Rumour: Blockbuster UK Lists Dozens of Possible Wii U Launch Titles

The launch of the Wii U is (probably) just two short quarters away and speculation is rife.  Specifically, everybody is wondering just what games will launch with the console.  Will it be a launch library equal to that of the Dreamcast and the original Xbox, or one that’s of the 3DS’ launch caliber (yes, it is still perfectly okay to rag on the 3DS’ horrible launch line-up)?  Well, today Blockbuster UK may have answered that question with an emphatic, “Better than all of them!”

Today GoNintendo got sent a tip by a user named “Ben.”  Said tip contained images of what appears to be Blockbuster’s internal database of titles and, more importantly, a collection of Wii U titles.  A number of these have already been announced, but quite a good many haven’t yet, and as a result, may have just been outed.

Hit the jump for the complete list of titles, as well as the incriminating pictures themselves!

The titles listed are:

Now, I don’t know about you lot, but I think that that is one hell of a launch list!  If even half of those actually turn out to be true (or not delayed, like in Metro: Last Light‘s case), then this will still be one of the best launch line-ups I have ever seen for a console.  I mean, new Mario, new Pikmin, new Rayman, new Tekken, new Splinter Cell, Arkham City, Colonial Marines…  Just gimme already!

The list is still unconfirmed at this time (or debunked, for that matter), but I’m sure that we’ll all hear more at Nintendo’s E3 press conference on the 5th of June.  Below is the complete collection of leaked images so you can take a look for yourself.
