Following hot on the heels of Apple’s iPhone 5 extravaganza on Wednesday, Nintendo and everyone’s favorite name-taker, NOA President Reggie Fils-Aime, hosted a special event of their own on Thursday in New York City. The matter at hand: show off the Wii U and its games, and lift the veil on the the next-gen home game console’s release date and retail price.
Gamers can now mark November 18 on the calendar, and set aside either $299 or $349 for the Wii U’s Basic and Deluxe Sets, respectively. More information about what each set includes can be found in Anthony LaBella’s earlier report.
What you see below is a gallery of photos of the event, snapped by yours truly and my one-and-a-half arms, post shoulder surgery (love me; I do it all for YOU). These shots primarily highlight the myriad of games scheduled for release during the Wii U’s long (November-March) “launch window,” all of which were playable by members of the press following the live-streamed conference.
