Every so often I read comments questioning where the sales are on the eShop. These are people who obviously haven't signed on to the eShop for close to a year now because every week there have been temporary and permanent price drops on the service. Right now, for example, there are over 50 games on sale in the "Price Drop" section of the eShop.

This thread is to list price drops and sales so that people who may not otherwise see them will know, especially since they are often not included in the press release Nintendo puts out on Thursdays. If any of you ever notice something getting a price drop (sometimes they aren't listed in the "Price Drop" section), please let us know by posting in this thread.

It's there, but for some reason it's not the first one listed. Usually they display them by most recently released, but World Conqueror's and Brunch Panic's demos are a little further down the page.

It seems you beat me to the punch in creating the topic. I was going to post the same thing since a number of people post how they're no good/any eshop sales in NA yet there's a long list like this (not the 1st time this happened). I guess more people search NL articles for sales and releases then the eshop itself, which I sometimes find weird, especially when they are on the front page at some points.

Thanks for spreading the word Klimbatize and saving my a ton of timely typing :)

Oh my arceus, in the Mexican eShop many of these games are being sold for 20 pesos. That's less than two dollars :O

These oddly discounted games are... 3D Game Collection, Murder on the Titanic, 3D Mahjongg, Gardenscapes, Funfair Party Games (from 250 to 20, omg), Jewel Match, Secret Agent Files Miami.

I'm totally getting funfair party games now.

Hmm, if I get $50 from my grandfather for Christmas (like I did last year), I may have a conundrum on my hands.

Get ALBW for $40 (physical), or get a $50 eShop card & get Starship Damrey, Attack of the Friday Monsters, Bugs vs Tanks, Chain Blaster, Family Kart 3D, Deer Hunting King, & Ikachan, and have some left over (this would also be more lucrative CN coin wise)?

Indie games? :O Even better.
Really tempted to buy a points card just for the 3DS eShop. I've been meaning to buy Chain Blaster for full price, now it's on sale? Sweet!

I got Ikachan, Family Kart 3D , Undead Bowling, Deer Hunting King.
I might get Cave Story even though I have the DSI ware version, other then that if anyone has suggestions go ahead and post some.
PS: I highly recommend Monster Shooter, a really fun game and I played 14 hours and 14 minutes in the game, got everything unlocked and upgraded, just need to rank up.

Went to go get an eShop card yesterday at Best Buy as they are on sale. A regular $20 eShop card costs $16 this week only. Anywho, came back home and took advantage of the sale on Mutant Mudds. Nintendo Life has an article saying that Renegade Kid will release 20 more levels next year as free DLC for Mutant Mudds. I believe they said it was all the levels of Mutant Mudds Deluxe. It's a fun platformer that is very addicting. Glad I took the plunge. Plus I get to support an Indie developer. :)

@Klimbatize The Sales in the Eshop have been pretty stellar over the past 6 months or so. they have offered some really good prices on great games. This holiday Season has been just great! I added 50.00 to my account yesterday to take advantage of it. I don't think we could ask for better. That Project X Zone for 14.99 is calling my name. Even though I like having carts That price is pretty darn low for what looks to be a pretty decent game. Thanks so much for the Thread and the Information, This is the kind of stuff that makes NintendoLife Great

I bought Family Carts for 3.49 last night :)

Oh cool, they're doing this again? I might stock up some more.

@Windy Yeah, the sales have enticed me to buy a few games that I was on the fence about. One of them was Attack of the Friday Monsters. Really glad I finally picked that up.
