Via the folks at Joystiq:
Nintendo has just revealed the Wii U console will cost in ¥31,500 in Japan for a black 32GB Premium set, and ¥26,250 for the white 8GB Basic set. It’ll be available there December 8.
Now, don’t go getting out your calculators to do the conversion if you live overseas just yet. There are still two more events planned today for the US and Europe, which will reveal if the dates and pricing are the same. For reference, ¥31,500/¥26,250 converts to around $405/$338. Nintendo also revealed the GamePad will cost ¥13,440 ($173) when purchased separately.
Nintendo’s U.S. event can be seen here at 10am.
