Nintendo America have just announced the titles that Americans will be able to pick up day one and as well as within the launch window.

There are 23 games launching on November 18th, all of which are retail games. All of the download eShop titles have a release date of November or Launch Window, which as we know could be anytime from November 2012 until March 2013.

Here are the 23 games American’s will be able to purchase on day one.

  • Call of Duty Black Ops 2
  • Skylanders Giants
  • Transformers Prime
  • Wipeout 3
  • Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two
  • EA Sports FIFA Soccer 13
  • Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition
  • New Super Mario Bros. U
  • Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge
  • Nintendo Land
  • Sing Party
  • Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed
  • Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper
  • Darksiders 2
  • Assassin’s Creed 3
  • ESPN Sports Connection
  • Just Dance 4
  • Rabbids Land
  • Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2013
  • ZombiU
  • Scribblenauts Unlimited
  • Game Party Champions
  • Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition

Most games were known to be coming on November 18th but Sing Party from Nintendo is a suprise addition. Titles like Mass Effect 3: Special Edition are a strange omission considering it’s a port from another console. Wipeout 3 is based on the TV show, not the racing game in case you were wondering.

That leaves the below for the launch window.

  • 007 Legends
  • Aliens Colonial Marines
  • Ben 10 Omniverse
  • Cabela’s Dangerous Hunts 2013
  • Chasing Aurora
  • Cloudberry Kingdom
  • Family Party 30 Great Games Obstacle Arcade
  • Funky Barn
  • Game & Wario
  • JEOPARDY LEGO City Undercover
  • Little Inferno
  • Madden NFL 13
  • Marvel Avengers Battle for Earth
  • Mass Effect 3
  • Mighty Switch Force HD
  • Nano Assault Neo
  • NBA 2K13
  • Pikmin 3
  • Rapala Pro Bass Fishing
  • Rayman Legends
  • Rise of the Guardians The Video Game
  • Runner2 Future Legend of Rhythm Alien
  • TANK TANK TANK
  • The Wonderful 101
  • Toki Tori 2
  • Trine 2 Director’s Cut
  • Wheel of Fortune
  • Wii Fit U

Naturally though you’ll want to know what’s coming here for day one in Australia. For that we have this updating list of titles in our Wii U Buyers Guide. It’s very pretty too.

    A very strong list of games! Mouth-watering… Oh damn my shirt is wet!

    No Rayman Legends? :(


  3. Twitch

    That list is pretty good for launch, it’s sad a lot of American sites are calling it lacklustre.
