Citing an email obtained by the editor, the launch is expected for November 18th in North America, with a Japanese launch a week afterwards.
The email was sent to Japanese retailer Media Land's employees.
Nintendo has remained very quiet about the Wii U since its big splash during last year's E3 event. The company confirmed a 2012 release but this is the first we have heard of a more concrete date.
In 2006, the gaming giant released the Wii on November 19th so the rumor at least makes sense. However, the company almost always releases its consoles in its home nation of Japan before the U.S. so take this with a grain of salt.
