Nintendo announced today that it will be cutting the price of the Wii U down to $299 starting September 20.
Currently, the ‘deluxe” version of the Wii U sells for $349.
Hero Complex reports that the deluxe version will still come with a copy of the game Nintendo Land as well as 32 gigabytes of storage.
Both of those features will still be included when the Wii U’s price gets cut to $299.
Nintendo also announced today that it would be releasing a limited edition Wii U bundle featuring The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD.
Joystiq reports that the Zelda bundle will also be available on Nintendo’s eShop September 20, in stores October 4, and will also be available for $299.
For gamers that don’t want to shell out $300, Nintendo unveiled the new 2DS. The Nintendo DS is an entry level version of the popular 3DS gaming system that will play all available 3DS games but in 2 dimensions.
The new system will be available starting October 12 for $129.
Nintendo writes in a press release: “Nintendo 2DS plays the entire library of packaged and downloadable games for Nintendo 3DS only in 2D.”
Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America’s president and COO, said: “Nintendo has one of the strongest and most diverse video game lineups in our history. Today we’re making those unique Nintendo experiences more accessible and affordable. However you play and whatever you play, Nintendo has you covered.”
