Holy smokes! 51 launch titles?!! I’ve seen the game demos of Nintendo’s launch titles for the next-gen Wii U video game console, and I am anxiously awaiting how Nintendo (and its 3rd party developers) will be using the iPad-like controller in creating fun and addicting games that will be hitting the console in the coming year. Looking at Nintendo’s track record, you already know several things: guaranteed family fun games based on Nintendo’s characters, innovative use of the features of the new system, Nintendo satisfying the HUGE appetite of the loyal fan base eagerly awaiting the next iteration of Super Mario, Zelda, Metroid, Kirby, et al. Here’s one video game fan eagerly awaiting for Sunday November 18.

Nintendo of America’s President Reggie Fils-Aime sat down with NY Times just two days ago and talked about where Nintendo is heading with the new Wii U.

What we recognize is we own that most desired space in the home, and it’s the big screen TV in the living room. We own that because of the games that we offer that are targeted toward multiple players in the household sitting down and having fun together. By owning that big screen TV we can branch out to other services like Nintendo TV and continue to really solidify our footprint.

– Reggie Fils-Aime, President, Nintendo of America

Curious how the Wii U’s unique tablet controller works and how it will be innovatively used in games? Check out  Nintendo Land trailer to see it in action, as well as ZombiU trailer, and Rayman Legends further below:


Holy smokes, Mario, that was fast… This is gonna be a crazy Xmas shopping year for the Wii U… Get your pre-order in soon or you may not see a Wii U till January 2013. YOU SNOOZE YOU LOSE!

According to its website, GameStop has filled its available quota on the $350 Wii Deluxe Bundles and has stopped accepting pre-orders for it. It is still however, accepting sales on the Basic White Bundle going for $300.

OMG yes! There will be 51 games within the official launch window (between November 2012 and March 2013) for Nintendo’s brand new system arriving at your local stores starting on Sunday November 18. If you do NOT want to be disappointed, immediately go and pre-order NOW ($350 for 32gb, $300 for 8gb). I have a very bad feeling that supply will not meet demand until January 2013 (remember the Wii launch? There were many, many disappointed kiddies at Xmas). GO! NOW! RUN!

U, Nintendo Land, ZombiU, Assassin’s Creed III, Darksiders II, Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two, ESPN Sports Connection, Game Party Champions, Just Dance 4,  Rabbids Land, Scribblenauts Unlimited, Sing Party, Tank!
