    This is amazing bundle. Nintendo is learning the lesson and releasing more bundles.

      Bayonetta 2 and Smash deserved their.own bundles…shame on you Nintendo.

      • shaw98

        Smash did have a GC adapter bundle and maybe they did not want to take up to much shelf space.

  • shaw98

    Oh and it comes with Nintendo land. Love the bundle. Very colorful.

    • HyruleSmasher

      awwww you do know it’s the box that is colorful right. V_V

  • Ser2k2

    This is good for the future consumers.

  • Kevin Malone

    That is one attention grabbing box.

  • Kallumsmarties

    Not going to lie, I’m disappointed. There’s nothing special about it. Just a plain black Wii U with a copy of Splatoon and Nintendo Land in a colourful box. I think it was a missed opportunity to give the Wii U itself a funky new colour.

    • Kevin Malone

      Wii U with an ink-splatter color scheme sounds good.

    • HyruleSmasher

      I,m sitting here saying the same thing its nothing special, plus the games are digital V_V how hard is it to put the disk in the box

  • Leonel

    Sounds really good now nintendo has to market this correctly and they can see an increase in sales

  • Tails the Foxhound

    Neat, my brother was looking to get a Wii U and this is pretty close to perfect.

  • HyruleSmasher

    soooo …..ammmmm Nintendo! how long do we have to wait to get a limited edition Wii U box set that has a color scheme that is not black. for example this game bundle could have had splats of paint all over they console and game-pad. V_V

    • paidenthusiast

      That would’ve been awesome especially with a Splatoon amiibo included. I love how creative they were with the Wind Waker HD bundle so it is kind of surprising they didn’t do that with this bundle but it’s nice to see that Nintendo is heavily marketing and advertising Splatoon. It’s gonna be a bonafide million seller for sure now

      • HyruleSmasher

        i wondering how exspensive is it to slap some paint on a Wii-U -_-

  • Ducked

    This is a grea deal! I hope it sells well. I have high hope for Splatoon.

  • mind_combatant

    i think the most interesting thing about this bundle announcement for those who already own a Wii U is the implication that maybe Nintendo Land will finally be available digitally via the eShop, since this bundle has “a pre-installed copy of Nintendo Land” which until now has only been available on disc, i believe.

  • That is a sick looking box for the bundle

  • Trinity

    See they’re still going all out with 32GB…
