Nintendo Announces That the Wii U Will Launch With 23 Titles

Share

Nintendo announced the that when the Wii U hits the street on November 18th, it will come backing a 23 title launch library. As we’ve all heard from previous announcements not all of these titles will be a mix of new games and games already available on other systems. That said, it is still a rather large number of titles to roll out along with a new system and reputed to be the biggest launch library for Nintendo.

“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 Ron Bertram, Nintendo of Canada’s vice-president and general manager. “We have something for everyone, from new franchises to creative new approaches to familiar favourites.”

The high-definition Wii U system is available in two versions and each comes with a touch-screen Wii U GamePad controller. The Basic Set will be offered in white at a suggested retail price of $299.99 in Canada, while the Deluxe Set, which includes higher storage capacity, additional accessories and Nintendo Land, will be offered in black at a suggested retail price of $349.99 in Canada.

Wii U owners who connect their systems to the Internet also unlock a vast array of features to enhance their gaming, social and entertainment experiences. This includes features such as Nintendo eShop, which allows users to buy and download games directly to their systems, and Miiverse™, an online gaming community that lets players interact in new ways and share playing tips. Wii U owners in the United States and Canada will also have access to Nintendo TVii, which lets users access multiple sources of entertainment through a convenient GamePad interface.
