Nintendo Wii U Has Many More 3rd Party Games Than Previously Announced
Nintendo's upcoming console will have many more games than those announced at E3.
Nintendo has plenty in store for the Wii U from its in-house developers, but 3rd party games appeared to be largely absent from Nintendo's E3 press conference.
This lead many to believe that the console wouldn't have much 3rd party support outside of the games already confirmed by Nintendo, including Batman Arkham City and Rayman Legends.
However, it looks like the Wii U may yet play host to much more games than we previously thought. In the latest Official Nintendo Magazine podcast, the magazine's Editor-in-Chief Chandra Nair says that there will be a whole bunch of new titles at the upcoming Gamescom and TGS events.
“It’s actually a moment I cant talk about, because my favourite bit of E3 was finding out about all the cool third party stuff that’s coming for the Wii U, which they decided not to talk about, which was awesome," he said. "So I just want to say yeah, there’s loads of third party stuff coming which I reckon we might see at Gamescom, or we might see at TGS, but its coming. That was my favourite bit because everyone was saying “No one’s bringing out anything for Wii U”, and I saw some cool things."
Gamescom is set to take place on August 15-19, while the Tokyo Game Show will happen about a month later, on September 20-21.
