The Wii U seemingly aims to fire the first salvo in the next generation console war a lot sooner than previously expected, according to a report placing its US release date on November 18th. European and Japanese release dates should follow no more than a week later, according to the Wii U Daily, where the story originated.
The information comes courtesy of an email circulated by an Japanese retailer Media Land, the name of which the publication refused to reveal “out of respect for the source”. November seems about par for the course and in line with Nintendo’s announced Fall 2012 release window.
