Does a tweet from one of Pachter's fans give a glimpse into a Wii U promotion?
Burger King might be offering Wii U toys starting on October 25, according to a rumor discussed by Game Industry Analyst Michael Pachter on a recent episode of Pach Attack.
There is also speculation that these Burger King toys could include some sort of NFC (near-field communication) capabilities, making use of a little-discussed feature of the Wii U GamePad.
Burger King and Nintendo ran a similar promotion for the Wii, but those toys didn't come out until after the system's launch.
The launch of the Wii U is officially set for the holidays, but recent news (and sound logic) points to a November 18 release for the system in North America.
