REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Nintendo is unleashing the largest launch-day video game lineup in its history for its new Wii U™ home console.

The high-definition Wii U system is available in two versions in the Americas, and each comes with a touch-screen Wii U GamePad controller.

  1. batman and skylanders sound cool.

    okay as you know everyone wants crash and put together some “Proof” that he is in the game so can you tell wether or not im getting somewhere

    “Crash would NEVER be DLC, he would be a free character.”

    “Of course we considered, Crash!”

    Superbot, the guys who are making the game said they had no problems with companies for character support, so I would definitely suspect Crash and Spyro

    superbot has been paying attention to who the fans want.

    1. They have been paying attention. Remember that article of mine (still up as a matter of fact) on the left hand side of the page? Yeah, I’ve sent it multiple times to my source, SuperBot, and Sony…so I’m sure it had an impact to some degree. 😉

  2. you don’t have to approve this message just want you to read it because there is no pm system on here, but can you reply to my pm on neogaf? it’s under the same name

  3. Hey Superbot just twitted that they wont be revealing anything at EuroGamer and wont for some time and looks like they are done with the reveals, can you give us more hints like you did before like the”one rpg character” for the rest of the characters left since it seemes we arent getting anymore and have to wait almost 2 months, can you restore the hype for this game by giving us more hints or character roster number plz reply
