Surprise: New Wii U bundle sold out at Target, Mario is still a system seller
Will the new Mario/Luigi 32GB Wii U help system sales? Its very possible that it is already. This new bundle is sold at on Target’s website..
This isn’t a huge surprise as New Super Mario Bros U and New Super Luigi U should be solid system sellers. There are certainly a lot of people on the fence in terms of buying a Wii U and this bundle will likely push a lot of them over to the other side. Just how much will this bundle increase sales? Its hard to tell right now.
Wii U sales tripled last month in the United States off the $50 32GB price cut and Wind Waker HD bundle, nearing 100k in September. It remains to be seen how well it will do in October. It should be noted that the NPD tracking period for October runs from October 6th through November 2nd. So the Wii U should see a small boost from this new bundle as it released on November 1st.
Hopefully these new Wii U bundles turn around the system’s hardware sales.
