Nintendo World NYC Set To Host Wii U Midnight Launch
Nintendo have confirmed that they will be launching the Wii U at midnight at the Nintendo World Store in New York! The fun and games will begin on the 17th November at 6pm so if you’re in the area make sure you head on down to count down the launch of Nintendo’s shiny new console!
Of course it wouldn’t be a party without Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime in attendance! He’ll be there to count down to the launch with avid fans and will be on hand to sell the very first Wii U console on planet earth! Exciting stuff! Will it be Isaiah Triforce Johnson again? It seems not even Hurricane Sandy could deter him so I’d be surprised if it isn’t him shaking Reggie’s hand for the obligatory photo opportunity.
Speaking of Hurricane Sandy, Nintendo will be giving away goodies to those in line and selling New York-themed Mario T-shirts, proceeds of which will all be heading to the American Red Cross who’ve been doing an amazing job in helping the city recover from the horrific weather incident.
There will be two Wii U packs on offer at launch: the Basic Set in white for $299.99, and the Deluxe Set in black with more storage capacity, additional accessories, online bonuses and Nintendo Land for $349.99.
Will you be at the event? Tell Reggie we said hi!
