GameStop is listing most Wii U games with a tentative release date of December 31st. Based on the retailer’s website, the Wii U versions of two games – Rise of the Guardians and Ben 10 Omniverse – will launch on November 13th. It was rumored that Nintendo’s forthcoming console will be released in time for Black Friday, which is the 23rd of November, so perhaps the Wii U will launch during the first half of the month.
Me hope so :D
works for me
I really hope this is true… but an earlier date would be better.
Get N or get OUT!!!!
No fucking way. They didn’t even START Marketing for something worth $400, why would they release it like a month after starting the marketing campaign? Think.
Nintendo is not big on releasing consoles on Tuesdays. Maybe though
I noticed that, but didn’t think about it. 2 of the games had that date instead of the holiday or Dec placeholders that the majority had.
The sooner, the better.
The sooner the better
I can’t wait !! xD
DAMN! The last rumor I’ve read was the Wii U’s launch date is Black Friday. I’m sure President Iwata or The Regginator will vacuum that rumor when they announce it next month.
The WiiU will NOT launch on Black Friday. That would be idiotic. Nintendo themselves months ago narrowed it down to “before black friday”.
I told them many times before about it.
they also have luigis mansion 2 listed as a 6th of january… so what?
Get it together Alba, they put December 31th, when the release date for a game is un- confirmed.
November 13th? A good date.
WRONG! It’s so false, this information probably came from an unreliable source. NINTENDO HAS NOT EVEN ANNOUNCED THE RELEASE DATE FOR THE WII U YET. AND THE HOLLIDAY SEASON ISN’T ANY EARLIER THAN THANKSGIVING.
yeah…that “unreliable source” is http://www.gamestop.com
So many idiots and fanboys on this site.
*probably the 5th time I said that -_- *
That’s why they put a question mark at the end of the title. -_-
its a rumor
It’s going to be like the Vita, where they released games before they released the system. The system will release on November 18th in North America.
That’s good. At least now we have a more definite fix on when it’ll be released.
That would be Awesome November 12, 2012 is my birthday I turn 16 Years Old that would be a Awesome Birthday Present! :D
Same! 5 years older though ;)
Bop Bop Bop!!!Nov. 16th is my B-day and I turn 18!!! So I really am hoping it comes out in November like… around my birthday so I can get one really awesome present!!! Bash Bump Blamm!!!
it is not my 45th birthday till dah 14th nov.
Sounds good to me, just under 3 months away, will probably be able to get a 3DS before hand too
nintendo, no, just no, don’t try and relase it too soon the 18th is fine.
That would be cool. I can’t wait for the next Nintendo Direct. Leave luck to heaven.
Holy shit. Enough with the rumors. ZOMG Wii U MIGHT RELEASE 4 BLACK FRIDAY. NO WAI, IT MIGHT BE OUT A FEW WEEKS EARLIER. Is it really hard to wait until we get an actual date? We’ll know the real date before November anyway, sheesh.
Sum of us cant wait till next month BECAUSE WE HAVE BEEN WAITING FROM E3 2011
Yeah, we’ve all been waiting. Another couple of months is no big deal to me.
Wow, what a bitch. Don’t come to a news website and not expect rumors.
Sorry for coming to a news site expecting a little more than just speculation. Besides, it’s not like figuring out the release date is going to make it come out any faster, and you have no way of knowing if you’re right until Nintendo gives an official date. I just don’t see the point.
JUST TELL ME THE PRICE ALREADY NINTENDO, IM SO TIRED JUST TELL ME ALREADY!
This is extremely likely.
BO2 releases that day
This is a very interesting rumor, but MAN does that movie look shitty.
He’s referring to the picture in the tittle of the article. It belongs to the movie “Legend of the Guardians”.
lol, Im sorry, I meant “Rise of the Guardians”.
By everything we have heard in the past months i think the Wii U will launch between November 13th and the 21st in Japan,America and Europe and in Australia and the rest of the world between te 21st of November and December 6th just think about it
I think Japan will get it earlier than North America, like the 3ds. So either Japan gets it November and we get in december or they get in october and we get in novmeber
Bing Bang Bop! OooooOoooo goody! I hope I can get my hands on the Wii U in November! Boppity Bip Blap!
Poo… I won’t have ANY money until CHRISTMAS so I will just have to be the person who gets the “awesome new console” later and say “OMG I GOT A WII U!” 2 months later than everyone else and look like a total newb.
This is looking to be one of the best launches in the past few generations
not gonna work , becuase paper mario sticker star comes out november 11 ( a sunday) if it cam eout before the 13 th it wold have to be november 4 and the wii u sales will just hurt paper mario, so i say the 18th is highly likely but i can be wrong
I know when it’s being released…. I’m just not allowed to say.
Doubtful. However, some 3rd party games will ship to stores before launch. I’m sticking with Sunday, November 18th date. That seems more in line with past launches. Question is will the games be for sale or remain hidden in back rooms till launch.

Seems legit to me
I called this I said 11th or 18th (both Sundays) Those two games arent 1st parties so it’s definately possible to lauch the Tuesday after (which may only be 2 days from what we’re seeing here) My body is READY!
