Nintendo has 'no plans' for Wii U Ambassador program

S. Prell, @SamPrell

Nintendo has said there are "no plans" to implement a 3DS-esque Ambassador program on the Wii U, according to a statement made to Wii U Daily. Nintendo recently announced a $50 price change on the Wii U deluxe bundle, which made Wii U Daily question if the company might offer an Ambassador program, as they did when the 3DS dropped from $250 to $170.

According to a Nintendo rep, however, the Ambassador program is "only available to any Nintendo 3DS owner who purchased their system before August 12, 2011 and there are no plans for a similar program for Wii U." The representative also apologized, stating that, "I know this isn't what you were hoping for."

Oh well, at least there's that snazzy-looking The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD Wii U bundle coming soon!
