Nintendo's Wii U will launch with 23 games, the company announced yesterday.

Nintendo, of course, will be leading the charge with four titles on store shelves the day its console launches on November 18. Chief among those titles is New Super Mario Bros. U, the latest installment in that franchise's long and storied history. Nintendo's Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge, Nintendo Land, and Sing Party will also launch on November 18.

The Wii U will also get support from several third-party publishers, like Activision, which will offer four titles on launch day, including Call of Duty: Black Ops II. Electronic Arts will offer up FIFA Soccer 13 on launch day, and Sega will launch Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed.

Nintendo earlier this month announced that a basic Wii U setup, featuring 8GB of memory, the console, and the Wii U Gamepad, will cost $299.99. A Deluxe set including all of that plus more memory, Nintendo Land, and a charging pad, will sell for $349.99.

At the event announcing the Wii U's pricing, Nintendo declined to announce any launch-day titles. Instead, the company said that it will have 50 titles available between November 18 and the end of March 2013.

In yesterday's announcement, Nintendo listed over 50 games that will either launch on November 18 or fit into the launch window -- defined by the company as ending March 31.
