Nintendo previously confirmed that the Wii U price and launch date will be announced in September. Now the company revealed via a statement that they plan to unveil one more thing: Wii U colors. So far the console has been shown in two “colors”, black and white. It’s been rumored that both the black and white Wii U would be available at launch, with the black version possibly being a higher end model. It’s likely that Nintendo will reveal different Wii U models when the price and launch date become official. Alternately, the company could simply keep things simple and offer a single model in two different colors, or add a new color down the line to increase sales. In addition to price, launch date, and colors, Nintendo will also reveal the bundled accessories and what’s included with the Wii U package. The event will likely be a another “Nintendo Direct” video featuring company president Satoru Iwata at their offices in Kyoto.
