Nintendo will live stream all Wii U launch presentations tomorrow

Tomorrow Nintendo will finally lift the lid on pricing and launch details for the Wii U console.

Tomorrow, through two online broadcasts and an all-day, live-streamed event in New York City, Nintendo will finally reveal pricing and launch details for the Wii U.

The New York City event begins tomorrow at 10 a.m. EDT. Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime will take the stage to announce the console's release date and discuss "more about how the Wii U will change the future of gaming and entertainment." The presentation will be live streamed on Nintendo's official Facebook page.

A Nintendo Direct covering launch details for Japan is scheduled for 3 a.m. EDT (4 p.m. in Japan) tomorrow, seven hours before the U.S. event, and one for Europe will broadcast alongside the New York City conference beginning at 3 p.m. BST.

Nintendo unveiled the Wii U at E3 2011, the successor to the Wii console released in 2006. At E3 this year, the company detailed its plans for the Miiverse social network as well a closer look at the redesigned GamePad controller.

Polygon will be on-hand at the New York City conference providing live coverage. We will also be sharing details on both the Japanese and European Nintendo Direct presentations.
