Forums - Nintendo Discussion - New Wii U Bundles Annouced!!

Tagged games:

Will these bundles help the Wii U reach 9 or 10 million Units Sold by the end of 2014?

Yes 172 47.65%
 
No 45 12.47%
 
Possibly 9 Million but not 10 Million 85 23.55%
 
More than 10 Million 59 16.34%
 
Total:361

I happened to go to the Nintendo website for the US and saw this new bundle for the Wii U.  The games Included in this bundle are Super Mario 3D World and Nintendo Land.  Seeing that I own and love playing SM3DW I feel that this is a great bundle.

 

 

 

Secondly, I saw that there is also going to be another Mario Kart 8 Bundle.  The games are Mario Kart 8 and Nintendo Land, minus the wheel and extra controller like the first MK 8 bundle.  Apparently, this one can only be bought at Walmart.

 

 

 

Both bundles will be priced at $299.99 and should be released in mid-September.  What is everyone's thoughts on the new bundles?  Will it increase hardware sells to help Wii U reach 9 or 10 million by the end of this year?  Is anyone going to buy one of these bundles?  If I hadn't bought the first MK 8 bundle then I would definitely buy the new one.

Best game for WIIU Imo.




Good idea for a bundle, it should help sales a bit. But I think it's about a year too late, why wasn't it bundled when the game was first released?



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

I'm getting that Super Mario 3D Worlds bundle. I already said I needed another Wii U.



I bought the original Mario Kart 8 bundle and I love it!! I'm glad to see that at least Walmart will have one similar to the original because I think this bundle will help the Wii U sell more than the other one. Don't get me wrong, I love Super Mario 3D World but I believe the Mario Kart 8 bundle will attract a wider audience.

I wonder if there is going to be a Super Smash Bros. Wii U bundle eventually? Now that would definitely help the Wii U in hardware sales!!



I was pleasantly surprised when the 3D World bundle was announced! I really hope that it will help the WiiU!

I'm glad to see positive results for the poll so far. I kinda wish there was more discussion on the subject though. Oh well, I can't have it all I suppose. Lol



Good. Nintendo needs to release more bundles. Would've been nice to see a Zelda bundle with Wind Waker HD, Hyrule Warriors and perhaps Legend of Zelda, and a Platinum bundle with Bayonetta and Wonderful 101, but you can't have everything I guess. A Smash Bros. bundle is a must though, they absolutely have to bundle that game.



Nice to see!
A bit late but better than never i guess!
