Nintendo to hold Wii U event on September 13

Nintendo's next home console, the Wii U, is supposed to be launching this holiday season. As we inch ever closer to the fall, we can't help but wonder: hey, what's up?

We may finally be getting our answers in a few weeks. Nintendo has emailed Shacknews an invite to a NYC media event on September 13th. The invite promises a presentation by Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime and hands-on time with the upcoming console.

The last time Nintendo held a media event in NYC with Fils-Aime, it revealed the launch details for the 3DS. The event was held in January, and the system launched just two months later--in March. It appears that Wii U may launch within an even smaller window than that.
