Boston (ChatterShmatter) – Nintendo is busy gearing up for the upcoming release of their next-generation Nintendo Wii U platform. All indications from reports thus far are pointing to a release date that may seem pretty obvious to many.
Nintendo is pushing to release the Nintendo Wii U for this upcoming holiday season around the world.
To truly take advantage of the holiday shopping season in the U.S. though, Nintendo is going to have to push to get the Nintendo Wii U on store shelves before the big Black Friday shopping day, the day after Thanksgiving in the U.S.
This means that Nintendo will likely launch the Nintendo Wii U on Sunday, November 18th.
This date would fit well as Nintendo would be able to get the first shipments of the Wii U sold out, and get a second shipment of consoles to store shelves by the time Black Friday rolled around.
For those of us who remember the original Nintendo Wii launch, this was a very similar strategy, with the only catch being that Nintendo had a very difficult time keeping up with the demand.
All signs up to this point show Nintendo gearing up for a release in the U.S. during that week, with a price point that has still yet to be determined by the company.
What do you think readers, will Nintendo be able to successfully launch the Wii U in time for the big Black Friday shopping day in the U.S.?
