Wii U release date, price won’t be announced until 2012

Nintendo has published the investor’s Q&A that accompanied their quarterly financial report in July. Most of the Q&A relates to the 3DS and its recent price drop, but Nintendo President Satoru Iwata also confirmed that the price and release date of the Wii U won’t be announced until 2012:

“Since the Wii U we showed you at the E3 show in June was still in the development phase without very specific proposals on the software titles, we are going to announce the release date and the price next year when we are able to explain the specific [titles].”

So I guess those of you hoping to get a Wii U surprise at Gamescom, PAX Prime or the Tokyo Game Show will have to find other things to get excited about.
