Video game hardware maker Nintendo has announced that the Wii U home console will be launched in Europe on November 30 of this year.
The console comes in two versions, a Basic one that only delivers the required hardware and a Premium one which comes complete with a the subscription to the Nintendo Network service.
Nintendo has not offered pricing details for Europe and it seems that retailers will have more freedom when it comes to putting a price tag on the new device.
The Wii U arrives first in North America, on November 18, and Japan gets access to the new home console on December 8.
The staggered launch might be a sign that Nintendo currently lacks the production capabilities to make sure that all markets have enough consoles to satisfy demand.
The new console includes the core motion tracking elements of the normal Wii and introduces the GamePad with its touch screen capabilities.
