The Wii U will launch in time for the holidays


Nintendo held their quarterly investor relations meeting this morning, during which Iwata revealed that the Wii U would launch worldwide just in time for the so-called holiday rush – the weeks leading up to Christmas during which potential consumers are most likely to lay down the cash for big-ticket electronics.

This isn’t a major change from the currently known release window of June through the end of 2012, but it does sound like we’ll be getting the console later rather than sooner.
