Some snaps of BlockBuster’s internal system have revealed a bunch of titles which should be coming out on the Wii U, providing the information is correct, of course.
So what are they? Well… deep breath… they are listed by the Sixth Axis as: Aliens Colonial Marines, Assassin’s Creed, Batman: Arkham City, Darksiders II, Dirt 3, Formula One: All Stars, Game Party, Ghost Recon Online.
Then there’s also: Just Dance 4, Killer Freaks From Outer Space, Marvel Super Heroes, Metro Last Light, Monsters Party, New Super Marios Mii, Ninja Gaiden 3, Pikmin, Rabbids Party Land, Raving Rabbids, Rayman Legends, Shield Pose, Splinter Cell 6, Sports Connection, Tekken, Your Shape 2013 and Zombie.
There are no surprises with some of those titles, Just Dance 4 for example is inevitable (we expect this franchise will have a life similar to the Now That’s What I Call Music… compilations).
Reaction has been a little muted to the line-up, although there are some undeniably quality titles on there – Batman, Darksiders and Assassin’s Creed, for starters.
We’re still fairly excited about seeing the Wii U, with its tablet controller, in action. The console will be out this autumn, certainly before Christmas, with the exact release date to be revealed when Nintendo shows the machine off at E3.
Given that the 3DS certainly didn’t go down as well as the company hoped, if the Wii U also disappoints, that will be a big problem for Nintendo.
