Launch titles for Wii U are a mix

by on06 June 2012

No confirmation on how much they will cost

Nintendo has released the entire slate of games that are expected for the launch of the Wii U. While there are a few nice surprises, the bigger problem might be that not one single Activision title is on the list, and Electronic Arts only has one title for the unit to be released this holiday season.

When we asked developers why the pickings were a bit slim and featured mostly ports from other systems, we heard the same thing from most of them: they wanted to see how well the console performs before sinking lots of money into development of Wii U titles. Let’s face the fact that the majority of third party developers didn’t get rich from releasing Wii titles.
