The lights are on
Leaked retail documents show that Zelda and Pokémon fans who have been waiting to adopt Nintendo's newest consoles might have an easy point of entry very soon.
According to a report from Destructoid, a 32 GB Wii U bundle packaged with the upcoming The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD should be available soon for $349.99. The same report also says that special red and blue Pokémon X and Y 3DS bundles are coming, as well.
No release dates were offered for the bundles, but The Wind Waker HD, Pokémon X, and Pokémon Y are all releasing in October, so if these bundles do show up, they should be available then.
Our TakeNew bundles certainly seem plausible. Nintendo has a history of bundling things together. The colors supposedly being offered for the Pokémon bundles are available now, so it sounds like the hardware itself might not have any special markings or anything like that. If the hypothetical Wii U is Zelda themed in some way, I may have to consider replacing my current Wii U. My Zelda fandom is that dangerous.

might be a good way to get x or y :)

Nintendo don't fail me.
I hope Wind Waker gives us the option to turn off or tune down the bloom.
If there is a themed console in the Zelda bundle I will buy 2.
Well this is just genius. Now people who waited are totally going to be getting a Wii U. Whoever thinks that Wii U will fail is an ignorant moron.
OMG if they come out with a Zelda styled Wii U...... I don't think my wallet can handle this holiday!
Yay, another reason to get one of these!
Damn it! This always happens to me. I get a system and several months later an awesome bundle comes out.
A Zelda themed Wii U will be awesome. Bundling the game with the Wii U is a great idea. Hopefully this boosts sales. I'm sure the 3ds XLs packaged with the pokemon games will sell like hotcakes.
