ShopTo and GAME have been shipping Captain Toad: Treasure Track from today, so there's still a chance to spend Christmas with the little mushroom fellow and his game of perception-bending puzzles.
Super Smash Bros for Wii U is one of the finest multiplayer games of the year, and a must-buy if you own Nintendo's little box of tricks. Just make sure you use the Rakuten voucher code 25%COUPONFORYOU to get it at this price. If you have a Wii U and have yet to get this stand-out brawler, this is a fantastic opportunity and a fantastic price. Be sure to check out our review for the full lowdown.
It's also worth noting that the code works on Amiibo too, and you can get several for under £10 if you buy through Base. Click here for some cheap Amiibo >>

Mass Effect 3 Special Edition is now £6.85 on Wii U. Click here to buy >>
In case you were wondering, the "special edition" includes the From Ashes DLC, extended cut ending, new weapon, gamepad controls and multiplayer DLC. However, it does not include Citadel. Thanks BuzzDuraband!
The so-called "console wars" are usually framed as a straight battle between the PS4 and Xbox One, but over the last twelve months these two gaming titans have been thoroughly embarrassed by a quiet, humble yet devastatingly impressive contender. No ifs, no buts: the Wii U is the must-own console of 2014.
Some argue that "consoles are an investment," but I'm not convinced by the logic. Money in the bank is an investment. An investment is an investment. A console, meanwhile, is only as good as the games you can play on it right now, and this is just the first way in which the Wii U proves its worth for any serious gamer.
There's no denying that Nintendo released their system sellers this year. Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros deliver local multiplayer perfection -- a niche that both Microsoft and Sony are ill-equipped to contest -- while Bayonetta 2 casually destroys the hardcore competition. A triple-threat of essential software to be sure, but dwelling on these three games does the Wii U's software library a huge disservice.

The Mario Kart 8 Limited Edition is only £44.99 at GAME. Click here to buy >>
Wouldn't it be great to have your own Blue Shell in real life? Well if a small plastic replica will do, GAME are selling the Mario Kart 8 Limited Edition for £44.99, which is the cheapest price around by well over a tenner. Thanks to Sedifet @ HUKD!
The Wii U could have probably launched with something ebtter than a 2D Mario title virtually indistinguishable from its Wii-based predecessor, but New Super Mario Bros U is still a fine game and lots of fun in multiplayer. Thanks to Lomi for the tip
The awesome Wii U (Basic) with Smash Bros deal is back in stock at GAME... and now ten quid cheaper. The Wii U is the second console you need in your life. Sure, you'll have your PS4 or your Xbox One for all of the multiplatform, third-party big hitters this year, but when it comes to design quality, exclusive games you can't get anywhere else, and locking down your couch-based multiplayer on Christmas Day, accept no substitute. Cheers Exist3ntia1Marmos3t!
UPDATE: Amazon have price matched this deal, so if you have Prime or are looking to take advantage of the Buy £5 Amazon gift voucher, get £5 extra free with Bespoke offer, be sure to click here to buy SSB for £22.99 from Amazon.
For one day only, GAME have reduced the price of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U to the £30. It's the best price we've seen for it, and beats the next cheapest deal elsewhere by £6. If you have a Wii U and have yet to get this stand-out brawler, this is a fantastic opportunity and a fantastic price. Be sure to check out our review for the full lowdown.

As our most popular video ever proved, there's nothing quite as entertaining as people shaking their booty, especially when those people are built for comfort rather than grace... like us. Just Dance 2015 will help you burn off that turkey this Christmas, you'll look like an utter tit, and you'll have the best time doing it.

The GAMEware Wii U GamePad carry case is now only £2. Click here to buy it from GAME! >>
I'm not sure what else to say other than, "you might as well." Should you need to carry the GamePad to a friends's house (if you're bringing the console over for some sweet Smash action) or store the slate-like controller for a while, this padded bag offers decent protection at an insanely cheap price. Thanks to googley2 @ HUKD!

Nintendo's amateurish attitude towards stocking their flagship items has actually served to make Amiibo figures fairly valuable propositions. Fox is one of the more regular figures, but he'#s a steal at £9.22 given that the figures normally retail for £10 and up.
You can also use the Video Game Box voucher code "VGB5" to get an extra 5% off, bringing the price down to £9.22.
Mario Kart 8 is absolutely superb. It's the best Mario Kart game, in fact, in decades. The track design is brilliant, the handling model is excellent, and the array of characters and powerups are cracking too. If you have a Wii U, you need this game in your life.
Make sure you use the voucher code GIFT40 to get it at this price. Cheers Lomi!
Nintendo Land isn't the deepest game you'll ever play, but its GamePad-heavy challenges are great fun in asymmetrical local multiplayer. For £6.85 at ShopTo, it's also a cheap Wii U deal that will tide you over for a few afternoons. You'll save £1 versus The Game Collection.
Thanks to Lomi @ HUKD!
I love a bit of Scribblenauts, it's one of those games series that really encourages actual play -- mucking around by spawning whatever happens to take your fancy in order to solve whatever puzzle you have in front of you. Of course, my default course of action is usually to spawn Cthulhu and a dragon and make them fight.
Anyhoo... Scribblenauts Unlimited can be had for under £20 from Coolshop on Wii U. It can be quite hard to find these days, so snap it up if you get the chance.
You can get a Wii U with Super Smash Bros for £169.99 at GAME, but Amazon are all about the quantity with this cheap console bundle. For £10 more you can get Nintendo Land, Just Dance 2015, Sing Party and Wii Party U into the bargain. Not the best games, but enough for some fun local multiplayer and embarrassing karaoke over Christmas. Thanks to jough @ HUKD!
The Wii U is the must-have console of 2014. It certainly boasts the best games of the generation so far and the most enjoyable local multiplayer, the latter of which powers the fantastic new Super Smash Bros. You can grab a basic console and its must-have Christmas game for £169.99, which is a bargain and guaranteed boxing day local multiplayer delight, though you'll need to dig out some controllers (3DS consoles will work!).
Click here to read our Super Smash Bros review, and yes, I did copy/paste the first part of that intro from a defunct deal yesterday. Thanks to Gjheyes @ HUKD!
Us Europeans have to wait until January for Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, but if you want to guarantee yourself a cheap Wii U deal at launch, The Game Collection voucher code lets you save a packet at £26.95.
Matt describes the game as "the glorious lovechild of Mario and Fez" in our Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker preview, and early reviews are all positive so you should be able to pre-order with confidence. Thanks once again to FantasyDeals @ HUKD!
Hyrule Warriors is one of the best and most satisfying Warriors games ever made, and even though it's a Wii U exclusive, the price has plummeted today thanks to The Game Collection voucher code.
Sizzling winter deal and a big saving. Check out our in-depth Hyrule Warriors review for all the info. Thanks to FantasyDeals @ HUKD!
The Wii U has the best exclusives of any console this Christmas Admittedly, that's because it's had a year's headstart, and basically only deals in exclusives these days because of no third-party support. But it's still pretty true.
What's also true is that this Basic Wii U console bundle from The Hut is ludicrously cheap. £122? That's the lowest price yet.
Now, it is The Hut. So it'll probably take a few extra days to reach you given their track record, but it's probably worth waiting for at this price. Cheers kingjude!
Wii U Basic bundles have been everywhere, but there haven't been many around that include the hottest game of the winter on Wii U -- Super Smash Bros. Well, Smyths are running a bundle to get a Basic Wii U with Smash Bros for £179.99, but it looks like you can also throw New Super Mario Bros U into the mix for free!
