Nintendo on Tuesday announced that there will be 62 titles available for its forthcoming Wii video game console within five weeks of the device's expected Nov. 19 launch.

In a statement issued late Tuesday, the Japanese company said there will be 32 new titles for the $250 Wii by the end of the year, as well as a roster of 30 classic games.

Among the new titles will be "The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess," "Madden NFL '07," "Need for Speed: Carbon," "Call of Duty 3," "Marvel Ultimate Alliance," "Rampage: Total Destruction," "SpongeBob SquarePants: The Creature from Krusty Krab," "Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam," "Red Steel" and many others.

The Wii launch will come just two days after the planned November 17 launch date of Sony's own next-generation video game console, the PlayStation 3.

On October 19, Sony said it would launch the PS3 with 22 titles.

Microsoft's next-generation entry, the Xbox 360, was released last fall.
