WC writes: Yesterday, Nintendo announced to the world that the Wii U will be shipping in North America on November 18th, Europe on November 30th, and Japan on December 8th. They also announced a two tier pricing structure. The “standard” edition will retail for $299 and the “deluxe” edition will run for $349.
As with any console launch though, your decision to purchase comes down to one thing… the software. This list compiles five “launch” games that we think will be essential when it comes to your decision to buy a Nintendo Wii U this holiday season.
