Now's the time. Wii U Premium + Mario Kart 8 only £188.10

A Premium Wii U bundle with Mario Kart 8 is now available for £188.10. This a hell of a steal. Be sure to use the discount code to get a rather helpful £20.90 discount. You're also getting x5 Super Points. 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.

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.

Red Nintendo Wii U Fit Meter only £7.99

There are two reasons why people purchase things like the Nintendo Wii U Fit Meter, either they feel they have the deepest of intentions to actually use it, or they just want one and it ends up in kitchen drawer (yes DJ Hero and my Playstation Move I am looking at you!)

Funnily, it's delivered to your front door for that £7.99, so once you have effortlessly clicked 'Buy Now' you don't even have to get off the sofa to go get it. Brilliant.

Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag Skull Edition only £14.95 on Wii U

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is a wonderfully harmonious game. It's enormous, packed with more things to see and do than ever before, but Ubisoft have managed to make every little thing mean something in tangible, impactful terms. Black Flag is a wonderful piratical romp that manages to revive the stealthy focus of earlier series instalments, whilst delivering an outstanding naval sandbox, an excellent setting and story, and lashings of swashbuckling action. Unmissable. Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Review | Brilliant Buccaneering (9/10)

£14.95 is a brilliant price for this considering all the extra booty you get thrown in with it:

  • Nintendo Wii U Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag game
  • Jumbo steel case

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.

Captain Toad Treasure Tracker only £20

Halfway between Fez and the best Screwball Scramble set ever created, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is a quietly brilliant puzzler. It could stand to be longer and slightly more challenging, but Nintendo have turned a simple premise into something truly lovely.

In an age when so many games are releasing incomplete or unacceptably compromised, it's a delight to play something perfectly formed and designed to be enjoyed, not consumed. I'd just like more of it. Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker Review | The Industry Could Learn From This Humble Hero (8/10)

This is a part of the John Lewis summer sale and the site is taking quite hammering at the moment so if at first you don't succeed...

COMMENT | Nintendo must admit the Wii U's mistakes to succeed with the NX

We love the Wii U and its glorious collection of exclusives here at Dealspwn, but there's no denying that Nintendo's latest system missed the mark in any number of key areas. Ninty boss Satoru Iwata has now gone on record explaining why he feels the Wii U underperformed, blaming sluggish sales on the console's high price and the rise of tablets.

He's half right, but he's also scapegoating like mad when Nintendo needs to be admitting their mistakes and learning from them if they want the NX to be a "very big hit."

Let's take a look at what Iwata did cop to. “Unfortunately with our latest system, the Wii U, the price point was one that ended up getting a little higher than we wanted,” he told NPR. There's no denying that the relatively high launch RRP played a role, but numerous price cuts didn't make for a huge sales upswing. As he went on to say, “I don’t think it’s just price, because if the system is appealing enough, people will buy it even if the price is a little bit high. I think with Wii U, our challenge was that perhaps people didn’t understand the system.”

COMMENT | Nintendo must admit the Wii U's mistakes to succeed with the NX

Yes. That's true; in fact consumer confusion is one of the biggest issues with the Wii U. But whose fault was that exactly?

I'm not in the habit of making a big song and dance regarding RRP on any particular product, more so limited stock Nintendo ones but just look at those adorable little things!

Although they are listed just 4p under the RRP you might want to check out both Amazon and eBay to see why I felt the need to point out these great RRP prices.

Bayonetta 2 is £20.42 on Wii U

"Bayonetta 2 is mechanically perfect, yet it is also a game that is stuffed with personality and wit and charm and an abundance of ideas and imagery and symbolism that its poor story cannot hope to make sense of or contain. But that's okay -- it is the finest game Platinum have ever made, and the best thing to grace the Wii U thus far." Bayonetta 2 Review | Balletic, Bonkers, Brilliant (10/10)

It's not quite the lowest we have seen Bayonetta 2 (£18.28 in April) but quite frankly at £20.42 it definitely should be on the shelf of any Wii U owner.

Yarn Yoshi amiibo stock allegedly destroyed with pre orders reportedly cancelled

If you have pre ordered Yoshi's Woolly World for next week and are expecting it to ship with the Yarn Yoshi amiibo I would suggest you contact your retailer for confirmation.

Reports are circulating which state that a shipment of the Yoshi Yarn amiibos have been destroyed, we're still yet to learn if the destruction was an accident or intended. French retailers Auchan and Boulanger are reportedly communicating via customers to acknowledge the cancellation of their orders for the product.

No announcement has been made as of yet and we are unsure if the shipment was intended for the whole of Europe or just France.

We will try to keep you updated as and when we learn more.

Nintendo E3 2015 Digital Event Reactions - delight or disaster?

Nintendo had a tough decision to make going into E3 2015. Should they go all-out on making the Wii U the ultimate exclusive machine, or should they siphon the biggest games away to the NX?

By the looks of it, Nintendo went for the latter, but at least they brought a few exciting things along nonetheless. Starting with nothing less than a Star Fox sequel from Platinum Games and Shigeru Miyamoto.

Carl and I sat down to analyse one of the most divisive Nintendo press conferences in years, which seems to have split the fanbase down the middle. Disaster? Treading water? Or fun on a bun? Let's get into this.

Nintendo E3 2015 Digital Event Reactions - delight or disaster?

Nintendo had one major objective today: announce Star Fox. Mission accomplished. Star Fox Zero looks like exactly what we want: the same rail shooting and All Range dogfighting with new features, mechs, vehicles and input from the maestros at Platinum Games. I think we can safely say that this will be in a fair few stockings come Christmas.

After which point, it has to be said, their event seriously lacked wow factor beyond the Muppet schtick, but showed off loads of really good wholesome stuff.

Kirby & Meta Knight amiibos back in stock on the official Nintendo UK store (but probably not for long)

Nintendo are notoriously bad at keeping amiibo in stock, but their UK store has managed to procure some new Kirby and Meta Knight figurines. They cost £10.99 each, which might seem steep until you realise that everywhere else is either out of stock or chiselling you for all you're worth. That's the benefit of buying directly from Nintendo, though as per usual we don't know how long they'll remain in stock.

They're both compatible with Kirby And The Rainbow Paintbrush, which is sadly rather mediocre. Still, at least you can buy it for just £19.99.

Owners of the recent Nintendo release Splatoon will tomorrow be entitled to the newest arsenal addition to the game since launch. Splash-O-Matic! will be available from 3pm tomorrow and is the 3rd entry to the game and joins the previous entries of Inkbrush roller weapon and the N-Zap '85.

If you're still to pick up a copy of Splatoon make sure to head over to Gameseek who still seem to be leading the race by a fraction for the current lowest price at £24.88.

Nintendo Wii U Basic only £113.43

That Nintendo Wii U slowly seems to be creeping it's way to the magical £100 mark (my magical mark).

With all the purchases from Amazon International wether it be France, Germany or Spain you can always choose to pay in either GBP (£117.33) or Euro's (£113.43) dependent on the card you choose to use and wether any conversion charges will apply, If however you are not sure it's probably best to pay in GBP given the minimum difference.

Please note : Usually ships in 2-5 weeks.
