Earlier today, in an official Nintendo press release, Nintendo confirmed twenty-three titles that will launch in tandem with the Wii U. In addition to these confirmed day-one launch titles, nine more are scheduled to release at some point later in the same month and twenty more will be released at some point from December through the end of the Wii U launch window, which happens to be March 31st, 2013. The day one launch list is the biggest in the history of Nintendo. It seems Nintendo have learned from their mistakes, as seen with the Nintendo 3DS launch in early 2011. So far, this is an impressive list with a total of fifty-two titles scheduled to launch during the span of the Wii U's launch window.
