Nintendo has announced their latest console, the Wii U, will be released in Europe on 30 November.

In a press conference yesterday the Japanese gaming giant confirmed that UK consumers will be able to choose between a basic bundle with no extras and deluxe bundle that features a whole heap of goodies.

The Wii U combines a traditional console with a tablet-like controller, called the GamePad, that allows users to play games without needing a TV.

A whole host of games will also be available on the console, including Fifa 13, New Super Mario Bros and Assassin's Creed III.

No official pricing was announced for the device, but in Japan the Wii U the basic bundle will cost around £210, whilst the premium bundle is £250. Expect a price war amongst retailers as they try and reach out to shoppers during the busy Christmas period.
