Wii U European release date and pricing confirmed?

A retailer in France, FNAC, has supposedly confirmed the European release date of the Wii U, along with pricing details of the system and its games. Signs have been plastered over Paris stating that the machine hits stores on December 9, at a price of €349, which equates to £275 or $440.

Pre-orders are available already both in store and online, which shows the price of Wii U titles at €69.90 or £55/$88. This is steep compared with previous launch prices, but is most likely due to the inclusion of the tablet game pad. This date and price is by no means official, and stores often hazard a guess at these things, but it still is worth noting that a chain as large as FNAC will already have been told the actual release date and prices by Nintendo themselves, so this seems pretty reliable.


More Zelda Symphony dates added

Nintendo has announced more dates to be added onto the tour of the Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses show throughout the US and Canada. Newly added dates include among others:

-Sept. 15: Toronto
-Sept. 22: Minneapolis
-Oct. 12: Dallas
-Oct. 25: Chicago
-Nov. 6: Calgary, Alberta
-Nov. 28: New York
-Dec. 8: West Palm Beach
-Dec. 9: Miami

To mark the occasion, the Nintendo World outlet in Rockerfeller Plaza, New York, will be holding a special event on September 14, which includes an interactive Ocarina workshop, a mini-concert, meet-and-greets with a Link cosplay model and the musicians, as well as (for a lucky few) a special concert pack containing a t-shirt, poster and an ACTUAL Ocarina.
