Wii U to launch by the end of the year

If you have been waiting for the next-generation console from Nintendo your wait will be over by the end of the year. Nintendo has announced they will be releasing the successor to the Wii by the holiday season of 2012. There is still quite a bit of time left before the Wii U launches but there are still a ton of questions surrounding it (as well as a ton of rumors). GamesBeat has the full (and short) announcement over here.

Nintendo will launch its Wii U video game console — the successor to the wildly successful but aging Nintendo Wii — in the U.S. and other key markets in time for the holiday shopping season later this year.

Nintendo chief executive Satoru Iwata told reporters in Japan that the Wii U would be launched by the end of the year in the U.S., Europe, Australia and Japan, according to Reuters.
