European Wii U Bundle Includes Mario Kart 8 and Splatoon

Nintendo of Europe has announced a Wii U bundle that includes two of the system’s biggest hits. Beginning October 30th, European fans who have held out on a Wii U can pick up a special bundle that includes Mario Kart 8 and Splatoon. The former will be pre-installed onto a 32 gig unit included while Splatoon comes as a download code.

Nintendo of Europe states that this bundle will be a limited time offer. No price has been announced, but European retailers tend to set their own prices on Nintendo hardware, so anything is possible. In the meantime, North America just got a 32 gig Wii U bundle that includes Mario Kart 8 and all of its DLC (as a download code).

Splatoon and Mario Kart 8 are two of the Wii U’s best performing games. Splatoon has crossed 1.6 million copies sold worldwide and Mario Kart 8 is the system’s best selling game, with an attach rate of over 50%. Two of Wii U’s upcoming AAA games from Nintendo, Star Fox Zero and The Legend of Zelda, are both delayed into 2016, meaning Nintendo will call upon their already-released hits to help carry the holiday season.
