Wii U Price Coming After E3, Digital Releases Start Soon


Posted April 27, 2012 - By Adam Rosenberg

Nintendo's New Console Is Called The Wii U

The price of Nintendo's Wii U won't be revealed until sometime after E3, a newly released financial report from console maker confirms. Don't expect to hear anything official about the price or the release date until later on in summer 2012 (most likely). The smart money is on a late fall launch for the Wii U, because that's just how these things tend to work.

In addition, the report confirms that Nintendo plans to beef up its digital distribution offerings with downloadable versions of major retail releases launching day and date with one another, at least for first-party titles. This new era will begin in August 2012 with the release of New Super Mario Bros 2 for the 3DS. This new day-and-date retail/digital release strategy will also extend to the Wii U once it launches.
