The Wii U hasn't been seen since E3 in June, but according to CNET it's about to get a run-out at the Consumer Electronics Show in January.

CNET claims Nintendo is taking the Wii U to CES in January, though the CES website doesn't list Nintendo as an exhibitor. Last year Nintendo held meetings at CES but didn't have any public presence, and we'd be surprised if Nintendo decided to take the console out to the public five months before its president Satoru Iwata is due to reveal the final Wii U form.

CES runs from 10th to 13th January 2012.
