A new Wii U hardware bundle containing two of Nintendo's global million-selling multiplayer games arrive as a limited offer premium pack. Containing a black Wii U Premium Pack console, the anti-gravity racing action of Mario Kart 8 and the colourful shooter Splatoon. It's the ideal bundle for anyone seeking instant fun.

•In Mario Kart 8, players speed up, down and all-round antigravity courses. With 32 new and remixed classic tracks to speed around, new items to unleash during the heat of the race, and a host of ways to enjoy the action including racing against other players, whether they're in the same room or on the other side of the world using 12-player online competitive play (internet connection required).
•A completely fresh take on the action shooter genre, Splatoon's online matches (internet connection required) pits two teams of four players against one another competing to claim turf by covering it in their team's colourful ink. After splatting opponents and covering a level with colourful ink, players can transform into squids and swim quickly through their own ink or use it to take cover and hide from enemies.

HOT - Great to be able to buy this on an argos card.
Reserved one. Is it worth the price?
You're getting the two best games on the system and a library of games which should (in theory) go down in price over the next year. Someone will probably comment on the NX releasing this year but if you are a fan of nintendo I don't think you can go wrong with this console.
Do you have the item no please? I can't get the link to work and I can't find it on the app or their website? Thanks
Sizzling time! and plenty of stock, for once. Now if amazon price matches I think plenty will bite. Thanks op. Argos will have to lower other Wii U bundles or they won't shift. Glad I'm off work just need to tell my 6 and 3/4 old we can go get it later...
Found it but out of stock at me 10 nearest stores, boys been saving for ages to get one and everywhere near us is out of stock for must bundles?!
Appears I got the last one available in York!

I feel obligated to go and buy it now.
Wow was in stock everywhere near me 30 mins ago. Now oos everywhere. Everyone is biting rather than posting. Good luck.
I have this being delivered today anyone know if it comes with a motion control or wii sports like the old wii did?
Sold out everywhere London now. Good deal but still far too much for a 3+ year old system with limited non-Nintendo games. Not too much cheaper than PS4 money.
Awww oos in all of birmingham stores
Any price matches?
I got it at £239 just after Xmas, worth every penny.
No matter how good the hardware and great the library of games, you will never convince the herd the Wii U is a sound investment. I however can think for myself and therefore could not recommend the Wii U enough. HOT.
Like most "fun" and "entertainment" products this is not an investment at all. It is pure fun and should be bought as such.

​The WiiU GamePad has motion controls built in. the wiimotes you used on your old Wii will also work with the Wii U. You can also play old Will game discs on the Wii U too including Wii Sports. It doesn't come with Wii Sports but Nintendo re-made it for Wii U with HD graphics and online play... you can get it on disc, digital download or even rent it for a few days by buying a pass. The Wii U's best family/friends multiplayer though is Nintendo Land... you should look out for that.
Got Splatoon and looking for some people to splat with? Mosey on over to the HUKD Splatoon Shoot-Out thread

Thanks for the reply I'm off in to town before it gets delivered to grab a few bits! I have 4 remotes for the old wii so that's good as kids loved sports. See it's still £30 online is it worth that for just better graphics? That Nintendo land does look good. Thanks again
Everyone near me is out of stock. Probably worth checking in two days, when everyobe who ordered but doesn't collect will have their reservations put back on the shelf.
Heat, got this for slightly more. Good value.

Note, my son tells me that to play the splatoon game properly you need a wii u pro controller

I don't know I never bought it myself, however, you can download a demo! When you get it setup, go to the eShop and go to the Demos & Free to Start section. You could also buy a 24 Hour Pass for it but hopefully the demo will give you a good idea of what it's like. Lots of other demos there for you to download too. You may need a to plug in a spare USB drive / SD card in a USB reader / USB hard drive in order to install these demos, unless you uninstall demos you are finished with before you install others.

You could look up Nintendo Land on eBay, but yes, it is very good indeed. Setup a Wii U alert on here or the HUKD app to get alerts of good prices on Wii U games. Most Wii U Wiimote games require WiiMote Plus, just so you are aware, but if you don't have these already, you can get Wiimote Plus add-ons very cheaply on eBay and they work fine in my experience.
Only one available anywhere near me is in Corby NN17 1RA. Hopefully someone close by can get it

That's down to personal choice.. most people tend to appreciate the motion controls using the GamePad. I seen a few people mention how they turned off motion controls but then gave them a chance and haven't looked back.

Best console out IMO, we had the x-box one which we sold as it sat gathering dust. Our son is the only one that plays the PS4 but the whole family play the WII U, Great family fun for all ages. Splatoon rocks!!

I play it fine with the game pad, can't say i've had any problems doing so. Feels natural to me.

Can you enlighten us on where you can get a brand new PS4 console for anywhere close to £200 ? Net alone one that comes with 2 top ranked games.

You can't use the Wii U Pro Controller for the online multiplayer mode though (I think the only mode you can use it on is the Battle Dojo 1v1 mode).



In case you're opposed to motion controls, overwhelmingly, the Splatoon player base (70-80%) uses motion controls. It's like the difference between someone using keyboard-only controls for an FPS versus someone using mouse and keyboard controls. At the end of the day though, whether you use motion controls or not is up to you.

Not a good price for a dead console with next to no new releases on the horizon. Surely they will plummet in price once Nintendo release its new console as well which is supposedly sometime this year.

Original thinking there!
