Nintendo ups its game with Wii U bundle featuring Mario, Luigi

The new bundle will be available November 1 and include New Super Mario Bros. U and New Super Luigi U.


Here comes Nintendo.

The game company announced on Wednesday that it will start selling a Wii U Deluxe Set bundle that will include two popular titles, the new Super Mario Bros. U and Super Luigi U. The games will come on a single disc and sell at the console's new retail price of $300.

Since the Wii U's launch last year, Nintendo has offered a deluxe set bundle that comes with Nintendo Land. This new offering replaces that set; Nintendo says it'll start selling Nintendo Land for $29.99 when it's officially replaced.

Nintendo's Wii U has faced more than a little trouble attracting customers around the world. Since the company dropped the price on its console, however, sales have gone up, according to research firm NPD. And with help from Mario and Luigi, things might get better as Nintendo prepares to take on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One next month.

The new Wii U deluxe set goes on sale on November 1.
