Nintendo's new console, the Wii U, will be touring Australia, giving gamers a chance to get a hands-on preview.

Australian gamers will have a chance to get some hands on time with the Wii U ahead of its launch, with Nintendo setting up Wii U experience stores around the country. The tour will kick off from November 5 in all major capital cities.

Wii U launching November 30 in Australia.

Games available for preview include exclusive new titles Nintendo Land and New Super Mario Bros. U. In addition to these, participants will also have a chance to preview the latest 3DS games, including the latest from the Pokémon and Mario franchises.

The Wii U console will officially launch in Australia before the Christmas season, on November 30. An 8GB basic model in white will be available for A$349.95, while the 32GB premium model in black will cost A$429.95.

So very tempting...


Decision to either go the day after I finish my HSC exams entirely (typically... I chose to do VA, which is last of all exams, which is on the 8th) to celebrate or wait 20 or so days until my pre-order arrives through delivery.


Choices, choices, choices... If I wasn't already sold on it (or if it wasn't sold to me), I would probably go no matter what.


lol, good old Adelaide..last. :P So tempted to preorder ..eventho Im telling myself to wait till March. Must resist! ZombiU & Tekken Tag 2 are must get. :)


Yeeeah, finally a good Nintendo-related event to be held in Australia that's free!
