39. 99

During last week's Nintendo Direct Mini in Europe, the company revealed a promotion that will allow people who purchase Pikmin 3 from the eShop to receive a 30% discount on the digital version of The Wonderful 101.

This certainly sounds like a tempting offer from Nintendo but many a savvy shopper got their abacus out to see whether or not this deal would be cheaper than picking up a couple of physical copies instead.

It's tempting...

For example, if both sell for £49.99 - in the UK, obviously - the total spend would be £85, which would be more expensive than picking up a couple of retail versions for £35-£40 each. However, Nintendo has listed Pikmin 3 on the eShop for £39.99 as you can see in the photo to the right, which may make the deal a bit more appealing.

In this instance, should The Wonderful 101 be £49.99, the total spend will be £75 and if it's the same price as Pikmin 3 then it would be £68. Both options will certainly rival physical copies, especially the latter.

The offer will run from the release of Pikmin 3 up to 21st September and is exclusive to Europeans. Will this listing influence your purchasing decision for Pikmin 3 or The Wonderful 101? Let us know in the comment section below.
