While video games have gone up in retail price over the last few years, Nintendo has often kept its prices a little bit lower than the competition. During the last console generation, the company priced most Wii games $10 cheaper than the average video game. This generation, Wii U titles have mostly matched the industry standard $60 price point, but Nintendo has also shown some willingness to release titles for a little bit cheaper. Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, for example, retailed for a very affordable $40. It appears it won’t be the last Wii U title to do so, either. Nintendo has announced that Kirby and the Rainbow Curse and Mario Party 10 will both retail under the regular MSRP for most Wii U titles.

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse will retail for $40 when it arrives at the end of February. Mario Party 10 will retail for $50 when it releases the following month. If fans are concerned that this might be indicative of quality, Famitsu’s reviewers recently awarded Rainbow Curse with 8, 8, 9, and 9 ratings, earning a total 34 out of 40. Coupled with the recently announced Toys “R” Us pre-order offer, Kirby’s first adventure on Wii U looks like a pretty good bargain.
