News: 32 Wii games and 30 Virtual Console games. Whoa!

Late last night, Nintendo gave out the best treat it had left in its goodie bag when it revealed the full launch window lineup for the Wii.

All 32 (!) of these titles will be available sometime between the system's launch on November and December 31. Most of the titles will ship before the end of November and Nintendo has confirmed that The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Excite Truck and Wii Sports will be available on day one.

Sadly, it appears that previously thought launch titles like Blazing Angels, Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles, Dragon Quest Swords and Blitz: The League will not be making the launch.

Here's the full launch lineup:

Avatar: The Last Airbender
Call of Duty 3
Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2
Far Cry: Vengeance
GT Pro Series
Happy Feet
Ice Age 2: The Meltdown
Madden NFL 07
Marvel: Ultimate Alliance
Metal Slug Anthology
Monster 4X4 World Circuit
Need For Speed Carbon
Open Season
Rampage: Total Destruction
Rapala Tournament Fishing
Rayman Raving Rabbids
Red Steel
SpongeBob SquarePants: The Creature from the Krusty Krab
Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz
Super Swing Golf
The Ant Bully
The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Double Agent
Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam
Trauma Center: Second Opinion
World Series of Poker: Tournament of Champions

Nintendo has also confirmed that 32 titles will be available on the Virtual Console in the Wii's first five weeks of life. The NES and Genesis get most of the love, but I am amazed that the original Super Mario Bros. is nowhere to be seen. I'm sure it's coming soon.

Here's the full list:

NES (500 Wii Points)
Donkey Kong
Donkey Kong Jr.
Ice Hockey
Mario Bros.
Solomon's Key
The Legend of Zelda
Urban Champion
Wario's Woods

SNES (800 Wii Points)
