Wii U Mario Mega Bundle (UK)

Nintendo fans in the United Kingdom holding out on buying a Wii U will be in for a treat next week, as Nintendo UK has announced a premium Wii U package called the Mario Mega Bundle. The bundle includes the disc versions of New Super Mario Bros. UNew Super Luigi U, and Super Mario 3D World. Additional items include a red Mario-themed Wii Remote Plus and a Mario hat to go with the black 32GB Wii U console.

The bundle can be pre-ordered for £299.99 from the Nintendo UK Online Store and will be available 29th November 2013. It is unclear if North America will get this same package in the future, but a similar bundle featuring New Super Mario Bros. U and New Super Luigi U (no 3D World, Mario Wii Remote, or Mario hat) is available there.

This package looks like an incredible deal for anybody in the U.K. looking for a Wii U and an additional Mario fix. For those who are curious about playing New Super Mario Bros. U and New Super Luigi U, both games have received equally favorable reviews from oprainfall’s Jonathan Higgins.

    I would buy that in a second in the US!

  • aeo

    omg! plz bring this NOA!

  • Ann

    THIS is what Nintendo of America needs to do. They need to be more like NoE.

  • Lord Ackercocke

    If Wii U’s don’t fly off the shelves with this bundle there’s seriously something wrong with gamers.

  • James Best

    Wait, you get like 2.5 games, the system, and a Mario hat for just $300. Well, if this doesn’t send Wii U units flying off shelves, nothing will.

      + a Mario theme Wiimote motionplus

  • Dondon

    300 quid folks, is the equivalent of $485. It’s really not the best of deals considering the wind waker version for £245.

    • Doru

      Prices in Europe are always higher, the $ is traded with a € without looking at the market value.

      So if it costs €300, in the US it would be $300

      Almost, but not quite true. The normal Wii U + Mario + Luigi Bundle costs 250 pounds in the UK, which costs 300$ in the US. Extrapolating from that this bundle which costs 300 punds in the UK we get that the price ratio in the UK is (price of megabundle UK)/(price of normal bundle UK) = 300/250 = 1.2. I.e. this pack costs 20% more than the normal bundle in the UK. That would be like the mega bundle costing 1.2 * 300$ = 360$ in the US. Still a great deal, because SM3DW is 60$ alone so you get a cap and Wiimote for free.

    Please ring to NOA…my body is ready Reggie!!

    If this comes out in the US, I may finally be convinced to buy a Wii U. I do need one before SMT x Fire Emblem comes out
