Nintendo is unleashing the largest launch-day video game lineup in its history for its new Wii U™ home console. When Wii U launches in the Americas on Nov. 18, 23 games from Nintendo and its third-party publishing partners will be ready to play as well. These include Nintendo-published games like Nintendo Land™, New Super Mario Bros.™ U, SiNG PARTY™ and NINJA GAIDEN™ 3: Razor's Edge, as well as third-party powerhouses like ZombiU™ from Ubisoft, Call of Duty®: Black Ops II from Activision Publishing, Inc., Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two from Disney Interactive, EA SPORTS™ FIFA Soccer 13 from Electronic Arts and Scribblenauts™ Unlimited from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. 

"We're making sure that Wii U owners will have great games to play from the moment they open the box, and that a steady stream of fun new games is always on the way," said Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America's president and COO. "We have something for everyone, from new franchises to creative new approaches to familiar favorites." 

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. The Basic Set will be offered in white at a suggested retail price of $299.99 in the United States, while the Deluxe Set, which includes higher storage capacity, additional accessories and Nintendo Land, will be offered in black at a suggested retail price of $349.99 in the United States. 

Wii U owners who connect their systems to the Internet also unlock a vast array of features to enhance their gaming, social and entertainment experiences. This includes features such as Nintendo eShop, which allows users to buy and download games directly to their systems, and Miiverse™, an online gaming community that lets players interact in new ways and share playing tips. Wii U owners in the United States and Canada will also have access to Nintendo TVii, which lets users access multiple sources of entertainment through a convenient GamePad interface.

Wii U Buyers Guide: Launch Games, The Window and Beyond

Originally posted on Vooks.net - 17 September 2012 | Written by:


The Wii U is launching in Australia on November 30th, that’s simple enough to get but what games are you going to be able to buy on day one? What games are coming out within this ‘launch window’ that Nintendo talks about?

This guide hopes to help sort all this out, at least over time.

You see at the moment there are about 40 games due between launch and March 2013 which is the launch window. That’s a lot of games, but only a few of them are coming at launch and that list is being added to at this point on a daily basis.

So if you’re looking at buying a Wii U and want a big list of games to pick from here’s the best place to check them all out in one go.

We’ll be updating the list from time to time, adding in more details, images and trailers as times goes on and the launch gets closer. If you have any questions, any problems with the list be sure to let us know in the comments and we’ll sort it out.

Guide: When and Where to watch Nintendo’s Wii U announcements

Originally posted on Vooks - 12 September 2012 | Written by:

Nintendo’s been dripping out announcements over the past two days about the upcoming Wii U announcements. There’s Nintendo Direct’s going on in Japan and Europe, Nintendo of America is holding their own event and it’s due to take place tomorrow. That’s September 13th for the majority of the world and that’s where the confusion sets in.

So in a bid to cut confusion and give everyone all the links they need to watch the events we’ve listed them all below in chronological order. That only goes so far because the European and America events are at the same time, just on opposite sides of the world.

Vooks will be live Tweeting all the events, you’ll be able to follow the action from in a story going up tomorrow or Twitter itself, for that you’ll need to follow myself.

Announcement: it’s the return of Livetumblring the BBC America broadcast premieres of the Doctor Who!



We’re livetumblring the east coast and west coast US premieres of Asylum of the Daleks on BBC America as we do with all new episodes!

For those who haven’t seen this sort of thing before, we reblog your reactions, your quotes, along with screenshots and gifs as they happen on the broadcast — it happens on your tv and you see it in your dashboard.



We do this from 9p-10:15p EDT, take a break to adjust the Helmic regulator, put up some non-spoilery posts during the break and then livetumbl again from 9:00p-10:15p Pacific Time.

Because we’re doing it in real time — there is no way for us to avoid posting spoilers during these hours!



**SO** if you need to avoid spoilers, install Tumblr Savior. <— That’s a link to instructions for all browsers. We will tag all of our posts ‘Asylum of the Daleks’. This will be the tag to avoid. We’re pinning this post to make sure that everyone sees *this specific piece of information*.

Alternate solutions include unfollowing and refollowing us or just stepping away from your dashboard for a bit b/c the UK premiere is just two hours away and we’re not the only ones who will be excited and posting reactions.



So yeah, for those of us who were with us for last season, we are so happy to have you back! For those who are #newtoWHO we are so happy you are here! We have it on good authority that this season is going to be amazeballs!

See you tonight!
