The Wii U Deluxe Set will be priced at $299, dropping $50 off the price, come this September 20. Use that to play all of the new Nintendo titles coming at the end of the year (list below).

In related news, a new The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD Wii U bundle -- which you heard about first right here on Destructoid -- will be available on the same date, for the same price -- so that's the one you'll get. You'll get a black Wii U Deluxe, a GamePad with gold lettering, a gold Hyrule crest, a download code for a digital version of Hyrule Historia, and a download code for the game itself. Nice.

Hit the jump for Nintendo's fall release schedule.
