Nintendo has finally crossed over into international territory for launching new consoles, it has been confirmed.  The publisher will be shipping the new Wii U device globally in order to help get out of a negative slump that started in 2011. 

Speaking to Bloomberg Japan, Nintendo boss Satoru Iwata confirmed that the device would ship, following a drawn out discussion on earnings forecasts of the company.  Nintendo slashed sales forecasts for 2012, saying that they would also be reducing shipping for the 3DS and Wii.
