Black Friday deals round-up for Wii U owners


Everyone knows that Black Friday is the best time to buy any video games or accessories, since retailers and manufacturers are trying to take advantage of the shopping craze this time of year induces. This year is no different, with several great deals available on Wii U consoles, games, and accessories. Check these out to find deals you don’t already have.

Nintendo eShop Sale


As we already announced earlier this week, Nintendo is having a big sale on its eShops for both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS this year. The deals are scheduled to go live today, with some discounted as much as 50% from their normal price. Nintendo made a point of announcing some games starting at $5, so be sure to check out the eShop on Wii U and 3DS to see what deals are live. We’ll have a more comprehensive post listing these titles once the deals are put up later today.

And the deals are now live! Check them all out here.

Get the Splatoon/Smash Wii U bundle for $250

If you’ve yet to buy a Wii U, this is THE bundle you’ll want to get. Target is currently offering the latest Wii U bundle featuring Splatoon and Super Smash Bros. for only $250. That’s a steal for getting two of the biggest games on Wii U right now right inside the bundle. You’ll have to buy from Target on eBay to get the deal, but believe us, it’s definitely worth it.

*Quick Note* Walmart is offering the same bundle for the same price, if you prefer to buy from them.

Get Super Mario Maker for $50 from Amazon

This deal is only good for Amazon Prime members. If you add Super Mario Maker to your cart right now and you have Prime, you’ll see a promotional discount applied to your cart bringing the price down to just $50. That’s a pretty great price for a game that hasn’t been out but for two months and is still expected to receive updates well into next year.

Get Splatoon for $34.99 from Best Buy

You can get Splatoon even cheaper at $27.99 if you’re a member of Best Buy’s Gamer’s Club Unlocked, so this is a great deal for anyone who has that service. Other games on discount include titles for the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One, so be sure to check out those deals, too.

Some of these deals might not be live until actual Black Friday, so keep that in mind if you click and don’t see the lower price.
