No Wii U Price or Launch Date at E3 This Year
Every Nintendo fan wants to know exactly when the Wii U will be released and how much it will cost. Sadly Nintendo have stated that they will not be revealing the price and dates for the Wii U at this year’s E3.
“We will showcase the final format, and discuss the details and the software line-up for this year at E3 2012, which will be held in Los Angeles in the United States in June this year,” President Satoru Iwata told investors.
“Also, in the week after the E3 show, we would like to organise an opportunity where we can showcase the same to the Japanese wholesalers and financial analysts who cannot attend the E3 show. The people in our appropriate sections will let you know as soon as we have settled on further details.
“Please also be advised that, as we did for previous platforms that were launched in the year-end sales season, we will announce the launch date and price in each market sometime after E3.”
It looks like we won’t be able to gather any of this information until after early June, which is still some time away.
They did give us the heads up about the time of the release stating that the Wii U will be launched by the end of the year in Japan, Europe and North America.
Another piece of information was given out, stating that Wii U games will be available to download at the time of their release.
