There was some doubt surrounding whether or not it'd be present, but last night official word was sent through that EBX will have the Wii U playable.
With pricing now confirmed for both Australia and New Zealand, and the console being the big ticket item for this Christmas amongst tech junkies and early adopters generally, it would've been a sore omission from the show.
Stephen Wilson, EB Games MD, said: “We are incredibly excited to be able to showcase Nintendo’s innovative new Wii U game consoles to Australian consumers at this year’s EB Games Expo."
"EB Expo will be the first time gamers in Australia get hands on with Wii U. This has only been made possible due to the efforts of the world class team at Nintendo Australia."
