Anyone concerned that the UK Wii U release date may not fall in 2012 should think again. Nintendo has confirmed that the Wii U will be released in Europe, Australia, the US and Japan before Christmas 2012.
Nintendo President Satoru Iwata told reporters that Wii U will be out in the US, Europe, Japan and Australia "for the year-end season".
Of course both Reggie Fils-Aime and Satoru Iwata had previously confirmed that the Wii U release date would fall between E3 and the end of the year but it's great to know that the Wii U will also be released in Europe in 2012.
So when will Wii U be released? What does the "for year-end season mean?" Does that just mean it is coming before the end of the year or that it will be released during the year-end season?
We'll find out at E3 2012. In the meantime, make your Wii U release date predictions.
