According to NeoGAF user Marc 0, French store Carrefour is stocking the New Super Mario Bros. U and New Super Luigi U Wii U bundle that we reported on earlier this year on November 8th. The retail price for the bundle is €279 and it was first outed by Irish retailer Smyths. There’s no word on if this bundle will arrive in the United States or the rest of the world, but it’s a sweet deal for those that will have it.

Hopefully we’ll see more of these bundles around the holiday season.

  • isn’t it a bit late to be bundling these games? Why not bundle something new?

    • nin-10-doughfan

      there are some who do not have a wii u yet and it will be a good deal for those who are starting to have a game console especially a wii u!

      • true, and I get that, but I dunno. I still feel like Nintendo Land was a really good pack in

    • Ballzbeard

      A lot of people still don’t own a Wii U and therefore don’t own these games. I’m sure we’ll see a couple more bundles as the holiday approaches.

      • yeah, we’ll prolly see more :3

    • Keep in mind this bundle is for France and possibly Europe. The Wii U adoption rate there has been abysmal, so it makes sense for the region to have what Nintendo considers its two best games available in a bundle.

      • nin-10-doughfan

        i see! thanks for enlightening us!

      • Fred

        So is Wii U selling the best in the US? or is it just not selling well anywhere?
        Has it been selling a lot better since the price cut?

        • iamserious

          It is selling best in the US and has been selling better since the price drop. 🙂

          • Fred

            Do we know how much better it’s selling now? I’m very happy to hear it’s selling better and i hope they sell like crazy between now and Christmas!

          • iamserious

            About twice as much now which is good but not great. I’m sure by Christmas they will be selling even better. I’m thinking Wii U will hit the 5 mil mark by the end of the year.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Far as figures go, it hasn’t hit 4 yet. They aren’t always reliable, but we don’t have exact figures yet.

    • BIG Franky

      why bundle it with the new Super Mario 3D game when anyone interested in that game, who doesnt have a Wii U yet, would buy this bundle AND THEN buy the new game at full price? it makes perfect sense from a marketing standpoint.
      I hope they release other bundles like this in the states… something for everyone and we all know Mario sells consoles.

      • THAT makes most sense. Good point

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        That would make more sense.

    • Ducked

      Why bundle new games? People are more likely to buy new games then old games, so why would you include those games with the system? NSMBU is only a year old, and New Super Luigi U is only 2 months old. This gives a chance to have Wii U owners play the older games.

  • Ony

    I see thousand of bundles, meanwhile, in japan, Wii U sold only 4k this week D:
    (122k for 3DS at least)

    • Theiz Zzee

      I am sure many are waiting on the new bundle there to be released.

    • Yoboyjohn

      Price cut hasn’t taken effect there yet

  • Psytrix


  • Yobrolo

    This wont save the wii U. Lets see if anything can.But I doubt it.

    • Noteak

      Everyone need to take a couple steps back and not respond to this.

      • Yobrolo

        why did you respond then ? eh

    • Elem187

      No one game will save a console. Its a collection of many interesting exclusives that will sell consoles… this holiday season the library will look more impressive and will sell more consoles than last holiday season did.

      • Yobrolo

        I think it will be hard because wii u Is seen as last gen and ppl want something new. And that is ps4 xbox one

  • Carlos Coronado

    I will love to have a bundle with X from MONOLITH SOFTWARE INC or even better a bundel with super smash bros but with a nintendo game pad desing

  • Wiiluigi

    Why? they should wait two weeks and do a mario 3d pack.

  • Shota

    €279 seriously!? damn people are lucky they get a premium edition with new super mario bros u PLUS new luigi u.

  • Lusunup

    Honestly why isn’t there any more white models wish they would of just sticked with one color because some of us with white models want white stands, white charging cradle, white pro controllers … because I can’t find anymore.. black is lame all next gens are black colored. Im sticking up for all the people who have a basic wii u because they either ran out of luck on preorders, or just liked the color white more.

    • Superstick98

      IKR? I want all my stuff white. I was gonna get a white pro controller to match but whatever.. -.- I guess It’s gone. :/

    • Leo

      I wish they would release those translucent colors from the N64 lol. Those were the days! 😀

    • MewThree28

      I still don’t have a Wii U because of the scrapped white models. I was waiting for a white deluxe set or something to come to the states because of what the white 32 gb in Japan.
      Turns out I waited too long and the Basic units are all gone.

      Hopefully Nintendo will bring back the white Wii U and it will include everything that the deluxe set does (but all white accessories of course).

      I was totally against how the basic didn’t come with AT LEAST a White Console stand.

    • for me can be like sht color.
      mine is white. 😛

      • Elem187

        Love the white consoles.. and when you plug in a $50 1,500 gb harddrive, it becomes a far superior console to the black ones for the same cost (before price cut)

        I wasn’t a big fan of nintendoland anyways.. i rented it and sent it back after a couple of hours of play.

    • Smooching

      Yes, your comment exactly matches my thoughts about this. I really hope they make more bundles that also include a White Premium Wii U and possibly the other colors rumored at http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2013/10/rumour_cherry_and_mango_wii_u_colours_outed_by_toys_r_us_france .

      I have tried the Wii U at an event, and they had the white Wii U, and I thought it was very pretty, especially the gamepad. It looks fresh and exiting, it made it stand out to the other consoles. They even had a White Wii U Pro Controller attached at the Sonic Lost World tryout (Although it was somehow not working according to the guy?), however, I have yet to see that device in my country… -__-

      It really is the single reason I have not bought a Wii U yet. I even already bought a few games for the Wii U (limited edition versions that I really wanted in a box such as New Super Luigi U).

  • Guhtere

    They’re making a whole lot of Wii U bundles. How many have been released now?

    • Noteak

      You posted that right before I did

  • Noteak

    uh why are there some many bundles, maybe they should but all the bundles together and take out all the excess Wii U’s

  • Ducked

    That’s a $389.99 value for $299.99 if it comes to NA.

  • MewThree28

    Do you guys think they will bring back the White Wii U and possibly make it into a 32 gb model? I’ve been holding off on a Wii U mostly cause of the only black color being available now and the lack of games it has had.

    • Leo

      They already did in Japan… its only a matter of time before they do it in the rest of the world.

      • MewThree28

        When i heard about that back in (i think) June, I was getting all happy for the same thing to come to North America as well. But it’s a matter of time,
        I bet once they sell all WWHD bundles they will bring the White one back

    • Shota

      i think its coming soon. japan has it with a great deal!

  • The True Gamer

    Make it $149 and you got a deal!

  • Is_Mort

    I paid 350 +30$ tax for Wii U + NintendoshitLand. I’ll never support a new Nintendo product again.

    • Hulkamania

      I bought the Zelda bundle… it is actually a great bundle. I’ll continue to support Nintendo.

    • Elem187

      Uhm, ALL consoles always drop in price, idiot… I purchased mine at full price, big whoop it happens.

  • Hulkamania

    Call me crazy… but I think that Nintendo and Sega have such good relationship with each other that maybe Nintendo and Sega should work together to put out special edition Sega versions of the Wii U console bundled with Sega developed games. That would be awesome.

    • Shota

      it can happen. they are like brothers. A Blue Sonic Wii U…..
