I Have to Say Something Not Mean About the WiiU Again

When Nintendo revealed the WiiU deets a few weeks ago, one of my criticisms was that they only announced two games for the launch (Nintendoland and New Super Mario Bros. U). Oh sure, they said they’d have 50+ games during the WiiU’s “launch window” which hilariously lasts through March, but that’s bullshit and we all know it. At any rate, my frothing Nintendo fanboy readers can put their poison pens away, because Nintendo just announced they’ll have 23 games ready at the WiiU’s real launch on November 18th. These include:

? Call of Duty: Black Ops II
? Skylanders Giants
? Transformers Prime
? Wipeout 3
? Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two
? EA Sports FIFA Soccer 13
? Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition
? New Super Mario Bros. U
? Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge
? NintendoLand
? SiNG Party
? Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed
? Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper
? Darksiders II
? Assassin’s Creed III
? ESPN Sports Connection
? Just Dance 4
? Rabbids Land
? Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2013
? ZombiU
? Scribblenauts Unlimited
? Game Party Champions
? Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition

And there’ll be 29 games released during the “launch window,” including The Wonderful 101 (the full list of these titles is after the jump). I don’t personally think there’s a killer game in there except maybe New Super Mario Bros. U, but I’ve had a shitty enough time recently without pissing off the Sons of Shigeru, so I’m just going to back away slowly now. (Via Destructoid)
