Official Wii U local pricing revealed

Local Nintendo distributor Core Gaming Systems has fired out a press release detailing the official pricing for the upcoming Wii U console. The system will be available in three different bundles when it launches in South Africa on 30 November 2012.

The Wii U Basic Pack will cost R3, 999.99 at retail. This version comes with an 8GB Wii U console and a Wii U GamePad in white. The Wii U Premium Pack comes with a 32GB black Wii U console, a Wii U GamePad and a copy of Nintendo Land for R4, 599.99 at retail. Finally, the Limited Edition ZombiU Wii U Premium Pack comes with a black 32GB Wii U console, a Wii U GamePad, a Pro Controller and a copy of Ubisoft’s ZombiU for R4, 999.99.

Perhaps a little higher than we’re sure many people were hoping for, but that’s the official word from Core. For comparative prices from other regions of the world, check out our Wii U Newsplosion piece from a few weeks ago.
