The Wii U Will Be Out By Christmas In Australia

While there’s still scope for slight delays, Nintendo has tonight eased fears of a drastically staggered release of the Wii U by confirming the new console will be out in all four major territories by Christmas.

Nintendo boss Satoru Iwata has told Reuters that the Wii U would be out in the US, Europe, Japan and Australia “for the year-end season”.

While we knew the console would be out somewhere in 2012, this will be good news to Europeans and Aussies used to/fearing a 2013 release.
