Six Confirmed Launch Titles

Edit: There seems to have been some confusiion over this post, specifically that this list is the launch list of titles for the Wii on launch, however, these are six confirmed titles scheduled for Wii's launch. This list is not definitive, nor is it final, and is subject to change at any time.

The latest issue of Nintendo Power has let loose with, at least let's hope, a preliminary list of software that will be available for Wii on launch day. According to Nintendo Power, there will be six titles launched in the US for Wii's opening launch. There will be two first party titles, and four titles provided by third parties.

Below is a list of the confirmed companies, and the titles supplied by each:

Ubisoft
Red Steel - Video 1 - Video 2
Rayman Raving Rabbits - Video 1 - Video 2

Sega
Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz - Video

Square Enix
Dragon Quest Swords: The Masked Queen and the Tower of Mirrors - 2 Second Clip...

Nintendo
Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess - Video 1 - Video 2 - Video 3 (Long)
Metroid Prime 3: Corruption - Video 1 - Video 2


Unfortunately, it appears that Super Mario Galaxy might not be available on launch day, and they were fuzzy about the release dates on their other software, such as Wii Sports. I can only assume that they may opt to make those titles launch titles. So they may revise this list at a later date.

The lack of Mario at launch has been a bad omen for Nintendo... Gamecube didn't have a Nintendo title at launch, and that system didn't do too hot. Do you think Wii could suffer if they lack a Mario title at launch?

Then again, I don't think they've ever had a Legend of Zelda be a launch title... God I can't wait.

Mario Galaxy was never slated for launch, the said six months after launch @ earliest i believe.

Just enough to time to play some Metroid and Zelda before they get stale.
also looking forward to super monkey ball.

I was under the impression that LoZ was pushed to November. Is that the release month or considered in the "launch window"?

Bingo.

And Zelda at launch makes up for lack of Mario at launch, in most people's minds.

Personally I want to know more about excite truck. I think Nintendo have done something very tricky with the way they control the game just quietly =)

As for Mario Galaxies I think it has a really grand way of dealing with camera issues and will definatley be looking into how the Spongebob squarepants games plays as reference. But the whole E3 Demo was basically Some of the Iceland Levels from M64 Plus point and click adventure.

It seems very light on for content doesn't it? or is that subdefuge?

Red Steel still looks like a steaming pile of ASS control wise and everyone in the Wii advertising behaves just like Fred Savage in the Wizzard while using the Powerglove. He is acting like a guy playing a game. No one in there right mind would play like that. Yes even Gangster Style

Heres hopeing we see a 2D Mario game on Wii sometime soon that uses the Gangster Style Twistyness to move Mario left and Right respectivley Using A and B for Run/Shoot and Jump!

Didn't the N64 have a Mario title at launch?

I was certainly under the impression the Gamecube has done better than the N64.

No, the GameCube has sold around 20 million units, while the N64, if I remember correctly was around 30-40 million.

I think Zelda will make up for the lack of Mario. They need to pace they're AAA titles. I don't think they would want to release Mario Galaxy at the same time as Zelda.

this is just a handful of the titles that'll be available at launch, as nintendo had said that the launch titles would hover around the 20 mark, with a third being developed/published by them.

I'm hoping there is more than this. While those titles there appear solid...that's a severe lack of content.

All would be forgiven if that had a pretty heft portion of old games available for download via the online service.

I was seriously wanting Warioware at launch. As far as I can tell, it would be the best showcase for the new controller, while still allowing more than one player (IE me and my kids, maybe the wife) to play all at the same time. However, I'll be picking up Metroid, and possibly Monkey Ball.

I can't believe you're complaining when we have ZELDA _AND_ METROID, 2 of the Big 3, at launch. Now the 360 launch, that was the worst selection of titles in the history of consoles.

And the Gamecube is a success. Nintendo take this generation.

I guess I'm the only one really excited about a Dragon Quest game being available at launch?

I'm not big on Nintendo's franchises. Zelda looks like a good game...but I hated Metroid Prime 1 and didn't even play 2.

I was really excited about Red Steel until I saw the videos and such from E3. Now it's just...meh.

QFT...I can do without Mario for a little bit if I get Metroid and Zelda.
