Aussie Wii U Price And Release Date Revealed

We’re just received word from Nintendo Australia — and it’s official — the Wii U will be released on our shores on November 30. The premium ‘deluxe’ set will retail at $429.95 or you can pick up the ‘basic’ package for $349.95.

The Wii U premium pack seems like the most value for money, containing a black Wii U console a Wii U GamePad, and 32GB of internal storage, alongside a copy of Nintendo Land and a HDMI cable among other things.

With regards to the price itself — I’m actually pleasantly surprised. After the US and Japanese pricing, I had guessed that Nintendo would sell its premium pack for $499.95. A pleasant surprise then, and perhaps an indication we are set to see fairer game prices across the board here.
