All Nintendo Console Launch Lineups!

For over 30 years Nintendo has been releasing home consoles. Below is a list of all the launch games that were available with each console. This is mainly here as note for Nintendo fans to not fret about the Switch launch. N64 launched with 2 games. Things turned out okay for that and I’m sure it will for the Switch.

Wii U had arguably the most games available at launch for a home Nintendo console yet it sold the worst. More launch titles doesn’t always = success.

    Say what you will about the Wii – it looks pretty sweet in that pic with the blue light in the disc opening

      Definitely! The black version looked sweet too with the blue light. I remember seeing that pic when it was called “The Revolution” and just thinking it was the coolest thing ever

        That light was bright too. It would illuminate my entire living room when it had an update and would sit there pulsating.
