Nintendo Has Nine Hardware Bundles


It’s safe to say that Nintendo is a tad bit desperate. With the recent releases of the Playstation 4 and Xbox One, Nintendo has seemingly been put on the back burner when it comes to gamer’s attention. That hasn’t stopped the company from trying to put its best foot forward this holiday season by offering nine hardware bundles for consumers.

Nintendo has three Wii U bundles, two 3DS XL bundles, a 3DS bundle, two 2DS bundles and a Wii Mini bundle. You can view the details for each bundle below.

The Mario and Luigi Wii U Deluxe Bundle

For $299.99, the Mario and Luigi Wii U bundle comes with a 32GB Wii U console, and is packaged with two games: New Super Mario Bros. U and New Super Luigi U.

The Legend of Zelda Wii U Deluxe Bundle

If Zelda is your cup of tea, then you can get the same 32GB console, but with a copy of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD instead of the two Mario games. It’s the same price as the Mario & Luigi bundle, but only comes with a single game. The game pad also has some cool Zelda-themed patterns on it.

The Skylanders Wii U Basic Bundle

If your getting your Wii U simply for the kids, then the Skylanders bundle may be right up your alley. This bundle comes with a white 8GB, a copy of Skylanders: Swap Force, the character figures and the power portal used to transfer the figures into the game. This bundle, like the others, runs at a price of $299.99

The Mario and Luigi 3DS XL Bundle

Heading over to the hand-held side of the Nintendo consoles, the company has put together a few 3DS and 2DS bundles for gamers this holiday season. The first hand-held bundle is a Mario & Luigi 3DS XL pack that comes with a specially designed 3DS XL console, and a copy of Mario & Luigi Dream Team preinstalled on the hardware. This bundle will run players $199.99.

The Legend of Zelda 3DS XL Bundle

The second 3DS XL bundle includes a copy The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds that is acquired via a special download code inside the box. Players get an awesome looking console that is half-black, half-white and includes to Triforces on the outside of the system. The price tag is a little higher than the Mario Bros. bundle, $219.99, but the system itself looks much nicer.

The Luigi’s Mansion 3DS Bundle

The only regular 3DS bundle put together by Nintendo involves everybody’s favorite brother, Luigi. This bundle includes a normal blue 3DS, and a pre-installed copy of Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon. It has a cost of $169.99.

The Pokémon X and Y 2DS Bundles

The only 2DS bundles of the season include copies of Pokemon X and Y pre-installed. The Pokemon X bundle will only be sold at Target, and comes with the game and a red 2DS. The Pokemon Y bundle comes with a blue 2DS, and can only be found at Toys R Us. These bundles sell for $149.99.

The Wii Mini

For those who don’t want the new hardware, you can go for the old with a Wii Mini console. For $99.99 you get the red and black Wii Mini console, and a copy of Mario Kart: Wii.
