Wii U Price Drop Confirmed

joshuaboyjoshuaboy Posts: 10,858 ✭✭✭✭✭

Deluxe model will drop to $299.99 beginning with the launch of the Wind Waker HD bundle.

Nintendo has announced a $50 price drop for Wii U. Beginning on September 20, the Wii U Deluxe model will be available for $299.99.

The new price will take effect alongside the previously-confirmed Wind Waker HD bundle, which will also retail for $299.99 and includes a 32GB hard drive, a special Zelda-themed GamePad, a digital copy of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD and a digital version of the Zelda Hyrule Historia book.

“The price decline is pretty straightforward,” Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime told IGN. “Really, the focus on heightening the value for Wii U is now that we are in a position where we’ve got a regular pace of great software. Pikmin 3, New Super Luigi U that just launched physically, Wonderful 101 in September, and then Wind Waker. Then we’ve got strong third-party content coming for the holidays as well. Scribblenauts, Skylanders, Sonic Lost World, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Assassin’s Creed IV, Watch Dogs. So, strong pace of first-party, strong third-party content. Now’s the time to make the Wii U even more affordable and heighten the value.”


Fils-Aime also expressed excitement for Hyrule historia, telling us, “Digitally, it’s phenomenal. You could look at it through the GamePad. You can look at it on your big screen, turn the pages, search for specific items. It’s essentially a digital version of the book that you’ll be able to access through the GamePad, that you’ll download onto the system. It’ll be resident on the system. It’s really cool.”

Look out for more from our interview with Fils-Aime on IGN in the days to come, and expect us to unbox the Wind Waker bundle in the weeks leading up to its launch.

    I'm a little salty, but whatever. $299.99 with WWHD and Zelda Hyrule Historia included is a great deal. $299 for the Wii U 32 GB is good value going forward, and with that software lineup it might be a problem this Christmas.

    They need a game drop.
    If the 3d mario was something new instead of a multiplayer version of the 3DS game I'd get on sooner.
    X, Smash & MK come out next year so I'll have to get one by next fall.
