I found it for 40$ with free shipping and some tax with both sites. Although, you might be able to get it for cheaper ( Ithink around 30$) with the GCU membership with Bestbuy, but you'll have to comment and let everyone know if it applies to that.

Yes it applies. What's weird is so does any accessory I add to my cart as well.

 

Found why, probably already posted but here is the link.

Good price on Tropical Freeze.  I wonder if Nintendo games are finally going to come down from their pricing this generation.  There have been some good sales on Wii U games in the last year.

No. Not first party aka Mario at least. Can't find Super Mario 3D World for under 50 new and it's been out since late last year.

It's only been out a few months though.  Wonderful 101 is like 20 bucks.  Zelda WW is 40.  Wii Fit U with meter and balance board is $54.

 

In general I agree though, Nintendo is trying their typical strategy of keeping prices high.  It doesn't seem to be working that well this time around with their low sales.

w101 is clearance and 2nd party. Zelda was released over a decade ago and its a rippoff at that price. Wii Fit U was free if you registered it months ago

What's your point, are you saying that these Nintendo games will never go down in price below 40 because Nintendo even though sales are shit?

Im debating between this at $39.99 new (using amazon credit) or about $31.xx used from GS (using GS credit). They have it at $44.99 used and with birthday coupon and PUR it will be 31.xx plus tax.

Can you use ONLY a pro controller on DKC, or does it have random touch moments like Mario 3d?

Playing with the gamepad for the first couple levels and there hasn't been any touch stuff so far.

Nope. That won't happen. Lol

Remember the prices of these Wii games after a few months? Punchout, Excitebots, Metroid: Other M, and the Gamecube remakes are just a few I can recall.

You can use the gamepad, but there's absolutely no touch stuff in any of the levels.  I believe that the gamepad even turns off entirely during gameplay.  But it works entirely with the pro controller.

The game  does not use the game pad during gameplay at all. (surprisingly)     You can  play the game on the game pad (when the TV is off) as you can  with every other WiiU game, but that's it.

I've been waiting for this sale. I emailed Best Buy about them not including Watchdogs for WiiU in the $10 preorder promotion and they sent me the $10 code for free. Add that with GCU and a $5 voucher and I only paid $18.35

I'm glad people are able to get it cheaper but it appears this was not a big seller which makes me sad.

Mario 3D World has been under $50 a few times. It was $40 at Target last month and $9.98 at BJ's Wholesale around 4 weeks ago.

It's just not a popular type of game/difficulty.

ok target one time and it was the only time it was that cheap and your other reference to bj wholesale doesn't even count since bj is clearance out most there game departments at stores. and there a big different between a sale and a store getting rid of a department within it stores.

Was $40 at Target last month.  Target is having a B2G1 next week so if you want both get them then and pick up a filler game.

Wut?
 

"Nintendo reports that both the Wii U and 3DS increased in sales over February of last year; the Wii U grew by 180% and the 3DS by 25%.

 

Nintendo attributes increased sales of the Wii U in the US to the success of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. Nintendo's follow-up to their popular platformer Donkey Kong Country Returns sold 130,000 copies (including digital and physical sales) [during its first 8 days of release], and it was the number four best-selling SKU for February."

 

Source- Gamespot.com

 

For a system not doing too hot in sales, that doesn't sound very bad to me.

 

 

Oh cool, another twenty year old series...

Oh cool, the same twenty four year old Nintendo hater posting. Seriously, 24 years old. I really thought you were about 12 with your immature posts. What do you gain from posting dumb posts like this?
