Nintendo has officially announced the 23 games that will launch alongside the Wii U on November 18. According to Nintendo, this is the largest day-on launch line-up of any console ever. It’s also worth noting that there is a pretty solid spread of first-party and third-party titles releasing on day one. Maybe this is a sign that the Wii U will have that consistent third-party support that previously Nintendo consoles have failed to capture.

Below you can see the complete list of titles coming out. Games that aren't marked "Nov. 18" will launch during the console's launch window, which means some time between November 18 and March 31, 2013.
