Nintendo will be showing its Wii U prominently at E3 2012 this year, but has no plans to unveil the pricing for the platform to attendees this June. During an investor briefing for the company, David Gibson again got wind of the new details from the company.
At the investor briefing Nintendo did confirm that the Wii U is still on schedule to arrive this year in Japan, US, Europe and Australia with plenty of details about the console at the show. While Nintendo is promising that media will have a better picture of the upcoming console after the show, that will not include the pricing for the next generation offering.
Nintendo will host its press conference for E3 2012 on Tuesday, June 5th. Last June, Nintendo unveiled the Wii U at E3 2011, and promised an even wider target audience this time around. Right now, there have been no confirmed details about the Wii U’s technical specifications. Current rumors have the console has somewhere around as/slightly more powerful than the current generation gaming consoles like the Xbox 360 and PS3. The Wii U’s big draw will once again be its gameplay advancements, with a tablet controller unlike anything we’ve seen.
Nintendo did not inform investors on when to expect pricing details for the Wii U.
