Fire Emblem 3DS Bundle

On February 4th, 2013 the latest in the Fire Emblem series comes in the United States. Fire Emblem Awakening will continue the turn based series by following Lord Chrom and how he gathers an army of companions to save the world from a rising evil. Man does that sound like an over used plot device. But lets admit, it is not the destination we play games for, it is the journey. In this tradition choices you make have an effect on the game play. Say there is a character that you have become really attached to and then they die in battle? Well they are dead for the rest of the game, so be careful.

Click for a bigger view of this awesome 3DS.OK, to be honest I have never played an Fire Emblem game. And turn based games are not my forey. So why would I care about this? Well the release is part of a 3DS bundle. And this bundle, like a number of other bundles it has a special design on it. This blue 3DS has a freaking dragon on it. I don't even play my current 3DS and I want this bundle. Look forward to it at an MSRP of $199.99 in a few weeks. If you are more interested in the game check out more information on it at

More Wii Bundles


It appears that Nintendo is not going to let the Wii go quietly into the dark. Just a short time ago they announced a price drop and a new bundle for those that had yet to purchase a Wii, and now they have added fuel to that fire.  Today Nintendo has announced two more Wii bundles.

The first of these bundles is a White Wii that will come with a matching Wii Remote Plus and Nunchuck as well as Ubisofts Just Dance 4. This bundle has an MSRP of $129.99. The other bundle is a blue Wii with matching Wii Remote Plus and Nunchuck. Its big difference is that it will come with Skylanders Giant, one portal of power, two Skylanders characters and one exclusive Giant Skylander. This system has an MSRP of $149.99 attached to it. More money for more physical items I supposed.

Both of these bundles are set to be in stores on Nov 4, 2012 and will be availble in limited quantities. At least that is how I read "while supplied last" in the press release. What the starting supplies are though is anybody guess. 

New Wii Bundle

So what do we have here?  Well it looks like a new bundle for the Nintendo Wii.  It appears to have a black Wii system that is set to sit sideways.  We have the "New Super Mario Bros Wii", a Super Mario Galaxy soundtrack, and black Wii-Motion Plus with Nunchuck.  This is all coming out for $149.99 on October 23.  Now be warned though, this system does sacrifice a function that many have loved.  This new system does not support the Gamecube or it's accessories.  So no "Super Smash Bros Melee" with a Gamecube controller.

This does not mean they are fully removing backward compatibility (yet).  They are going to continue selling the Mario Kart Bundle for the same price.  So if you have any Gamecube accessories laying around, for the old bundle, otherwise this new bundle looks pretty nice.

You can check out the full press release after the jump.
