Pre-order Xenoblade Chronicles X on Wii U for just £34.85

Here's the cheapest price around for the upcoming Wii U exclusive, which beats the next best offer elsewhere by almost £4. Considering how well its predecessor held its price, this offer of £35 is pretty good going. We've made no secret of our high hopes and expectations for Xenoblade Chronicles X, with its expansive world to explore, monsters to defeat with enjoyable combat mechanics, and added multiplayer functionality. We'll ultimately find out in December if it has been worth the wait. Thanks to Gamer_U @ HUKD!

The Wonderful 101 on Wii U falls to its lowest price yet

Beating the next best offer by a few pounds, this is the cheapest deal we've seen for The Wonderful 101. The layered gameplay mechanics take some getting used to, but if you can get to grips with it all then you'll find Platinum Games' unique approach provides a colourful and inventive brawler. Thanks to FantasyDeals @ HUKD!

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.

Splatoon down to £18.69 today

Splatoon is a must-buy title for any Wii U owner, and unlike most first-party Ninty titles, there are some super cheap deals floating around since release. Like this one at just £18.69 which is over £3 cheaper than the next best deal.

Only Nintendo could turn third-person shooter deathmatches in family-friendly fun. This shooter sees you aiming to paint more territory than the rival team with a variety of weapons. In a neat twist, you can also sneakily swim through any surface painted in your colour. New maps and weapons are appearing all the time in Splatoon, retro Nintendo fans really need to take a look at this to roll back the clock too.

Thanks to BuzzDuraband.

Lego Hobbit on Wii U only £8.69

Fancy reliving the Hobbit movies in Lego form and pandering to your obsessive nature over in-game collectibles? Then be sure to pick up Lego The Hobbit on your Wii U for just £8.69.

The latest Lego effort is one of the more rushed efforts from the overworked Traveller's Tales studio, but it's much more appealing at this price. It's certainly worth a look if you're a series fan. The third film was supposed to be added as DLC when the final film hit cinemas, but has since been cancelled. There's still at least 30 hours of game here if you want to 100% it.

Splatoon falls to its lowest price yet

While you could have got it fractionally cheaper with a (now expired) voucher code, this listing is the cheapest we've seen for Splatoon. It beats the next best price elsewhere by £6, which is a huge saving. In our review we said that Splatoon was "approachable for newcomers and enjoyable for old hands" thanks to its fresh approach to third person shooters. With new maps and matchmaking functionality added in recent months, it really has become an essential purchase for Wii U owners. Cheers to BuzzDuraband for the heads-up!

Get LEGO The Hobbit on Wii U for £8.99

Here's one of the lowest prices we've seen the Wii U version of LEGO The Hobbit fall to. It beats the next cheapest deal by around £2 overall. Of course, there is a reason why this one has fallen in price so quickly - it isn't finished, and never will be. Levels based on the third film, The Battle of the Five Armies, were supposed to be patched in as DLC, but that has since been cancelled. As a result you won't get the complete Bilbo Baggins experience, but there's still at least 30 hours of the usual LEGO fun to be had here if you do decide you want to begin that unexpected journey. Thanks to Buzz for the find!

The Wonderful 101 holds its value at £17.86

The Wonderful 101 has barely dropped in price at all over the last year, so you may just have to take the plunge if you fancy a bit of this zany Wii U title. Today's offer is about £10 cheaper than most retailers, so you'd get most of your money back if you sold it on afterwards.

You can watch a month's worth of trailers for this game and you'll still have no idea what the hell is going on. I mean, what is this? Thankfully Jon has the knowledge for you in his review and highly rates this Wii U exclusive.

Get Yoshi's Wooly World on Wii U for just £24.75

Here's yet another chance to get Yoshi's Wooly World for under £25, with TGC's latest deal beating the next cheapest offer elsewhere by a few founds. In our review we said that "Yoshi's Woolly World reminds us that there's no shame in creating a wonderful toy. Beautifully crafted with love, innovation and attention to detail, it's a joy to play with - not just play." If that isn't enough to convince the Wii U owners out there to give it a whirl, perhaps the creative level design, challenging levels, and copious collectables to find might sway you. Thanks to robtallica @ HUKD!

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.

Lego Dimensions story trailer makes it hard to resist

Parents, do not let your children see this trailer! There's no way they'll not want a piece of Lego Dimensions after seeing this. And how are you going to play it if you have to share with the little blighters?

Today's trailer gives us the biggest look yet at the story for Lego Dimensions, the new name in the toys-to-life genre that we're already trading in our Skylanders and Disney Infinity tat for. The mind-boggling mashup of characters and worlds including Batman, Lord of the Rings, Back to the Future and The Wizard of Oz looks like the sort of toybox-inspired fun that's going to be a blast to play. It's not going to be cheap, but we've hunted down the best deals for preorders if you want to get involved at launch. You'll save a small fortune compared to an impulse buy on the high street too.

Bayonetta 2 is a Wii U classic and only £18.72 or £21.99 for Special Edition

Bayonetta 2 is taking a while to come down, but this £18.72 deal is the lowest I've seen it in a while as the game makes a rare sub-£20 appearance. Better yet, why not pick up the Special Edition (including the first game) for a few quid more at £21.99.

Bayonetta 2 is considered to be the best melee action title in years, probably the best since well, the first Bayonetta. So if you're a new Wii U owner, this should probably be your first stop. Sure the story's pants and Bayonetta looks way too much like Sarah Palin, but the combotastic gameplay is amongst the best the genre's seen.

Rare(ish) Marth Amiibo available from £9.92

Been looking for a Marth Amiibo? Well, Amazon Prime members, stop watching Mad Men for five minutes and grab one of these for just £9.92. Non-Prime members can pick up one for £11.95.

I'm pretty sure the Marth Amiibo was rare at some point. Not as much nowadays apparently as they can be found on ebay for between £15 and £20. Naturally, this Amazon deal is the best option by far as they're selling them under the RRP. And they won't be some dodgy knock-off with droopy faces.
