Wii U's First Launch Title Announced Already

Bit early, though

We don't even know when the Wii U will launch other than a vague "between April and December 2012" guideline, but we already know one of the games you'll be able to pick up with the console on day one: Tecmo Koei's Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge.

The publisher's financial reports (via Andriasang) peg the game for release alongside Nintendo's next home console. First announced at E3 2011, Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge is an accompaniment to Ninja Gaiden III on PlayStation 3, though as yet we're not entirely sure how the two titles will differ, particularly as the PS3 version will support motion controls in the form of PlayStation Move.

Here's the E3 2011 video showing off Wii U's most powerful third party games:
