Having been officially unveiled last year, and showcased once again during E3 2012, the German arm of online retailer Amazon has suggested Japanese gaming giant Nintendo will launch the eagerly awaited Nintendo Wii U on December 21st.
Previously tipped for a November 18th arrival, the as yet unconfirmed Nintendo Wii U release date has once again been called into question with Amazon.de listing the device with December 21st launch giving those looking to snap up the next-generation console ahead of the Christmas period just days to do so.

Despite this premium price point, the retailer has revealed that Nintendo "has not yet provided retail price" whilst suggesting that "the price may drop even more".
Casting a shadow of doubt over the latest Nintendo Wii U release day leaks, Amazon.co.uk last week started taking pre-orders for the upcoming console with a £199 price point and a July release briefly handed to the Wii follow-on before being hastily removed and an apology emailed to those fast to snap up the device calling the listing an "error."
"Wii U will launch some time between E3 - which is in June - at the end of the year so essentially the second half of the year,” Nintendo’s US head Reggie Fils-Aime said recently.
