Nintendo looks to spark Wii sales with Just Dance, Skylanders bundles
The new bundles will go on sale on November 4
Only a little over a week after announcing a Wii price drop to $129, Nintendo of America has decided to try to entice consumers with new Wii bundles in advance of the Wii U launch. Ubisoft and Activision have partnered with Nintendo to sell bundles including Just Dance 4 and Skylanders Giants, respectively.
Starting November 4, consumers can choose from one bundle including Just Dance 4, a white Wii console with matching Wii Remote Plus and Nunchuk controllers, offered for $129.99, or a bundle including Skylanders Giants, a blue Wii console with matching Wii Remote Plus and Nunchuk controllers, one Portal of Power, two Skylanders characters and one exclusive Giant Skylander, all for $149.99 - while supplies last.
"These bundles give consumers a way to enjoy some of the hottest new games for this generation's most popular console at an attractive price," said Steve Singer, Nintendo of America's vice president of Licensing. "Together with our third-party publishing partners, we're delivering maximum value for families who want to get the most for their home entertainment dollar."
Both Just Dance and Skylanders have proven to be very popular franchises and appear to be a good fit for the Wii demographic. The Just Dance franchise has sold more than 13 million on the Wii console alone, which makes it the top third-party Wii franchise of all time.
