At next month’s E3 event in Los Angeles, Nintendo will take the wraps off its next-generation console, code-named “Project Cafe” and tentatively dubbed the Wii 2. The console will reportedly feature powerful new hardware architecture and yet another revolutionary controller, this time with rumored 6-inch touchscreen.

Of course, a console is worthless without solid launch games and a steady flow of must-buy games in order to maintain the new momentum that new machines tend to generate. LazyGamer has what it believes is a possible leaked list of titles that are currently being developed for the Wii 2 or are planned. Check out the full list after the break and decide for yourself if the list is bogus or not.

For the most part the list looks solid if Nintendo is supposed to recapture the hardcore gamer, but some of these are just fishy, Gears of War and Mass Effect on a Nintendo console? Microsoft would never let that fly. I call fake on most of these, but a GTA5 or Kingdom Hearts game on the Wii 2 would take the cake for moi.
