During today’s Wii U Preview Event, full launch details were confirmed for the North American region. So first up, you want to know when you can purchase the console right? Well the Wii U will be available starting on November 18th, 2012. That’s exactly what my prediction said. Damn I’m good!
There will be two SKUs available, just like in Japan. The Basic Set comes with the console with 8GB of storage, GamePad, A/C adapter, the sensor bar, and an HDMI cable. Everything is white. The Deluxe Set includes everything in the basic set albeit in black, 32GB of storage space, and a stand for the GamePad and Console. It also include Nintendoland. The basic model is $299.99, the deluxe set is $349.99.
