Posted by Liam Doolan

Mario & Luigi Premium Pack also on the way Down Under

Australia and New Zealand may have missed out on the limited edition Zelda-themed Wii U bundle, but that doesn’t mean all hope is lost. Nintendo Australia has today announced it will bulk up its Wii U offerings with two new value packs - just in time for the holiday period.

Consumers who purchase a Wii U Basic Pack priced at $AU349.95 from 14th November onwards will also receive a Just Dance 2014 Additional Set at no extra cost.

This bundle includes:

  • Wii U Basic Pack
  • Just Dance 2014 Wii U game disc
  • Nintendo Land game disc
  • Wii Remote Plus (White)
  • Sensor Bar

Following this will be the release of the Skylanders SWAP Force Wii U Basic Pack on on 21st November for the price of AU$349.95.

This pack includes:

  • Wii U Basic Pack
  • Nintendo Land game disc
  • Skylanders SWAP Force starter pack that includes:
  • Skylanders SWAP Force Wii U game disc
  • Portal of Power®
  • Three Skylanders figures, including Ninja Stealth Elf and two SWAP Force characters: EXCLUSIVE Colour Shift Wash Buckler and Blast Zone
  • Collector poster, trading cards and sticker sheets

Adding to this is the release of the Mario & Luigi Premium Pack on 7th November, with pricing yet to be announced. All three will also arrive just in time for Super Mario 3D World, launching 30th November.

Let us know what you think about these bundles, and if they have the ability to turn Wii U sales around in Australia and New Zealand.

As a New Zealander,
I'm merely glad to hear we're finally receiving a little recognition as both consumers and fans of the Nintendo franchise. And I was even given the capabilities to try out a little Link Between Worlds/Donkey Kong/Super Mario 3D World recently. All of which were a blast for that matter. So I personally have high hopes for the future of Nintendo

The Skylanders bundle needed to come out at the Skylanders launch two weeks ago.

These bundles better come with a price drop! $428 is way too much for Wii U premium bundle as it is, $350 would be the magic number for these bundles.

Seeing as the entire PAL region has only accounted for less than 10,000 units in half a year, I shudder to think what Australia contributed to that total. Not getting the Zelda bundle OR the price drop hasn't helped the Wii U's situation here either. A SM3DW bundle with a price drop might have an impact though.

These "family oriented" bundles are a good way to get rid of the 8GB Wii U that nobody wanted due to the small storage size. People buying these aren't likely to DL a lot of retail games so less need to attach an external HDD.

@Falco There's a big difference between practically no storage (Basic) and enough storage to store several full games (Premium). With the Premium, you also get the Gamepad charging dock and stand, Wii U console stand, and access to the digital discount program:

There is 24gb difference; also known as nothing. As for the rest of the junk like a charging stand, no thanks. I don't download games I buy the physical copy's. Why post a link? do you think I'm stupid?
