50 titles for US Wii U launch window

10:16 AM on 09.13.2012 // Tony Ponce

[Update: Sizzle reel video added to show off a bunch of the launch games]

Nintendo's Wii U launch window extends from the console's release on November 18 release through the end of March 2013. In that time, over 50 games are planned to hit store shelves. That includes everything we've heard about since E3, including new announcements like The Wonderful 101, Black Ops 2, and Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate.

As for launch DAY releases, well, that will get ironed out in the next few weeks. Obviously, Nintendo Land and New Super Mario Bros. U will be there from the beginning, but other fare is up in the air.

For the full list of software, hit the jump.

So many people angry at Play-Asia right now. Totally not exactly the kind of backlash Tecmo were trying to avoid by not releasing the game here in the first place.

If you're a UK kid there's a Wii U 32 GB Wind Waker Premium Pack on Amazon for £240. It says sale... I dunno how much of a saving that is. You tell me.

Community Question: Not strictly speaking video game-related, but screw it. Team Captain America or Team Iron Man?

I want Just Cause 2 and Metal Gear Solid V + Peace Walker to fornicate together so we can have a beautiful big open world to blow up and/or fulton. Then I want to build an infinitely-sized base of soldiers, each with their own personalities and stats.

When SFV drops next year we gotta get some DTOID noob battles on, practice with online lag with friends, be really bad casuals together. We can call it Kanye Night Fights. #Swerve on FNF (just kidding...maybe).

So someone messaged me on a Lightning fast, comment board that bow they're super depressed. And I worry for them now. Because a comment board is not something to get depressed over, just because someone disagrees with you if your an ass, people will be 2.

Guys, a sequel to Retro City Rampage: Shakedown Hawaii! Someone should really write about it. Lots of Dtoid staff were in the RCR after all.

Fuck racism man, shit ain't fair. Can't stand it and I shouldn't have to. Nobody should.

Embedded pictures in Quickposts seem to be broken for me right now.

To my surprise, I've more or less figured out Rodea Wii U controls. Still a different game from the Wii version, but not as decidedly inferior in my eyes. Did the legacy medals do anything in Wii version?

"Am I a kid, or a squid?" I ponder as I stare off into the horizon. A wise man once told me "Son, you can be whatever you want to be. You are only limited by your lack of ambition " And I want to be a squid. A squid now.

Duck Hunt was a trickier unlock than I expected. Jigglypuff, you are next on my list! [img][/img]

Yay, this arrived today. Nekro is quite happy, as he's been looking forward to playing this game for a while. [IMG][/IMG]

Dtoid mobile has apparently broken again. This is it. This how the dtoid ends. *black hole opens, dtoid disappears*

Gave Ronin one more chance before I chucked it in the "never to be finished" pile, glad I did. It could have been so much better but as a frustrating time waster it's not bad.

I'm sitting on the Fapcast's most recent recording. I just feel like I need a day for myself after, you know, freaking out about rent.

Why is every Quickpost now spaced out like poems with random amounts of stanzas that never ever rhyme?
