Nintendo announces two big moves for September 20th; a $50 price drop for its Wii U Deluxe set to retail at $299.99 and the launch of limited-edition $299.99 Zelda Wii U bundle ahead of PS4 and Xbox One launch. New Nintendo 2DS Portable for $129.99 is also coming on October 12th.
Nintendo has announced big plans for this holiday season. It is going to lower the price of its Wii U Deluxe set by $50. The next-generation gaming console will be available to purchase at $299.99 starting September 20th. On same day, Nintendo is also going to launch its all new limited-edition Zelda Wii U bundle set that features The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD at retail price of $299.99 again.
Lowering the Wii U price to $299.99 will help the firm to boost the sale of gaming console and to compete with rivals Sony and Microsoft. This price drop is coming ahead of Xbox One and PS4 launch. It will make Wii U to sale on $100 less than PS4 and $200 less than Xbox One. A good choice for people on budget. This Nintendo Wii U 2013 console is featuring big titles like Pikmin 3, The Wonderful 101, EarthBound, New Super Luigi U, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, Super Mario 3D World and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze.
Third big announcement by the gaming firm for this holiday season is the launch of a dedicated entry-level Nintendo 2DS portable console on Oct. 12 at retail price of $129.99. It will allow gamers to play more than 2,000 Nintendo DS and also Nintendo 3DS games in 2D via dual screens, game-play controls, touch-screen and more features. Pokémon X and Pokémon Y are also launching on the same day. Nintendo has also announced many new Nintendo 3DS, Wii U and third-party titles of Q4 games.
