During the Nintendo Direct for Japan a few weeks ago, Nintendo announced a new bundle for the region. This bundle includes a white premium edition Wii U, a Wiimote Plus controller, sensor bar, and the current Wii Sports Club titles pre-installed. At the time, no release date or price was given for the bundle, but an update today has shown that the bundle will retail for 30,000 yen ($292 USD) and the bundle will be released on March 27th.
There’s no information on whether this bundle will be made available outside of Japan, but it’s possible considering Wii Sports Club are the bundled games. If this bundle does gain traction outside of Japan, it might be the bundle Nintendo needs to re-attract the casual crowd that originally purchased the Wii for the Wii Sports included title.
