Best Buy Co. Inc. this month began preparing pre-order sales for Nintendo Co.’s Wii U hardware and game titles via its online division.

This week, Bestbuy.com holds Wii U product pages for the Wii U Black Console and Wii U White Console SKUs. Both hold a ‘Coming Soon’ disclaimer.

Game titles listed as ‘Coming Soon’ include New Super Mario Bros. U, Nintendo Land, Pikmin 3, and Wii Fit U.

The retailer is allowing customers to sign-up to be notified when pre-order sales begin.

The Wii U will be released in 2012.

The Wii U GamePad allows users to transfer gameplay to the controller screen, or use the added screen to relay menu items.

It includes a 6.2-inch, 16:9 touch screen that allows users to transfer gameplay to the controller screen, or use the added screen to relay menu items.

Additionally features include Wii U controller web browsing and video call chat.

The hardware will be fully backwards compatible with the Wii.

Finally, the hardware will include a social component called Miiverse to allow users to chat and view the status of other players.
