During this year’s E3, Nintendo impressed many (and confused many more) with its new console, the Wii U. The new Nintendo touchscreen controller was demoed with a bunch of faux games that were used to show off the capabilities of the new controller. Sure, many of the tech demos seemed pretty impressive, but they weren’t anywhere close to full games. Nintendo and a few third parties stepped up and announced several games that would be coming to the new hardware, but all of the announcements severely lacked in the detail department.

Quite a few titles were announced for the Wii U, but which games stood head-and-shoulders above the others? We’re glad you asked, because we’ve compiled a list of five Wii U-exclusive games that have been announced, and will hopefully make the system worth owning when it launches next year. Without further ado, Game Rant presents the Top 5 Most Anticipated Games on the Wii U.

LEGO City Stories for Wii U

LEGO City Stories is a yet another new LEGO-filled title from the fine folk at Traveler’s Tales, but it’s a little bit different than the other licensed LEGO games currently available. LEGO City Stories sets itself apart from past games that feature plastic collectibles, and it does so by ditching the generic level schematic and introducing gamers to an open-world city inhabited solely by LEGOians.

Not much has been revealed about the new game, but players will likely be able to customize their character and create all kinds of awesome gadgets to overcome missions and challenges that are scattered all across City Stories. The end result – if all goes according to plan – should be an open world game similar Grand Theft Auto, but with all kinds of awesome building and vehicles to create and subsequently destroy.
