Wii U release date announcement set for September 13th

Nintendo invites press to New York Wii U event

Nintendo is to host a Wii U-focused press event in New York City on September 13.


The platform holder has sent out invites to press for the event on that date, when it promises to reveal "more about how the Wii U will change the future of gaming and entertainment."

Games site Kotaku claims that the event will reveal both the Wii U release date and launch price.

The 3DS and the Wii before it were both given US launch dates and confirmed software line-ups at similar NYC events held shortly before each machine's launch.
