Wii U Price Cut And Release Dates!

Yesterday we found out about the new 2DS model of Nintendo’s popular handheld, and today we get some Wii U price cut news! If you’ve been holding off on the Wii U for some odd reason, now looks like as good a time as any to pick one up. Nintendo just recently announced that the system will be dropping in price. From $349.99 down to $299.99, which while it may not seem like a huge jump, means you can easily pick up a Wii U and a game for the price of the original system.

Oh wait it gets better, the Wind Waker HD bundle will be the same price!
