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.

Developer Talks MMORPGs on Wii U 

Funcom developer Joel Bylos believes that the “Wii U could be the first real console on which running an MMORPG without compromise is plausible”: 

“Wii U could be the first real console on which running an MMORPG without compromise is plausible. The controller is perfect for lining up those rows of hotbars that are essential in most MMOs. A customisable touchscreen interface combined with the 3D spatial movement of a console controller could be a winner.”

Sounds like a plan to me! :D
