Pre-orders for Wii U titles have hit 1.2 million, according to GameStop.

Speaking during a financial call to investors today, the firm’s president Tony Bartel name dropped ZombiU, Assassin’s Creed 3, Black Ops 2, Scribblenauts Unlimited and New Super Mario Bros. U as some of the titles customers have pre-ordered.

Bartel also reiterated it had sold out of its allotted 500,000 Wii U console reserves, which the firm announced back in September.

The retailer also noted the attach rate of Wii U was sitting at 2.4, which is more than double than Wii’s launch, according to GameStop.

Nintendo has predicted an attach rate of 4 for the fiscal year, which is a number third-party publishers look to when deciding whether to invest in developing for a console.
