The price of the Wii U Deluxe model is dropped from $349 to $299. The console comes with a 32GB hard drive, a Zelda-themed GamePad, a digital copy of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD and a digital version of the Zelda Hyrule Historia book for that price. Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime explains the price drop:
The price decline is pretty straightforward. Really, the focus on heightening the value for Wii U is now that we are in a position where we’ve got a regular pace of great software. Now’s the time to make the Wii U even more affordable and heighten the value.
