Rumor: Wii U Launch Date Leaked?

According to an internal e-mail from a popular Japanese retailer, Nintendo have set a North American release date for the Wii U at November 18, almost identical to the November 19 release date of the original Wii six years ago, which was also a Sunday.

The report comes from an internal email obtained by WiiUDaily. The email circulated among staff at a game store in Japan, the Akihabara-based Media Land, one of the most popular video game shops in Tokyo. Nintendo previously confirmed that the Wii U launch would happen in Fall 2012, but no specifics were revealed. November is the most important month when it comes to gaming releases — almost all major consoles over the past 10 years have been released during that time, and likewise when it comes to big titles.

It’s unknown if this is a goal release date or if it’s a committed release date, but either way, my calendar is marked for November 18th.
