Remember when the Wii launched in 2006 with just a gamecube port of Zelda, a horribly broken Red Steel, and a handful of party games? That's not gonna happen with the Wii U. Along with the recent announcement of Bayonetta 2 being a Wii U exclusive title, Nintendo has just announced that there will be a staggering 23 games available on launch day. While many of the titles are ports of other games, there are still a huge selection of titles that I, a gamer who doesn't have access to a Ps3 or 360, would really enjoy being able to play finally.
Below is the current list of 23 titles, with the promise of 9 more games being released before December, and 20 more between December and April 2013.Call of Duty®: Black Ops II
Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two
EA SPORTS FIFA Soccer 13
TEKKEN TAG TOURNAMENT 2 Wii U Edition

In addition to these titles, the Wii U will also be able to transfer all your WiiWare and Virtual Console games from your Wii for free. And it can play all your previous Wii titles, with the eShop being available on day 1 as well.
I gotta say. That's pretty damn impressive Nintendo. You really do seem to be trying very hard to push the hardcore gaming angle as well as the family friendly angle. Off the top of my head I would like to play Assassin's Creed 3, Batman, Nintendo Land, NSMBWii2, and Epic Mickey 2. For a launch window for a brand new system, I think this is really amazing. I don't think I've ever seen a console release with this much content right off the bat.
