Wii U price cut and Wind Waker HD bundle on the horizon
Today is a good day to be a Nintendo fan. The company announced that they are cutting the price of the Wii U by $50, and they confirmed a Wii U bundle for The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD.
The $50 price drop of the Wii U Deluxe Set will bring the cost of the console down to $299.99, which should help boost sales and put the Wii U in a more competitive fight when the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One release in November, both of which are priced $100 and $200 more, respectively. The price drop will become effective on September 20.
The limited-edition Wii U bundle featuring The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD will also be launching September 20. Nintendo announced these items at the GameStop Managers Show in Las Vegas, along with a Nintendo 2DS.
Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America's president and COO, said, "Nintendo has one of the strongest and most diverse video game lineups in our history. Today we're making those unique Nintendo experiences more accessible and affordable. However you play and whatever you play, Nintendo has you covered."
