Canadian retailer EBGames have revealed that the Super Smash Bros Wii U bundle, which comes with a copy of the game, a GameCube adaptor and a GameCube controller, will be exclusive to the retailer in Canada. The bundle is currently retailing for $99.99.
The evidence seems to be mounting that the long-awaited Super Smash Bros Wii U will be released on November 21st. The latest retailer to advertise the game with the date is Amazon Canada. Nintendo has yet to confirm when we can expect the Wii U version, but surely an official release date announcement isn’t too far off?
Nintendo Canada recently sent out an email listing upcoming titles for the Nintendo 3DS that gamers can play this year. Among the titles listed is Super Smash Bros for the Nintendo 3DS. The advertisement says that the game is coming to Canada on October 3rd which is the same day as the game arrives in the United States.
JoeM86 from the NeoGAF forums has done a little digging and it appears as though Canada won’t be receiving Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire at the same time as the United States. Gamers in the US will get the game on November 21st and Europe will get the game on November 28th. It’s possible Canada will get it at the same time as Europe, but it’s not confirmed.
Thanks to those who sent this in.
Nintendo of Canada’s Communications Manager, Matt Ryan, has revealed that Nintendo sold 35,700 Wii Mini consoles in Canada since launch. Ryan said that the Canadian market has reacted positively to the system which lacks a lot of the functionality that the original Wii console contained. Nintendo Europe announced yesterday that the system will go on sale throughout Europe on March 22nd. UK retail outlets have begun taking pre-orders for the system which costs £80.
“Canadian market has reacted positively to the great value the system has to offer, and we are seeing this reflected in the sales numbers.”
