wii u gift guide wii u deluxe bundle mario and luigiNice to see you! If you’re visiting our little Wii U gift guide, then odds are Nintendo’s recent cavalcade of marketing has succeeded and you got the message that the Wii U exists, it’s a new entity entirely separate from the Wii, and there are exclusive games you can enjoy on it. Good for you. Which means now you need to know what would be good to buy with a Wii U. That’s where the Wii U gift guide comes in for the save. With GamerTell’s help, you’ll know exactly what you need.

This means you have to start with a Wii U. You’re going to want a 32GB model. Yes, there is a cheaper 8GB model, but don’t even look at it. Even though it does accept external USB hard drives for storage, you don’t want to have to pick up a new console and extra storage at the same time. No, you want the $299.99 Wii U Deluxe Set. It comes with the console, New Super Mario Bros. Wii U, and New Super Luigi U. If you didn’t already own a Wii, you should also grab one $39.99 Wii Remote Plus and $19.99 Nunchuk, for multiplayer. Actually, you can go ahead and pick up the Remote Plus and Nunchuk used at GameStop. They’re pretty durable.

Next up on the Wii U gift guide is games. Even though your new Wii U console should come with at least one game for you to enjoy, maybe two, you’re going to want more. There weren’t a lot of killer games released for the console this year, but these six titles are practically necessities.
