As Midway revealed their lineup for next week's Electronic Entertainment Expo, it showed that even they had a few Wii titles up their sleeve. And, what’s more, the games look like they could be launch titles for Nintendo’s next-gen system. No word yet on how these games will make use of the controller, but we’ll be sure to let you know as soon as we find out.

The first game is the latest installment of the Blitz franchise, Blitz: The League.  Blitz, of course, is an "extreme" take on professional football.  It will be available this October.

The last two games, both based off of upcoming CGI-animated movies, will be available for the Nintendo Wii this November.  One of the games is The Ant Bully, in which you play as Lucas, the young boy from the film who tortures ants (hence the title) and then suddenly finds himself shrunk down to insect size. You’ll play through key sequences of the film as well as all-new quests created just for the game as you race to save the ant colony from extermination.

The other game is Happy Feet, which is based on yet another CGI-animated movie. Happy Feet is the story of Mumbles, an emperor penguin who is exiled from his community because of his love of tap dancing and absolute inability to sing a “heart song,” which is required in order to find a mate. In the game, “the player will be able to experience life from the point of view of Mumble in music, dance and interaction with the friends and enemies of the penguin's world.” So, you know, take that as you will.

We’ll have the rest of Midway’s E3 lineup in a separate story.
