The Wii U Deluxe model is getting an official $50 price-cut as of September 20th.
As far as Nintendo has revealed, the deluxe models should still be offering everything that the current models offer, though we should probably expect digital download codes for Nintendo Land instead of physical retail cases, seeing as how the Windwaker HD bundle will come with a download code for the game as well.
While totally expected (I predicted this price-drop earlier this month), I’m totally excited that Nintendo has made this decision, as sometimes the company pulls the unexpected. This will undoubtedly help get the Wii U flying off shelves this holiday season.
There has been no word on whether or not the basic model will receive a slash in price as well, or phased out altogether, but we’ll keep our eyes peeled for new regarding that model. Stay tuned to GaminRealm for more information.by
