Hopefully the guys will post this up on the main site soon, I've gotten the press release from Nintendo Australia and here it is as follows.

"13th September 2012 – Following today’s European Nintendo Direct presentation, Nintendo Australia announces that their latest home console, Wii U, will launch across Australia and New Zealand on 30th November, 2012. Wii U is an HD console that offers more choice and variety of gameplay than ever before, with brand new gaming experiences enabled by the innovative Wii U GamePad controller, whether playing alone or together with friends. The Wii U GamePad offers an integrated second screen and can also be used independently of the TV set with certain software."

"Two launch hardware packs were announced along with the strongest line-up of launch software in Nintendo history. These include third-party heavy hitters such as FIFA 13 from Electronic Arts and Activision’s Call Of Duty®: Black Ops II, Ubisoft’s ZombiU™ and RAYMAN® LEGENDS as well as in-house titles like Nintendo Land and New Super Mario Bros. U. The Nintendo Direct presentation also revealed previously unannounced upcoming software titles exclusive to Wii U, such as Capcom’s Monster Hunter 3™ Ultimate and BAYONETTA 2, developed by Platinum Games and published by Nintendo."

"The Wii U Basic Pack at the SRP AU $349.95* features a Wii U console with 8GB internal storage and a Wii U GamePad, both in white. The Wii U Premium Pack at the SRP AU $429.95* contains a black Wii U console and Wii U GamePad, and with 32GB of internal storage provides more space for downloadable digital content. The Premium Pack also contains a stand for the GamePad and console, a charging cradle for the GamePad, a sensor bar and the Nintendo Land software. Both packs also feature an HDMI cable and AC adapters for console and GamePad."

"The Wii U Premium Pack also features a reward programme called Nintendo Network Premium that grants points for digital purchases in Nintendo eShop. Valued at around 10% of the original Nintendo eShop price, this credit can be used against future purchases once you reach a minimum of 500 points**."

"Whether playing together or alone, Nintendo will deliver brand new entertainment experiences to the living room when Wii U launches in Australia and New Zealand on 30th November, 2012 at the SRP AU $349.95* for Wii U Basic Pack and SRP AU $429.95* for Wii U Premium Pack. "

This is actually way cheaper than I anticipated given the price of the console overseas!
