Nintendo will be holding a "major" press event in New York on September 13, where the firm is expected to announce the Wii U's release date and price.
Invitations have apparently been sent to several members of press who will learn "more about how the Wii U will change the future of gaming and entertainment". The event will be hosted by Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime.
On the last occasion where Nintendo held a press event in New York with Reggie hosting it, the firm announced a release date and price for the Nintendo 3DS. Before that, it also unveiled the launch and price details for the Wii.
