With Nintendo having just unveiled its latest console the Wii U, the company has posted a video showing a selection games consumers can expect to see in its launch line-up later next year.
The Wii U, formerly known under the codename Project Cafe, was revealed at this year's E3 expo in Los Angeles and has already managed to get critics and consumers alike buzzing.
Having managed to create a significant amount of hype before its big reveal, Nintendo's press conference confirmed many of the rumours surrounding the console. Specifically that it will have a tablet sized controller with its own touch screen and it will be capable of running HD 1080p graphics.
But other than a few demos played to its captive audience Nintendo was actually fairly tight-lipped about several aspects of the Wii U.
Not only did the company refuse to divulge any concrete release date or estimated price, Nintendo also left users with no clear information regarding the hardware behind and graphical clout of its new console.
For this reason many users have already begun using a subsequent video showing several third party games set to come out on the console as an example of the consoles power.
The video showed footage of:
Darksiders 2 (THQ)
Aliens: Colonial Marines (Sega)
Tom Clany's Ghost Recon Online (Ubisoft)
Metro: Last Light (THQ)
Tekken (Namco Bandai)
Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge (Tecom Koei)
Unfortunately, as reported by Eurogamer, the footage cannot be taken as an example of the new console's graphics. According to the website all the games footage actually comes from the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 versions of the titles -- meaning gamers will have to wait a little longer to find out just how powerful the Wii U is.
While gamers may be disappointed by the news, one possible silver-lining lies in the fact that the video showed numerous third-party developed titles set to come out for the console.
Nintendo's current console, the Wii, has struggled to attract the interest of many developers due to the increased effort and cost creating motion controlled games can cause. This has in turn led to a shortage of strong non-Nintendo developed titles on the console.
The fact that so many developers including Ubisoft and THQ have shown willingness to develop for the Wii U could demonstrate a possible rectification of this problem by Nintendo for its new machine.
Additionally the inclusion of several M-rated titles in the video, could hold off speculation that the new Wii U console will simply cater to the children's and casual gaming markets.
As before, it seems gamers will have to wait a little longer to find more about Nintendo's latest console.
