Wii U Release Info Nintendo News #1

It's time for our first Nintendo News of the week! Possibly the biggest news in all of gaming this week has been the Wii U. Before this week all that was publicly known was the Wii U was coming out this year and games that would be coming to the system with no dates for their release. The public has multiple times been shown what the system would look like and how it would play also. The big three announcements was release dates, prices, and launch games.

The Wii U is releasing in North America on November 18th, Europe and Australia on November 30th, and Japan on December 8th. There will be a white and a black Wii U available at launch. The white Wii U will have 8GB of storage. It will be priced at $299.99 in the United States and ¥26,250 in Japan. The black Wii U will have 32GB of storage and will also a cradle and charging stand for the GamePad, a stand for the Wii U, and the game Nintendo Land. It will be priced at $349.99 in the United States and  ¥31,500 in Japan. No price information is available for Europe and Australia at this time. Also for the first time since the Nintendo 64 there will be a Mario game at launch, New Super Mario Bros. U.

Here is a sizzle reel that Nintendo has released with games that will be available for the Wii U.

Lastly in Nintendo release news are reports that multiple retailers (local and online) are ALREADY selling out of their pre-orders. If you are interested in getting a Wii U before 2013 then I recommend to pre-order and guarantee yourself a Wii U. I imagine that more similar reports will be coming down the pipe before Monday as word gets out about Wii U and the information that pre-orders are selling out.
