Without too much bluster here are the details on the launch of Nintendo’s follow up console to the highly successful Wii. The Wii U will launch across Australia and New Zealand on November 30th.
The HD console will come in two flavours: The Wii U Basic Pack at the SRP AU $349.95 features a Wii U console with 8GB internal storage and a Wii U GamePad, both in white. The Wii U Premium Pack at the SRP AU $429.95 contains a black Wii U console and Wii U GamePad, and with 32GB of internal storage provides more space for downloadable digital content. The Premium Pack also contains a stand for the GamePad and console, a charging cradle for the GamePad, a sensor bar and the Nintendo Land software. Both packs also feature an HDMI cable and AC adapters for console and GamePad.
The Wii U Premium Pack also features a reward programme called Nintendo Network Premium that grants points for digital purchases in Nintendo eShop. Valued at around 10% of the original Nintendo eShop price, this credit can be used against future purchases once you reach a minimum of 500 points.
These include third-party heavy hitters such as FIFA 13 from Electronic Arts and Activision’s Call Of Duty: Black Ops II, Ubisoft’s ZombiU and RAYMAN LEGENDS as well as in-house titles like Nintendo Land and New Super Mario Bros. U. The Nintendo Direct presentation also revealed previously unannounced upcoming software titles exclusive to Wii U, such as Capcom’s Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate and BAYONETTA 2, developed by Platinum Games and published by Nintendo.
