It’s happening! The Wii U Deluxe Set is getting a price drop! Nintendo has announced that starting on September 20, the Wii U Deluxe Set is dropping down to an MSRP of $299.99. This puts it at the same price as the Wii U Basic Set, implying that set is being phased out. Nintendo seems to be poised to take on competing systems this holiday season with a very competitive price point and a strong lineup of games.
Also relevant to the world of hardware is a new Wii U Wind Waker HD bundle! The new bundle, which was previously rumored, is coming on September 20, the same day as the Wii U price drop. This bundle is going to be a huge bargain. For $299.99, it includes a Wii U Deluxe System, a special GamePad adorned with the Hyrule crest, a code for a digital copy of The Wind Waker HD, and a download code for a digital copy of the book Hyrule Historia. Amazing! If you don’t have a Wii U, this bundle is the way to go, hands down. This is shaping up to be a great holiday season for Wii U indeed.
