In the latest issue of Game Informer, we take a look at the next round of games coming to the Wii U in 2013. For more background information on those games, check out this round-up of previews.

Pikmin 3 Retains Series' Charm In Playable E3 Outing
"Fans of the first two Pikmin games should definitely look forward to this long-awaited sequel, even if it all feels a bit familiar.... Even though the E3 demo was fairly limited, I walked away confident that Pikmin 3 will be one of the early Wii U standouts."

Rayman Legends Preview
"In this level, Rayman blasted forward as fast as he could go, while I tapped barriers and enemies in rhythm with the music. I was effectively playing a version of Elite Beat Agents while Rayman was platforming as fast as he can. It was one of the most enjoyable experiences I've had at E3."

Hands And Feet On With Wii Fit U
"Wii Fit U doesn’t feel too far removed from the standard set by Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus. I wasn’t able to delve into the weight stat tracking of the game for obvious reasons, but I was able to play a few of the minigames on hand."

Exploring The World Of Lego City Undercover
"One of the most promising games for the early life of the Wii U is the exclusive Lego game from TT Games. Set in the open world of Lego City, players assume the role of Chase McCain as a cop that is hell-bent on tackling and dismantling Lego criminals."

Everything We Know About Game & Wario
"Nintendo showed off this quirky, Warioware-flavored minigame collection at E3 2012, but we weren't able to try out everything during the show. We got more time with the minigames we missed during our recent visit to Nintendo's Redmond, Washington office for our recent cover story."

Hands On With The Wii U's Quirky Brawler, The Wonderful 101
"Platinum Games is best known for the M-rated action of games like Bayonetta and Mad World, but its newest title is a family-friendly beat 'em up that aptly demonstrates some of the Wii U GamePad's unique features."
