Nintendo confirms multiple Wii U titles coming in 2013

"The fun of video games is not only just playing games, but also sharing experiences together with people – even though they live far away, their skill levels are different or their experience does not happen at the same time. We want Wii U to be the system that brings everyone together."
- Nintendo President Satoru Iwata

Today, Nintendo blew up the twitter feeds for over 300,000 people as they released information about the newest games coming to the Nintendo Wii U console. Fan boys everywhere were hyperventilating as favorite franchise titles streamed by during the new Nintendo Direct video. Nintendo President Satoru Iwata apologized to fans about the lack of titles out for the Wii U launch.
"There will be no new titles released for Wii U from Nintendo in January or February," Iwata said. "Nintendo takes seriously its responsibility to offer a steady stream of new titles in the very early days of a new platform to establish a good lineup of software. On the other hand, we also firmly believe we have to offer quality experiences when we release new titles.
"Based on our software development schedules at the end of last year, we concluded we should spend a little more time to satisfy our Nintendo standard of quality. I apologize to those supporting Wii U about the lack of new titles from Nintendo in January and February but please understand we will have new titles to offer from March onward."
Following that announcement, Nintendo revealed some spectacular titles to break our bank accounts.

The Legend of Zelda
Zelda has finally been announced to be headed to the Wii U with not just one, but two games! A Brand new title was announced, however we haven't been given a name to put to it yet. The second game will definitely get fans excited. A remake of the classic The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. This fan favorite is being remade specifically for the Wii U. How cool is that?


It wouldn't be Nintendo without that short, lovable plumber with the great stache.  The team behind the Super Mario Galaxy games for Wii and Super Mario 3D Land for Nintendo 3DS, is now working on the newest Mario title, a 3D action game made especially to show off the Wii U's gaming power. Also confirmed, is a new Mario Kart game. No further information has been announced, however gamers will get a chance to play both games at E3 in June.

Super Smash Bros. & Yarn Yoshi
The ever popular fighting game, Super Smash Bros., is headed to the Wii U later this year. While we don't have much in the way of information, new screenshots will be shown at E3. Along with the Smash Bros. announcement, came the news that the team behind Kirby's Epic Yarn is currently working on their newest creation. Yoshi, who hasn't been a main character on a console since the 1998 N64 game Yoshi's Story, is getting a whole new look. A yarn spun (Get it? Yoshi Yarn? No? You know what, shut up. It was funny.) for the beloved dinosaur, Yoshi will once again get to frolic in the fields.

With all these titles coming out, one thing is for sure. There will be no end to all of the lines at stores this year.

All those games.....
