If you’re still sitting on the fence when it comes to owning a Wii U, you might want to take a look at this surprise bundle from Nintendo and Best Buy.

The game and console maker has packaged a Deluxe 32GB Wii U with Nintendo Land pre-installed and a download code for the upcoming Splatoon. Splatoon, if you haven’t been paying attention, is a unique shooter where players are charged with covering the battlefield in paint on their path to victory.

Splatoon Wii U Bundle

This bundle will sell for $299.99, the standard price for the Wii U Deluxe version, and it will launch alongside the release of Splatoon on May 29.

This is exclusive to Best Buy, though it can be scored both online and at retail locations.

Splatoon does look fantastic, though I still haven’t had a chance to try it personally. I was either not assigned to it at E3 or didn’t want to stand in the insane two hour line at PAX East. Either way, it’s a mystery to me so far. It looks good, but that’s about all I can offer in terms of opinions.

We’ll have more on the game as it comes.
