Nintendo Announces Mario & Luigi Themed Wii U Bundle

The Wii U saw a huge boost last month when Nintendo paired its console with one of their biggest franchises; The Legend of Zelda.  Taking that cue, Nintendo has crafted a new Wii U Deluxe Set for North America that features what are arguably two of the industries biggest mascots; Mario and Luigi.

This new bundle will retail for the current price of $299.99 and will come bundled with New Super Mario Bros. U and New Super Luigi U, which will both be included on one disk.  The current Wii U Deluxe Set that contains Nintendo Land will be discontinued.  Meanwhile, the The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD Wii U Deluxe Set Bundle will be available while supplies last.

Wii U Deluxe Set-Mario&Luigi

“Mario and Luigi are two of the biggest heroes in video games,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “This new Wii U configuration gives people instant access to not one, but two of the most well-received Wii U games. It’s another example of the tremendous value and variety that Nintendo is offering consumers this holiday season.”

Both New Super Mario Bros. U and New Super Luigi U are some of the highest rated games available on Wii U.  Getting both included with the console is actually a pretty sweet deal.  Of course, both games are still available separately at retail or on the Nintendo eShop should they not want to get this bundle.

This Mario and Luigi themed Wii U Deluxe Set will hit store shelves on November 1.
