Doesn't make much difference if the sale comes to Europe or not for me I already own them all.
Would have loved more vc to have dropped today on the e-shop but maybe by the end of e3 with a bit of luck.

Man nintendo always has the worst sales... These are not really impulsive worthy prices. I will pick up the yoshi gba game though :)

I was hoping for some games I didn't have, but whatever. Starfox is in the works and a non-ww zelda was confirmed. I'm happy enough.

Nothing for Europe? I own most of those titles already... Oh man, 30% discount on Super Mario 3D World would have been sweet. Too bad that ain't gonna happen :S

Damn, I was really hoping to see A Link Between Worlds and possibly the Super Mario Land games on sale! I guess I'll just have to buy them at full price.

@wober2

Yeah, they should be 50 percent off if they really want people champing at the bits. I'll go ahead and get Ocarina of Time 3D and Yoshi's Island, but only because I knew I'd be getting them anyway. I'm not led to go out of my way for anything I wasn't planning on.

It's a great sale for new owners... but a lot of us probably have these titles already. Still, props to Nintendo for giving it a go!

I still haven't bought Zelda VCs as I'm not sure if I'm gonna get them on my Wii U or in 3DS when I finally buy one. I'd like to get all 2D Zeldas on 3DS TBH.

Nintendo is really stepping up the sales and promotions lately. It's nice to see! The MK8 promo was great (picked up WWHD) and now I'm tempted to be spend $20 to pick up some VC games for my Wii U.

that Nintendo things Ocarina of time 3D at 27.99 its an awesome discount is one of the reasons the company is clearly out of touch... they had a great E3 but then Reggie at IGN and this and you see yahp... they are still the same clueless Nintendo

Nope I'm in Europe... and even then, the games I would pick up I already own. Now if they could discount UnEpic... now that would be epic!

Glad I didn't buy Lego Hobbit.

And I'm guessing that WW HD sale might have something to do w/ people picking it up free w/ MK8.

Still, good timing for a sale w/ all those E3 vids on the eShop. The Wii U eShop really is so much better than Wii.

I might get ocarina of time 3D so I can lighten the number of physical games.

Sad it's not for Europe......on the other hand I'm not to keen on the selection. The vc options look best and I can wait for those. Good news for Mario/Zelda fans in the US of a though =)

I will be picking up Yoshi's Island. Got to get VC games on sale during those rare times they are at a discount.

@Vriess 30% discount is not far off the price that you can just get it from cdkeys.com (£37 instead of £35 which would be 30% off).

Sonic and Wind Waker for me! Thank god I picked W101 as my free game from Mario Kart, was going back and forth between those three games.

Omg games blowout, don't have time to play it all, still working on Pikmin 3 and MK8, (and ACIV and Splinter Cell)!

I think I might get Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed on Wii U - I have it on Xbox 360 but I hate that damn thing and never touch it.

My son wants The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD and its cheaper than I have found it anywhere online, so maybe I might pick that up also.

The Yoshi's Island game looks pretty neat, I only got 10 dollars and I was planning on using it to buy the Mario Golf DLC once I buy the game. Although that sale... do you guys think I should pick up Yoshi's Island?

Everything on the list I either already downloaded or don't want... :p

EDIT: I may download LoZ for Wii-U (I already got it free on 3DS as part of the Ambassador program).

Pretty good sale. Most of these games are cheaper than you can find on amazon with the sale.
Grabbed Yoshi's Island. :D
Everything else on the list that I'd want, I already have. Considering getting Sonic Lost World, but I wasn't diggin' the demo. Maybe I'll try it again to see how I feel?

This was too good to be true
"These offers are only in North America, with no equivalents at present in Europe" Of course because we are already getting great deals like:
The legend of Zelda for 4,99€ or 7$
Super Mario World for 7,99€ or 11$
Sonic lost world for 49,99€ or 68$
