Nintendo Black Friday sale expands to Switch, 3DS, and Wii U eShop

Nintendo already discussed the hardware deals it has in store for Black Friday, but aside from mention of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Explorer’s Edition, it didn’t really delve into any software deals. That all changed today, as Nintendo revealed a rather long list of eShop discounts that are going live today. The list includes discounts for Switch, 3DS, and Wii U games, so you can probably find something regardless of the device you own.

The bad news is that the deals are rather slim on the Switch side of things. The only first-party Nintendo game that’s on sale is 1-2 Switch, and even then, it’s only being offered at a 20% discount. For the most part, the Switch discounts aren’t very deep, but if you’ve been holding out on a couple of specific titles, this could be your chance to grab them for a few dollars off. Here’s the full list of discounts across all three consoles:

As you can see, some of Nintendo’s more notable franchises are missing from this list. In fact, most of them are – though we have a couple of Zelda games from the Game Boy Color era and a few Mario spin-offs, Nintendo’s presence on the list is mostly limited to less popular franchises like Star Fox and Rhythm Heaven.

Still, this is a good opportunity to pick up some indie gems you may have missed the first time around. SteamWorld Dig is an excellent, if short, first entry in the series, while other titles like Axiom Verge, Shovel Knight, and Guacamelee have all managed to build sizable fanbases of their own over the years.

This sale is live now across all three platform and will actually run until December 11, giving you plenty of time to decide on which deals you want to take advantage of. Is there anything you’ve got your eye on? Head down to the comments section and let us know!
