First-party Wii U games trademarked

Nintendo has registered trademarks for a range of Wii U video games and peripherals, continuing some of the original Wii’s biggest brands.

While none of the trademarks may come as a surprise, it does suggest that Nintendo will offer a similar line-up to that of its current console. It is also important to note that none of these trademarks confirm that these products are in development, but we’d be very surprised if Wii Sports U wasn’t on shelves at launch.

The trademarks were found by Siliconera, and surprisingly include variations of Wii U Music, suggesting a successor to the disappointing Wii Music. The addition of WiiWare U lends itself to more downloadable games on the console.

It also mentions new versions of the Wii Zapper, Wii Balance Board and Wii Wheel. As Nintendo has announced before, all Wii peripherals will be compatible with Wii U.
