American Wii U Press Event: September 13

American Wii U Press Event: September 13 on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Next month Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime will be taking the stage to reveal more details on the upcoming Wii U launch.

On September 13th the world's attention will be focused on New York City, where Fils-Aime will be discussing "how the Wii U will change the future of gaming and entertainment". Presumably a firm launch date, possible retail price and day one titles will be mentioned - though Nintendo haven't yet gone into any specifics.

Similar events were held for the Nintendo 3DS and original Wii in New York, so it's highly likely for a dose of the same.

Cool, looking forward to this, it's make or break given the reaction so far.

Be careful, it's a beautiful but very dangerous city, not quite Palermo, but close enough.

ones that people will be able to play with their hands on a tv

How about they show the specs of the machine, everyone wants to know them (vs. xbox 360 and ps3)!

Ok.... predictions?

-I say $300/€300.
-Upad included (ofc), no additional controllers (Pro or Wiimote).
-In time for Thanksgiving, whenever that is (when is it?).
- 3 Nintendo launch games, 12 more 3rd party titles.
- 2 more Nintendo and 20 3rd party titles in the months after.

Sounds good, except they already announced there will be 23 launch titles I thought (11 first party, 12 third).

First two I think are spot on. I'm starting to wonder if Nintendo is going to make the Thanksgiving window, though (22 November). I'm thinking first week of December, though I know they want to be to market by Black Friday. I also am not sure Nintendo will have 3 launch games ready, since they've said Pikmin is "launch window" and not a launch title. Unless they start throwing together some Steel Diver like stuff.

New Super Mario U, Wii Fit U, Nintendo Land.

Fair enough - though a bit depressing..

I really don't know if I'm going to get this any time soon. At least the Wii had some must-haves (Sports and Zelda).

Oh, I hope Nintendo release some new eShop games. Also, I might get some WiiWare games that I didn't get for Wii... They should be good fun on the Upad.
