Here's what Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing Scott Moffitt had to say about the news:

Mario and Luigi are two of the biggest heroes in video games. This new Wii U configuration gives people instant access to not one, but two of the most well-received Wii U games. It’s another example of the tremendous value and variety that Nintendo is offering consumers this holiday season.
