The Wii U is getting a price cut on September 20.
Nintendo announced today that the struggling system will drop to $300 for the 32GB version in the United States and Europe. The 8GB Wii U Basic model will be phased out.
In addition to the price cut, there will be a new Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD Wii U bundle, which will debut on September 20.
This bundle will include a digital copy of The Wind Waker HD redeemable immediately and ahead of the game's October 4 retail launch date. The bundle will also feature a custom GamePad with Zelda graphics, as well as the digital version of the Hyrule Historia book.
The Wind Waker HD will be available digitally on September 20 for all consumers, not only those who purchase the special bundle.
Nintendo also confirmed that the current 32GB Wii U bundle that features Nintendo Land as a pack-in game will remain on the market.
The Wii U has struggled thus far, selling 160,000 units worldwide in the April-June quarter and 3.61 million units overall. Nintendo is aiming to boost sales by releasing a steady stream of marquee titles.
Nintendo dated several of these games today, including Super Mario 3D World (November 22) and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze (December 6). The company also announced a brand-new handheld: the Nintendo 2DS.
