Nintendo eShop half-price sale for fifth anniversary

Zelda! PokÚdex! Metroid Prime Trilogy!

Nintendo's eShop first opened its digital doors five years ago this week and, to celebrate, the big N will hold a big sale.


The deals begin at 3pm UK time this Friday, 9th June, and runs until 23rd June. Dozens of games will be half price, including 3DS, Wii U and Virtual Console favourites from the Zelda, Mario and Metroid franchises.

Donkey Kong 64 is £4.49, down from £8.99. Earthbound is £3.49, down from £6.99. Metroid Prime Trilogy is £8.99, down from £17.99.

More into Mario? Super Mario Galaxy 2 is £8.99 down from £17.99, Super Mario World is £2.69 down from £5.49 and Super Mario 64 is £4.49 down from £8.99.

There's also half price off of Zelda games such as A Link to the Past, Ocarina of Time, The Minish Cap, Oracle of Ages/Seasons plus Link's Awakening DX (the best Zelda).

F-Zero fan? Reminisce about the days Nintendo still made F-Zero games by picking up the SNES original for just £2.69.

The full list of titles in the sale is available to browse over on Nintendo's official site.
