The next-gen Nintendo Wii U console is nearly here and in order to get those old Wii units off the shelves, Nintendo have not only dropped the price of the Wii, but they've also thrown in two classic Wii games.
Nintendo have priced the Wii at a competitive $129.99, which includes the black model of the Wii console, Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort on the single disk, as well as throwing in the black Wii Remote Plus and Nunchuck controller. Before this deal, gamers would need to purchase the New Super Mario Bros. Wii model in order to get the black edition of the console.
Nintendo's Wii U console launches on November 18 in the US, November 30 in Europe and Australia and December 8 in Japan. Scott Moffitt, EVP of Sales & Marketing at Nintendo of America has said:
Nearly six years after it launched, people are still attracted to the pure, inclusive fun of the Wii console. A new suggested retail price and the inclusion of two great games make it an easy choice for families looking for a great value this holiday season.
Nintendo will make the new bundle available on October 28.
