Nintendo is unleashing its largest launch-day video game lineup in its history for its new Wii U home console.  When the gaming console launches in the Americas on November 18, a total of 23 games from Nintendo and its third-party publishing partners will be ready to play as well.

"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.
