Nintendo is putting together two new Wii U console bundles for the holiday shopping season.

In addition to the currently available limited edition Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD bundle, the Deluxe Wii U model will, as of November 1st, come in a new bundle containing New Super Mario Bros. U and New Super Luigi U on a single disc. The copies of the Mario and Luigi games will replace the existing Deluxe Set pack-in game Nintendo Land, which will have its retail price (in stores and on the eShop) dropped to $29.99, also starting on November 1st.

Both of these new bundles will sell for $299.99.
