imageNew Super Mario Bros. U and Nintendo Land will be launch titles in Japan.


New Super Mario Bros. U will cost 5,985 yen ($77). Nintendo Land will be a bit less at  4,935 yen ($63). Just to put this in comparison New Super Mario Bros. for Wii was 5,800 yen when it first came out. Wii Party was 4,800 yen and larger titles like The Last Story are 6,800 yen. The pricing structure is about the same as Wii software.


The Classic Controller Pro is 5,040 yen. Wii remotes in white, black, red, blue or pink are 3,800 yen and the Wii U GamePad stand set (charging + play stands) is 1,890 yen.

    how about the premium and standard set? what the hell is that?

    • malek86

      Premium includes pretty much everything like stands and stuff, 32GB of memory, a Premium Nintendo Network account, and costs 30.000 yen before taxes. The Basic set includes pretty much just the console and gamepad, has 8GB, and sells at 25.000 yen plus taxes.

      Still not sure if the Basic set includes AC adapters or not. Hopefully yes.

      • Niermyico

        The first peripherals that you explained are for the Premium, you put Basic though.

        Edit: Nvm. It that it does. Nvm. xD

        • malek86

          Whoops, sorry. Edited. Also are you sure it doesn’t include adapters?

          • Niermyico

            Edit: Lol scratch my last statement.

  • $30632660

    I need to know what these prices for the first two Wii U games are in US Dollars.Is it around the same price as a Wii game for Japan?

    • malek86

      We don’t know yet, but those prices are similar to the Wii launch games, so I’m expecting $49 and $39.

    • I added a comparison to the post. Hope that helps!

      • $30632660

        That helps a lot.It seems Nintendo is at least keeping their games around the same price as the Wii.3rd Parties are a mystery though ;/

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Hmm….. the fact that Nintendo is not part of the bundle here is makes me feels that this is a mistep here.T_T

    I mean, Nintendo Land here should be what Wii Sport be for the Wii isn’t it? I don’t really can see how people are going to spend some money for that game when Mario is also released as launch there.

    • British_Otaku

      Wii Sports was never bundled with the Wii in Japan and it is still possible that Nintendo Land may or may not be bundled in other regions.

      Even without being bundled, it is easy to see what is the big popular game at the release or ask staff to find out. That’s how Kinect and Move titles got pushed despite a big library having a headstart over them.

      • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

        O.o tx for the info here.^_^ I never noticed that here as when i bought my Wii which is the U.S region, i get the Wii Sports bundled there.

        …..THinking further lol. Yeah, for my Japanese Wii, i never get any Wii Sports there but i thought that is because i asked for other game lol.^_^

      • ShawnOtakuSomething

        ^^^ this man speaks the truth 

    • SantiagodelosSantos

      To be fair, Nintendo land looks MUCH deeper than Wii sports ever was and it also looks much higher quality. It would be smart to bundle it with the system though to help sales

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    When Nintendo Land was announced.
    “That looks nice”
    Learn it’s not packaged w/ WiiU.
    “WHO WANTS THAT CRAP!”  My little bro 

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Lol, my reaction there.T_T Well….. see my post below there for the reason lol.^_^

      • ShawnOtakuSomething

        I guess there is a chance it will be 
         bundled state side also 

  • masaYT

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World
