The Regginator just confirmed that the US launch date for the Wii U is actually BEFORE Japan’s. We will get the deluxe and basic packages on November 18, 2012. That’s crazy. I don’t think anyone was expecting that. The prices have also been confirmed. The base set, with 8GB of storage will be priced at $299.99, while the Deluxe set price, with 32GB of storage, a copy of NintendoLand and the Wii U’s premium online service will be $349.99.
Each package will include the console, GamePad controller, AC adapter AND an HDMI cable. Holy cow! Modern connectivity!
