For probably most, if not all of you guys, buying Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U or the Nintendo 3DS might come around... fairly close or slightly above $100 (or $0 if you're not buying it, $40-ish if you're buying the Nintendo 3DS version only, $60-ish if you're buying the Wii U version). However, I like to be different for some reason; here's what my wish list on Amazon looks like for the upcoming game.
On the Wii U side of things:
- I need to buy an actual Wii U, obviously. The only bundle I saw worth buying was the one that came with New Super Mario Bros. U. I'm sort of hoping another bundle deal comes about by the time I actually get around to buying a Wii U.
- I feel like buying some Wii remotes, just in case I bother buying some old Wii games. I decided on getting two Wii remotes, official brand, with the cute Mario and Luigi designs. I'm a sucker for that kind of stuff, sadly.
- I'll need two nunchucks to compliment the Wii remotes. Well, maybe I won't need them. I might feel like playing Super Mario Galaxy 2, if I ever decide on buying that (not included in this wish list).
- If I want to play some virtual console games through the Wii menu, I should probably invest in a Wii Classic Controller Pro.
- While I'm at, maybe I should get the Wii U Pro Controller.
- I don't want my Wii U GamePad getting scratches, so I looked into buying some kind of screen protector for it. I think it comes with extra stuff, but I mostly want the screen protector.
- I also don't want my GamePad to break, should I drop it. That Nerf Armour for the GamePad looks pretty snazzy, too.
- I can't play Super Smash Bros. without using a GameCube controller (unless we're talking about Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo 64), so let's go ahead and buy the Wii U GameCube Controller Adapter and four Super Smash Bros. themed GameCube controllers. Why four? I'm hoping I'll meet someone in real life to play with, though I don't know that many people; at least I have three more controllers if I end up breaking one due to some kind of rage.
- Oh, I should probably buy Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.
- It would be nice to play Super Smash Bros. Brawl again, too. I really hope that, now that the Wii U will have GameCube support, Nintendo adds GameCube titles to the virtual shop. It'd be great to download and play Super Smash Bros. Melee.
Here's the wish list, itself: Super Smash Bros. Wii U
Here's the total: Super Smash Bros. Wii U - Total
Luckily, the Nintendo 3DS version of this wish list doesn't look all that bad. I basically decided on getting the Nintendo 3DS XL that is bundled with Mario & Luigi Dream Team, though I still hope for another bundle deal by the time I get around to actually buying the Nintendo 3DS. There's also that newer Nintendo 3DS that's coming out, so I'm really at a loss as of what I'm going to do; I really hope that newer model will be out before then. Otherwise, I got a screen protector, a starter kit for added measure, and Super Smash Bros. for 3DS.

I haven't added any other games (besides Super Smash Bros. Brawl), so the price will naturally increase should I decide on getting something else, like Mario Kart or Animal Crossing.
On the bright side, storage won't (or might) not be an issue. I already own a 32GB microSD card (that comes with an adapter), and I own a 2TB Seagate Backup+ external hard drive that is fully compatible with the Wii U. I also won't need to buy a TV as I already own a 51" Samsung plasma with a Samsung soundbar + subwoofer attached; so I'm expecting Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U to play and sound beautifully.

Realistically, I have no idea what all I will be able to get. I could end up buying everything on my list, or I might end up buying just the console and game. I'll find out by November, hopefully. So until then!
