The firm is also displaying noticeboards at its Montparnasse branch advertising the release date. Earlier this week, Video Product Distributors, the company which supplies Amazon and Blockbuster with stick, listed the console for a November 11 release. Nintendo is hosting a Wii U press event in New York City on September 13, and many feel a release date and price will be revealed at that time. Thanks, WeGotLife.

Nintendo will host a Wii U press event in New York City on September 13. The event is to be presented by Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime, with select media outlets today receiving invitations. The press event promises to reveal “more about how the Wii U will change the future of gaming and entertainment.” The last time Reggie hosted a press event in NYC was to announced the release date of 3DS, which was back in January 2011. Before that, the NYC venue was the Wii launch event. Still, we won’t know whether Nintendo will announce the release date for Wii U or not until the event occurs. Still, it’s best to keep your ears to the ground on it. Thanks, Kotaku.

If some leaked correspondence from a GameStop manager can be taken as truth, it looks as though Wii U may release on November 18. While not confirmed by any means, it would make a it of sense considering Nintendo’s penchant for Sunday release dates, as well as the fact the last two consoles also released in November. This new bit of information follows earlier rumors this week which had it pegged for November 19. Still keep this under your hat as a rumor for now until Nintendo announces a firm release date.
