Further evidence has emerged pointing to a November 18 US Wii U release date.
Earlier this week an internal memo reportedly leaked from a popular video games retailer in Tokyo suggested Nintendo was targeting that date to launch its new console, and a similar email sent by a regional manager at US retail giant GameStop has now cropped up too.IGN posted a photo of it, and while not conclusive, the site also pointed out that GameCube released on November 18 and Wii released on November 19.
Nintendo president Satoru Iwata said in January that Wii U will be available in the US, Japan and Europe by the end of 2012.
This week development sources told CVG that Wii U games look "just as good" as Xbox 360 and PS3 titles, but that Nintendo's console still struggles to match its rivals when it comes to processor intensive game systems such as complicated physics and AI.
