Nintendo confirms Wii U launch day lineup

Nintendo released a tentative launch window lineup after their Wii U media event on September 13. Today, the consolemaker has published the official launch lineup, which includes 23 titles available on launch day.

Assassin’s Creed III, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, New Super Mario Bros. U, Nintendo Land, Tekken Tag Tournament 2: Wii U Edition, ZombieU, and a whole slew of other games will be available on November 18. At least nine more titles (including Madden NFL 13) will make their way to stores (or the Wii U eShop) before the month is over.

An additional 20 games have been tagged as “launch window” titles, meaning they’ll be available sometime before March 31, 2013.

Three games which were listed on the tentative list are no longer considered launch window titles: Zumba Fitness Core, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, and (brace yourself) Bayonetta 2. Presumably, they’ll be available in mid-2013 or later.

Hit the jump for the Wii U’s official and complete launch lineup.
