Hitting retail just in time for the all-important Holiday Season, comes a new “ongoing” Wii U bundle pack.
It honestly seems a little odd that this isn’t a Super Mario Maker bundle pack, but then again, that game’s a sure sale for anyone buying into Nintendo’s latest hardware. I mean, people are buying Wii U’s just to play that and only that, so it might seem almost silly to include it as a pack-in.
Instead, what prospective buyers will be getting is Mario Kart 8, which is oddly enough, yet another ‘must buy’ for anyone with a Wii U. Gotta do something though right? The box holds the Wii U, plus a pre-installed copy (yep, digital) of Mario Kart 8, as well as a download voucher for the two doses of DLC for the game.
I’m a little disappointed that there isn’t a physical copy in there, but what are you gonna do. It’s the age that we live in. That aside though, it’s a pretty good deal. And as I mentioned, MK8 is one of the absolute best games on the console, so to get it as a pack-in is pretty great.
Plus, it leaves you free to buy a copy of Super Mario Maker separately. Two Mario games for the price of one really.
