Wii U to launch with a Mario game

Spike’s Geoff Keighley revealed that the Wii U is going to come out and launch with a Mario game on Day 1. Refusing to reveal anything else, this leaves a ton of possibilities up in the air – will it be another epic 3D adventure? Or perhaps a laid-back sports game? Maybe an early coming [...]

At their last investor relations meeting, Tecmo Koei revealed that Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge is slated to be a Wii U launch title. It’s looking like a very solid game so far, so it’ll be great to have it there right out of the gate. What’s more, Amazon are already taking pre-orders, so if [...]
