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.

Let's all play Captain Toad at Nintendo's PAX booth

As far as "games at PAX Prime I want to see" go, it's mostly a) a bunch of indies and b) whatever Nintendo's bringing to the show. While that second list is sadly missing Yoshi's Woolly World and Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, ...more
