The third game in the Scribblenauts series may have the same basic principle - type any noun with any adjective and see it appear as an object in front of you - but the addition of a new object editor gives the "Unlimited" moniker its credibility. Multiple objects can be combined, resized and rotated, and AI can be assigned, allowing you to make nearly anything or anyone you can think of with a little imagination. We look forward to finally bringing our anxious purple giraffe-faced winged pizza into the world.
The latest instalment in 2K Sports' basketball series has been out for a while on other HD systems but the Wii U version, providing the port goes fine, will mark the first truly fantastic sports game on Nintendo's new console.
Packed with everything featured in the other versions - including the incredibly detailed and time-consuming My Player career mode, which we've put hundreds of hours into on other systems - the Wii U version also includes a biometrics feature which lets you lift the GamePad to see a biometric scan of your players and see their energy levels.
New Super Mario Bros. U may be unrivalled at the moment when it comes to side-scrolling Wii U platformers, but that's about to change with the arrival of the visually stunning Rayman Legends. With a level of detail that surpasses even that seen in Rayman Origins, this is the closest we've ever come to playing a polished animated cartoon. There's a free demo currently available on the Wii U eShop, so give it a download and see for yourself why we're so pumped for this one.
