Reggie Fils-Aime made a big deal about how the Wii U will totally play badass new games like Battlefield 3. Here are games they mentioned as planned for release on the new platform:

  • Metro: Last Light
  • Darksiders II
  • Dirt
  • Tekken
  • Ninja Gaiden 3
  • Batman: Arkham City
  • Ghost Recon Online
  • Assassin’s Creed: Revelations
  • Aliens: Colonial Marines

Cool? I have a hard time caring about this particular part of the Wii U announcement, and not just because a few of those games will have been out for months bythe time Nintendo’s new console even comes out. My real reservation: the people who want to play these games already can on as many as three other platforms. Why do we need a fourth?

This part of the announcement makes it feel like Nintendo is for the first time introducing a true current-generation console, and that’s kinda awkward. It’s too late to make any real headway into the current-generation hardcore market. Maybe if Reggie had said something about how these versions of the games would be higher res or something… but he didn’t.
