Wii U Launches in NYC, ZombieU & New Super Mario Bros. U first Games Purchased

The 2012 Wii U launch has come and gone.

In contrast to 2011’s 3DS launch event (staged at Best Buy in Union Square), Nintendo had a markedly more successful NYC launch than for its latest gaming console.

While the Rockettes were dazzling tourists at Radio City Music Hall, Nintendo fans lined up in front of the Nintendo World Store at Rockefeller Center. The Wii U customer line wrapped around the Rockefeller Center area, starting at 48th Street and going north on 6th Avenue – to continue onto 49th Street. The 3DS launch barely had a line that extended down half a city avenue block (in NYC, avenue blocks in are already typically half the length of street blocks).

EDITOR’S PICK: Nintendo’s Revolution 6 Years Later

While gamers counted down the moments to the Wii U launch (midnight Nov 18), Mii’s danced to pop music ranging from Starship’s “We Built This City” to more contemporary chart toppers.

Once again, Triforce – wearing his Power Glove and classic controller jacket – was first on line at the gaming launch event. Nintendo’s President Reggie Fils-Aime rang up his purchase. Triforce also picked up ZombieU and New Super Mario Bros. U as his first titles – and thus the first games bought for the Wii U console in North America.

What games will you pick up?

Have no fear Monster Hunter lovers, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate (for Wii U and 3DS) is only a few months away.
