E3 2013: Wii U Leads All Platforms in Number of Exclusives at the Show, Vita and PC Tied For Least

on June 12, 2013 11:28 PM

It’s funny how these things work themselves out. Apparently when no one was looking, Nintendo’s Wii U, which has actually been somewhat of an anomaly at E3 this year, is the platform with — by far — the highest number of exclusive titles at the show. No, really.

With all of the games that were shown at both the Microsoft and Sony press conferences, you would think that either one of those companies would have the most exclusive content under their belts, and well… you’d be wrong. Nintendo’s misunderstood Wii U, has 13 exclusives on the show floor, and thanks to a chart posted by redditor Whitexar, it’s much easier to get a better picture of what’s going on.

Here’s the full list of exclusive Wii U titles (in alphabetical order):

  • Bayonetta 2
  • Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Breeze
  • Game & Wario
  • The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
  • Mario Kart 8
  • New Super Luigi U
  • Pikmin 3
  • Super Mario 3D World
  • Wii Fit U
  • Wii Party U
  • The Wonderful 101
  • X
  • Yarn Yoshi

Rounding out the lower end of the list are the PC and the Vita, both featuring 2 exclusive titles each. Considering that they’ve been the butt of every gaming joke on the internet this week, Nintendo’s Wii U offering is nothing to laugh at especially when you consider that it offers the most exclusive content out of the big three.

Take a look at the full chart — featuring all of the games on the show floor — below:
