A new Wii U bundle featuring Splatoon is coming to Best Buy, Nintendo has revealed.
Good going Ninty,we need this and Devil'sThird/XenobladeX bundle....
would be better if it was limited edition console, it should not be expensive to change the color of the console
* Good place to market Splatoon. Tons of Best buys, means tons of opportunity to have Splatoon on the shelves and been seen by people in real life, not just online.
Well if Japan got a bundle for Xenoblade we may as well
Come on we need colored consoles! Can't wait for a redesign.
This is an amazing deal! If I didn't already have a Wii U, I would definitely get this. So stoked for Splatoon!
Not really an amazing deal, an okay deal but not amazing. It would maybe qualify as good if it came with a physical copy. Of course just my opinion, I personally think the system needs a price drop or an actual amazing bundle maybe thats why I feel that way. The box art looks cool though, and it is better than just having the SMB option
I think it's a good deal, because you get the deluxe version of the console (originally $350) along with two games totally free. That's around $170 in savings, at least from when I bought my Wii U. I would like a splattered console design, but I don't see how this isn't a great deal.
The system is $300 and has been for a long time whether it was $350 a year or two ago is irrelevant now.
It gives you two free games. I literally do not understand why you're complaining.
I am not complaining I am simply stating my point this is not an amazing offer. Do you really think most people would get NintendoLand if it was an optional addition for $60 more? I think not, and Nintendo probably believes the same or else they would not throw it in every bundle. All this bundle is is the same thing all three companies have been doing, regular retail price with a free game. Heck I looked and NintendoLand is $12 new and $10 used at GS, but yeah amazing deal, mind blown keep up the insane deals Nintendo. Sorry, but as far as deals go this really is not some big deal or good unless you dont have a Wii U and want Splatoon at launch. It is also a nice way to get people to notice and pick up the game so kudos to them for making it a bundle. You act like this has $170 worth of bonuses that is actually worth that yet NintendoLand goes for $10, the wii u is $300 not $350 so no $50 off, and Splatoon is $60. Your overblown $170 is in reality just $70 if you actually really wanted NintendoLand, and whether it would have cost you that a year ago is irrelevant today. I tell you what if it was two games with $40+ retail value it would be a damn good deal, but it is not it is an okay deal. NintendoLand is that little incentive to make an ignorant person think they are getting another game, yet everyone else knows it is a game they would probably otherwise ignore if it was $40-60. Another thing that could have made it an amazing deal if it was a cool limited edition console/gamepad with paint splatters etc. This is just nothing more than the standard buy a system get a free game promotion that has been happening for a very long time.
Another fun bundle for Wii U. I have a feeling this game is going to be a successful new IP. I can't wait. This bundle looks slick...
again with exclusivity deals. Doesn't Nintendo want to sell their stuff. I mean, is it really hard to offer their products everywhere?
I know its a bit baffling its a new IP, and this bundle was meant to promote Splatoon. Somehow they still thought "store exclusive bundle that'll do the trick!"
I like the idea of Splatoon being bundled it would've made it a better deal to have thrown in the 3 pack Amiibos instead of Nintendoland. ;)
I like that idea :)
And why does the UK get a physical copy and we get digital?
But no Smash Bundle...?
need a wii u for upstairs, if only was a limited ink covered wii u, like the wind waker hd console.
They need to make the console itself a limited edition. Maybe a WiiU that's cover in splashes of paint or something similar. Bundles like that would surely entice even more customers. It's still a decent bundle, but some actual special edition stuff would be pretty effective. And market the hell out of it, I hope Nintendos new marketing partner does a good job, cause Nintendos advertising has been pretty weak the last few years. They also need to get Amazon back...everyone buys off Amazon...
