Report: Wii U To Ship Worldwide This Holiday Season

Wii U Nintendo News 3DS

If you are already thinking about Christmas 2012 (people do), then I have the prefect gift for you. A report on Bloomberg Japan notes that we will see Nintendo’s next console during the 2012 holiday season. In which regions, though? All of them. That means that Japan, North America, Europe and Australia will be receiving it in the same time period. This came out of Iwata’s mouth.

In addition to the Wii U news, Iwata remains supportive of the portable arena in the form of the 3DS, citing that there will be major titles heading to the portable. This is good news on the back of some bad news, as shipments of the 3DS have been lowered on the back of a slash in forecast profits for the fiscal year, which ends on March 31, 2012. Back in October 2011, Nintendo forecast net sales of 790,000 million yen. Now, Nintendo forecasts net sales of 660,000 million yen. A huge loss, but not fatal, considering the treasure trove that the Wii brought in.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
