GameStop listing points to Wii U launch line up

Pikmin 3 and Wii Fit U said to make "launch window"

A GameStop listing of supposed Wii U launch titles has appeared online.


According an image published on Zelda Informer, Nintendo titles such as Pikmin 3, Game & Wario, Wii Fit U and Project P-100 will all make the Wii U's "launch window".

CVG has contacted Nintendo for confirmation. Retailers routinely speculate on release dates, though Gamestop has a history of listing accurate information before it is officially announced.

Third party launch titles aren't specified in the GameStop listing, though games including Assassin's Creed 3, ZombiU, Mass Effect 3 and Batman: Arkham City - Armored Edition are said will be released this "Holiday".

Release info and pricing for Wii U is yet to be officially detailed by Nintendo, though a recent report cited a "senior publishing source" as saying the Wii U price will come in at under £250.

Japanese business paper Nikkei has previously claimed that the console will cost about 30,000 yen, which roughly converts to around £250.
