What are the confirmed Wii U day one titles?

Written by David Stellmack

Only seven of them by our count will be ready

Over the weekend we spent some time trying to actually figure out what titles you will be able to buy on day one if you take the plunge and buy a Wii U. Despite a lot of confusion due to announcements and such, it has been harder than you might think to figure out which titles are going to be available for purchase on day one when the console releases in North America and Europe.

From what we have been able to figure out from what Nintendo has announced and what third party developers are telling us, it would appear that only seven titles will arrive on launch, and the number is actually only six if you count the Nintendo Land Mine Game collection that will be coming with the Premium model as one of the releases.

We expect to see FIFA 13, Rayman Legends, Mass Effect 3, Super Mario Bros U, ZombiU, Trine 2: Director’s Cut, Toki Tori 2, and Nano Assault Neo as the day one titles in North America and Europe.

The one mystery might actually be Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, as it has been called a “Launch Day Title”, but neither Activision nor Nintendo have provided a release date. We do know that the game is set to arrive ahead of the Wii U launch on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC; so we think that it is possible we will see this as well as a day one title release or very close to launch day.

Nintendo claims that another couple of dozen titles will be arriving before the end of the March Launch window for the Wii U. These will include: 007 Legends, Aliens: Colonial Marines, Assassin's Creed 3, Batman: Arkham City Armoured Edition, Ben 10 Omniverse, Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2012, Darksiders 2, Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two, Family Party: 30 Great Games Obstacle Arcade, Funky Barn Game & Mario, Game Party Champions, Just Dance 4, Lego City: Undercover, Madden NFL 13, Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, NBA 2K13, Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge, Rabbids Land, Rise of the Guardians: The Video Game, Runner 2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien, Scribblenauts Unlimited, SiNG Party, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, Sports Connection, Tank! Tank! Tank!, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition, Transformers Prime, Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper, Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2013. Of the majority of these titles the actual release date isn’t clear, but sources tell us to look for 3rd Party Publishers to start firming that up in the next week or so.
