Wii U’s South African Launch



With the launch of Nintendo’s newest console – the Wii U – just a few days away, the console’s South African launch experiences have been announced.

The Wii U launches on 30 November and will be available in three packs: the Basic Pack (R3,999), the Premium Pack (R4,599) and the ZombiU Limited Edition Premium Pack (R4,999). You can read more about the details of each pack here.

Wii U ZombiU Premium Pack The ZombiU Premium Pack comes with a 32GB Internal Storage Console, a Wii U GamePad Controller, ZombiU and a Wii U Pro Controller.

The main difference between the Premium Pack and the ZombiU Premium Pack is that instead of receiving the Nintendo Land title with the console, you’ll get ZombiU and a Wii U Pro Controller in the box.
