The report comes from an internal email obtained by WiiUDaily. The email circulated among staff at a game store in Japan, the Akihabara-based Media Land, one of the most popular video game shops in Tokyo. Nintendo previously confirmed that the Wii U launch would happen in Fall 2012, but no specifics were revealed. November is the most important month when it comes to gaming releases — almost all major consoles over the past 10 years have been released during that time, and likewise when it comes to big titles.

    Interesting… I’ve been to Akihabara in Tokyo when I was in Year 9! Nintendo of Japan’s gaming range is massive and incredible swarming full of JRPGs and more! To be told, Japan always have the latest in gaming and more for Nintendo, and of course I have seen a Arcade game of Mario Kart and I played it!

    The release date for the Wii U is a good choice as it gives us a chance to get Pandora’s Tower localised to you guys and some others in case. Who knows. All we need to do is to ensure that we buy these games! The Wii U looks like a Ipad mixed with an Android phone… lol
