A video appeared on YouTube today with apparent information on the Wii U’s release date. More intriguingly, it also details multiple bundles that will supposedly be offered. The video shows a webpage from VDP, who distributes to Amazon, among other clients.
The webpage not only shows that the Wii U will be released on November the 11th this year, but that the console will be offered in 3 different bundles. Ranging from $250 to $350, the Wii U will be the first Nintendo console to come in more than one type at launch, perhaps now owing to internal memory playing a major role in the consoles of today. On the other hand, it may be due to the inclusion or exclusion of Wii remotes, tablet controllers or other peripherals. After Nintendo choose to sell the 3DS XL in Europe and Japan without including a charger in with the console anything is possible.
This information does seem to be supported by other rumors floating around the net about a release in November, but without official confirmation, I would take this news with a pinch of salt. The Wii U will be out before Christmas as was announced at E3, but for solid information I would wait until next week when Reggie is due to speak at a Nintendo event in New York. If the release is confirmed at this event, expect to find out which games will be joining the console on release day, as no official confirmation of release titles is yet available.
Our wonderful Skitch was quick to point out that recent Nintendo console are released around the 18th-21st of November (Gamecube, DS, Wii), so a November release is well within reason. All I know is, we in the UK are going to get overcharged for all hardware and probably have to wait a couple of extra days for the pleasure too! I’m not bitter or anything.
