Previously, the company had given a huge range, from April to December.
Nintendo is expected to show off the Wii U next month at the CES event and have playable demos on the show floor. The company launched the console, and showed off its touchscreen controller at this year's E3 show.
While unconfirmed, thanks to the new provided roadmap, industry insiders now believe Nintendo will set a price and release date at this summer's E3 for an actual release sometime during the holiday season.
There has not been too much revealed about the system as of yet, but Nintendo has confirmed the games will be on a proprietary disc that is not Blu-ray or DVD. Additionally, the console will run on a processor similar to the one used in the IBM "Watson" supercomputer.
