Console bundles aren’t only a great way for console makers to theme their offerings around a title that entices consumers to purchase, but also an awesome opportunity for fans to pick up premium products at a bargain. We all know about the premium launch bundle with Nintendo Land, we’ve recently seen a Super Mario Bros. U Bundle from Target, and many are anticipating the Zombi U bundle in North America (already available in Canada).

On March 22nd a brand new bundle will be available… Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate: Premium Pack.

Available March 22nd, the bundle will include the Premium 32GB Wii U Console, Wii U Pro Controller, Wii U Gamepad, Wii U Gamepad Cradle, Wii U Gamepad Stand, and of course a copy of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for the XBOX360. Kidding, kidding… Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for the Wii U.

Those lucky ducks in Japan were able to snag a premium Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Bundle when the Wii U launched in their country, but the time for complaining is over. If you’ve already got the Wii U, you’re in great shape. If you have yet to buy it, this could be a great opportunity. Just make sure you act quickly, because when pre-orders for this limited edition bundle go on sale, they’re expected to sell out pretty fast.

    Damn, that’s what we get for being early adaptors but I still love my wii U.

    • Genesect4ssb4

      U mean adopters. lol

    • Tecpedz94

       Thats why i didn’t buy one, Im waiting for a sale and or great bundle.

      • ekim mike

         But the price will probably only go down in early 2014.

        • Tecpedz94

           Fine than a good bundle between now and the spring when zelda WW comes as well as pikmin and other great games :p

  • Forest Marie

    It would nice if we knew the price of this bundle. 

    •  it will probably cost as much as the zombiu bundle (include the same stuff plus a game so why would the price be different?)

      • AKT4

        I’m fairly sure that this one doesn’t have the Nintendo Land download code as the ZombiU bundle has.

        • Lazara the Last

          ZombiU bundle didn’t include Nintendo Land here in Europe ^^

          • bizzy gie

            It didn’t come as a digital download? That’s the way NL is distributed if you bought the Zombi U bundle.

          • Lazara the Last

            No download either. But if it was a option then, I would have bought it! Having Nintendo Land installed on the Wii U sounds great, because I always have to change CD when people are coming over. It would’ve been so much easier to have it installed, because it’s the game I play the most with people, along with ZombiU multiplayer ^^

  • Metal_Man_v2

    This is the bundle to buy for those that still haven’t got a Wii U and are interested.  I almost regret buying the Nintendo land bundle late last year.  Almost…

    • Sdudyoy

       I almost Regret buying one the day before yesterday… Nah.

  • Scott Duperree

     I notice it doesn’t mention a Nintendo Land digital download like the ZombiU budle has.  That might make this not worth it if you are planning to get both ZombiU and Monster Hunter 3.  Just noticing.

  • Toadlord

    Oh. Yes.

    Looks like I know what birthday present I’m getting myself. I knew holding out a bit would pay off! And Pikmin with be out just a bit after I get this.

  • This bundle is exclusive for europe right?

    • Johnny Star

      In the U.S. too

  • Is Monster Hunter a system seller, or is this all that Nintendo has to work with?

    • Chris Ojinaka

      The game is a major system seller in Japan, it was one of the games that defined the PSP over there back before the Vita and 3DS. Monster Hunter on Wii U will still sell system but most likely not as much as they expect. 

  • Carlos Rodríguez Núñez

    mmm, no nintendo land, should i get this or the zombi U bundle? tell me your opinions.

    • Laud

      If you have a gaming kind of family I would say go with Nland.

      If you’re more of a solo player that likes a challenge I would go with ZombiU.

      If you’re like me, you’d get both. 🙂

      • Johnny Star

         If you’re in the U.S. the Zombi U edition comes with the download of NintendoLand, so that would be the best bet, then just purchase the Monster Hunter game.

        • Carlos Rodríguez Núñez

          yes, you’re right thanks

    • Johnny Star

        If you’re in the U.S. the Zombi U edition comes with the download of
      NintendoLand, so that would be the best bet, then just purchase the
      Monster Hunter game.

  • Offens1

    Does the game support full gameplay on the gamepad?

    • Sidney Majurie

      yah, Gamepad only play if that’s what u mean.

      • Offens1

        yup thats it

  • Offens1

    Does the game support display to gamepad?

  • Woohoo, monster hunter mania soon!

  • Mario

    I want this game!

  • Dang it…. Bought my Wii U in December already!!

  • catsby

    This is good news! thank god i haven’t bought this console yet 🙂

  • I would probably go with this bundle and get ZombiU separately, in Europe we don’t have the NL download code and even if we did for me not that much needed I’m pretty much a solo gamer and my friends simply aren’t on Nintendo’s side since the GC so MH3U would be the best choice in my case.

  • id say this is Wii U’s killer app for now :] cant wait

  • Genesect4ssb4

    I’m pissed off. Because this is a better bargain. Nintendoland is fun, but this has online play. 

  • Jef Dinsmore

    I still haven’t gotten through the Wii version of this game…but am enjoying playing it.

  • Weeeeelllll fudge.  I would of gone with this bundle.  Oh if only I held out a little longer.  Very excited for Monster Hunter 3.
