And yes, that's 2006. After deluging attendees with sales charts, DS success stories and grown men grunting their way through a game of Wii Tennis, Nintendo finally unveiled the European launch details for their upcoming console. Eurogamer reports that the system will see release on December 8th for EUR 249 and GBP 179. The European system will also have Wii Sports bundled, along with one Wiimote and one nunchuck. Software is expected to retail for between 34 and 39 pounds (or between 49 and 59 Euros). Much like other territories, the system is set to receive some 15 to 20 launch games, including the usual suspects -- Rayman: Raving Rabbids, Red Steel, Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz and Wii Play.
