Understand if old



I was the guy who originally posted this image. For the record:
  • There's no price in the catalog, so I don't know if this will be $299, like the Zelda bundle.
  • I'm 90% sure it's legit. Don't think Smyths would have put something in their Winter catalog if they weren't 100% sure it was going to exist.
  • The box also says "+ Bonus Videos". Not sure if that means videos of people playing the Mario games (like those posted by Nintendo on Miiverse) or trailers of upcoming games. Just something to thing about.
  • I can't make out if the photo says "2 Games Included!" or "2 Game Preinstalled!". The picture in the brochure is super low quality. I sent an email to Smyths, they might send me on a higher quality pic.
Here's another image:


Just saw this on Twitter; apparently from a big toy shop named Smyths (Ireland)

Very nice bundle. To be honest, that's how I feel Wii U should have launched in first place. We've had a bit too much NSMB lately, but if it came as a bundled game people surely would have seen it a bit differently.

Nintendo would be foolish to not make this happen. Wind Waker is cool and all, but this seems like it would do more to appeal to the wider market.

Awesome. Awesome, really, I didn't want to get Zelda or Nintendo Land, this is the one I'll buy.

This is what the Wind Waker bundle should have been. I'm sure more people would prefer two solid platformers rather than a mediocre Zelda they played 10 years ago, but that's just me.

It seems like a good move. This should be an attractive bundle for lots of people at the right price. Holidays will be interesting times for Nintendo!

Is New Super Luigi Bros U a different game than NSMB-U? Serious question.
It's a standalone game / expansion pack featuring Luigi (and Co.) with 82 completely redesigned, shorter levels, an identical world map, and the same bosses.

Basically, it's a game that challenges you as each course needs to be completed within 100 seconds.

It's DLC, but the physical version doesn't require NSMBU. It's the same overworld and the same themes, but the levels are completely different. They're shorter, much, much harder and more inventive, they get straight to the point. Great game/DLC.
EDIT: Beaten.

Luigi game has a brand new level for each level in Mario Bros.

They are shorter. You get 100 second time. Luigi can jump higher and but it's harder for him to stop from a dash.

I'm sure those are both digital, but that's a hell of a bundle, considering how much game you get between the two.

Also I wonder what the U logo on the back of the box will look like.

Not likely, especially in Europe.
The casuals don't give a shit about specs. Why would they buy a PS4 for 400 dollars with no game when they can buy a Wii U with Mario for under 300? You also seem to be forgetting about the 3DS, which will probably sell better than all three consoles combined.
 

I'M FINISHED!

Um exCUSE me Sakurai but CLEARLY the best choice for Smash Bros would be my fav niche character HOWEVER you are clearly INCOMPETENT and

There's something really sexy about a Nintendo console box with Mario on it, moreso when the game's inside.

Echoing the statements that this should have been done earlier. Like, launch.

Really nice bundle for those who haven't jumped in. Could be big with families this Christmas.
