Third-Party Games Coming to the Wii U, 3DS

/ Jun 13th, 2013 No Comments

Nintendo's E3 Lineup

In addition to the numerous first-party exclusives brought up in the Nintendo Direct conference, they also included release information for many upcoming multi-platform third-party titles. This 2013 release schedule for Wii U only goes through the end of the year, but it covers most of the major multi-platform games coming up in that period.

Upcoming Wii U Releases

Unknown Date
Deus Ex: Human Revolution-Director’s Cut (Wii U)

August
Disney’s Planes – August 6 (Wii U, Wii, 3DS, DS)
Disney Infinity — August 18 (Wii U, Wii, 3DS)
Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist — August 20 (Wii U)

Fall
Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure (Wii U, 3DS)

September
Rayman Legends – September 3 (Wii U)

October
Skylanders SWAP Force – October 13 (Wii U, Wii, 3DS)
Batman: Arkham Origins – October 25 (Wii U)
Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate – October 25 (3DS)
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag – October 29 (Wii U)

November
Watch_Dogs – November 19 (Wii U)

In addition, Nintendo has made deals to bring more purely digital games to the Wii U eShop. The titles mentioned thus far are much less prestigious and well-known than the above games. Some of the games included are DuckTales: Remastered, Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara, Coaster Crazy Deluxe, Ballpoint Universe, A World of Keflings, Scram Kitty and his Buddy on Rails and Spin the Bottle: Blimpies Party.

Combined with the numerous first-party offerings, Nintendo’s third-party release schedule does help assuage concerns about the Wii U’s game lineup for the near future. However, as this third-party schedule only goes up through the end of this year, gamers do not have assurances yet that Nintendo will be able to maintain this level of third-party support once the Playstation 4 and Xbox One are released and developers have made developing for those systems the new standard. Nevertheless, as long as Nintendo can maintain or even expand this current level of third-party support, they will be a strong contender in this console generation.
