THQ sketch out uDraw launch plans

Wii tablet add-on arrives in November.

The uDraw GameTablet, THQ's new peripheral for the Wii, will launch on 14th November in the US.

The tablet will come bundled with art program uDraw Studio and will sell for around $69.99 (£43 / €50).

Two other games – platformer Dood's Big Adventure and board game conversion Pictionary – will both be available from launch with a budget $29.99 price tag. THQ plans to announce more titles soon.

A European release date hasn't been confirmed yet.

THQ is pretty psyched about its new gizmo. Last month CEO Brian Farrell claimed, "I've been in the industry a long time and I've never seen a reaction to the product like this be so universal. Retail loved it and said, 'Oh, Nintendo should have done this'. This is exactly the reception we wanted."

Eurogamer's Christian Donlan came away from his hands-on session with the chunky add-on reasonably impressed.

"If you're thinking that the last thing you need for your Wii is another peripheral, this might just be the device that changes your mind," he said.
