This title is Nintendo’s most anticipated release of 2014 and their largest weapon this holiday season against Sony and Microsoft. Smash Bros. has done nothing but increase in popularity over the years, especially after its induction into EVO in 2013 making it one of the most hype games in all of eSports. Now that Smash is getting it’s well deserved next-gen upgrade backed by over a year of promotion the gaming community got to bear witness to fighting game history on November 21st, 2014.
So, is there a Super Smash Bros Wii U bundle? This holiday season Microsoft and Sony both have multiple systems bundles available. These systems include some of their largest titles of the year with custom skins for the console. Nintendo has released bundles for the Wii U in the past for The Legend of Zelda: Windwalker and recently for Mario Kart 8. With Super Smash Bros. being Nintendo’s biggest release of the year and a game that is guaranteed to increase Wii U sales, it seems only logical that a Super Smash Bros.Wii U bundle would be available. Fans and holiday shoppers looking for a Wii U bundle containing Nintendo’s new fighter will be surprised to find that one does not exist. Why Nintendo isn’t releasing a system bundle for this title is up for speculation. However, due to the popularity of Smash, maybe Nintendo assumes that this game will sell itself and therefore they would only lose money by selling this game together with the system. Or since most players interested in this title will also be buying the newly released Gamecube controller and adapter, the price point for the whole package would be well above the competition.
Well holiday shoppers will be happy to know that during Black Friday Best Buy is releasing their own Super Smash Bros Wii U bundle including not one but three games.
