Wii U Coming To North America On November 18th According To Leaked GameStop Email

IGN has managed to get hold of a leaked correspondence from a GameStop manager which states that the Wii U will launch in North America on November 18th. You may remember that a leaked internal email from a large Japanese retailer had the launch penned for November 18th but the source for that was disputed by Kotaku. We should hear an official launch date for Wii U at this years E3 event in June.

  1. I can’t stop drooling. As much as I want to mark my calendar to November 18th, we’ll just have to wait for the next 2 months for the ultimate A-Bomb at E3.

      1. Actually Nintendo is gonna drop the A-Bomb on the Wii U at E3… the waves will be felt around the world when they reveal their games with much better graphics.

      2. @Winscar_Shinobi: I don’t think A bomb imagery bothers the Japanese much. Just watch any of their anime. Lots of A bomb like explosions.

      3. Dude, that’s like over 60 years ago. At this point, Japan has been dropping metaphysical A-bombs in their anime for the last four decades or so. Political correctness fail.

      1. LOL. I still remember what time E3 started in my local time, It started about 5:00PM where I live. And I loved the E3 11 intro with Zelda 25th ;)

        And I remember the part where they showed all the games and features.

  2. LOL EPIC FAIL SICKR XD
    first kid Icarus in April
    now e3 in November?
    whats next?
    Paper Mario in 2013?

  3. Saw that yesterday but from the sound of it, whoever wrote that is just going by the rumoured release date reported previously

  4. So, let me get this straight. Someone at Nintendo is sending emails to GameStop to announce the official release date two months before E3, for a release in November; as if there is not going to be enough time to set up retail distribution and advertisement in the 5 months wafterward. Why does this seem completely illegitimate to me?

  5. You accidentally wrote that the E3 event is in November you must have gotten confused it is actually in June precisely on 5 ofJune

  6. I think the majority of these retailers are merely guessing this will be the date since they believe Nintendo will follow their trend with consoles. Then people start taking the dates as real. In reality, this date is most likely gonna be the correct one.

  7. I HATE THE RUMORS THAT AT THE END MAKE EVERY ONE THAT ALL THAT WE READ IS A FAKE.NO BODY ECEPT NINTENDO KNOW WHEN THE MACHINE ARE READY TO MARKET AND WHAT ARE INSIDE THE MACHINE. THE SUPOSED RUMORS ARE THE SAME THAT THIS PEOPLES THAT SAID WORLD END IN 2012 JAJAJAJA IN OTHER WORLDS WE MAY NEVER BUY A WII JAJAJAJAJHOW PEOPLES KNOW IF WE ARE UNDERPOWER OS PSP OR 360 IF THE MACHINE DONT YET RELEASED, AND WHAT THER PEOPLES DONT SAID YOUR NAME AND HIDE IN THE DARK TO SAID “RUMORS”. IF THE RUMORS ARE TRUE ITS NO REASON FOR PS3 BECAUSE SONY CLAIM THAT PS2 CAN PUSH 33 TO 66 MILIONS POLIS PER SECOND AND TELL MI WHAT GAME FOR PS2 USE THIS AND ALSO CLAIM RESOLUTIONS SUPERIOR TO 1024 X 768? WHICH GAME USE THESE POWER FROM PS2??? RUMORS AND EXTREMELY INFLATED SPECS , LIERS
