Nintendo has confirmed that five independent games, and a demo of FIFA 13, will be available on the eShop download store when Wii U launches in Europe tomorrow.

The line-up is almost identical to that which greeted those who bought the system when it launched in the United States earlier this month. WayForward Technologies’ Mighty Switch Force: Hyper Drive Edition is the only absentee, replaced by Neko Entertainment’s physics puzzler Puddle.

Also available at launch are Trine 2, the striking puzzle-platformer from Finnish studio Frozenbyte; Little Inferno, which we reviewed on PC earlier this week; twin-stick shooter Nano Assault Neo; and asynchronous multiplayer action game Chasing Aurora. Look out for reviews on the site early next week.

The Wii U eShop lineup in full:

Trine 2: Directors Cut, £10.99/€13.49
Puddle, £7.19/€7.99
Nano Assault Neo, £8.99/€9.99
Little Inferno, £12.99/€14.99
ChasingAurora, £10.79/€11.99
