Sources have indicated to CVG that the Wii U is being positioned to release sometime around the Thanksgiving holiday season. At least it was in Europe until the manufacturer ran into some “key issues” with the new Wii U Gamepad. There was even some concern in July that the console might slip into 2013, but it appears that issue has been resolved.
With the holiday shopping season being one of the more lucrative times a year, it seems like no surprise that Nintendo is determined to make the deadline. Hopefully we will know more regarding the Wii U and its release date in the coming month. For now, Nintendo has declined to comment. Any g1s in Europe disappointed that the Wii U may no longer see a simultaneous worldwide launch?
