Wii U Skylanders SWAP Force Bundle Launches In November
Just in time for the holiday shopping season, Nintendo is gearing up to offer a brand new Wii U bundle, this one including the system, the new Skylanders game, SWAP Force, and Nintendo Land.
So, you remember a couple of days ago when we announced that a new Mario Bros. themed Wii U deluxe bundle would be replacing the old version, and then also threw in a reminder about the Zelda bundle, too? Well, it looks like the Big N wants consumers to have as many options as humanly possible heading into the holidays as they announce yet another option, this one featuring the action figure-infused Skylanders SWAP Force and Nintendo Land. This latest bundle will be available on Nov. 15 for $299.99. And, for those who are worried about getting SWAP Force and needing to buy extra action figures just to enjoy the game, the announcement from Nintendo states that “an assortment of Skylanders extras” will be included. So, you should be good to go.
This is, of course, assuming you’re not going to be buying, say, another console on Nov. 15. That just so happens to be the launch day of the PlayStation 4. So, you know, decide where you want to invest your money and get to waiting in one line or the other. (Note: I highly doubt there will actually be a line for the new Wii bundle. Just show up to GameStop/Walmart/Wherever day of and grab your console).
According to Nintendo of America Executive VP of Sales and Marketing, Scott Moffitt, this latest bundle offers a nice starting point for newcomers to the console looking for some good, clean family fun.
“There are so many great elements to the Skylanders SWAP Force Wii U bundle that we almost couldn’t cram them all into the box,” Moffitt said, presumably forgetting that slightly larger boxes are always an alternative. “This amazing deal provides a huge amount of entertainment for the kids and their families to play together.”
For those who like to have every little detail broken down before they decide on a purchase, here’s everything the new bundle offers: A white Wii U Basic system, a Skylanders SWAP Force starter pack that includes the game, a Portal of Power, three figures including Ninja Stealth Elf, Blast-Zone and an exclusive color shift Washbuckler, a collector poster, trading cards, sticker sheets and a copy of Nintendo Land thrown in for good measure.
