Source Digital Spy. Nintendo's Wii U has been given a significant price cut by supermarket chain Asda. The retailer has slashed the cost of the 8GB basic bundle by £50 to £199, while the premium Nintendo Land package has been priced at £249. Online vendor ShopTo has also reduced the price of the basic bundle to less than £200 to help stimulate sales, The news follows calls from UK retailers including Grainger Games, Tesco and Sainsbury's for a price reduction from Nintendo itself and more "killer" software to combat dwindling sales. Nintendo recently lowered its Wii U sales forecast after lower than expected festive sales, cutting the number of anticipated Wii U console sales from 5.5 million units to 4 million units by the end of the financial year. Despite the setback, Nintendo has ruled out a Wii U price cut in the near future. The company recently announced a host of new Wii U games as part of a Nintendo Direct conference. Highlights include two Legend of Zelda games, including a Wind Waker remake, and new Mario Kart and 3D Super Mario games.
