I'll be picking up New Super Mario/Luigo Bros. I have the standard Mario version and I know the Luigi version is rock hard but it would be nice to have.

Sadly, I think the Luigi version will be download only! :(

Its harder than the main game, but a far cry from rock hard in my opinion. I felt that for a game that was promoted as a hard(er) version of the Wii U game they should have really cut loose with making even harder courses on par with the Japanese version of Super Mario Bros 2 or the Super Special levels in Mario World. Its still a fantastic game though, one of my favourites for the platform.

Nice! I might pick up 'Lego Undercover' as the price has never dropped since launch; sadly I already own the rest...

Definitely going to get Starfox Zero at launch - does anyone know if Nintendo are planning on bringing out Peppy Hare and Slippy Toad Amiibo?
They had an idea for an Arwing amiibo that can change into the walker mode but it seems no new amiibo are planned for the game. You can however tap the Fox amiibo and it lets you play as a SNES Arwing as well as "other surprises" promised.

There was a disc version that was only available in console bundles that had both NSMB U and the Lugi game on 1 disc. To buy it in CeX would cost you £55 but now the budget version will put an end to that. :lol:

I've gone for the first print version with Starfox Guard. I think Starfox Guard looks like good fun.

I want to go for the first print version as well. Does Nintendo take payment up front though? As I don't want to pay now for the game since its not due out for another month...

Got my first print order in earlier, looks like a decent bundle.

Nintendo take payment on dispatch, get ordering :D

Really? They should probably change the working on the order confirmation page which basically makes it sound like payment is taken straight away... Thanks for the heads up, time to get my order in!

Yeah I've noticed that as well, makes out that you will be charged immediately but I've pre order quite a bit from them and always get charged a day before dispatch

Hopfully you got the order in as it's now sold out, only available in the £80 bundle now.

Just placed my order now, it was still listed as available (the £50 version). Nintendo usually restock prior to launch anyway. Project Zero 5 sold out but was then back in stock shortly after (which was when I grabbed it).

Loving these Nintendo LE's for the Wii U. Really nice box art, excellent extras (in this case, SF Guard) and best of all, they are nicely priced as opposed to be doing insanely expensive LE's which have rubbish content.

Saw this one coming. Sold my Wii U in December. I will pick one up again when they get real cheap. Looks like E3 will be big this year

This is going to cause a panic rush for certain accessories isnt it? Might have to pick up that gamepad battery before people slap £50+ on them or something crazier...
