10 Wii U games that should be on your radar

Finally, the next big console is only months away. Nintendo’s Wii U arrives in North America on November 18, and we’re excited to take home our brand new systems.

But the Wii U's launch window is huge — we’re talking from the pre-holiday release to March of next year. That’s a lot of time for the first wave of games. Below are 10 that should definitely be on your list.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate

Ultimate is an expanded version of Monster Hunter Tri for Wii, and it’s coming to both Wii U and 3DS in the spring. Can’t decide between versions? Since you can use the same save file for both, you can play solo, locally, or online at home and then take the adventure on the road. (The 3DS game doesn’t feature online play, but both versions are compatible with each other for local multiplayer.)

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate contains over 200 quests.

Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two

Developer Junction Point’s follow-up to its 2010 game Epic Mickey for Wii comes in two parts: The Power of Two for Wii U (coming at launch) and Power of Illusion for 3DS. In the former, Mickey Mouse and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit team up for an adventure through Wasteland.

A second player can control Oswald and play cooperatively, and the GamePad introduces some unique features, as well — like the ability to draw illustrations that manifest different ways within the game world.

Up next ...Clownthulu and all your Nintendo favorites in one.
