The day Australians and Europeans have been waiting for, Friday, November 30, 2012, has finally come! Nintendo of Australia and Nintendo of Europe has now launched the new Nintendo home console, the Wii U, and its slew of Wii U launch games, including the launch of New Super Mario Bros. U and Nintendo Land! Grab your console and your anticipated Wii U launch games and start playing!
The Wii U in Australia will run you $349.95 for the White – Basic Set (8GB) or $429.95 for the Black – Deluxe Set (32GB) with Nintendo Land included. New Super Mario Bros. U and Nintendo Land will both run you about $80 each, either in retail or digital. If you go digital, then New Super Mario Bros. U will take up 2GB and Nintendo Land will take up 3.2GB (Warning: Nintendo Land will NOT fit in Wii U Basic Set). NOTE: Game prices vary in Australia. For Europeans, the prices are up to the retailers, so check your European local stores for more information on pricing for the systems and the games.
As most of you are leaning towards the Deluxe Set, you should have no problem. It is also worthy to note that a USB drive is recommended if you plan to download a lot. We plan to have guides and secrets up shortly for New Super Mario Bros. U and Nintendo Land, along with Paper Mario: Sticker Star, which is now complete! Enjoy your new Wii U console and games, especially New Super Mario Bros. U and Nintendo Land!
Let us know in comments if you got yourself a Wii U or waiting until Christmas!
