Wii U EuropeWith the announcement of the North American Wii U release date, Nintendo’s European outfit has revealed that the console launches in Europe on November 30, 2012. Just like in Japan and the US, the console will launch with two models, a base model and a premium one. The base will include everything needed to play, while the Premium will up the internal flash storage to 32 GB and include some accessories to the controller and console. Just like in North America, the European Premium model will include a copy of Nintendo Land. Pricing is yet to be revealed, but it’ll likely be very close to the US price points. The console will launch with ZombiU, Rayman Legends, New Super Mario Bros. U, and other games.

        Why do you always reply to the first comment? It’s ok to like Nintendo and even send lots oc comments to Wii U daily but I think people sometimes get angry with you because you leach to the first comment.

        • Nintedward

        Back in the day it would take 6 months after Japan for the U.S. get a system.

  • Mark

    Thanks 🙂 im watching the stream and they didnt announce i was disappointed as hell 😛

  • Lazyboy88

    Yes! Before the Japanese, that’s awesome,
    Don’t get me wrong, I like the Japs but I think we
    Deserve to get the new console first this time xD

    • zam

      its the same week as japan idiot

      • Lazyboy88

        Still before them.. hope you feel better xD

  • bob

    i want a basic black one for £250

    • Paul

      lets wait and see what happens with the online and instore prices

      black one seems more expensive and why did they say the online preminem is till 2014 ??

      • Christopher

        It means that Nintendo Network Premium won’t be available to the public until 2014, unless you get the Premium Wii U bundle.

        Also, it doesn’t mean you have to pay for the online, its still for free. The NNP thing is just like Playstation Plus.

  • Paul

    just watched it and even though the games we already new about, i may not buy it since theres no launch of blackops 2 but if the price is right who knows


    Just watched the stream. Brilliant news and blows those rumours of malfunctioning issues right out of the water. Can’t believe we getting it in November 🙂

  • Russell

    I was looking to pre-order on Amazon UK and they had the white version at £199.99 – no price on black. Then it ‘vanished’ from the website… this was about an hour ago…

  • Mikey

    Bayonetta 2 exclusive to wiiu!!!!! F**k yeah!!. I´m sold!!!

  • GoodNintentions

    Black ops 2 was confirmed on us version


    • Christopher

      Europe also.

    • nintendoododo

      why are you talking about shitty usa in europe website?

      • GoodNintentions

        I meant on the us stream, I was trying to watch both but i thought the EU one was better. The Engrish accent added credibility

        I know it was a no brainer but i am so relieved to see CoD including dual screen coop. I was expecting just loads of buttons mapped to the touchscreen.

        I didn’t hear if wii pointer controls were available. Does anyone know?

        My wii classic controller had better work if there is no wiimote controls as it seems to have the exact same button configuration as the wiiu classic pro.

  • Nintendofan

    Europe will also get ZombiU Premium Bundle! How cool is that! Way better than Nintendo Land!

  • Christopher

    I can’t wait, I also can’t wait to see what the Americans think of the console and we’ll probably get a lot of lets plays =3

  • Grodus

    I expected as much. Hmmm… I’m american anyway, but I though it would be late Nov. – mid Dec. over in europe. Cool. Also stuck with the Nov. 18 rumor. Japan’s threw me for a loop though. My prediction was early – mid Nov. there. I thought that was crazy!

  • Derp

    I’m glad about Nintendo Land bundled 😀

  • wtf

    pre ordered biatch

  • Geoffrey

    GAME is displaying the consoles at £250 and £310. They’re kidding right?

    • NinKevdo

      Probably not. The big A are pre-ordering for £250 and £299. What I always hate is…$299 for a Basic in the US is say about £187 so why are we paying £250 again? duh. The UK prices still aren’t fixed tho, so we shall see. Still want a premium pack please!!!

  • Unlucky European Gamer

    US Premium price: 350 dollars. Japan Premium price:384 dollars. European Union Premium price:454 dollars. Great Britain Premium price:484 dollars.


    It’s not fair to have to pay so much more money than Americans for the same product just because I live in a different country,that’s outrageous. 🙁

    • Lazyboy88

      Where did you get the price for europe? I haven’t seen the price anywhere, only on the internet and i believe they are still guessing..


    Game has always been expensive. The price should drop though as they compete for our money 🙂

  • Jake

    They will be 99% identical. The US models will output a NTSC signal. European ones will output a PAL signal. The two don’t use the same televison system.

  • Thatguywhoslappedyou


    • nintendoododo

      why americans comes here? Go fuck yourselves stupid americans.

  • lobo

    The basic Wii U in the UK is £249 at current exchange rate $403 , 100 dollars more than they will pay in the US

    The black wii U in the UK we pay £300 , at current exchange rate $483

    Thats a whooping $ 134 more than the US

    not happy
