Nintendo UK Outlines September's Dazzling Zelda eShop Discounts

Plenty to be saved on the run up to Hyrule Warriors

If you've already consulted our European Nintendo Download report this morning you'll be aware that Nintendo is running a discount promotion to mark the release of Hyrule Warriors later this month.

The promotion runs for the majority of September and will see Zelda games across the 3DS and Wii U eShops getting generous reductions.

This week — the 4th to the 11th, to be precise — you'll be able to pick up Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D and Zelda: Wind Waker HD for £25.99 and £32.99 respectively. The original Legend of Zelda and Zelda II: The Adventure of Link will also see 30 percent price reductions on both consoles.

From the 11th to the 18th, the Game Boy Color titles Zelda: Link's Awakening DX, Zelda: Oracle of Ages and Zelda: Oracle of Seasons will be reduced to £3.59 on the 3DS eShop. On the Wii U eShop, you'll be able to get Zelda: A Link to the Past and Zelda: Minish Cap for 30 percent less than normal — £3.43 and £4.49 respectively.

In the final week of the campaign — 19th to the 26th September — Zelda: A Link Between Worlds will see 23 percent slashed from its RRP, making it a very reasonable £30.99.

To cap it all off, if you download any of the above titles during the promotional period you'll be entitled to a 10 percent discount on Hyrule Warriors itself — when purchased from the Wii U eShop, of course — making it just £35.99. This discount only applies between the 19th and the 26th.

Nintendo is clearly going all-out to make sure people get as excited as possible about Hyrule Warriors — will you be picking up any of these titles in light of the price reductions? Let us know with a comment.
