However, for the price savvy among us, the Season Pass on Wii U is priced at $9.99, giving you access to all upcoming content and saving you almost $5 in the process.
As a bonus, anyone who already holds the season pass will have access to three new character packs right now
- The Avengers Explorer Character Pack, featuring Iron Skull, Scuba Iron Man, and Space Iron Man
- The Avengers Adventurer Character Pack, featuring Hyperion, Scuba Captain America, and Space Captain America
- Thunderbolts Character Pack, featuring Atlas, Citizen V, Jolt, Mach V, Meteorite, Songbird, and Techno
