If you buying Mario Kart 8 or buying Wii U bundle, then you get free Wii U game.

Only 1 game out of 10.

I guess Nintendo has only 1 multiplayer game and they want to keep it updated and online because it would be such a fail when people buy Mario Kart 8 but nobody is playing online, or if they are then there are no players.

So i guess Nintendo is trying to do anything to sell Wii U and Mario Kart 8.

Which one of those games you would pick free? (POLL)

Is this offer available in UK as well?

#5 Posted by PurpleMan5000 (7125 posts) -

I'm probably going to pick Wind Waker. I'm also interested in the Sonic game, but I think I would rather get the physical version so I can resell if the somewhat likely happens and the game is awful.

It is.

NA gets 1 of 4 games.

Europe gets a choice from 10. The reason being the sales are the lowest there, and Nintendo of Europe is desperate to move consoles

Nintendo isn't giving away a free game here. You have to buy Mario Kart 8 to get it. Sony did give away free downloadable games on the PS3 a few years ago, but honestly, they needed to after their online service was down for a whole month.

This is great. I was already planning to buy Mario Kart 8 and now I'll get an extra game for free.

Already own Pikmin, Mario and Zelda so the other game I would want is Wonderful 101.

#15 Edited by freedomfreak (39963 posts) -

And here I was planning on buying Pikmin 3.

This is wonderful. My WiiU's gonna get some attention May 30th.

Huzzah! So tempted to grab a Wii U Mario Kart bundle.

#17 Posted by GoldenElementXL (2953 posts) -

Wind Waker HD it is. I don't really care about Wii U Party and I own the other 2. Sweet deal though.

#18 Posted by joehult (365 posts) -

Drop the free game, drop the controller, and drop the price 150, and maybe then I will try to find an empty hdmi slot on one of my TVs for this system.

#19 Edited by yokofox33 (29501 posts) -

I'm forced to go with Wii Party U. I have the other 3 games already. I won't complain too much since they didn't really have to do this promotion.

#20 Posted by ocidax (761 posts) -

@PurpleMan5000: You are buying the Mario Kart 8 game. So, the other game is free.

#21 Edited by LegatoSkyheart (25136 posts) -

Oh I thought there was a better selection. Since I already have 3/4 I have to get WiiU Party to participate in this deal.

Either that or Wind Walker for me.

#24 Posted by ocidax (761 posts) -

@joehult: Looks like you are not going to play Mario Kart 8 for a while. For me, is a excellent deal.

#25 Posted by Netret0120 (2081 posts) -

Wind walker or wii party. I can easily resell it so i can buy a new PS game.

#26 Edited by PurpleMan5000 (7125 posts) -

You will have to resell the game as used, though. The Club Nintendo code will be inside the case.

#27 Edited by Chutebox (36969 posts) -

This through all retailers?

#28 Posted by ocidax (761 posts) -

@Chutebox: Yes. You only have to register the game on the Nintendo club. And receive the code of the game selected.

It's through Club Nintendo. EDIT: Sorry, if you meant is this only with digital copies of MK8, or if it's only with Best Buy and not Gamestop or something like that, I mistook your question and gave you an overly long explanation that you didn't need. :P

I'm sure you know this, but in case you or others don't, all Nintendo games now come with a code that you can use to register to your Club Nintendo account. These codes grant you points which you can spend on a selection of four games every month or some Nintendo memorabilia. But for Mario Kart 8, when you purchase the game and register the Club Nintendo code that comes with the game within the time frame, you will be eligible for a free digital copy of one of the four (or ten in Europe) games. It's not through a retailer, you'll have to download the game at home after registering Mario Kart 8.

Gotta say, very nice promotion. I already have Wind Waker HD and NSMBU, so I'll do my research to see if Wii Party U should even remotely be considered (probably not, because if I have people over we are so Kart'ng it up.) I'll most likely go with Pikmin 3 which I am very happy about.

I think I am going to buy a Wii U when this bundle arrives and grab me Wind Waker for free... :D

Keep all of that but drop the price to $150 like you say and then I might get one.

You mean the bundle doesn't get a free game ?

If that is the case, perhaps it's better to get a WiiU bundle on the cheap and buy Mario Kart separately.

And here I was planning on buying Pikmin 3.

Sweet multiplayer action. Both local and online.

We should definitely play with/against eachother sometime ;)

#35 Posted by ocidax (761 posts) -

@DaBrainz: Looks like they are going to do it. Actually they announced, a whole year of marketing campaign for this game ($$$).

#36 Edited by charizard1605 (56816 posts) -

Wow, that's an amazing deal!

Might look into either New Super Mario or Pikmin 3.

#37 Edited by PurpleMan5000 (7125 posts) -

@R4gn4r0k: The bundle gets the free game, too. The Wonderful 101 is not on the list of games available in North America, though.

250 pounds actually ... ($420)

I have the money in my emergency savings... but they are meant for next year when I will be working full time with no wage, and may not be able to get a second job.

Playing MK8 and Pikmin 3 is an emergency.

#41 Posted by R4gn4r0k (16427 posts) -

@PurpleMan5000: Oh like that. Good thing EU is getting it, because the other interesting games like Super Mario, Zelda an Pikmin, I have already.

I would definitely recommend those to people who are planning to get the Wii U bundle.

hmm... compelling... but this time not compelling an argument enough.

Actually, a bunch of game sites were reporting this earlier today. I'm kind of bummed. I wanted Wonderful 101.

#46 Edited by nini200 (9677 posts) -

And here I am preordering Mario Kart 8 yesterday. Holy frick nuggets this is great!

I guess my choice is between Wind Waker and Pikmin. I would get Wii Party U but I just don't know enough about it.

The game is so incredibly lifeless and bland you're better off not bothering with it period.

$360 will get you a Wii U, NSMBU, NSLBU, Mario Kart 8, and Pikmin 3. If you subtract off what those games are selling for on Amazon (about $25 less than MSRP in total), you are basically only paying $175 for the Wii U. If you aren't interested in those games, then you probably shouldn't purchase the Wii regardless of price. Like not even for $10.

#50 Posted by PhazonBlazer (11695 posts) -

If I got one, it'd be Pikmin 3.
