Earlier today, Nintendo announced their newest wave of discount offerings just in time for students returning to their respective classrooms. Students (and their parents, alike) will be able to take advantage of offers for both the Nintendo 3DS as well as the Wii U.
The company announced several keys discounts, such as bundles for Nintendo 3DS/2DS, amiibo and game bundles, as well as new Nintendo Selects titles.
These new savings will be available starting August 26th in North America.
Starting on Aug. 26, Nintendo rolls out a stellar set of offers for both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, including some of Nintendo’s biggest hits dropping to a suggested retail price of $19.99 each, like Animal Crossing: New Leaf andThe Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, as well as the debut of a new Mario-themed New Nintendo 3DS system that comes with the Super Mario 3D Land game pre-installed at the low suggested retail price of only $149.99. And starting on Sept. 9, five convenient bundles each packed with a select Wii U game and an amiibo figure will be available. All of these great deals make getting ready for school a much more entertaining (and affordable) process.
The new titles going into the Nintendo Selects collection for both the Nintendo 3DS and the Wii U are as follows:
- Animal Crossing: New Leaf — Nintendo 3DS
- Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon — Nintendo 3DS
- Tomodachi Life — Nintendo 3DS
- nintendogs + cats: Golden Retriever & New Friends — Nintendo 3DS
- LEGO® City Undercover: The Chase Begins — Nintendo 3DS
- The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD — Wii U
- Nintendo Land — Wii U
- LEGO® City Undercover — Wii U
Also on Aug. 26, a New Nintendo 3DS bundle that includes the system, the wildly fun Super Mario 3D Land game pre-installed and two extra interchangeable Mario-themed cover plates (one inspired by Mario and one featuring 8-bit renditions of classic Nintendo characters) will go on sale exclusively at Walmart and Target stores at a low suggested retail price of $149.99. New Nintendo 3DS is more compact than New Nintendo 3DS XL and also sports removable cover plates that let you customize the system’s look. New Nintendo 3DS is one of the most versatile video game systems out there, and this price (with an included game!) really can’t be beat. The suggested retail price is $50 less than the suggested retail price of any New Nintendo 3DS bundle previously offered.
Also going into the month of September, there will be even more savings made available.
Starting on Sept. 9, select Wii U games will be packaged with specific amiibo at a suggested retail price of only $39.99 each.
The titles that will be available in these bundle packages are as follows:
- Yoshi’s Woolly World – Pink Yarn Yoshi – Activates “Double Yoshi” in single-player mode, allows players to save favorite collected patterns to the amiibo figure
- Yoshi’s Woolly World – Light Blue Yarn Yoshi -Activates “Double Yoshi” in single-player mode, allows players to save favorite collected patterns to the amiibo figure
- Mario Party 10 – Peach – Play with and customize the amiibo in Party Mode
- Mario Party 10 – Bowser – Play with and customize the amiibo in Party Mode
- Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker – Toad – Unlocks a hide-and-seek challenge
These savings from Nintendo are a fantastic step in offering incredible value in the marketplace.
