Nintendo: to launch Wii successor in key markets for year-end

OSAKA, Japan | Thu Jan 26, 2012 2:36am EST
(Reuters) - Nintendo will launch a successor to its Wii game console in the U.S. and other key markets in time for the crucial year-end shopping season later this year, Nintendo President Satoru Iwata told reporters on Thursday.

He said the WiiU would be launched in the United States, Europe, Australia and Japan for the year-end season.

So, we get to taste it before the world ends. That's not so bad.



Will most likely launch in Japan first.
Don't see them doing a simultaneous worldwide launch.



I thought this was common knowledge.



Great news! I am not sure that it was ever verified. So now we know.

I think everyone was (pretty much) expecting this ...

The real questions are whether Nintendo will release it earlier in the season (early October) or later (late November or Early December), whether it will launch on the same day in all regions or be released days/weeks apart, how many units Nintendo will be able to produce/ship, and how much it will cost.

I disagree. We got to taste the awesomeness only to be ripped apart a few days later.
