Nintendo Wii: Best Launch Lineup Ever?

Nintendo Wii
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, The Nintendo Wii is going to steal the show from Microsoft and Sony when it’s released later this year. It will be inexpensive, it features a revolutionary style of gameplay, and it will be backed by one of the most impressive launch lineups in history.

Nwizard has compiled a list of 27 confirmed titles for the Wii with over 30 expected to be available at launch. The current list is as follows:

Avatar: The Last Airbender THQ
Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII Ubisoft
Blitz: The League Midway
Call of Duty 3 Activision
Cars THQ
Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2 Atari
Dragon Quest Swords: The Masked Queen and the Tower of Mirrors Square Enix
Elebits Konami
Excite Truck Nintendo
Far Cry Ubisoft
GT Pro Series Ubisoft
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers Square Enix

This list has done a lot to alleviate my fears about the kinds of games that Nintendo has in mind for the Wii. For those of you who are counting, there are 23 launch titles coming from third party producers and there seems to be a good mix of games for children and adults alike.
