GameCube identification parade

Which of you is due on September 14th, mm?

Nintendo have unveiled the first solid details about the GameCube's launch line-up in Japan, two and a half months ahead of its release. It has six games lined up to go out before Christmas, each retailing for 6,800 yen ($55). On September 14th, along with the console gamers will be able to take home Luigi's Mansion and WaceRace: BlueStorm, both first party titles. Luigi's Mansion, as you may remember from E3, is an in-house developed game starring Mario's oft-forgotten taller brother, Luigi, as he explores a haunted mansion collecting ghosts. WaceRace: BlueStorm on the other hand, developed by Seattle-based NST and supervised by Shigeru Miyamoto, is the sequel to the classic WaveRace 64 and will no doubt spoil us once again with its luscious visuals. A little over a month later, on October 26th, buyers will be able to collect Miyamoto's personal brainchild, the peculiar yet lovable Pikmin. Shortly afterward, some time in November, HAL-developed Super Smash Brothers Melee will be released, and some time before the end of the year, Eternal Darkness and Animal Forest will complete the line-up. If there are any changes to this line-up, we should hear about them at SpaceWorld in August. Related Feature - Nintendo question Xbox release date
