The Wii U is still shrouded in mystery, but the first launch title has been announced and it’s not what you’d expect.
Instead of an announcement from Nintendo concerning the latest adventure starring Mario or Link or even Samus Aran, the announcement of the first Wii U launch title has come from Tecmo Koei. During a financial presentation, the publisher revealed that Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge will be available at the Wii U’s launch (whenever that is). Nintendo plans to “re-introduce” the Wii U to the public at E3 2012, so a Fall release is likely.
Ninja Gaiden 3 is also in development for the PS3 and Xbox 360, and will be released on those two platforms in early 2012.
