Wii U games line-up confirmed for UK launch, includes 24 titles

Nintendo has confirmed the launch line-up of Wii U games for the console’s UK launch on 30 November. Here’s the list in full:

  • Assassin's Creed 3
  • Batman: Arkham City Armoured Edition
  • Ben 10: Omniverse
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops 2
  • Darksiders 2
  • Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power Of Two
  • Family Party: 30 Great Games Obstacle Arcade
  • Funky Barn
  • FIFA 13
  • Game Party Champions
  • Just Dance 4
  • Mass Effect 3: Special Edition
  • New Super Mario Bros. U
  • Nintendo Land
  • Rabbids Land
  • Skylanders Giants
  • Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed
  • Sports Connection
  • Tank! Tank! Tank!
  • Tekken Tag Tournament 2
  • Transformers Prime
  • Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2013
  • Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper
  • ZombiU

It’s very similar to the US launch line-up, although notable absences are Scribblenauts Unlimited and Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge. Both titles are scheduled to launch in the UK during the Wii U ‘launch window’ (between 20 November and March next year). The UK line-up includes three games that didn’t feature on the US list - Ben 10: Omniverse, Family Party: 30 Great Games Obstacle Arcade, and Funky Barn.

Nintendo had previously confirmed a much smaller UK launch line-up of just nine titles. Oddly, three of the games in the original selection – Nano Assault Neo, Trine 2: Director's Cut, Toki Tori 2 - don’t appear on this updated list.

    If I didn't already own a PS3 and a 360, that would be one of the best launch lineups for a long while. However as it is, most of the games I'd be interested in I already own, there is a lot of stuff that just doesn't interest me which basically leaves ZombiU, which given the shaky reviews I wouldn't buy a whole new console just to experience a risky and flawed game. I know I'll probably end up with one once more exclusives start to show up and the price of the hardware takes a big reduction.

    Not bad. There's something for everyone I guess. I probably won't be able to pick up a WiiU well into the next year, but if that wasn't the case then I'd actually be pretty disappointed that Scribblenauts isn't there. Apart from that game only Pikmin 3 is enough enticement for me to buy the console, so I guess I have even more reason to wait now.
