During a Wii U event this morning, Nintendo finally gave the public the answers to the two most common questions regarding the Wii U, “How much will it cost?”, and “Just when will the system come out?”.
Nintendo announced two Wii U bundles, both coming out in North America on Sunday, November 18, 2012…just 66 days from now.
The first Wii U bundle, “The Basic Set”, includes a white Wii U system, white Wii U GamePad, 8GB of memory, HDMI cable, Wii U sensor bar, and AC adapter. The Basic Set will cost $299.99.
The second Wii U bundle, “The Deluxe Set”, includes a black Wii U system, black Wii U GamePad, 32GB of memory, HDMI cable, Wii U sensor bar, GamePad charging cradle, GamePad stand, Wii U console stand, AC adapter, and a copy of the Wii U launch game Nintendo Land. The Deluxe set will cost $349.99.
As of today, Amazon.com does not have either Wii U bundle available to pre-order on their website.
An interesting tidbit to note, the Wii U will launch in North America (November 18) before it launches in Japan (December 8).
