Not long to wait now!

The launch date for Nintendo’s upcoming Wii U console looks set to be 18th November for North America, if rumours are to be believed.

During a presentation at the GameStop managers’ conference in Texas the Wii U launch date was leaked by an employee of PDP, who make gaming accessories. PDP’s community manager went into damage control mode, however, and later denied knowledge of the exact launch date.

It’s likely that we will not know the Wii U’s launch date for certain until Nintendo’s press event in New York on the 13th September. Your friendly neighbourhood Nintendo Life will be attending, so stay tuned for more news at that time.

Until then feel free to speculate, does a November 18 launch seem likely to you?
