Nintendo of America Launches Weekly eShop Price Promotions

This week is all about the Zelda franchise

While many announcements in today's regional Nintendo Direct broadcasts were largely similar in both North America and Europe, one promotion confirmed by Nintendo of America's Reggie Fils-Aime may make some European gamers jealous. It's been confirmed that there'll be weekly eShop promotions covering the 3DS and Wii U platforms, with a different character featured each time around.

A special site has been launched to announce the details — — with The Legend of Zelda's Link being the featured hero first time out. From 14th November to 21st November the following games will be available at a discount in North America.

Wii U Virtual Console

The Legend of Zelda — $3.49 (normally $4.99)

Zelda II: The Adventure of Link — $3.49 (normally $4.99)

3DS Virtual Console

The Legend of Zelda — $3.49 (normally $4.99)

Zelda II: The Adventure of Link — $3.49 (normally $4.99)

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX — $3.99 (normally $5.99)

The next three weeks will feature Mega Man, Mario and Donkey Kong, in that order. The promotions will clearly focus on Virtual Console offerings — though there's some scope for the occasional recent title with Mario and Donkey Kong — but could provide some pleasing discount goodies up until the end of the year.

Will you be picking up any of the discounted Zelda titles this week, North American gamers?
