At last, been waiting for a date for Lego City Undercover for ages, going to have to start saving the pennies now if I'm going to be able to afford all the games I want in March.

Monster Hunter and Lego City Undercover make me want to buy a Wii U (along with Mario and ZombiiU obviously). I held off on buying one due to my day one purchase of a Wii that then got sold after a couple of months. Hopefully i can hold out a little longer and see what other future releases are planned before splashing on a Wii U

Might be time for me to clear the cobwebs and buy a WiiU now. Wanted a reason, and now with this line up seems the perfect time to get one.

These are American dates. We can add anything from up to 3 months for it to launch :( Lego and Monster Hunter on the same day and weeks within Tomb Raider and Pirate Warriors however :( Maybe I'll keep one back till April for my Birthday.

So... where's Pikmin 3 and Wonderful 101 then? Weren't those promised as "launch window" games? Seriously, the only worthwhile exclusive there is Rayman, and that's been strongly rumoured to be coming to other consoles eventually. That's a truly dire looking few months for the Wii U and no mistake. Also interesting to note that Fist of the North Star's retail release was cancelled on Wii U but not PS3 or 360. Looks like publishers aren't prepared to take risks with the Wii U so easily anymore.

Pikmin 3 was delayed and it should be released between April and June. Wonderful 101 was promised a Japanese Launch Window release with the US release to follow their after then finally Europe will get it. Also Platinum Games have 3 games ongoing since before the Wii U launch (Revengence is close) so give them a break

Didn't Ubisoft already confirm that it's not coming for other consoles too?

They haven't said outright it's not as far as I'm aware, and there have been retailer listings hinting at a Rayman game on PS3/360 this year, so it isn't out of the question. Really though, I can't see a good reason for them to not release it on everything going as they did with Rayman Origins. It's going to sell nothing on Wii U and I'm sure they don't want all that hard work going to waste.

'In the interview, McEntee stated, “Here you buy the Wii U system, you buy the game, and you can experience all of the content without extras. And we didn’t want to give somebody half of the experience just for the sake of getting it out on another console.”' So yeah. We might get a half-assed port on the 360 and PS3/Vita instead.
