A host of new discounts for North American gamers this week, then. Which deals will you be picking up this time around?
I hope more people pick up Kid Icarus: Uprising
Anyone who hasn't picked up Oracle of Ages/Seasons really should do so now.
Not bad. Too bad I own most of these games. Oh well.
Im getting minish cap and ages. Maybe ill get x2 but the x collection is 12 bucks on amazon soo
Also the price reduction ends on the morning of 18 September, not 02 October.
Oh well ... i'll wait for Donkey kong i guess...
I went for minish cap in the sales, my usb stick is fast filling with all these discounts!!
Guess I'm not getting Mega Man 5&6 after all... At least, not yet.
These sales aren't too great
So still no GBA Fire Emblem. Gotta love NOA.
I went and got x2 tho I have x5 physical copy but I hope x2 can compete with x5 but I really did expect more megaman games to be on sale or atleast all the kid Icarus games oh well atleast I convinced a friend to get kid Icarus uprising.
Already bought X2 and F-Zero.
Here are the mexican prices for the sales on Wii U
Minish Cap MXN$69.99
Megaman X/X2 MXN$69.99
Kid Icarus MXN$39.99
@Jahir how in the world are they that much or isd every1 a millionair there?
Have all the Zeldas and Uprising and Sonic already. Guess I'll get Mega Man 2.
UnEpic on sale...zoink
Maybe grab discounted Kid Icarus even though I have the enhanced version for 3DS...It's one of my all time favorite games.
Nice! I have something new to play this weekend...my backlog was really starting to shrink over the summer.
Wow, the Zelda Oracle games are lower than their initial discount. I own the carts but I think I may pick those up. Can anyone comment on if those games link through a 'virtual link cable' to each other? Seems like I had read something about that a while back. Otherwise you have to do the password system...
Yeay! Been meaning to pick up Minish Cap, I'll definitely grab that!
WHY IS OCARINA OF TIME 3D NOT ON HERE!?!?!
No Ocarina, no purchase. I already have all the others. But I will get X2 because I love that game.
OoT already got its rare sale moment this year.
@edgedino We use the mexican peso, wich is worth much less than a dollar. The conversion is usually like 1 dollar = 13 pesos. I fixed it already to avoid more misunderstandings
@Whopper744 They probably want the most profit out of it and seel it at full GBA price of $7.99 :S
@Jahir Thanks! Its good to see someone who cares about the Mexican eShop!
Great list and prices.
Today is the last day to save an additional 25% by buying eShop cards at Target.
Wow, NoA. Way to offer games most 3DS owners already have. I feel especially bad for Sonic. Even if the deal only had other Game Gear games on offer, that would be more than one Sonic game. I'm mostly upset that I skipped out on Yoshi's New Island hoping to get Sonic Lost World.
Getting X2!! Oh yeah!
@justinluey it's 10%. 25% is for psn or Xbox live.
@Webby-sama Ah yes, I put the date when the last discount ends. Whoops!
Thanks for the heads up.
Mehhh might pick up Mega Man 2 but would rather have it on Wii U.
Seems like I'll finally grab Fire Emblem and Kid Icarus
@KingofSaiyans Yup, it's a fantastic game and has tons of replay value. The only downside is that it's not very comfortable to play for left-handed people.
This sale softens the blow of yet another weak week of NA eshop offerings.
Seriously wish we got that crazy mega man sale that NoE got. I was really hyed for this week out of all of them but kinda of disappointed. Im still gonna pick up the mega man 3ds games and maybe x2
@Hy8ogen The flyer was wrong. eShop cards are 25% off at all locations. I've bought several. http://forums.redflagdeals.com/target-psn-xbox-live-cards-25-also-10-off-currency-cards-1544931/
@XFsWorld I would get it, but I'm waiting for the New 3DS so I can use the second circle pad. I've played the game before, and it's not very left-handed friendly.
I've got a $20 card that I was planning on using on Unchained Blades. But do I go with the two Oracle games and The Keep instead?
@Nestalgic Denno about The Keep but the Oracle games are certainly a worthwhile pickup.
thoughts on fire emblem and kid icarus? Picked up my 3ds after these were released, worth it at these prices?
@blaze8937 Yeah I was hoping to get Mega Man 1-6 for 50% off like NoE but oh well. I'll be getting the same games you mentioned.
@Webby-sama thanks. I'll probably go for those two over UB and then just save my remaining $12 for another sale.
Gotta remember to switch my region to Montana to avoid sales tax.
Dang, I was hoping for Wind Waker HD sale.
Nice, will pick up X2, Minish Cap, and Kid Icarus
Time to start filling out my 32 gb card Oracle and seasons for me. Where is links awakening?
Would pick up Kid Icarus but only have enough cash left for Age/Seasons so I guess that will be my choice.
Crossing fingers for Tomodachi Life being on sale next week... but it has to, right? There's like no other 3DS game to really represent the Miis.
