Nintendo WiiU Available On November 18th

Thanks to Engadget, the Nintendo WiiU will be out on Sunday, November 18th of this year.

It’ll arrive in Europe on November 30, though no price was given for our friends abroad. LikeĀ its Japanese release, the console comes in two varieties: a base level bundle in white with just 8GB of internal memory for $300 and a premium bundle in black with 32GB of internal memory for $350.

Each version contains the console itself, a WiiPad, a charging stand, a play stand, and a stand for the console. The premium version, however, adds a subscription to Nintendo’s Premium Network, which offers various rewards for digital purchases — it also gets a full 32GB of internal memory, which is a pretty major step up over the 8GB model. It’s hard to imagine either having enough internal storage compared with current-gen consoles, but the Wii U’s memory is expandable via USB.

Check out a video of the WiiU for a refresher:
