When the Wii U launched, Nintendo Land was the game that came with the system's Deluxe Set configuration. The collection of themed games seemed like the best bet to recapture the masses who latched onto Wii Sports with Nintendo's last-gen Wii system. But now Nintendo's hoping that Mario & Luigi will do the trick in a new Wii U Deluxe Set bundle.
Starting November 1, it will be New Super Mario Bros. U and New Super Luigi U — both on one disc — that come with the price-slashed 32 GB Wii U Deluxe. From today's release:
The new configuration will sell at the low suggested retail price of $US299.99, and replaces the existing Wii U Deluxe Set, which included Nintendo Land. For fans who want to experience the uproarious fun of Nintendo Land, the game can still be purchased separately in stores and as a download in the Nintendo eShop at a new low suggested retail price of $US29.99, also beginning Nov. 1.
Those are good games to be sure but part of me thinks it's the Cat Mario title that will really get folks excited.