Nintendo really does not seem to understand what a sale means in the contemporary video game scene
I'll get Kid Icarus Uprising for only $5 thanks to Digital Deluxe Promotion
might have to get some eshop cards this week
Man, there sure is a lot of complaining on here about games that are on sale? Not to mention that most of these are 1st party Nintendo games that are on sale!
Buying the Oracle game I'm missing. Also, is X2 worth it if I haven't played X and still have a huge backlog or is it basically more of the same?
@KingofSaiyans If I recall the circle pad pro attachment works on kid Icarus uprising to add a left handed person control scheme so left handed people can actually play it but all it does is make the controls switch sides.
Minish Cap could be amazing on 3ds
Gah! My wallet cringes.
Complain complain complain... Some good prices IMO
Minish Cap, the Oracle games, Mega Man 1 & 2, and F-ZERO. Nice haul, and it corresponded well with the eShop card sale Target has going on now.
Was expecting Link's Awakening instead of the Oracle games...too bad.
@eze84 : That's a GREAT price for Fire Emblem. Kid Icarus: Uprising is all right, and one of the only fast-paced action games on the 3DS. The online multiplayer is strong, but I found the campaign to be a bit short and underwhelming.
@eze84 fire emblem the best 3DS game imo. Too bad america didint get the GBA vc.
I just picked up KI: Uprising like, two weeks ago. Could have saved 10 beans on this deal. Totally worth full price, so I'm not really complaining.
NOOOOO, just when I finally got out of the negative with my allowance! I guess I'll wind up back in the red all over again!
hmmmm...... K.I. Uprising ...... THAT looks interesting as hell
Ooh, if that is the 3D Classic Sonic, then I'm definitely buying that! Also, aren't tbat Oracles of Ages / Seasons games less than the first sale? There goes anothee two sales!
I'm glad I waited to play Kid Icarus Uprising. Amazing deal.
@justinluey Oh WOW! Thanks for the heads up. I'll make a trip down to Target this evening. I hope this deal is live in Vancouver.
I'll be taking the sound advice of @Webby-sama as well as snagging Mega Man X2.
Kid Icarus Uprising aside, this is probably the worst of the deals.
I have all of these games except X2 >...>
@danjohnson141 How is your USB stick performing as an external expansion? How much does it hold? I wonder how it would perform with large installs...
This is awesome. They should totally do this stuff more often.
I'm for sure getting Minish Cap, Mega Man X and Mega Man X2.
I'm slightly disappointed by these discounts. Was expecting more, it's okay tho.
MAYBE F-Zero and Mega Man X2. I can't do Minish Cap on Wii U VC.
I already own it on my 3DS as part of the Ambassador Program and I don't think it's fair that you would need to buy it again, just to get it on the Wii U.
It's 2014, almost 2015.. They really need to start offering cross-buy. Both the 3DS and Wii U share the same NNID, so there's really no excuse for this.
I might get Mega Man X, done have X2. I might also get the legend of zelda Minish cap. But Nintendo should have at lease had Zelda Windwaker HD in this sell and I would have purchased it right off. If they can have the Mario Bros U game in the sell why not Windwaker HD?
gator I have a 32gb sandisk stick and it works fine for me, however I only really keep virtual console games on it.
Nintendo can't help it if you already own these games. Stop whining about the list just because you bought the games at full price.
Pleasantly surprised they put the Mega Man X titles on sale for Wii U over the Classic series titles.
@edgedino X2 is vastly better than X5. X5 is only good for story. The game play is among the worst in the series.
Here in Mexico the retail digital games are very expensive with the promotion.
Hope somebody help me, I can't decide between Fire Emblem: Awakening and Kid Icarus: Uprising, I wish I could buy both, but if you have to get just one (for now) which would it be?
My 3DS is getting Repaired right now. Otherwise I would get Uprising.
Pretty lame selection. I'll pick up Sonic, but that's peobably it. Would have considered getting Battle Network if it was part of this. : /
REALLY?! Only up to Mega man 2 gets the discount? I was looking forward to this to get 5 and 6. Damn Nintendo of America knows how to ruin a good thing. :/
@iamblinker I really liked Fire Emblem Awakening but I haven't played Kid Icarus Uprising yet. If you're hyped for Smash Bros. go for the latter (it's another Sakurai game).
@ThomasBW84 - These are the same prices in Canada
I'm regretting my advanced purchased of Mario Kart 8's DLC cause now I'm forced to choose either Mega Man X and Mega Man X2 or Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons. :/
@Rhansley64 That's Why I never preorder any games or DLC for any console.
@XFsWorld Uprising: That's my plan. Been waiting for a long time
@LucinaSmash Thanks for reminding me about Digital Deluxe! I had two $5 credits waiting! That and I bought eShop cards at Target which saved me more than $5. (It's buy one get one 25% off right now in the US.)
I'm also getting Minish Cap and strongly thinking about Fire Emblem. (oh and Mega Man 2. Haven't picked that up yet — erg and the Oracle games!) To those complaining, I have never seen sales like this from Nintendo... ever.
