The lights are on
Nintendo's Wii U hits shelves on November 18, and has an impressive launch lineup in tow. Nintendo today announced that 23 different games will be available on day one, including Super Mario Bros. U, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, and Assassin's Creed III. Nintendo also lists Pikmin 3, Rayman Legends, and The Wonderful 101 as "launch window" releases.
"We're making sure that Wii U owners will have great games to play from the moment they open the box, and that a steady stream of fun new games is always on the way," said Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America's president and COO. "We have something for everyone, from new franchises to creative new approaches to familiar favorites."

I'll pick up three games on launch day. Super Mario U, ZombiU, and Darksiders. My wife has been waiting for Scribblenauts Unlimited so make that four games. I still wish Nintendo could have found a way to have a LoZ or full Metroid release ready for launch.
If i do get a WiiU i will be picking up ZombiU,AC3,and NSMBU
where's lego city? dang
I'll probably only be picking up ZombiU, too bad Rayman Legends or Pikmin 3 aren't on the list... Super stoked for them :D
Getting ZombiU and Mario
That is not bad for just Nov 18. Sure a lot of the other hot titles will drop by December and if not right in time for January rebound. Still very excited about this Nintendo launch.
