New game bundles for Wii U, 2DS coming mid-September

Do you smell that? That's the smell of the holidays being around four months away. You have 117 days until Christmas and 109 days until Hanukkah. 

That sound like plenty of time, but once you put the gift buying on the backburner…it never comes back. Then you find yourself frantically trying to buy gifts, wading through the hundreds of people that did the same thing. Nintendo is here for you procrastinators and for all of you that find yourselves Wii U-less or 2DS-less.

Nintendo is packaging up the Wii U and 2DS (separately) with games and putting them at a price that you can't ignore:

  • Super Mario 3D World Deluxe Set: Starting mid-September, the new Wii U Deluxe Set will include the Wii U console and physical Super Mario 3D World and Nintendo Land games at a suggested retail price of $299.99.
  • Walmart Exclusive Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Set: In mid-September, Walmart stores nationwide will offer a special-edition Wii U bundle that includes the console along with physical Mario Kart 8 and Nintendo Land games at a suggested retail price of $299.99. This exclusive bundle will be available while supplies last.
  • New Nintendo 2DS Bundles: In early October, three new Nintendo 2DS bundles will hit stores. The new bundles feature the Electric Blue, Crimson Red or Sea Green Nintendo 2DS system along with a code to download Mario Kart 7 from the Nintendo eShop. The bundles will be available at a suggested retail price of $129.99 each.

There you have it, you just read one of the first articles that mentioned the holidays.

Are you ready?
