The festive season is upon us and, well, it's not much fun going out to the shops with the bad weather and crazy crowds. It's the ideal time to look at downloads for new games, then, and the eShop has its usual wide array of discounts.

In Europe our Nintendo Download Update exhaustively lists all the festive discounts, but Nintendo of America no longer does that in its press release, tasking us with browsing the eShop and official deals website. As it's the festive sale and there's a lot on offer, though we thought we'd list the discounts currently available in North America in a convenient list.

There are a lot of games on reduced prices in North America right now - those in bold are those that we think are well worth a look and have scored well in our reviews, but we recommend considering the whole list.

Let's get on with it.

Wii U eShop

3DS eShop


Phew, that's a hefty list - are any of you in North America planning to pick up some of these deals?
