Feast Your Eyes on Nintendo's Wii U Launch Hits

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Looking good

The dust is starting to settle on Wii U day and we're catching our breath, so we thought it may be a good time to catch up on some juicy new footage of Nintendo's launch day titles, New Super Mario Bros. U and Nintendo Land. As part of what's looking like an increasingly encouraging launch line-up day, these titles represent Nintendo's first foray into HD gaming, after all.

The new trailer for New Super Mario Bros. U shows Bowser's dastardly means of kidnapping Princess Peach, varied environments, as well as the new Challenge Mode and the GamePad-influenced Boost Rush Mode. Nintendo Land's trailer, meanwhile, shows footage of quite a few events in single player, as well as co-operative and competitive multiplayer. Both videos are below, so enjoy!

I had already pre-ordered my Wii-U long before yesterday's announcements, but the Nintendo Direct blew me away! I'm now forced to get the ZombiU bundle(It still comes with nintendo Land, right??) new Super Mario Bros U, Lego City Undercover and then I need to save for 007 Legends, Black Ops 2(assuming it comes with the same dlc that 360 and ps3 will get - inc Nuketown 2025) and Epic Mickey 2!! What a great list of launch window games!!

I was on the fence with Wii U but I kinda want one now thanks to Bayonetta 2. I still don't want New Mario or Nintendo Land though. The new Rayaman and Zombie U would probably be the first games I get.

I'm getting both of these actually. Or, well, I'm getting NSMBU while getting NintendoLand with the system.

Looking forward to both.

NSMBU and Nintendo Land with the black Wii have already been pre-ordered for me, so launch day will be a good day.

I really want both of these games. Ask me that Wednesday, and I was pretty iffy on both. But NSMBU has great new modes, and Nintendo Land actually looks meatier than I expected.

Now I just need money...

I'm poor, but maybe in 5 years after Wii U is considered to be old then I'll finally get one haha

I wanna play both these games.

I ain't spending £250-£300 on a Wii U or £50-60 on either game to do so.

It would costs me around £350 to get a Wii U with NintendoLand bundled and an additional copy of New Super Mario Bros Wii U...and that still only affords me a solely single player experience on both NintendoLand and New Super Mario Bros Wii U for that price.

No deal.

Yeah, these are must-haves for our family.

But, so is Rayman Legends. Looks better every time I see more. Everyone see the shield cooperation stage on that one?

I have a feeling Wii Fit U is going to be a must buy as well... it sort of scratches that Wii Sports itch. I still enjoy that stuff and the more physically demanding the better.

Then there's Runner 2... Wonderful 101 looks VERY promising to me.

That's 6 games... we generally play a game or two to death over a couple months, so... I'm set for 4-6 months AT LEAST. Too many launch games? O_O

Really happy that Epic Mickey 2 is coming, just because I thought it was weird not to show up on the Wii U, timing-wise, but will wait for reviews on that one. Kind of annoyed that LEGO LOTR is not coming to the Wii U. I guess that will have to be PS3 for us.

NSMBU does look a lot better than NSMB2 but the trailer still felt too familiar when NSMB2 just came out a few weeks ago.

Gone from 'not excited' to "I'll probably get this". With double quote marks.

I´m actually much more excited for Nintendo Land that for NSMBU, which I´m going to skip for a while to avoid 2D Mario saturation.
