By on

Nintendo has revealed the release dates for the Wii U in North America and Europe, and like the Japan announcement, there will be two models – the Basic Set and the Deluxe Set. An Australian release date is expected to come out soon after the European Nintendo Direct.

The Wii U will be heading to the United States on November 18, with the Basic Set to be priced a US$299 and the Deluxe Set to be priced at US$349. For Europe, the company has said that it will be out on November 30, but the company has not released pricing due to individual pricing for each market.

For Japan, as a recap, the Wii U will be coming out on December 8 with the Basic Set costing 26,250 yen (or AU$322.20) and the Premium/Deluxe Set priced at 31,500 yen (or AU$386.65)

The Basic Set features a white Wii U with a Wii U GamePad and has 8GB of storage onboard. The Deluxe Set, however, has a black Wii U with 32GB of onboard storage. It also features a GamePad, but will have stands included.
