So I just check on the European eShop and:

  • Pikmin 3 is at 50€ (€49,99)
  • The Wonderful 101 is at 50€ (€49,99)

I plan on checking Nintendo Land and New Super Mario Bros. U, as well as Game & Wario (which should be 40) and LEGO City Undercover, but... I didn't expected that. I have always seen my Nintendo home console games at 60€ at retail — at least since the Gamecube — and this is great news. Is this somehow also the case in other currencies and other territories?

Pikmin 3 is still $60

Where I live, they sell Pikmin 3, NSMBU, Nintendo Land and Wonderful 101 for 40€. I guess I'm lucky?

Same here for me when it comes to retailers such as Amazon.fr.

On the eShop, Nintendo Land and NSMBU are still 60€, so I'm guessing only recent first-party releases have the new prices. Wouldn't be bad if it could stay that way...

Well, if they're dropping prices over in Europe, it becomes even more enticing over there. All I read about is Europe slashing prices and removing Wii U's from stores, etc. And this may be another way to stop that over there.

Yep. The most important advantage I see in this is that now, at full prices, it is possible to consider a Wii U with Nintendo Land and another major 1st party game (Pikmin 3 or The Wonderful 101 so far) for 400 € max. That's A LOT better than the previous psychological hurdle of 410, which meant "for more than 400."

(But then again, I got NSMBU with my Deluxe Wii U for 1€ more, so you won't see me rage.)
