Nintendo kicks off Legend of Zelda eShop sale, 30% off most games and more

by Daniel VuckovicJanuary 25, 2017

Nintendo has announced a new Legend of Zelda themed sale for both the Wii U and 3DS eShop. Nearly every game is on sale at 30% off, it’s not the biggest discount ever but Nintendo hardly has sales on it’s first party fare anyway.

The sale is for My Nintendo members only, so you’ll want to be signed up to get the discounts. The sale begins alongside this week’s download update at 1am AEDT on January 27th. The sale will run until February 10th in Australia and New Zealand.

There’s not just games on sale either, all the DLC for Hyrule Warriors and Hyrule Warriors Legends is also on sale. Nintendo 3DS Home Menu themes are also on sale but at a further reduced 50% off.

At this point I’d just like to remind readers that currently we do not know what, if any Virtual Console content will transfer over to the Switch. While these games will always remain playable on either the Nintendo 3DS or Wii U you buy them on, they might be stuck there and you’ll need to repurchase them should they be on the Switch as well. Something to think about.
