Are you ready to play WoW on Nintendo?

Editor's Note: g1 CommanderZaktan might have posted this first, but HarmlessHazard's post was easier on the eyes. Kudos to everyone who caught wind of this and we will follow up as the story develops.

According to Dual Pixels, games like WoW, DotA 2, and Counter Strike: Global Offensive, as well as many other unannounced titles will all be available for the Wii U at launch.

Here's what they had to say:

"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. "

The list is as follows:

  • Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD-Complete (Activision) (Launch)
  • Goldeneye 007: Reloaded (Acitivsion) (Launch)

Seems really strange to me. I mean WoW? DotA 2? And most of them are just ports and HD make-overs. I think I'll wait until E3 to see just how far fetched (or true!) this list really is.

What do you make of it?
