Holiday Wii U Console

Occasionally I like to take the time to highlight great Wii U game deals for those of you who may be looking to expand your collection. With the release of Mario Kart 8 still a few weeks away, if you’re looking for something to pass the time from now until then, check out these game deals from around the internet.


Wii U

Nintendo 3DS

Shop Nintendo

Shop Nintendo currently has the refurbished Wii U 32GB deluxe system with Nintendo Land available for only $200. This system comes with a full year warranty just like a brand new system. If you’re looking for a cheap way to buy into the Wii U ecosystem, this is the best way to do so as these are refurbished units directly from Nintendo.

If you want to beef up your Wii Remote Plus collection cheaply, Shop Nintendo also offers a Wii Remote Plus + Nunchuck bundle for only $20. You can choose either Black, Blue, or White as your colors.

    If you don’t have Rayman, BUY IT. That’s a steal.

    • Fred

      Yes Rayman Legends is an incredibly fun game!
      However the same needs to be said about Wonderful 101

      • palomino blue

        Only played the demo and didn’t really like it too much. But I’ve been told to just buy it because the demo is weak.

        • Flaskpelle

          Yeah, really, the demo for W101 is just crap, but once you play the game, gets used to the controls and the massive insanity going on at the same time, it sure is one of the most enjoyable games on wii u. It has some extreamly weird parts, like when you have to play as a robot that just won’t co-operate with you. But as long as you keep seeing the game as an animated series-kinda game you start accepting the randomness and learns to laugh along with it.

        • didn’t like the demo but I knew from Viewtiful Joe what I can expect from that game so I bought it and got fully satisfied. It’s one of the best Actiongames of the last years. It has some issues but you’ll get over it, as this game is just very charming, very detailed and just crafted with love. I actually even wrote a Review on my blog (one of 4 reviews in total ;D you can check it out too if you really need any more excuses to get that game: have fun =)

          I was going to buy it day 1, then I played the demo and decided to hold off. Then several months ago I found it at Best Buy for $30 and decided to gamble on it. WOW! That demo KILLED the game because the game is WAY BETTER than the demo!

  • Petri

    Deus Ex, W101 and Resident evil totally worth it.

  • ActivesiN

    Pickup Deus Ex, Wonderful 101, assassins creed blackflag, and Rayman Legends
    all awesome games

    • twointhepink

      This guy gets it

    • Fred

      Rayman Legends and Wonderful 101 are the 2 of the 3 best Wii U games!

  • Tantalum

    I’ve been waiting for Deus Ex to go down in price for quite a while now. Thank the lord!

    • Archiq09

      I havz when ebgame sale it at 19,99$ and wiiu version is so better and more hard.

    • Rinslowe

      You won’t be disappointed. Game pad support is great.

  • Sam

    Ugh no Wii U games I want there but I’d get all three of the 3DS games.

    • Fred

      Rayman Legends and Wonderful 101 are AWESOME

  • Fred

    I might have to grab 1 more controller with that price

  • Tyrone Hope

    If been looking for ways to pass the time from now until Mariokart 8 iv bought a 3ds and about 10 games, bunch of Wii u games, and also a 60tv with a surround sound system all in the last 2 months for MarioKart 8!! I’m more than ready!

  • Rinslowe

    Might be be that crash hot of a deal for us long time owners, with half those titles already. Duh, obviously.
    But someone picking up a Wii U for Kart for eg, might be quietly happy about these deals…

  • steveb944

    I own all those titles and I recommend all of them, especially with that great pricing.

    Wish I could have bought my remotes at that price as well.

  • D.M.T

    I want to buy Deus Ex but I need an external hard drive first…

  • greengecko007

    For anyone who was even thinking about any of these games, these are steal prices. Assassin’s Creed 4 is an amazing game, Black Ops II has one of the best campaigns in the series, and Rayman is a high quality platformer. I have no interest in The Wonderful 101, but that game is priced great too.

  • McBlink

    Picked up Black Ops 2 last week and I’m really enjoying it. I feel so dirty.

  • HollyJOsborne

    Deus Ex, W101 and Resident evil totally worth it.

  • CoD: Black Ops II and Batman: Arkham Origins… Deus Ex is an option.

  • McBlink

    Anybody have thoughts on Splinter Cell? Last one I played was Chaos Theory on Xbox original.

    • WiiUltra

      I thought it was a great game. They are using a lot of military terms and such during the story and they talk really fast so it can be a bit confusing haha. The only bad thing is the online play. Maybe there aren’t enough people but most of the times I just could not find a match or even anyone, espescially on the 4E co-op missions. I give it 8/10, just because online sucks, and the load times are incredibly long.

  • Diaz

    Just ordered Legends, Human Rev, and Black Ops! can’t wait

    • RecheDiazrivarola

      call of duty and deus ex

      • Diaz

        Are they good?

  • Tim van Broekhoven

    Just got Deus Ex for €12 and AC4 for €18 🙂

  • Fufusio

    Probably a stupid question but I’ll go with it anyway, are any of those games PAL? Or are they all NTSC

    • GariNGB

      There are a few Wii U PAL bargains on here dude. ZombiU for example, is only £4.95 –

      • Fufusio

        Cheers man I didn’t even know about that site, and they ship to NZ win! 🙂

        • GariNGB


      • Petri

        Thank you, been looking for Arkham City for less than 20€, and this is selling it for about 10€ including shipping.

        • GariNGB

          Nice! keep an eye on that site as they seem to have bargains all the time.

  • Donaald

    Out of all of those:

    Rayman, excellent, even eurogamer agrees that the definitive version is on Wii U
    Deus Ex, probably the best use of the gamepad in the Wii U, ever
    Wonderful 101, looks casual but it’s not safe for casuals

    Monster Hunter 3-U, an already excellent game in 1080p 60 frames per second and has the best online community.
    Assassin’s Creed IV, I got tired of the series so I can’t review it without being unbiased
    Arkham Origins, mostly brawling, riddler’s lame, has more bugs than a haunted corpse, I would pass
    Resident Evil, can’t review it.
    Splinter Cell: Nice, underrated game, probably a must have for Wii U owners, has cool gamepad features, better resolution but lacks local multi-player, only the PC version is better than it, although it doesn’t have any of the gamepad features.

  • Noteak

    Thank goodness, last night when I found this article I was going to get assassin’s creed 4 but it was out and said it would restock on the 12. Luckily it lied. 🙂

  • Michael Ocampo

    Isn’t Mario Golf already at that price?
