New images have surfaced on Twitter of a New Super Mario Bros U Wii U bundle that also includes New Super Luigi U. This ad circular is taken from a toy store in Ireland called Smyths, which would be the equivalent of Toys R’ Us here in the United States. This bundle has not been confirmed by Nintendo of Europe yet, but given the front and center style of advertisement for this bundle, it’s likely true.

This sort of release makes perfect sense for the holiday season, but I’m surprised it’s not a New Super Mario 3D World bundle instead, since both of these games have been out for some time now. What do you think of the bundle? Let us know in the comments.


Thanks, Franky!

  • Keep Bundling Nintendo.. Works for the other systems so it should work for Nintendo too. $299 for a modern console and a game is a reasonable price

    “What do you think of the bundle? Let us know in the comments.”

    I think you should give one away for our Euro buddies πŸ˜› (When it’s confirmed… if it’s confirmed)

  • Koolcypher

    It’s a step in the right direction. However, like you mentioned, I would have liked a bundle with the new 3D Maio instead. Maybe in the US one is in the works.

  • Rugmouse

    This bundle really is a great value. We’re talking a $60 game, PLUS the $20 DLC here. Wow. With all of these bundles flying around, there should be a set for everybody interested in joining the Wii U Crew

    • Elitepwnsface

      Sure hope that game isn’t $60 still. I know Amazon has it for $45. But anyways i think its good for a console to come with a game. Shoot my N64 came backed with OOT and a second controller. So Nintendo is really doing there best this holiday to sell this console.

      • Pikachief

        It most likely is still $60. It takes nintendo YEARS to drop game prices if at all.

        • Elitepwnsface

          One of my most beef with Nintendo happens to be just that. I want to grab a few 3ds games but they have been out for a year now. Still $40 and its ridiculous.

    Wow a lot of bundles from Nintendo, so theres lots of decisions for people to buy

    • Tim van Broekhoven

      That can only be good gigigigigigi

  • Funkee Dynamite

    Although the games have been out for a while, its not likely that many people without a wii u have played NSMBU so much they dont want to play it anymore. I think the bundle is a good idea and it reminds me of getting a nes and snes with side scrolling Mario Bros games back in the day πŸ™‚

  • Step by step, Wii U is taking the market share it deserves and this surely helps.

  • Tim van Broekhoven

    Looks cool. Ik want it. But I already have a Wii U and NSMBU.

  • Andreas Sunde

    This, plus Nintendoland, plus a Pro Controller, plus a wiimote and a nunchuck. 349. Best bundle ever.

    • Tim van Broekhoven

      That whole bundle, plus Wind Waker HD, Mario 3D World, plus Rayman Legends, plus a panda = best bundle ever

      • Andreas Sunde

        A cynical panda, I presume?

        • Tim van Broekhoven

          Lol! But no… A living breathing fluffy black/white panda would be better. Or maybe a lama πŸ™‚ Lamas are cuteeeeeee

  • only god can judge me

    If they made a super mario 3d world bundle on nov 22 they definitely would have a system seller on their hands why not make a red wii u deluxe.

    • Tim van Broekhoven

      A red one!!!!!!! Yes that would be an instant buy for mii!!!! Woooohooooooo red ftw mensen

      • only god can judge me

        Lol that would be a dream come true unfortunately we will be stuck with the deluxe for awhile but I am excited to pick up my zelda windwaker deluxe bundle on sep 20.

        • Tim van Broekhoven

          Owww I’m jaleous… I already have a Wii U πŸ™ haha

          • TaintedXGamer

            I don’t so YAY! I Have Alot of OPTIONS! :P, In your face!…..well i need to save a lil bit more….. πŸ™

          • Tim van Broekhoven

            Wuh… :”(

  • BIG Franky

    i actually think bundling the older Mario game makes sense versus the new 3D Mario…that way, you can include the DLC seamlessly, inherently upping the value and marketability with 2 included games versus one…. also, this way, anyone thta buys this bundle will FOR SURE also be purchasing 3D Mario, wherein the opposite isnt as much of a sure thing.

    • Fred

      dead on big franky

    • bizzy gie

      I would rather have one 1 Mario 64 than two CODS.

  • Leo

    Smart move Nintendo!

  • Wren Justin Umlauf

    Wish this was out when I got my Wii U. Id much rather have this or The Wind Waker bundle than Nintendoland

  • Josiah Parsons

    I want a green Luigi edition Wii U!

  • devmiles

    wow, a bundle with mario-u, you kidding? about a year too late…

    • Igor

      That’s what you do with things you can’t sell. Gather it all and offer as a premium set.

  • Truthteller

    The Wii U is done

    • Donaald

      Cool story, bro.

    • NkoSekirei

      ignore this retard troll/posts a sign saying dont feed the trolls

  • Paul

    i like the wind waker bundle better. 3 more days until i get it :3

  • Merrfn

    Nintendo are really pumping out these bundles! Good to see.

  • Will McConnell

    Look at the bottom right of the box.. looks like Karaoke U is included too!

  • Ducked

    Remember when I predicted this months ago? Well, I was off about the Luigi DLC part.

  • Mochlum

    Not that good of an idea, IMO. Isn’t this Mario game that already hasn’t sold systems? I think a 3D World bundle would have made more sense…

  • Igor

    They’re doing it because the console isn’t selling well. Instead of packing hell inside a box, why don’t just start doing better games? And that Zenda bundle… come on, wtf is that. Digital book? Digital game? A paint in the gamepad that I myself could have done way better (and I mean it)? Please Nintendo, I’m begging you. Give me a fucking reason to buy your console. I was going to get the Zelda bundle till I saw the shit they’ve bundled up. Now, if they were to come up with some nice and shiny golden, red and blue bundle of Fire Emblem (with nice marks on both console and gamepad), with an art book, marth (or the main character of the game) statue, orchestrated songs on a cd, an ova in blu-ray, and who knows, a damm sword, I wouldn’t give a fuck about the price, I’d just get it on launch. People cares bout price, I know it, but I’m sure as hell they care more about the content they’re getting. So care about your costumers Iwat… cof Nitendo.

  • Alvaro CastaΓ±eda

    Damn!! Thats a pretty good bundle

  • Wiiluigi

    This sucks. I paid an extra 30 bucks for this game (super luigi u). Console gets a price redux to 299. I’m already out 80 bucks. Nintendo really needs to do an ambassador program for day one supporters.

  • Scott Duperree

    This bundle should have been out earlier! It is the year of Luigi, why wasn’t New Super Luigi U bundled until now?
