The Wii U will be released just in time for Christmas, according to an Amazon Germany listing which is not surprising since there is always a hype at Christmas time for new technology.
Nintendo‘s new platform will reportedly launch on December 21, costing €399 which is approximately £322/$506. The same date is given for launch titles Zombi U and Rayman Legends, both of which are priced at €69.99 – approximately £56/$88.
The console has previously been rumored for a November release: firstly by Ubisoft at the E3 Gaming Expo, and secondly through a leaked Black Ops 2 listing but only time will tell. Since this has not been confirmed by Nintendo themselves expect this to change any time soon.
Amazon.co.uk claims that their Wii U price of £199.99 was a mistake and has canceled all pre-orders of Nintendo’s upcoming console. Currently, the online retailer doesn’t accept any Wii U pre-orders. If you are interested in purchasing a Wii U from Amazon, sign up hereto receive a notification about when you can pre-order the console.

It probably comes as no surprise that Wii U will launch with a Mario game in the form of Super Mario Bros. U.