How is the content in Fire Emblem? I know it's rated Teen but how "Teen" is it? Anyone care to comment? My problem is that my 5-year-old son loves the demo. :/
I've been waiting for the Oracle games to go on sale again- gonna pick up both of those plus Minish Cap. Even though it has been stated in a few comments, if you haven't picked up Kid Icarus: Uprising than do it!!! High replay value and the online battle modes are really fun.
I like how many of the titles are secret until the sale week. So any bets on what Metroid stuff will go on sale next week? I think I own it all. A surprise Zero Mission release would be welcome, though.
If it goes low enough I might do Pokemon Rumble U even though I've heard it's not as fun as the Wii version. Not much else there to get me excited.
However, I'm also targeting DKC Tropical Freeze in Week 4 as there were just too many new platformers at the time that released for me to get it. I feel like I skipped all the right titles for these sales.
@aaronsullivan This is from esrb.org:
Rating Summary: This is a role-playing game in which players assume the role of a young adventurer who journeys through a fantasy world. Players engage in tactical battles by moving characters around grids and taking turns attacking enemies. Gameplay attacks consist of brief animations in which characters slash each other with swords, or attack with magic spells; light effects and cries of pain denote damage. Cutscenes also contain instances of violence: characters getting impaled with swords, lightning bolts; enemy soldiers attacking a village; a character jumping off a cliff to her death. During the course of the game, there is occasional suggestive dialogue/text (e.g., “Your philandering is quite deplorable, but high marks on your attitude,” “Noble or not, you should be wearing at least a towel when you address a lady!” and “loins afire” when a character is in love.); a few characters also wear low-cut tops that reveal deep cleavage. A handful of scenes feature characters discussing mead, wine, and being drunk. The words “ar*e” and “p*ss off” appear in dialogue.
@Webby-sama Oh cool, thanks. Didn't know esrb had all that available. Seems a bit much for my 5-year-old. This is the problem with 3DS though for me as a parent. I can guide my kids through stuff when we play together, but with the 3DS there's no way to share the experience.
As for buying it for just myself, I would if I had more time to play games. I have too many right now and I'm only buying because of the sales. When I do play I like to play with the kids.
@mowerdude Yeah, but at least I get to play with alternative Yoshi and Shy Guy skins.
I'm disappointed that only one Sonic game went on sale. I would've liked to get Game Gear Sonic 2, even though $3.50 would still be a high price for it.
@Rhansley64 Why are you complaining then?
@mowerdude I won't be able to cash up my account till October and I pretty much spend my reserves on the DLC wasn't sure if the deal was for a limited time.
I wish OoT 3D went on sale
Been looking for an excuse to play that game again
For some reason, I see the "Tap Here To Purchase" button on everything except the Zelda OoA and Zelda OoS games. Those are the 2 games I want, yet it won't let me purchase them, my eShop account is maxed out so not a money issue, and I see the options for other, more expensive games
All the games I want are for a system I don't have (nor care to). Yay...
It's called currency exchange rates. 1 dollar US money equals 62 cents in British Pounds, 77 cents in euros, $13.23 in Mexican pesos, or even $107.05 in Japanese Yen.
Prices vary by county, but you'll still pay roughly the same amount for the same item anywhere in the civilized world. You could take your money to a currency exchange right now and they will happily give you $13 in pesos for every American dollar.
@sinalefa X2 kicks butt! I bought the minish cap download since my ds screen is tiny.
Really wish they'd bring the oracle games over to Wii U, or we'd get definitive word that GBC games are just never ever coming to Wii U, so we know. I actually have them as cartridges, but would love a more "permanent" copy (which is generously assuming Ninentdo goes modern with digital games in the near future, and we all know what assuming does...)
Kid Icarus: Uprising is one of my all-time favs, so I couldn't resist snagging a digital version to have on the go at all times. Same for Fire Emblem: Awakening, great game to have on the system for whenever. ...theeeeen I figured why not Mega Man X/X2 and Minish Cap too. $70 well spent.
I'm not too keen on the Game Gear release of Sonic. Kinda hoped for a discount on the 3D Remaster. As it stands, nothing for me this week.
Is Jim Bowen working for Nintendo of America?
Only have $8 left. Should I get Minish Cap or Mega Man X?
Just bought Mega Man 2 ..... going to start this one tonight I think.
Sonic the Hedgehog (Gamegear version) was surprisingly a good game. I still remember the fun boss at the third stage. The games in the Genesis version and the Gamegear version are quite different.
@BearHunger I actually thought Sonic 1 on gamegear was a bit better than Sonic 2 on gamegear.
@GreatPlayer Oh yeah, I agree. But I've played it a lot on Sonic Adventure DX, whereas I never got very far into Sonic 2 because I could almost never beat the first boss.
Not quite in a position to go for $30, but still mulling about if I shoulda skimped on 3D Land for $20. But, there's always holiday sales to anticipate.
