    A source close to Dual Pixels that has insider knowledge of Nintendo has revealed to us a major Wii U eShop leak featuring titles scheduled for launch and some that are in production for the platform. Wii U, launching this Fall is Nintendo's most technologically advanced console to date with horsepower that rivals PS3 and Xbox 360 allowing our current HD experiences to be recreated on the upcoming console. According to our source, developers are taking note of the opportunities Nintendo presents with Wii U, given the superior processing power that was unavailable on the original Wii. The Wii U eShop leak below contains titles from a suite of publishers including Nintendo themselves, EA, Capcom, Square Enix, Activision, Valve, and more.

    Nintendo Wii U eShop Titles In Development

    Level 5

    Ubisoft

    I Am Alive (Ubisoft) (Launch)

    Valve
    DotA 2 (Valve)
    Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (Valve) (Launch)

    There are a couple of interesting titles that stand out of the leak we received. World of Warcraft, love it or hate it, is one of the most popular PC games in history and yet apparently will finally make it's console debut with Wii U. In addition, Valve will be bringing the FPS Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (also coming to PS3 and Xbox 360), which will be the first time they've ever released a title on Nintendo platforms. Recently our source correctly revealed to us that Assassin's Creed 3 would be launching on Wii U later this year. As with all rumors, they should be taken with a hint of excitement; and more importantly, a grain of salt.

    Update/Edit: Note that every Wii U eShop game above isn't a launch title, unless it is listed as such (Launch). The titles above that are identified as launch titles have been indicated as so by our source. As with our source's previous reveal of Assassin's Creed 3 coming to Wii U prior to it being made official, we expect these titles to be formally announced for Wii U's eShop leading up to or during E3.

    Eh...... I'm calling fake here. I HIGHLY doubt World of Warcraft or CS:GO, though not much else is a huge stretch. Still, I highly doubt it's real.

    Whats so farfetched about Valve's newest FPS being released on the first next-gen console?

    I very much doubt the whether some of those games (WoW, DotA 2 and CS:GO in particular) will be available for download.

    Also coming to the WiiU, Halo 4, LittleBigPlanet, Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3! Someone has great imagination there at Dual Pixel, whoever they are. :lol:

    Er, no. The entire game was finished over six months ago. Reportedly, the publisher was just holding back the release until a good time.
    Or if this ridiculous rumour is to be believed, porting it to Wii U.

    On a related note, SEGA isn't actually the publisher for Rodea. That's either a simple error, or a strike against the credibility of this list.

    I don't see how dota 2 would work on the Wii U. Unless they add a mouse attachment like the SNES mouse, they would have to remake the user interface and ultimately how to game is controlled and just sounds like utter :shit:

    Why the scepticism over CS:GO? It's already getting PS3 and 360 releases, and Gaben has expressed interest in the Wii U. In fact, it's the most plausible title on the list.
    Was it now? Explain.

    A Blizzard game on the list is the nail to the lists coffin. After Starcraft 64, the company vowed (no, seriously) to never release another console game due to hardware restrictions. They tried with Ghost, but that got cancelled quickly, probably for the same reasons. This team makes PC games, I'm pretty sure they don't even own console devkits and it's been a whole console generation since they've expressed even a speck of interest in console games. No go, I don't buy it.

    How the hell would you play wow without a keyboard, I mean really it has a shit-ton of buttons, last time I played I used about 2 keyboard rows.

    EDIT: and no using the screen on the controller wouldn't work either

    The characters already have the personality of a piece of cardboard and the games are suspended on a paper-thin timeline, it's already paper Zelda to a certain extent.
