Nintendo has announced that tomorrow night, at 12 midnight, it will broadcast another episode of Nintendo Direct and take a "closer look at the Wii U". Considering previous rumours, we're hoping that we'll finally get an official price and release date for the console.
We've also just had confirmation from Nintendo Australia that it will be updating its local site on the go with all the relevant local information -- so we're hoping that we'll be getting our release date and pricing info at (roughly) the same time as the rest of the world.
Usually Australians have to wait for such info, so it's pretty exciting to hear we'll actually be informed this time round, as opposed to scrambling for info weeks after the US and Europe have their dates.
Three weeks ago, an anonymous source informed us that Nintendo was planning to release the Wii U on December 6, which makes sense considering previous console launches in this country. I'd say this still holds true, but we'll find out for sure tomorrow night.
