September 13, 2012, 1:42 PM — The news just keeps on coming for tech geeks - Nintendo today announced the official release date for the Wii U gaming system.
The game system will cost $299.99 and be available for purchase in the U.S. on Sunday, Nov. 18. Here's the company's "sizzlea reel" that shows all of the different games that will be either available on launch day, or in the pretty large "launch window" (defined as between Nov. 18 through March 31, 2013).
If you really want to go Wii U crazy, check out all of Nintendo's Wii U videos on YouTube, which give extended trailers for many of the Wii U games.
It's a pretty impressive list of games, although I'm wondering how many will be available on Day 1 vs. the end of March next year.
The company also posted this video, showing off its TVii app, which will let you use the Wii U controller to control your TV and watch some Internet TV streaming video. This looks pretty cool, too.
So, will you be going out to get one of these systems on Nov. 18?
