New Wii U and 2DS Bundles Announced, Rolling Out in North America this Fall
Posted by Matt Suckley
Shaping up for the holiday season
It may seem a little anticlimactic after today's big news, but for those happy to stick with trusty, old, familiar hardware, Nintendo have lined up a couple of decent bundles for this Fall.
If you're in North America, you can expect some new Wii U and 2DS bundles to arrive on your shores just in time for the Holiday season. The first is the Super Mario 3D World Deluxe Set, which brings together the following: a Wii U console, Super Mario 3D World and Nintendo Land. The bundled games are in physical, boxed form, and we reckon they're a great way to start your Wii U collection – Nintendo Land and Super Mario 3D World received scores of 9 and 10 respectively in our reviews. The bundle has a recommended retail price $299.99, which isn't a bad price at all.
The second Wii U bundle is very similar to the first, except this one is a Walmart exclusive, and it replaces Super Mario 3D World with Mario Kart 8. It also has a suggested retail price of $299.99, and launches in mid-September, just like the first bundle.
Now onto the 2DS bundle. Cheap and cheerful as ever, these bundles feature three differently coloured 2DS systems for you to choose from – Crimson Red, Electric Blue, or Sea Green – along with a download code for Mario Kart 7. This one will be priced at around $129.99.
All in all, these bundles seem like pretty decent value to us; even though they've only been officially announced in North America, we wouldn't be at all surprised if similar bundles appeared in Europe before Christmas rolls around. What do you think – would you pick up any of these bundles at those prices? Let us know in the comments.
