Nintendo has showcased the Wii U in two colors, black and white, but hasn’t confirmed whether both colors will be available at launch.

“It is our intention to convey a strong message this fall with the information about the price and the launch date and then to create momentum good enough to convince our consumers to buy (the Wii U.”
