The dreaded phrase that no child ever wants to hear; Back to School. In the meantime, Nintendo is here to make sure both children and parents have some fun before the summer season is over.
From August 26th, huge titles from both Nintendo Wii U and 3DS will be on sale for a retail price of $19.99. Joining Nintendo Selects will be:

These games are part of an already comprehensive list of Nintendo Selects, the full list on offer can be found here. Also on August 26th, a new handheld console bundle will be available exclusively to Target and Walmart stores. Super Mario Land 3D New 3DS Edition will go on sale for $149.99, which will feature Super Mario Land 3D pre-installed on the console, as well as interchangeable cover plates featuring 8-bit renditions of favourite Nintendo characters such as Link, Donkey Kong and Samus Aran.
The Wii U will also have bundle deals of its own from September 9th, being bundled together with specific Amiibos for $39.99. This will introduce players who may be new to how the Amiibo system works, by combining a certain figure with the Wii U GamePad controller for their respective game.
For example, one particular bundle includes a Pink Wooly Yoshi, which when combined with Yoshi’s Woolly World will unlock Double Yoshi. This will let players save patterns they have collected to their own individual Amiibo. The full list of Amiibo bundles can be found in the image below. This also applies to the Blue Woolly Yoshi, whilst Peach and Bowser Amiibos can be activated for Mario Party 10 to be customised in Party Mode. The Captain Toad Treasure Tracker combined with the Toad Amiibo also unlocks a hide-and-seek challenge.
