Nintendohas confirmed that Nintendo will be revealing the final format and software lineups for the Wii U at E3 this year, however, the announcement for the system’s prices and release dates will be made after the event.
“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,” said a Nintendo executive.
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’s supposed to release in all regions before Christmas, so Nintendo should ideally announce the price by August or September.
Stay tuned, we’ll keep you updated.
