Nintendo will host a live Wii U event on September 13 in New York, and while it’s been confirmed that there won’t be a live event in Europe, there are some good news for Europeans. Nintendo just announced that a Nintendo Direct Wii U preview show will air on September 13 at 3 PM (UK time). It will feature Nintendo president Satoru Iwata, who will preview and show off the Wii U for the audience. It’s also expected that we’ll get the European Wii U price and launch date during this time.
Nintendo hasn’t forgotten about those living down under: a Nintendo Direct Wii U preview has been announced for Australia and New Zealand, and will air on September 13th at 24:00 (midnight) AEST. It will coincide with the UK and the New York events. So it appears that Nintendo has coordinated the whole thing for a complete Wii U news blowout. We expect the company to reveal the Wii U price, launch date, games lineup, and there’s even a chance that we might get a surprise or two. You will be able to watch the events on nintendo.com (even if you’re not in Europe or Australia).
