Nintendo's next home console, the Wii U, will launch in New Zealand and Australia on 30 November.
Pricing has not been announced for New Zealand, but Australian pricing sees the Wii U with 8GB storage coming in at AU$350 (NZ$445), and the 32GB storage version at AU$430 (NZ$547).
The 32GB version also comes with a stand for the gamepad and console, a charging cradle for the gamepad, and the 'NintendoLand' pack of games that the company showed off at E3.
"The Wii U Premium Pack also features a reward programme called Nintendo Network Premium that grants points for digital purchases in Nintendo eShop," Nintendo Australia said in a statement.
"Valued at around 10% of the original Nintendo eShop price, this credit can be used against future purchases once you reach a minimum of 500 points."
Launch titles include FIFA 13, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, ZombiU, Rayman Legends, and New Super Mario Bros. U.
Nintendo also announced that the sequel to Bayonetta, creatively titled Bayonetta 2, was coming and would be exclusive to the Wii U.
