Nintendo just dropped as an email to tell us about the UK launch of the Nintendo Wii U, the device will debut in the UK ate the HMV Store in London’s Oxford Street and the device will be available from 12.01 AM from Friday the 30th of November.
With much of the UK’s stock of Wii U consoles in high demand through pre orders, hmv have channeled extra stock into its flagship store so that customers will be able to purchase their Wii U on the night, so a large turnout of enthusiastic gamers are expected to attend when the doors open at 11.00pm on Thursday night, 29th November.
Additionally, the first 100 customers queuing to attend the event will be entitled to a free copy of New Super Mario Bros U as well as another Wii U game of their choice from a selection that will be offered. The next 100 people in line will be entitled to a £5 gift voucher for redemption on the night. *NB This voucher will only be valid against Wii U hardware and software. The first 500 people in the queue will receive a Wii U goody bag and there will also be opportunities to win Wii U related prizes during the evening.
Demand for the Nintendo Wii U Console has been high in the US, it sold out withi the first couple of days, and we suspect the same thing may happen here in the UK.
