Confirmed: New $389 Wii U bundle coming to US, includes Zombi U, Nintendo Land, Pro Controller
UPDATE: Nintendo of America has confirmed this bundle for the United States. It will include everything stated below but the differences are that Nintendo Land will be a digital copy and the price will be $389.99 instead of a solid $400.
ORIGINAL STORY: Future Shop is listing a great new Wii U bundle for release on February 17th. Its very similar to the Zombi U bundle that we saw in Europe but with an added bonus. In addition to Future Shop, Best Buy is also listing this bundle.
This new Wii U Deluxe SKU will retail for $399 and will include a Wii U Pro Controller, the 32GB Black console, a copy of Zombi U, a copy of Nintendo Land and will include 2 years of the Deluxe Digital Promotion. An added bonus is this bundle comes with an exclusive art book for Zombi U. I want to get my hands on that!
While it could have been a listing error if this bundle was completely a copy and paste of the European Zombi U bundle I believe the addition of Nintendo Land to this package makes it legit.
I’ve been saying that Nintendo needs a $399 third SKU for the Wii U with multiple bundled games for a while now. Nintendo would be wise to get a similar version of this bundle but with Black Ops 2 into stores as soon as possible.
