In the United States, the Wii U will launch on November 18. But what good is a console if there’s nothing to play on it? Today, Nintendo confirmed 23 launch titles, which is significantly more games than either the Wii or the Nintendo 64 launched with. Even better, there are some notable third-party games included with the always-excellent Nintendo games that come at the beginning of a system. Here your Wii U launch titles:

Call of Duty: Black Ops II
Skylanders Giants
Transformers Prime
Wipeout 3
Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two
FIFA Soccer 13
Tekken Tag Tournament 2
New Super Mario Bros. U
Ninja Gaiden: Razor’s Edge
Nintendo Land
Sing Party
Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed
Warrios Orochi 3 Hyper
Darksiders II
Assassin’s Creed III
ESPN Sports Connection
Just Dance 4
Rabbids Land
Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2013
ZombiU
Scribblenauts Unlimited
Game Party Champions
Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition

It’s great to see EA’s blue chip sports franchises, like FIFA, come out with the system. Also exciting is Assassin’s Creed III. It’s a pretty impressive launch lineup, and if you were holding off on the Wii U because of concerns about Nintendo’s third-party support, it’s safe to put them to bed. Now the only problem with the Wii U launch will be finding one.
