Console launches always drum up excitement about the possibilities of new hardware, but it is rare for a plethora of groundbreaking day-one game releases to pour out of the gate when any new system hits store shelves.
It takes time for a console's catalog to fill out, and the Wii U is no different. While Zombie U, Scribblenauts, New Super Mario Bros. U, and Nintendo Land stand out as promising additions to Nintendo's roster, most other notable games have either been released on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 already, or will launch simultaneously across all platforms. Below is a breakdown of Nintendo's day-one releases.
