[Rumor] Wii U is coming to America, before Japan?!

4/3/12 2:00pm
tl;dr

NA launch date "set" for November 18th, with Japan getting it a week later.

Acording to an e-mail that Wii U Daily had access to, the Nintendo Wii U should see the light of day in stores across North America on November 18th, with Japan getting the console about a week later.

The e-mail seems to come from Akihabara-based Media Land, a very popular video game shop in Tokyo, and it seems it circulated the store's staff. Of course, this report does not confirm that Nintendo already has the date set in stone and, of course, only by E3 can we have official confirmation.

It should be noted that Nintendo has picked the date of their home console launches for the last few generations around this date (in NA), with the Gamecube being released on the same day 11 years ago and the Wii on November 19th 2006 so it wouldn't a big surprise if this date was confirmed to be the official one.
