If you’ve ever questioned whether or not Nintendo of America loves us as much as Nintendos of other regions, then feast your eyes on what Nintendo fans in Australia and New Zealand are getting in a month or so…

3DS Bundles

Yes, these glorious amiibo / game / NFC reader bundles are all priced at a conservative $69.95. It looks as though the Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest bundle comes packaged with the once-highly sought after and impossible to find Marth amiibo; the Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright bundle comes packaged with the manly blue haired stud, Ike; and last but not least, the Super Smash Bros for the Nintendo 3DS bundle comes packaged with everyone’s favorite bounty huntress, Samus Aran!

While the NFC readers themselves aren’t that exciting, getting the game and amiibo packaged together like that is pretty nifty. While we did get a great Fire Emblem Fates bundle in the states, it was harder to order and far more expensive. If Nintendo of America had offered something comparable here, I would have jumped on it. But, alas, Australia and New Zealand need some game love too, and they’ll be able to enjoy these as of 9/22 of this year.

    I’ll still prefer to live in North America or the U.K. cause the Aussies censorship laws are not for me. Nintendo should be blamed more fpr region locking the 3DS. Otherwise, we could still get these bundles. Ah well.

    Why weren’t these bundles available…I don’t know when the games actually came out!? I still stand that Codename Steam would have sold more copies had they bundled it with a marth amiibo….
