Wii's launch lineup confirmed

Nintendo has revealed the official launch lineup for the Wii. Available November 19, the console will be released with a mixture of original titles and ports of existing content from other platforms. Bear in mind that Nintendo's definition of a "launch" game is one that will make it out within the first five weeks of the system's release, so don't expect all of these to be stacked to the ceiling at Wal-Mart on the first day. To make it a little easier to figure out what you want to buy, we've broken up the list into a number of helpful categories.

If you'd like to see how this list stacks up to the last launch list you might have seen - from August - justclick here.
