Nintendo held an online event last night to celebrate all things Wii U, and shortly after the event, Nintendo Australia got in touch to tell us the release date and price for Australia.

It’s going to come in two variants: a basic and premium edition. The basic edition will cost you $349.95. The basic edition nabs you a white Wii U with 8GB of storage and a white gamepad.

The premium edition has a bit more bang for your buck. At $429.95, it includes the black Wii U console with 32GB of storage, a black gamepad, and HDMI cable a charging dock for the gamepad and a sensor bar for the Nintendo Land software. You’ll also get yourself in on the Nintendo Network Premium program that will give you points for Nintendo eShop purchases.

In the US, the premium kit is going on sale for $US349.99 while the basic kit will cost $US299.99.

Both kits go on sale in Australia November 30, right in time to go under the tree for Christmas.
