Nintendo Announces North American Launch Details For Wii U

Nintendo has revealed that the Wii U will launch on Sunday, November 18th in North America. The console will launch with two different bundle options—much like in Japan. The basic option, which will retail for $299 comes with a white console, GamePad, AC adaptor, sensor bar and HDMI cable.

The premium option ($349) includes a black console, console stand, GamePad cradle, a larger hard drive, NintendoLand and everything included in the basic bundle.

In addition, the company revealed that New Super Mario Bros. U will be available on launch day.
