Best Buy will have Splatoon Wii U bundles on May 29


If somehow over the past three years, none of Nintendo’s excellent Wii U titles have managed to convince you to grab a Wii U, Nintendo and Best Buy are offering an exclusive Splatoon Wii U bundle available only in stores and on The bundle will be available on May 29, which is when the game releases. You’ll get a Wii U Deluxe console, as well as a download code for Splatoon and Nintendo Land is pre-installed. The bundle will launch for $299.

This is the first time we’ve seen a retailer specific bundle for the Wii U, which is an interesting move for Nintendo. A Super Smash Bros. bundle was expected but never delivered here in the United States, so it’s nice to see Nintendo hasn’t given up on hardware bundles for new converts. If Splatoon looks like your type of game, perhaps this is the bundle for you.
