The Wii U will be released in the UK before it’s released in Japan. Nintendo’s next-gen console goes on sale November 30. Japan gets the Wii U a week later.
There will be two hardware bundles being released. The white Basic pack will include an 8GB Wii U console, one GamePad and a Stylus. The black Premium pack contains a 32GB Wii U, one GamePad, all the accessories featured in the Basic pack, plus extras such as a charging stand and a Premium subscription for discounted download games.
UK consumers that pick up the Premium pack will also get a copy of NintendoLand and a Wii Sensor Bar.
Buyers of the Basic pack can pick up a new accessory pack called the “Wii Remote Plus Additional Set”. It contains a Wii Remote Plus, Nunchuk and Sensor Bar.
The trade price for the Basic pack is £205, the Premium is £246 and the ZombiU version – which includes the Premium Pack and a copy of Ubisoft’s horror shooter ZombiU – has a cost price of £270.
