Twenty five games allegedly scheduled as launch titles for the Wii U have been captured in photos of a UK Blockbuster database. The list is, as usual, packed with Ubisoft titles, lending it some margin of
plausibility. Unannounced titles shape a good portion of the list, including Splinter Cell 6 and Just Dance 4.
Ready to let the Ubi wash over you? Check out the full list after the jump.
Splinter Cell 6
Jade Raymond, head of Ubisoft Toronto, announced at GDC that her team was “100% focused” on a new Splinter Cell game, but nothing has been officially announced yet. Call this one extremely likely.
Just Dance 4
Ubisoft registered the domain name for Just Dance 4 back in March, and in April, Amazon France listed the title as available for pre-order, all without an official confirmation of the title. Disregarding the obvious cash motivation Ubisoft has in releasing another Just Dance title, I think E3 just wouldn’t be the same without awkward dancing.
That’s all, just “Tekken.” It could be Street Fighter X Tekken, it could be a standalone Tekken, but it’s not going to be confirmed until Namco says so.
Rabbids: Party Land, Raving Rabbids
No surprises here. An Australian Classification website similar to the United States ESRB, suggested that one of an unannounced Rabbids game would be titled “Rabbids Rumble.” But, it may just be a Kinect exclusive as Ubisoft has been juggling the series’ motion control between Nintendo and Microsoft lately.
Your Shape 2013
The previous Your Shape title required the use of a special camera extension. The Wii U has a camera built in. So it’s convenient for people who like to exercise in an inconvenient setting.
Formula 1 All Stars
Formula 1 hasn’t been seen on the Wii since 2009. Perhaps the developer, Codemasters, has seen a worthwhile change in Nintendo.
Marvel Super Heroes
Probably as generic as they come. Marvel launched Marvel Super Hero Squad on the Wii, a title aimed at a younger audience, but there’s no indication of a specific conceit with this one.
The last four unannounced titles, Sports Connection, Monsters Party, Game Party, and Zombie, all carry what sound like temporary titles. So, Zombie. Get excited.
Killer Freaks from Outer Space
Metro: Last Light
New Super Mario Brothers Wii
Ninja Gaiden 3
Aliens: Colonial Marines
Assassin’s Creed III
Batman Arkham City
Ghost Recon Online
If this really is what the Wii U holds, the line up looks pretty much as-expected. But, that’s not really what has me surprised. What has me surprised – somewhere in the world, someone is employed at a Blockbuster. An open one, with plans for the future. I couldn’t be more stunned if they announced Zombie was not actually a working title.
