Nintendo has released a list of games that will be available for the Wii U’s launch on 11/18.  A large chunk of them are third-party games that will have already been released on other systems, but there’s a decent helping of first-party titles as well.  In addition to the initial 23 Wii U games that will be available on day 1, Nintendo also has promised an additional 29 games will be out by the end of March 2013 for the U.  You can check out the Wii U launch lineup down below.  You’ve been surprised with how fast the Wii U pre-orders sold out…
