Nintendo are gonna make me poor next year, some really nice games coming out, although I hope more 3rd parties will appear in the lists soon.

The only ones there I'm interested in are Scribblenauts, Lego City Undercover and potentially Pikmin 3. Still, it's good to see a much a wider variety.

Definitely Lego City Undercover, probably Rayman legends, Scribblenauts Unlimited I'll download on eshop, maybe Pikmin 3, but in the case of pikmin I won't buy it till a long while after it's released. The one thing that worries me about LC:U is the release date however. They haven't even given it a firm period like Q1, they've just said beginning of the year. That be anything from early January, to mid April for all we know! Although I do really hope it's closer to the former and not the latter.
Something's coming up the plumbing, poor Luigi's in a bind. Giant turtles are out to get him, Creepy Crabs are right behind. Spiders, flies. Jeepers! Yikes!, They're coming out the pipes. "MARIO! WHERE ARE YOU!!!"

Scribblenauts, Rayman, Pikmin and Lego City hopefully for me.
I'll miss out Luigi's Mansion for those four, but Rayman is by far my most anticipated game!
Could be in for an epic start to 2013! :D

My sentiments exactly. Might have to get a Wii U when this, Rayman, and Pikmin are all out at the same time.

F1 Race Stars ...really??
A Codemasters kart attempt! ...what gamers want, and really need is another REAL F1 racing game, not another kart game ...we have Mario and Sonic for that!!

Remember it is EA, they don't like Nintendo or Nintendo gamers much ...so expect something that looks very low budget!

They'll release F1 2013 when it gets to that time of year again, but they obviously didn't see the point in porting F1 2012 over.

F1 Race Stars is meant to be average, by the way/

Even if they were doing a straight port, it can't be that bad from xBox to the Wii U.

Any info about this F1 game? Is it a replacement for the usual yearly update? (Which, of course, the Wii hasn't had since 2009)

No, the usual yearly update has happened on other consoles and I see no reason why the 2013 game won't be on the Wii U. This is a kart racer with caricatures of the actual drivers on the real circuits (which have changed to make it more fun) while using generic items, to make it more interesting.

As much as I want Aliens Colonial Marines for my shiny new Wii U if they delay it much later than the Feb 12th release date for other consoles I will be buying it for PS3, I dont mind waiting a extra couple of weeks but if its an extra couple of months this is going to annoy a lot of people!
