A new Wii U bundle has hit the Walmart website for pre-orders, themed around Super Mario Maker.
While the bundle is the whopping price of $299, it comes with the complete Wii U console, a download code for Super Mario Maker, Super Mario Maker idea book, and an 8-bit Mario that was created for Mario’s 30th anniversary.
Why this bundle is so great
This bundle is perfect for the creative mind who prefers to design instead of compete against the AI. There have been Wii U bundles in the past for Mario Kart, but this bundle stands out with a theme of Super Mario Maker, emphasizing creativity.
