Update: Just a reminder that the deal starts today. You can actually view the ad right here. Unfortunately, this deal only appears to work in store for those who were hoping to get the whole package shipped to their home.
Original: The same deal that caused me to get my own Wii U back in March of 2013 seems to have made a comeback with an even better library of games to select from. For a limited time, next week Sunday to Saturday (Sept 22 – 28), Target will be allowing customers to purchase two retail Wii U games and choose another (free of charge) in return. By then, the Wii U $50 price-cut — pitting the console at $299 — will have also been in full effect, in turn, making this offer a more appealing deal.
To put this into perspective, for those who don’t currently own a Wii U system, you can acquire the Wii U Zelda Deluxe system, The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD (digital), The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia (digital), Rayman Legends, The Wonderful 101, and Pikmin 3 (the third free game) all for $420. If you’re already a Wii U owner, you can shave $300 off that price, though that would mean you’re now in the position of having to actually buy The Wind Waker HD. On the bright side, already owning a Wii U gives you a good reason to get The Wind Waker HD Limited Edition bundle that comes with the Limited Edition Ganondorf Collectible 5″ Figurine. If it’s not yet in perspective how generous of a deal this might be for you, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are being offered at $399 and $499 respectively and aren’t being bundled with any games (or at least this hasn’t been confirmed by either of the manufacturers).
Pro Tip: Don’t get any game that isn’t $60 as the lowest price will be free.
Europe doesn’t seem to be getting a similar deal, though gamers can look forward to the Lego City: Undercover Wii U Deluxe bundle releasing October 18th exclusively in the UK. Will you be taking advantage of this deal? Sound off in the comment section below!
