We just got an awesome Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD Wii U bundle here in the United States, and that’s wonderful. It’s a great big box of joy, complete with special GamePad with Zelda designs. Any potential Wii U owner would be happy with it. Yet, despite that, I think there are going to be people who will be jealous of Europe’s three, November 2013, Wii U bundles.
Yes, Nintendo is really pushing the Wii U overseas. Three bundles will be released throughout November 2013, each filled with games people are probably going to want. It may sting especially because some of these bundles come with more than one game for £249.99 ($399).
It all starts with a Mario & Luigi Wii U bundle, coming out on November 8, 2013. It’s a 32GB model with New Super Mario Bros. U and New Super Luigi U. Buyers also get some unspecificed bonus videos, as well as a Wii Karaoke U 7 day, free trial. It’s a robust Wii U bundle and honestly, the best of the three.
The other two aren’t as stunning. Some may want them, but they aren’t Mario & Luigi good. Take the Wii Party U Wii U bundle. It’s out on November 15, 2013, and costs the same amount as the Mario & Luigi bundle, but doesn’t give you the best Wii U. You only get the 8GB model. However, Wii Party U, NintendoLand, a Wii Remote Plus, and a sensor bar are also included in the box. So is the Wii Karaoke U trial, but that’s no big deal. If someone didn’t own a Wii, this is a good one to go with since you get the controller and sensor bar. If you did, then it’s lackluster.
The Just Dance 2014 Wii U bundle is the one bringing up the rear. It’s decent, but not as good as the other offerings. You only get a 8GB Wii U, for example. However, you also get NintendoLand, Just Dance 2014, as well as a Wii Remote Plus and sensor bar. Clearly, the Wii Party U and Mario & Luigi Wii U bundles are better. Appropriately, this variation comes out last on November 22, 2013, so our friends overseas will have had ample opportunity to pick up one of the two better bundles.
