Rumour: Wii U pricing details surface

Alongside rumours of a new, larger Nintendo 3DS model, Japanese newspaper Nikkei have also reported expected pricing information for the Wii U.

It will arrive at retail for a recommended retail price of ¥30,000 (£250/ $385).

The paper also confirms rumours of the Wii U delivering distribution of non-game content, which will include a car navigator (GPS), books, and a karaoke service with around 10,000 songs.

Nintendo previously stated that they wouldn’t be sharing Wii U pricing details during their E3 press conference, so it is unclear as to whether Nikkei are purely speculating.
