After being released last week in North America it’s finally time for European gamers to get their hands on the new Wii U from Nintendo. The Japanese company has confirmed some details of its main midnight launch event, taking place at the HMV’s store in Oxford Street, London.
Don’t care about stressful midnight launches? You could be missing quite some good bonuses this time: the first 100 customers will receive two free games together with their console, one of them being New Super Mario Bros U and another selected title. Not fast enough to be in the top 100? Fear not as Nintendo has something for the next 100 customers: for all software purchased with the console, they’ll be getting a 5 £ off every game. More free stuff will be given to the first 500 customers as well.
The store will be open from 11pm on November 29 with plenty of extra stock to ensure no one will have to leave without their brand new Wii U. No news yet for events for the rest of Europe.
Wii U was released last week, on November 18 in North America: the initial stock was almost sold out and Nintendo had to send more consoles to retailers for the Black Friday shopping sessions. The console officially hits Europe next week, on November 30, and Japan on December 6: we’ll have to wait and see if the console will be as successful as it was in North America.
