Nintendo Wii U UK and US release dates revealed

  • by

After being officially launched at this year’s E3 expo in Los Angeles and various reviews and leaked information filtering through the internet, we’d like to think we know pretty much everything about the Nintendo Wii U.

The two vital questions we still needed answering however are when can we buy one, and how much will it cost? Thankfully today Nintendo is addressing our questions in separate events across the world, and now they’ve finally gotten round to the UK.

We’ve been guessing release dates for some time now, but now Ninty has kindly confirmed that the Wii U will be available here on November 30th, which is something of a surprise. We’ll be getting the console before Nintendo’s home country of Japan does (8 days before), but a good 12 days after the US gets it (boo, etc.)

Two versions will be available, as we found out earlier; the Basic set, which has 8GB of internal memory, a HDMI cable, a white console and one GamePad controller, and the Premium set which comprises of a black console with 32GB memory, one GamePad controller, a HDMI cable and a wireless GamePad charging dock.

Nintendo has said that the prices for both consoles should begin to appear on retailer websites very soon.
