Wii U UK launch line-up revealed
Nintendo says its UK launch title line-up for its new Wii U console - out on 30 November - is the strongest in its history. There are 24 games launching with the innovative machine and British gamers will also be able to choose between three hardware bundles, with one of them including the eagerly anticipated ZombiU.
The Ubisoft zombie game, an exclusive to the console, is packaged with a special limited edition of the Premium Pack. Normally, Premium Pack purchasers get a copy of the first-party title Nintendo Land. Those with more hardcore tastes can choose to have ZombiU instead and will also get a Wii U Pro Controller bundled for good measure.
The other option is the white Basic Pack, which comes with an 8GB version of the console (in preference to 32GB). It doesn't come with any software.
Games available in stores from day one (not including those that will be able to be downloaded from the Nintendo eShop) are:
Call of Duty: Black Ops II
Disney Epic Mickey 2. The Power of Two
EA Sports FIFA 13
Mass Effect 3 Special Edition
