition

The rest of the games announced for the Wii U fall into the systems “launch window” period which begins on November 18th, 2012 and ends March 31, 2013.

Honestly though, the term launch window seems a bit disingenuous here.  That’s almost four month windows and I don’t think a game that comes out four months after the consoles release can really be considered a launch title.
