In an effort to keep the Wii U a profitable console and grow sales, Nintendo has released a brand new Wii U console with Mario Kart 8 already downloaded on the console. Along with Mario Kart 8, new Wii U owners will also receive an ecard in order to download two DLCs for Mario Kart 8. All is available at $299 right now.
This new offer from Nintendo comes as not long ago they hit the 10 million mark for consoles sold. They are hoping that with the addition of one of their highest selling games, they can grow that number even higher. Realistically though, those numbers won’t even touch PS4 sales.
However, the other game announcement Nintendo is hoping will grow sales is that Super Mario Maker is set to make its debut on September 11. This all new game allows players to create all new Mario levels using enemies, environments, and powers. It’s hard to believe that it is finally coming out. This was huge at E3 so I’d expect a lot of sales upon its release.
What do you think of this new offer from Nintendo?
