Nintendo is dumping the basic Wii U set in Japan

Moving forward

We may have seen the last of the 8GB Wii U. Nintendo has revealed, by way of their website, that they are eliminating the basic edition of the console in Japan. It’s been fairly elusive all across the world as it is, and Nintendo has been heavily favoring a series of Deluxe bundles — to the point where it feels like every six months there’s a new one.

To make up for it, Nintendo is adding a new 32GB bundle for 30,000 Yen.
