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.

A Zelda Wii U would make me thankful I didn't buy a Wii U already.
Eat great, even late. Sadly, just picked up a DSi and Black 2 to play with my daughter, who has a 3DS and White 1, but I would totally hop on board the WiiU wagon for this bundle (and Earthbound) if it is reasonable.
Glad I haven't gotten a WiiU yet. Now I can get the Wind Waker bundle without wasting money and a WiiU!
That Wind Waker bundle is going to make me hate myself because I am for sure getting a PS4 and I likely won't pass this bundle up.
It makes perfect sense to have a Pokemon bundle. I'm sure a ton of people have been waiting to get a 3DS just for that game.
Announce a WWHD console or bundle, and I'll preorder now. Been holding off on a Wii U until something like this :P
This has been rumored for awhile now GI.... but I digress, this is great.
