Sure does seem like the developers rely on you having gamers in the house. I for one have no one to play with and all the best games are local MP only.

ZombiU is supposed to represent the new hardcore direction yet its couch coop. Tank! Tank! Tank! is the only other game that I find even remotely interesting and its couch coop as well.

Just going down the list and looking into every game I could, I found zero that have online multiplayer.

Tekken Tag 2 will most likely be online.and ghost recon online is obviously online same with black ops 2.

BoPs 2 hasn't even been announced for WiiU (all rumors) and everyone will most likely buy it for established systems to play with a larger player base.

Ghost Recon was terrible but could have online. The more you look into these games the less and less they talk about online multiplayer. If a game is going to be online; its one of the biggest selling points yet no one has said anything. Its a pretty good bet that it wont be included if they are not putting it right out front first thing.

Mass Effect 3 has online multiplayer.
Assassin's Creed 3 has online multiplayer.
Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing Transformed has online multiplayer.

ZombiU and New Super Mario Bros. U use online, (not for multiplayer).

What was that about no games have online?

Blake: The Wii U came out in 2012. ._.

Sol: Well, to be fair, that was only about a year ago.

Mignaga: It might as well not be out at this point.

Sonic and Sega All Star Racing, Mass Effect 3, and Ninja Gaiden all have multiplayer as far as I am aware.

Mass Effect 3 has online multiplayer.
Assassin's Creed 3 has online multiplayer.
Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing Transformed has online multiplayer.

ZombiU and New Super Mario Bros. U use online, (not for multiplayer).

Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing Transformed - Couldn't find 1 reference to online multiplayer. Official site or interviews.
Mass Effect 3 - Might, not confirmed in any way
Assassains Creed 3 - Might, not confirmed in any way but is for others: http://wiiublog.com/...x-360-at-least/

The biggest problem we see here is that none of the devs will actually say it will.

so you assume that because they don't mention it that it won't happen? why would Nintendo work on a whole new online system if no games have online play?

Zombie U better be online...this is not 2001. Every new game should have some sort of online option. Come on Nintendo. Get it right!

Launch titles rarely have online functionality and this appears to be no exception. Online multiplayer is one of the main things to look for in any game and if anyone had it, it would of been confirmed already.

It for sure 100% does not have online multiplayer. Confirmed by developers that its couch coop only. The rage that brought on is what started the journey.

Ya know I agree with Oblivion 165. The only I have someone to play with is when my 2 friends (yes just 2) come over. It seems like not a lot of launch games have online multiplayer. I hope that somehow gets fixed. I'm wanna play online with people....

I'm not too bothered at the moment. I'll be playing NSMB with my family and any other games like Zombie U. I'm just looking forward to how the online functionality works, Sharing things, It's different so It's going to be great. Just think how much updates Wii U will have to their online system, They'll end up doing trophies if not for long.

This is kinda sad.....its things like this that make me feel like Nintendo does not get it. We live in a world where online is king. I am a busy person and my friends are to. We dont have time to get together a lot and just play vids. I play by myself a lot and like to just turn on a game and play a quick online match. Without this feature, this game is going to lack. Lots of games will lack without online.

Honestly I don't see any reason whatsoever for ZombiU, NSMBU, and Pikmin 3 not having online multiplayer functions. Especially when they're all going to have some form of local multiplayer available. I still think Nintendo is playing it far, far too safe with the Wii U. We have a proper online infrastructure now, so first party titles really should be adapting to that.

Ok cool? Name me a top franchise of Xbox or Sony that does not have online? This is not Mario. This is a zombie killing game. All games like this have online. The point is most people like to play online on games like this. This is a big wii u exclusive. So once I beat the game that's it? I'm done? I just don't see why it couldn't include some sort of online multiplayer.
