Mario Kart 8, Super Mario 3D World Wii U bundles hit US in fall

Mario Kart 7 2DS bundles announced

Several new Nintendo hardware bundles will hit US retail this autumn, the firm announced on Friday.

Physical copies Super Mario 3D World and Nintendo Land will be added to the $299.99 Wii U Deluxe Set, replacing the current bundle's offerings of New Super Mario Bros. U and New Super Luigi U. This marks the return of Nintendo Land, which was included as part of the original Wii U Deluxe Set.

A Walmart-exclusive Wii U bundle will come bundled with physical copies of Mario Kart 8 and Nintendo Land for $299.99. Both Wii U bundles will release starting in mid-September.

Nintendo also introduced three new 2DS bundles including the Electric Blue, Crimson Red, and Sea Green systems and a download code for Mario Kart 7 for $129.99 slated to hit stores in early October.

3DS and 3DS XL bundles are absent from the new lineup, likely because Nintendo announced both systems will soon receive a hardware update: the new models add a second thumbstick, two more shoulder buttons, a faster processor, and improved 3D display.

The new 3DS and 3DS XL are set to release in Japan this year and in Europe and North America in 2015.
