Wii U Only Available in White at Launch?

Share And Comment

If like me you fell instantly in love with the glossy black Wii U and Wii U Gamepad, well you might have to wait a little while. Nintendo has confirmed to a Destructoid reporter that it is likely only the white model will make launch.

They didn’t give a likely ETA for the black model, only stating that it would be arriving at some point. That is a massive shame as far as I’m concerned as the white model looks a little bit more kid friendly in my opinion, whereas the glossy black Wii U and Wii U Gamepad genuinely look like a sexy piece of gaming kit.

Oh well, perhaps by the time they get round to launching the black Wii U there might actually be some games worth buying for the console (ouch! OK sorry, have to remain impartial…) and it would also be nice if they get round to ever making the heavily rumored 3DS Lite/XL that they also make that in high gloss black to match, rather than that weird two-tone black/dark brown thing they have going on with the ‘cosmo black’ model.

So anyway – Wii U colors, which would you guys prefer?
