Today Nintendo announced the Wii U release date in North America will be November 18, starting at $299.99 USD. The console will come in two flavors, the first being a Basic console which will include a white, 8GB Wii U console, gamepad, power cords, sensor bar, and a HDMI cable. The next available bundle will be dubbed the Deluxe Edition. The Deluxe Edition will set you back $349.99 USD, and will come with everything the Basic console comes with, in black, and a upgrade to a 32GB console. Also included will be charging cradles, and a copy of Nintendoland. If that’s not enough, the Deluxe will also include access to the Deluxe Digital Promotion which will let online shoppers earn rebates for downloadable Wii U titles.
Another big announcement today was that Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, will be coming to the Wii U console. Seems they are trying very hard to get big third party support now that they are finally in the HD era. Welcome Nintendo.
