Posted By | On 13th, Sep. 2012

Nintendo has announced the release date and pricing for the Wii U in the US, and it will cost $300 for the basic set and $350 for the deluxe set. Earlier we knew about the Japanese pricing as well, which was 26000 yen for the basic set and 32000 yen for the deluxe set.

The gamepad will cost $150 apparently, which was expected after the Japanese pricing. The console will launch on November 18th in the US, just in time for the Call of Duty Black Ops 2 launch which will hit the Wii U as well.

There are a lot of games announced for the system and all the Wii motes people have so far will work on the Wii U. Reggie bragged about selling 100 million Wii motes which will be usable with the Wii U along with all the games so far.
