Hardware WiiU Featurebanner 08 Aug

Following reports that Gametrailers had uncovered the boxart for several WiiU titles, each of which showed the same WiiU branding, Nintendo has confirmed that they have finalized the design of the WiiU boxart and that third party publishers have begun to incorporate this in the covers of their titles. So far, the WiiU elements have been spotted on the covers for Assassin’s Creed IIIJust Dance 3, and The Avengers: Battle for Earth. The covers for these titles are included below.

Online retailer Amazon now also shows the boxart for these titles, and continues to list the release dates of the above titles between late October and late November. Though Nintendo has always maintained that it is planning to launch the WiiU later this year, no launch date for the new console has been announced yet.
