Nintendo has taken its time in revealing Wii U information, but the veil of secrecy has to be lifted at some point soon with the console due for release by the end of 2012. Initiate hype mode: we might get all those juicy launch details in a few weeks' time.

GamesIndustry International reports that Nintendo of America will be hosting a Wii U media event on 13th September. Nintendo of America president and all-round name taker Reggie Fils-Aime will be delivering a presentation about the system, but of course Nintendo is careful to reveal absolutely nothing more in the invitation.

GamesIndustry International received a media invite today for a special event. It reads, "Interested in learning more about how Wii U will change the future of gaming and entertainment? Join us for a presentation by Nintendo of America president and COO Reggie Fils-Aime followed by hands-on game play and demos."

With time zipping along, now could be a good time to blow that lid off once and for all. What are your hopes, dreams and expectations for a launch date and price?
