No Wii U Price or Release Date Info This Year

It seems like, in the wake of the news that PlayStation Vita wont launch in western territories this year, Nintendo is focusing all of their efforts on the 3DS in a bid to take the holiday market. Possibly because of this reason, Satoru Iwata has told said not expect any concrete news on Wii U launch plans this year.

Speaking at an investors meeting, Iwata told attendants that “Since the Wii U we showed you at the E3 show in June was still in the development phase without very specific proposals on the software titles, we are going to announce the release date and the price next year when we are able to explain the specific proposals.” Sounds like 2011 will be all about handheld Mario in that case, with Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7 on their way, and we can maybe look forward to a Nintendo news blowout in the new year and the lead-up to E3, assuming of course the console hasn’t been released by then.
