August 2013. I would have gotten it closer to launch, but I was still saving up gift money and gift cards. I got the Deluxe bundle with Nintendo Land and bought ZombiU. Got Trine 2 and the Rayman Challenger App very soon after.

"MK8" bundle. A glorious thing.

May 2013 Henny. As soon as I got a copy of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, I ordered my console online. I regret nothing, Henny.

lol same, but for me I don't think I'll ever launch day a console ever again, not just Nintendo.  





June 2014, just a month after Mario Kart 8 released :P

And I have already 15 retail games and a bunch of digital (including FRN, that should be a retail game), so for me it has been fantastic so far. At launch I would have probably suffered some serious droughts but 2014 was a sweet spot.



Got mine for Christmas 2013. Mainly for Super Mario 3D World and I knew that MK8 and Smash were on the way.



June 2014, because of Mario Kart, and because I found it on sale. I bought my WiiU only for 170€, so that was an amazing deal.
