We’re only a few hours away from a big Nintendo Direct presentation, in which President Satoru Iwata will be revealing the Wii U launch details that we’ve all been waiting for, which will include the pricing information and the much awaited release date.
While the announcement is scheduled at 3 am ET in Japan, Nintendo’s North American President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime has released a video message of his own, stating that the US Wii U Preview event is scheduled to air around the same day as Japan’s, at 10 AM ET and 7 AM PT.
Reggie Fils-Aime’s video message features the two Nintendo mascots Mario and Luigi at his side, looking really damn huge (perhaps they are toked up on Mega Mushrooms?). The North American Wii U event itself will be held in New York City tomorrow, and while Fils-Aime did not reveal what it is they’re going to reveal, it’s safe to say that it will be in line with the Japanese presentation. The Nintendo Direct event for Europe is scheduled at around the same time.
