Nintendo has officially confirmed the New Super Mario Bros. U and New Super Luigi U Wii U Deluxe Set bundle following a leak from a Target ad yesterday.

The package will contain both Wii U games for $299.99. Consumers can purchase the bundle starting on November 1. This will replace the older Nintendo Land bundle made available for the Wii U’s launch, Nintendo has confirmed.

In other news, Nintendo has announced a new price for Nintendo Land: $29.99. The price drop also takes effect on November 1.

Based on Target’s recently-revealed Toy Book Ad for the coming holiday, it appears Nintendo intends to bring over a version of the European Mario & Luigi Wii U Premium Pack.

As pictured in the image above, the Wii U Deluxe Set is listed for $299.99. That’s nothing new. But there’s also some sort of odd boxart which, as far as I can tell, shows New Super Mario Bros. U along with New Super Luigi U.

Could this be another upcoming bundle Nintendo will be announcing sometime within the next few weeks?

Thanks to ES4 for the tip.
