    1. Not for Japan though. So they can hold it a bit longer. This shouldn’t be worrying you at all, honestly. It was the same with the Wii.

      It’ll be out in November in America for sure.

    2. Will US accually get a system before Japan for once? Hopefully or hopefully the US date is very close. Thats super close to the holiday season, alot of parents do there shopping even before the month of dec. Hmmm

          1. i am not in the usa so i can worry about that.nintendo definetly release it at november in america but in europe it will be a little bit later.

              1. In this way, if rumors are confirmed, the first to receive the WiiU will be the US, since sources claim that Nintendo is planning to release it at some point around middle November (probably on the 11th) in order to take advantage of Black Friday (that will be on November 23th).

                But it sounds very strange, since Japan is usually the first to receive Nintendo’s releases.

                Are we about to see a tradition being broken?

                  1. I agree, if Nintendo doesn’t completely mess up the exchange rates like they did with the 3DS launch, day one buy for me along with Pikmin 3.

                5. I’m guessing a simulations global launch of December 8th now, that is the latest it could ever be to get a good amount of Christmas shoppers.
