Im seeing conflicting information about the Nintendo Wii U 32GB ZombiU Premium Pack. Game and HMV say it comes with a Pro Controller. But others dont.

It appeared as though the ZombiU Premium Pack included everything from the Premium Pack plus ZombiU and the Pro Controller. However, Nintendo UK on Twitter said that ZombiU is included instead of Nintendoland. Was hoping it came with both games but doesn't seem to be.

Apparently you don't get NintendoLand in the box with the premium version that includes ZombiU.

http://nintendoscene.com/2012/09/15/wii-u-zombiu-premium-pack-bundle-does-not-feature-nintendo-land/

It was confirmed by Nintendo Europe on Twitter.

Scott but with the Minigames you know what you are expecting and you will know they will be fun as it this this years Wii Sports. So nintendo land is the safer option.

Yeah, I agree with this. Nintendo Land was developed and produced by Nintendo EAD. It will be will be the Wii U's equivalent to Wii Sports, but I think will be much more immersive.

As much as I want Zombi U I'm still slightly skeptical, so will wait for the reviews before I buy it. However, I don't usually wait for reviews on N-EAD games, as you know they will have a high quality finish, and were made for the console.

not sure if i'll get this or the nintendoland one tbh, zombi U will probably get a price drop much sooner than nintendoland so might just save a few by waiting

Exactly Scrap. ZombiU I would expect to drop in price a lot quicker than Nintendo Land. I have both consoles ordered and will either cancel the ZombiU one or eBay it.

Also, NintendoLand is up for pre-order at RRP of 45.99! ZombiU is only 37.99 in some places.

Bloody hell, 45 quid for some mini games seems excessive
After the execrable Carnival Funfair Games etc I'm not sure I want to pay for that
I thought Nintendoland would come with the console (kinda like Wii Sports did).
I dont know if I'll get a Wii U (yet?) as I still have my old Gamecube games and want to play them.

Really, really, really like the look of the WiiU now. I so want something new to play on, but at the same time, the price is (imo) a little excessive.

I have pre-ordered the ZombiU bundle, as I'm really not intrested in Nintendo Land which is about 12 mini games, whether they have different levels, at the end of the day it's still 12 mini games, so for an extra 30 I would take ZombiU and a pro controller any day.

I work for a specialist gaming retailer, and the official word we have from Nintendo is that it does come with the Pro Controller, but it WONT come with Nintendoland, to get Nintendoland you will need to buy it seperately or not buy the ZombiU pack.

Im gonna get it seperate, coz if you get the normal 32GB Pack, you wont get the pro controller...... its swings and roundabouts really!

This is the package i'm after, it does come with the pro controller.

Who's offering this cheapest so far? I think it was Sainsburys last time i checked.

Do you still need to use a sensor bar with this new controller or is the one that's in the box for wii backwards compatibility or U games that use wii controllers?

Not 100% sure if the Wii U gamepad will use the sensor bar, but there will be times where you will be using the Wii Remotes as well, i.e: Chase Mii/Mario Chase and TLOZ: Battle Quest in Nintendo Land.

I reckon for a future Zelda game, they will stick to using the Wii Remote Plus for the Sword control (they'd be stupid not to) and have a completley clear TV screen so you'd have all the information on the gamepad, which you'd also use for inventory for items and gear, (they'd also be stupid not to bring back the lens of truth)
