GameStop said today it's seen 1.2 million reserves placed on Wii U launch titles worldwide. That's more than double the level of the original Wii launch titles in 2006. The retailer also listed off its top reserving titles, which include ZombiU, Assassin's Creed 3, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Scribblenauts Unlimited, and New Super Mario Bros. U.

"While we remain very excited about Wii U's potential we also caution that we have limited knowledge of supply and we may not be able to satisfy the strong demand during our fourth quarter," GameStop president Tony Bartel said during the company's earnings call this morning.

GameStop said it has nearly 500,000 customers on the Wii U reservation waitlist worldwide.
