If Nintendo Land is going to be everyone’s first party reason to buy a Wii U at launch, ZombiU looks to be the third-party reason.  Developed by UbiSoft, ZombiU plans to revolutionize the zombie survival genre in a way never previously thought possible because of the Wii U controller.

Sadly ZombiU didn’t get previewed live during the Nintendo Wii U Preview Event, but they did officially release this trailer for the game.

If this game can make launch, it would be fantastic for Nintendo.

ZombiU is coming exclusive to the Wii U.

Nintendo Land promises to show gamers all the new capabilities the Wii U brings to their fingertips just as Wii Sports did for the Wii when it launched back in 2006.  In all, eleven worlds are promised, with a wide range of different games to play in them.  Many are modeled after Nintendo’s most popular properties like Mario, PikiminZelda and Metroid.

Nintendo Land is coming November 18th, 2012 exclusive to the Wii U.  The game will be bundled with all black Wii U consoles.

This morning in New York City Nintendo officially announced the final price and release date for the new Wii U.

The Wii U will ship in two different versions.  One version, which will include the Wii U console and Wii U controller in white, will retail for $299US and contain 8GB of internal memory, as well as an HDMI cable, and charging cables for the Wii U console and Wii U Controller.

The second version, with the Wii U console and controller in black will retail for $249 US and feature everything that the white bundle will include, but will feature 32GB of internal memory, and charging docks for the Wii U controller.  However, what may be most important about this premium bundle is that it will include a full version of the game Nintendo Land.

Part of the reason why the original Wii was such a success was because Nintendo made the brilliant decision to bundle the Wii with a game that took full advantage of all the Wii’s new capabilities, and that game was Wii Sports.  Because of the incredible sales of Wii consoles since 2006, Wii Sports has become one of the highest selling games in history.
