23 titles at launch
Nintendo announced Wednesday that it will debut with 23 games in its launch lineup for the Wii U.
The next-generation console from the embattled company will be out in time for the holidays. The games announced Wednesday are heavy on ports from other consoles and titles from Nintendo itself. They include darker, more complex titles such as “Call of Duty: Black Ops II,” “Arkham City Armored Edition” and “Assassin’s Creed III,” but also games such as “Just Dance 4,” “Epic Mickey 2” and, of course, “New Super Mario Bros. U.”
The company also named several titles that will arrive by the end of March, including “Wii Fit U,” “NBA 2K13” and “Mass Effect 3.” The console will cost $299 and will be in stores on Nov. 18.
