Nintendo of Europe have also announced that you’ll also be able to pick up Princess Peach and Yoshi themed Wii Remotes on the same day. Splendid.

These bundles have yet to be announced for North America, but if Nintendo sees sense then you should expect an announcement fairly soon, we hope. Regardless, this is a good move from NoE and should hopefully boost the sales of the Wii U, again we hope.

About David Rawlings

David Rawlings, or ‘Rawky’ as we like to call him, joined the Operation Rainfall Campaign at the beginning. He’s British and found solace with us as he was able to understand our pain about Nintendo and their localizing faux pas. He’s a big fan of the letter ‘U’ and refuses to remove them from words, even though we constantly ask him to. He also believes it’s about time Princess Daisy got kidnapped.
