A source close to Dual Pixels that has insider knowledge of Nintendo has revealed to us a major Wii U eShop leak featuring titles scheduled for launch and some that are in production for the platform. Wii U, launching this Fall is Nintendo's most technologically advanced console to date with horsepower that rivals PS3 and Xbox 360 allowing our current HD experiences to be recreated on the upcoming console. According to our source, developers are taking note of the opportunities Nintendo presents with Wii U, given the superior processing power that was unavailable on the original Wii. The Wii U eShop leak below contains titles from a suite of publishers including Nintendo themselves, EA, Capcom, Square Enix, Activision, Valve, and more.

There are a couple of interesting titles that stand out of the leak we received. World of Warcraft, love it or hate it, is one of the most popular PC games in history and yet apparently will finally make it's console debut with Wii U. In addition, Valve will be bringing the FPS Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (also coming to PS3 and Xbox 360), which will be the first time they've ever released a title on Nintendo platforms. Recently our source correctly revealed to us that Assassin's Creed 3 would be launching on Wii U later this year. As with all rumors, they should be taken with a hint of excitement; and more importantly, a grain of salt.

That launch line-up looks way too good to be true. Especially for a Nintendo console.

Not that it interests me in the slightest but World Of Warcraft on a console? Well played Nintendo, well played

Too good to be true, but WoW would actually work pretty well on Wii U (other than the no HDD thing).

If World of Warcraft was going to launch on a console, would it really be a digital release and not boxed retail product?

there's no way this is true. I think someone mixed up their wish list article with a rumor list

No. No way. I cannot possibly see that being true.

Launching with a new Burnout, Super Mario Strikers, and Boom Blox game would make me camp out for the console, though.

Someone wrote themselves a wishlist and stuck on a few more likely efforts to make it marginally more plausible. The Nintendo titles alone are extremely suspect.

WOW on consoles? If this is exclusive and people can carry forward their characters from PC...

Game Over

No reason why the Wii U couldn't support keyboard and mouse. Gamecube had a keyboard controller and I use a keyboard in Monster Hunter Tri to chat.

With nintendo's hands off approach to their online system, I can definitely see MMO developers flocking to the system.

Nintendo Make The MOVE! Most of the list is very possible, World of Warcraft would be a megaton if true
