Wii U queue starts in Manhattan

Isaiah-Triforce Johnson, who was the first person in the US to buy a Wii and 3DS, has started queueing up to repeat this feat with the Wii U, nearly a month ahead of its November 18 launch. Johnson has set up camp outside Nintendo World in Manhattan and is tweeting from the scene. The quasi-celebrity gamer runs a digital culture company and has even worked with Nintendo on some promotions, so he’s unlikely to be moved on before he earns a third Reggie Fils-Aime happy snap for his collection. The Wii U arrives in Europe later in November and finally drops in Japan in December.
