Some Euro Wii U Buyers Reporting A Distinct Lack Of Nintendo Land In Their Premium Bundle
Posted by Damien McFerran
Some of our bundled software is missing
As you'll no doubt be aware if you've been closely following our Wii U Euro launch thread, many people who ordered their systems online have been getting them a day early.
While this should be reason enough to be very excited indeed, we've been informed by some early adopters that their joy has quickly turned to despair as they've realised that Nintendo Land - the pack-in game with the Premium Wii U bundle - is missing.
As you can see from the tweets replicated below, the game is absent from some of the bundles which were delivered to expectant buyers today.
Twitter user @Angelfoxdreamer has also supplied a photo of the full contents of their Wii U Premium bundle, and as you can clearly see, Nintendo Land is conspicuous by its absence:
We're trying to get to the bottom of this and will update this news story when we uncover any fresh information. Has your copy of Nintendo Land also gone missing? Drop us a line in the comments field to let us know.
@nintendolife I ordered my Black Premium WiiU from Amazon and that has arrived but I can't seem to find NintendoLand. Any ideas?— Not Telling (@Angelfoxdreamer) November 29, 2012
UPDATE 1: Twitter user and legendary games designer John Pickford appears to have a solution to the problem:
@moosegrinder Yeah they are sending me a replacement copy. They made me buy it on the website and set the price to £0.— John Pickford (@JPickford) November 29, 2012
