The ever allusive Wii U will be making an appearance next month at CES 2012, but it appears that the release window for the console has just been narrowed down ever so slightly. Nintendo is currently aiming to release their new home console sometime between June of 2012 and the end of 2012. This makes a decent amount of sense, as one would expect Nintendo to officially set a release date for the Wii U at E3 2012.
The old release window for the Wii U was sometime between April 2012 and December 2012, so although it may be further away, at least it has been narrowed down slightly. Still, Nintendo really does need to try and make the Wii U more public than they currently have, as most modern consumers have likely forgotten about its existence since its reveal six months ago.
