Nintendo may not have dropped the Wii U's price by any significant amount, but they're certainly making up for it with these cost efficient bundles. Today Nintendo revealed an epic Skylanders SWAP Force Wii U bundle, which includes a Skylanders SWAP Force starter pack in addition to a white Wii U basic and Nintendo Land bundle -- all for $300. That's right, it's all for the same price that a standalone Wii U costs.
This isn't the first Wii U bundle to add extra value through game bundling. Last month Nintendo bundled The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD with a special edition Wii U for just $300. Also, we now know that going forward the base Wii U bundle will no longer include Nintendo Land and instead bundle New Super Mario Bros. U and New Super Luigi U -- a much greater value for the same old price.
None of those bundles really holds a candle to this white Wii U and Skylanders SWAP Force bundle, though. The Wii U Skylanders SWAP Force starter pack usually costs $75, but this one includes an exclusive color-shifted Wash Buckler figurine. Nintendo Land has been priced at $30. Sure, the basic white Wii U was discontinued and doesn't include much storage, but it's still a Wii U. Overall, this is great value for kids hyped about Skylanders and maybe Mario too.
Nintendo's Skylanders SWAP Force Wii U bundle will be launching November 15 for $299.99, just in time to start thinking about purchasing Super Mario 3D World too.
