Getting a Wii U on November 18? Here are the 23 games you can choose from

We’re less than two months away from the release of Nintendo’s tablet-based Wii U console. We’ve covered much of what you can expect from the system here.

If you’re planning to preorder it, or you already have, you’ve probably done some guesswork to figure out which games to pick up with your shiny new game player. Guess no more, my friends, Nintendo has just put out an official list of release-day titles that runs 23 games deep.

Check it (in alphabetical order by publisher):

Activision

  • Call of Duty: Black Ops II
  • Skylanders Giants
  • Transformers Prime
  • Wipeout 3

Disney Interactive

  • Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two

Electronic Arts

  • FIFA Soccer 13

Namco Bandai

  • Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition

Nintendo

  • New Super Mario Bros. U
  • Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge
  • Nintendo Land
  • Sing Party

Sega

Tecmo Koei

  • Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper

THQ

  • Darksiders II

Ubisoft

  • Assassin’s Creed III
  • ESPN Sports Connection

  • ZombiU

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment

Some notable games aren’t on the list. Pikmin 3, Rayman Legends, and The Wonderful 101 are part of the nebulous “launch window,” which Nintendo defines as continuing through March 31.

Bayonetta 2, the sequel to the cult-favorite beat-em-up, isn’t anywhere in this press release. So don’t expect it any time before March.
