A new Wii U Deluxe bundle will be released in Japan, called the Instant Play Family Premium Set. Nintendo’s latest bundle for its struggling console comes packaged with a host of items, including the standard gamepad, a MotionPlus Wiimote, a 30-day code for Wii Karaoke U, as well as Wii Party U and New Super Mario Bros. U pre-loaded onto the console. Although the Instant Play Bundle does not come with Nintendo Land, it will retail for only 32,800 yen, or $332, which is only 1300 yen ($318) above the standard Wii U Deluxe package. Gamers in Japan will also have the option of spending 34,800 yen to get an Instant Play bundle that comes with Wii Fit U.
Rumors had emerged a week ago about a possible bundle that would include New Super Mario Bros. U, and although this announcement of the Japanese bundle does not explain the supposed European one that also comes with New Super Luigi U, it certainly lends credence to the idea. The news of the Instant Play bundle comes right on the heels of another Wii U bundle release, as the Wind Waker HD Deluxe Wii U Bundle launched on September 20th.
