Get a Wii U Premium console with Mario Kart 8 and Splatoon for £219.99

While we've seen cheaper Wii U premium bundles in the past, this is the lowest price for one that includes two of the best games for the system right now. With the best offer for both titles currently coming in at around £50 overall, it makes this particular bundle very tempting for those that have yet to get hold of one. Thanks to heartyparty @ HUKD!

Be sure to check out our Mario Kart 8 review and Splatoon review for more details.

UPDATED: Wii U Premium Bundle with Mario Kart 8 & Splatoon to arrive October 30th

Nintendo have announced that a brand new Premium bundle for the Wii U will be coming to Europe at the end of the month. Along with a Premium console, it will also include Mario Kart 8 and Splatoon, making it a great place to start if you’ve yet to get hold of Ninty’s latest home console.

That said, there are a few issues. Firstly, the words “Limited offer” are used in the announcement, meaning we have no idea how many will be available or who will stock them. Secondly, no price is mentioned, although our educated guess puts a potential price between £250-300. Considering the next few months will be prime time for Nintendo to strike with some aggressive pricing, let’s hope they make it more affordable.

UPDATE: MCV are reporting that the bundle will be priced at £239.99. If that proves to be accurate, this could well be the best Wii U bundle to buy (provided you can get your hands on one.)

Mario Kart 8 is under £30 for a change

Despite being over a year old, Mario Kart 8 is one of those first-party Nintendo titles that simple refuses to go cheap. So much so, it's actually worth highlighting when you can get it for less than £30, like in this £29.95 deal.

On the other hand, you are paying for one of the best racing games of the last few years and an essential title if you didn't get it in a bundle already. Find out more in our extensive Mario Kart 8 Review. You'll definitely want to check out the super fast 200cc options too.

There's no excuses now, grab a Wii U basic console for only £124.99

There's no excuses now, grab a Wii U basic console for only £124.99

We challenge anybody sat on the fence with the Nintendo Wii U to resist this beauty of an offer. At only £124.99 this is the lowest price we have seen the console available from a UK retailer (apart from the freak £99 flash offering from John Lewis last year).

Yoshi's Woolly World, Splatoon, Mario Kart 8 and the upcoming Super Mario Maker are all games you really need to consider should you decide to make the correct decision and purchase this console.

Thanks for b_nar on HUKD for the tip off.

Wii U premium console and Mario Kart 8 only £175.50

A Premium Wii U bundle with Mario Kart 8 is now available for £175.50. This a hell of a steal. Be sure to use the discount code to get a rather this massive discount. You're also getting x5 Super Points, which will be worth about £9. Mario Kart 8 walked away with our accolade for best racing game of 2014 and even as a staunch PS4, gamer, I struggle to disagree. The Premium Wii U is the only version you want too as it comes with 32GB of memory. Note: This comes with an EU plug, but also a UK adapter.

The Wii U's current lineup is very strong. Bayonetta 2, Smash Bros, Splatoon and the promise of Xenoblade Chronicles X and Super Mario Maker prove that there's a healthy selection of exclusives on the once-ailing console.

Mario Kart 8 only £28.22

I honestly love everything about Nintendo, their ability to get things right is second to none and Mario Kart 8 is absolutely no different and serious fun for both adults and children alike.

Mario Kart 8 is a great example of how to keep a 20-odd year old franchise relevant. It isn't shy to give you what you've already had before with it's predictable racing fun. But conversely it also offers up so much more with this latest installment thanks to brilliant track design, item tweaking, customisation and a strong online offering to keep you coming back for more for months to come.

Mario Kart 8 is set to receive another massive DLC pack next week, containing a whopping eight new tracks, three new courses and four new vehicles. Not to mention a simultaneous free update with the new 200cc mode and extra Amiibo content.

Or, in other words, Nintendo are doing DLC right when so many companies seem to be locked into a competition over who can get it the most badly wrong.

Mario Kart 200cc comparison trailer has all the speed

Mario Kart 8 has been feeling the need for speed for a while now. So we're delighted to hear that Nintendo is bringing back the 200cc motors. This new comparison video shows how fast they are compared to the 150cc vehicles, which are currently the fastest rides in Mario Kart 8.

Yes, Nintendo. So much yes. The 150cc karts feel a little slow to be honest, but this injection of speed should see us knocking a third off our best lap times and we can't wait for the new motors to land as a FREE update on April 23rd. On the same day a new paid DLC bundle will be available with two new characters and eight new tracks. Consider us tempted.

If you have any GameCube controllers you want to use on your Wii U for Mario Kart 8 or Super Smash Bros, be sure to pick up this cheap Gamecube to Wii U controller adapter for £9.99. Check out the new trailer below.

Mario games rarely depreciate too much, which is why if a deal comes along, you should really snap them up. With most prices for Mario Kart 8 still hovering up around the £35 mark, unsurprising given that it's one of the best games of the last couple of years regardless of platform, take advantage of the Rakuten voucher code JANOFFER10, punch it in at the checkout, and treat yourself to the best multiplayer game of 2014 for just over £30.
