Coming away from E3 you could be forgiven for thinking that Nintendo had little in the way of releases for the remainder of the year.
Us lucky Europeans have already received the rather joyous Yoshi’s Woolly World, and Super Mario Maker will be here in a few short weeks.
But what else is there to look forward to?
Well, now that Nintendo has released a near-complete 2015 release schedule for Wii U, 3DS and its amiibo range – quite a bit.
“Nintendo has games, amiibo and systems to satisfy all kinds of players, whether they’re looking for back-to-school gifts or getting an early start on their holiday shopping,” squealed Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “No one can match the quality or uniqueness of what Nintendo has to offer for the rest of 2015.”
Let’s see, Scott. Let’s see…
Wii U Bundles
It wouldn’t autumn without a hardware bundle announcement. Although there is still no sign of a Wii U price cut, Walmart will receive a pretty decent Super Mario Maker bundle that includes a Wii U console, the game, idea book and the 30th Anniversary Mario Modern Color amiibo. The bundle goes on sale 11th of September, priced $299.96. That’s 4 cents in your pocket, right there.
