In a press release by Nintendo today, the company announced that it will be replacing  the base 32gb Wii U Deluxe’s pack-in game, Nintendo Land with both New Super Mario Bros. U and its standalone expansion, New Super Luigi U. It is interesting to note that the bundle will include two games rather than one, for the price of $299. The  two games will also arrive on one disc with this specific bundle. This bundle will arrive at stores on November 1 in North America for $299, and it currently has not been announced for any other region. With the holidays coming up and the release of Super Mario 3D World on the horizon, this bundle seems to be perfect for the value, and should hopefully attract more people to pick up the Wii U.

    Sounds awesome. Gonna get WWHD bundle, but it's still sweet

    It makes me sad to see Nintendo Land get the shaft to be fair.

    It's a great piece of software that honestly showcases a lot of the potentials of the Wii U. It's a shame that people lumped it into the "Wii" mini game series.

    Nintendo Land had a lot of charm, and it serves as a great introductory to games such as Zelda, F-Zero, even Metroid. So to see it get shelved in the bundle is sad. I hope they slash the price on the software, cause my concern is that people won't pick it up if it isn't included with the system.

    At the end of the day I suppose it's the safer business decision on Nintendo's part, Super Mario Bros. is a classic and it will certainly entice people on the fence.

    Yes. This is the kind of stuff Nintendo needs to do. The only way to get out of this slump is to be aggressive.
