According to blog WiiUDaily, Nintendo have set the 18th of November as the American release date for their next console.
The information apparently comes from an email the site has obtained from a Japanese retailer, although why a Japanese retailer would have the date for a US launch is slightly confusing.
“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,” the site claims, although it doesn’t show the email or offer any further details.
Some sites are running with this story as if it’s already proven to be true – I’d urge a little caution with this for the moment, even if everything checks out (including the Sunday release date).
I can’t find any other mention of this release date from any other source, including the Japanese sites I’d normally check.
The site also claims that GTA V is heading to the Wii U, via a “financial report”. I couldn’t find said financial report.
