The new Nintendo console, the WiiU, made its big launch announcements yesterday, placing its release date as November 18, 2012. It’ll retail around $300-$350, depending on what package you want, and there will be a big number of games coming out for it immediately following its launch. Some of these, like Batman: Arkham City, are pretty late for a new console, but the Nintendo-brand games look cool, and it’s nice to see a new Sonic game. I dunno, I’m far less excited about this than I was for the Wii, but I know I’ll end up playing around with one of these at some point. It’s just inevitable with Nintendo stuff.
