    Nintendo Reveals Wii U Worldwide Launch Dates


    Nintendo has today held special simultaneous events in Europe and the US to finally give us all the details on the Wii U. The console will be released on November 18 in the US, and November 30 in Europe. Just as in Japan, in the US and across Europe, the console will be offered in two configurations, with the Basic Set being white-only with an SRP of $299.99, and the Deluxe Set, which is black only, and also comes with Nintendo Land, costing $349.99. As far as prices in Europe are concerned, Nintendo says that retailers will set their own prices by law, so you should check with the individual retailer.

    Nintendo also took the opportunity to unveil Nintendo TVii, which will enable Wii U owners in the US and Canada to find, watch and engage with their favourite video entertainment in fun new ways, using the GamePad controller. Using Nintendo TVii, viewers will be able to watch video content from a variety of sources, including live TV, TiVo DVR, and video-on-demand services such as Netflix.

    Nintendo also confirmed some of the most highly anticipated launch games, including Nintendo Land, New Super Mario Bros.™ U, LEGO City: Undercover, BAYONETTA 2, The Wonderful 101™, Capcom’s Monster Hunter™ 3 Ultimate and Activision’s Call of Duty: Black Ops II.

    “The wait is almost over — in just 66 days, Wii U will arrive with the strongest lineup of launch software in Nintendo history,” said Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime. “With the integrated second screen of the included GamePad and features that instantly enhance the way people play games, watch video and interact with each other, consumers will see how Wii U delivers a completely unique experience and a remarkable value right out of the box. The new system also creates extraordinary new possibilities for game developers, bound only by the limits of their imaginations.”
    “The integrated second screen of the GamePad creates new possibilities for how games can be played, and further reflects the innovation Nintendo has poured into the Wii U,” said Eric Hirshberg, Activision Publishing’s CEO. “We’re excited for our fans to experience the biggest franchises, like Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Skylanders Giants and Transformers Prime, in new ways made possible on Wii U.”

    $300, excellent. Ninty hasn't let us down in the pricing department, and I was wrong t' at all doubt 'em in the first place. I can certainly afford to not wait for a price drop, but after hearin' of the overheating issues 'n such, I still won't get one right away. Once we get some status reports on the Wii U's defects; if any remain for the finished product; I'll drop the cash if things look good.

    waitwut? When the hell did Ninty partner up with Platinum to reopen the development of Bayonetta 2? That certainly slipped by unnoticed. Looks like Bayonetta 1 just jumped up my priority list a bit. It's kinda strange t' see two high profile M-Rated games are gonna be Nintendo launch titles, one of which bein' an exclusive. Perhaps even a third if AC:III shows up on time for launch. Strange sure as shit can be a good thing, 'course.

    Maybe it's 'bout time I give a damn over the series 'n give it a shot.

    Be aware that it's an addicting series. I somehow managed to get 1500 hours on it in the 1 and a half years I played it. Far more than any other game.

    I've logged that many on RDR in less time, so if I end up lovin' the game I'll probably do somethin' similar... Not like I have a life t' lose in the first place anyways.

    Its still a better deal to spend 349$ for a Wii u than earlier 400$ for a ps3

    And i know Nintendo will lower their prices down, i wont get horny and buy the console at once because i need to know the consoles defects too, just like some defects the wii 2006 version had.

    but i am so looking forward to get my hands on NSMBU and the new upcoming game SSBU

    Well, that was just my first profile. I went through 3 others after that.

    Never thought I'd know someone who put more hours into a single game than I so quickly... Impressive indeed.
