In early October Nintendo UK launched its own online store, which has since played host to some pre-order bonuses and a regional exclusive with this rather attractive Luigi-themed 3DS XL. It seems the website is keen to lead the line in terms of driving Wii U sales this Holiday season, too, unveiling a Mario Mega Bundle.
For £299.99 the bundle includes the following:
- A Wii U Premium 32GB system, bundled with New Super Mario Bros. U and New Super Luigi U on a single disc.
- A disc copy of Super Mario 3D World
- A Mario Wii RemotePlus
- A Mario hat
A standard bundle (such as the duel Mario Wii U Premium set) typically costs £249.99 in the UK, though some retailers are running promotions — for an extra £50 this pack offers Super Mario 3D World, the red Mario Remote (which costs around £40) and the hat. It certainly represents a decent saving and, most importantly, there's a rad hat on offer.
You can check out the offer here; it's UK only.
Are any of you UK Nintendo fans that are yet to take the plunge on a Wii U tempted by this, and would those of you in other regions pounce — Cat Mario style — on an equivalent offer? Let us know below.
