Nintendo of America has confirmed via its official website that the lovely Kirby and the Rainbow Curse will retail for $39.99. The game is a budget priced release, which will no doubt please many. The general recommended retail price for Wii U games in the United States seems to be $59.99. Kirby and the Rainbow Curse launches on February 20th in the US exclusively on the Wii U.
Thanks, Josh N
It looks as though GameStop Italy has let the cat out of the bag early and revealed the pricing for the New Nintendo 3DS in Europe. If you want the standard New Nintendo 3DS then you’ll need to fork out 169.98 Euros, but if you want to purchase the New Nintendo 3DS XL then that will set you back 199.98. The standard edition falls in line with the pricing of the Ambassador Edition New Nintendo 3DS. Now all we need is a release date from Nintendo Europe.
I’ve received a number of emails from Nintendo fans in the United Kingdom stating that the Amiibo figures are in short supply. UK retailer GAME has them in stock but they’ve hiked up the prices. Amazon UK also have them in stock, but the majority of them are being sold through sellers so they’ve seen a price hike too. Whether Nintendo underestimated demand or alternatively they’ve proved extremely popular is hard to determine.
Thanks to everyone for sending this in.
We’ve yet to hear about an official price point for the upcoming Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker on Wii U, but Kmart have the adorable game listed up at $39.99. Hopefully this is the official price for the game, but we won’t know for sure until nearer release.
Square Enix has confirmed that the Wii U version of Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut will cost consumers $20 more if they opt for the Wii U version of the game. Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut will cost $30 on the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3, while the Wii U version will set you back $50. The company has yet to explain why the Wii U version of the game costs gamers $20 more.
Capcom has confirmed via a press release that the long-awaited digital version of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies will retail for $29.99 in the United States. Capcom also reconfirmed that the game will be arriving on the Nintendo 3DS eShop this fall. The company stated a few days ago that the latest Phoenix Wright title will be digital only.
A Nintendo representative has confirmed that the Wii U is still being sold at a loss. This will come as a blow to many that were holding out buying the system until Nintendo implements a much-needed price cut. Numerous retailers in the United Kingdom have slashed the pricing, but the majority of stores in the US continue to sell the console for the recommended retail price. It doesn’t look as though this will change anytime soon.
