Best Buy is currently offering gamers the chance to snap up a Wii U console at a discounted price. The latest Wii U Deluxe bundle includes New Super Mario Bros U and New Super Luigi U and is priced up at $259.99. The bundle normally retails for $299.99.

We reported last week that Best Buy were holding an incredible promotion for Nintendo 3DS owners and it seems as though the deal is now live. It’s buy one get one free on select Nintendo 3DS first party titles including Tomodachi Life, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, Kirby Triple Deluxe, and much more. You can check out the deal, right here.
Thanks to those who sent this in.
US retailer Best Buy currently have the GameCube adapter up for pre-order. What is interesting is that the retailer claims that the device can be used for games other than Super Smash Bros. Nintendo has yet to announce any other titles that will support the peripheral, but it certainly wouldn’t hurt using it for other games.
“Play your favorite Wii U games with the controller experience you know and love using this GameCube Controller Adapter. Bash your way through new and exciting titles with your GameCube controller, including Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Make it a party by connecting up to four original GameCube or WaveBird controllers, so your friends can get in on the fun. It’s time to unleash your classic moves on a new generation of games.”

Best Buy will be running an extremely good promotion starting from next Sunday. You’ll be able to participate in a buy one get one free deal on first party Nintendo 3DS software. The games include The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and Yoshi’s New Island. You can also get the brilliant Wii U Pro Controller for $29.99.
Popular US retailer Best Buy has made a bit of a blooper by listing Mario Kart 8 as a Nintendo 3DS Digital Download Add-On on its official website. However, the product page does have an image of the game with the Wii U logo. You can view the page, right here.
Nintendo has confirmed the Super Smash Bros. playable demo locations at more than 100 Best Buy’s across the US. On June 11 from 4 to 9p.m. and June 14 from 12 to 5p.m. local time, Smash Bros fans can battle in the four-player demo at select Best Buy stores in the Nintendo-official “Super Smash Bros. Smash-Fest” event.
Featuring the same playable demo at this year’s E3, fans of the brawler will be able to get up to speed with the Wii U version before it launches in stores this winter. You can find a list of all the participating Best Buy stores, here.
Nintendo will also give away a rare collectible Super Smash Bros. gold coin – limited to one per customer, while supplies last – for the first 70 attendees who pre-order the Wii U or 3DS game at each Best Buy event. And, as a bonus offer, fans will get a $5 My Best Buy Rewards Zone certificate when they both pre-order and pick up their game upon release.
Best Buy Canada is now listing the Wii U version of Watch Dogs with a June 30th release date. We already know that the game has been pushed back on Wii U so that the team could concentrate their efforts on the other versions of the game. We’ve yet to get an official release date from Ubisoft for the Wii U version of the game, but a summer release would certainly please fans.
