E3 2012: Nintendo Wii U to Launch Before the Holidays

The much anticipated (at least by some) new Nintendo Wii U has had some more press at this week’s E3 show in Los Angeles. This thime around during Nintendo’s press confrence the company announced that its next-generation Wii U video game console will launch ahead of the holidays this year.

While the company didn’t provide a specific date for the launch it’s likely the device will be out before the traditional “Black Friday” in the U.S. That is, if they want to be sure and sell as any of the consoles as possible.

Pricing for the console has also not been announced. However, the company was able to confirm that the console will ship with the multiplayer game “NintendoLand” in addition to a GamePad controller.

As someone who rarely breaks out the Wii as it is now I don’t anticipate getting one of these when they do finally arrive. However, that shouldn’t stop any of you from getting one. Or, maybe you don’t care that much either?
