"South Africa! We can confirm that the #WiiU will be launching alongside Europe on 30th November 2012..." read a tweet on their account.
Nintendo's new console stands out thanks to a new GamePad controller, which features a 6.2-inch touchscreen in addition to traditional console controls.
The console also features extensive online connectivity, along with video-streaming services.
The machine will launch in two variants, a cheaper Basic bundle and a more expensive Premium bundle.
The Basic bundle features 8GBs of storage and no pack-in game, while the Premium version has 32GBs of space and the Nintendo-Land title. Storage can be expanded via the USB ports.
