This is out of stock in the UK, and going for crazy prices.

Amazon.fr appear to have some back in stock (this happened on Saturday as well) and are selling them at retail price.

Postage to UK adds a little - but means it's possible to get this in time for Christmas without being totally fleeced!

Total price to get the item delivered to the UK is £57 with a delivery estimate of 20th-22nd. Faster delivery available for a bit more if that's cutting it a bit fine for you!

Yeah - gutted to miss that deal. Even more gutted to see this in stock on Amazon.fr Saturday AM, but have it sold out again in the couple of minutes it took me to get through the checkout!

How much is postage tho? Should really be added to total cost as it's going to cost an additional few quid at least.

OK, your description says 'postage adds a little' which seemed to suggest you hadn't included it in the £57 - how much are the postage costs from Amazon France?

Yep - spelled it out a bit more now, I just meant that is why it isn't quite as cheap as UK retail price.

OK I see that now you mention it, sorry for the misunderstanding.

bit worried it now says out of stock

I wouldn't worry too much. I paid £30 for Smash bros and 24 for the adapter from this very site yesterday so sure something else will pop up soon.

I just grabbed this myself. I was about to post it till i saw this ^^

Hot. I bought a non-special version for myself but I'm giving that to my sister instead for christmas.

Still showing as "En stock" for me

Probably Amazon.fr, it's a back order though: amazon.fr/gp/…new

Comes in at EUR 25,61 delivered to UK which i think is actually just under £21.

Ah okay. No guarantee of that coming into stock though, don't really trust Amazon with back orders and pre orders. Thanks

Not if you have UK Prime (I have UK Prime and wasn't able to get free delivery).

If they have Prime in France and you have that, then probably!

Cheers, would be cool if amazon france do a free prime trial at the moment... would work out cheaper than the UK if you could even buy it here.

100% correct sir - there seems to be a fair few options doing the rounds at the moment. Ironically, I still havent actually bought a Wii U yet...

Cheer matt

Know what you mena Leon, I bought some 3DS games a year ago and still don't own one. Worth waiting though, with the New 3DS out soon.

You might want to try to get a Zelda Wii U edition, especially if you haven't played the Wind Waker or want to. Has better resell value, the gamepad's got a Zelda design too.

It says it has some in stock but google translates part of the page to 'out of stock, bit confused.

Also I take it this would be (disc wise) the same as the UK one with English audio an option?

All PAL discs are the same. The game will most likely load up the language your console is set to.

I'd really like to see you getting a free International delivery, let us know when that happens.

What about things like paper instructions and Nintedno points card inside the game case, whould that be in French or English?

I'm guessing it will either be a french manual, or it will be like most manuals and cover different languages. I don't know about that one, and I don't have any wiiu games to check it.

Not sure about the points card at all sry.

Seems amazon.fr has run out of copies. I can confirm though they did fulfill orders as mine is now marked as dispatched.

I'm waiting fot the adapter to come back in stock in the UK shouldn't be long now, I remember when the Wii came out they where changing hands for silly money then just before christmas every where had them in stock.

Yep - all gone now. Mine's been dispatched, eta of tomorrow - fingers crossed!

Thanks OP.
Ordered this yesterday and it is suppose to come tomorrow.
Made use of my Caxton Euro card (had enough to pay for it).

I ordered it yesterday but it's still saying it's being picked. Nearly 24 hours and it's still not dispatched. Anyone had experience with Amazon who might know whether I should cancel it or not?

For the price they were charging you could have bought four wireless gamepads cheaper, especially if you sold any gamecube controllers you now wouldn't need.

Arrived.

It's pretty much the UK version, I assume all EU versions are the same. The return address is even for UK Amazon.

Mine arrived too.
