We have all been wondering when Nintendo will allow consumers to purchase an additional Wii U GamePad. The system was released in 2012 but the only way to get an extra GamePad was to get a replacement from Nintendo customer service. However, Nintendo Japan has started selling Wii U GamePads separate from the console and they cost 12.8K Yen which is around $120. You should be aware that no Wii U game supports more than one GamePad.
All Wii U games are currently 10 percent off at both Target retailers and Target.com with the code LIST. This offer is available for a limited time only and also applies to newer releases like Yoshi’s Woolly World, Super Mario Maker, Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival, Just Dance 2016, Guitar Hero Live and Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash. For a list of all the games featured in this offer, head on over to Target’s website.
If you have yet to purchase a Wii U then you may want to pay a visit to Amazon UK. The popular online retailer is currently selling the Mario Kart 8 and Splatoon 32GB bundle for £229.99. If you purchase the very same bundle from the Nintendo UK Store then you will be looking at paying £259.99. I’m not sure how long Amazon UK will be offering this deal for so you might want to get in there quickly!

We all had our hopes raised when we found out that Minecraft was coming to the Wii U due to a recent listing by ratings board PEGI. Well, that particular listing for Minecraft Wii U has since been removed from the site. We expected to hear something about it during the Nintendo Direct last week, but nothing came of it. Whether it was an older listing that has been scrapped remains to be seen, but it certainly make sense for it to come to Wii U as the audience is clearly there.
The game that you have probably all been waiting for is coming to Wii U and that game is none other than Brunswick Pro Bowling. The game should at least prove to be some light-hearted entertainment. It has previously graced the Wii and the Nintendo 3DS. Here’s what the ESRB rating says about the sports title.
This is a sports simulation game in which players compete against opponents in games of bowling. If players score strikes or spares, “cartoony” animations are displayed on-screen: pins wagging their tongues at a female bowler; a female bowler blowing kisses to knock down pins.
Thanks to those who sent this in.
