Update 2: The huge sale is now live. Head on over to start making some amazing savings!

Update 1: Well, that didn't take long! Nintendo of Europe has now shared the tweet once again, keeping it live this time. As we mentioned previously (original story below), we'll make sure to provide more info on the sale this Thursday when it goes live.

Original Article (Mon 16th Dec, 2019 11:15 GMT): We've been treated to some pretty wonderful sales over the past few months - sometimes as part of Nintendo's weekly download updates and sometimes thanks to very generous offers from individual publishers - but it looks like we might be about to receive a mighty, bumper edition of a sale.

Today at 10:19am GMT, Nintendo of Europe tweeted the following message. It reads, "Our Festive Offers 2019 #eShop sale begins 19/12 at 15:00 CET!", with an image which suggests that more than 700 games will be reduced by as much as 80%.

Strangely enough, the tweet was deleted within seconds of it going up. You can view the original link here, but it's gone for good. We're guessing that the tweet was accidentally scheduled ahead of time, and that a proper announcement for the sale will come nearer the time. Nintendo's sales do usually go live on Thursdays, so that 19th December start date definitely sounds about right.

Assuming the sale does indeed go live later this week, we'll make sure to update you with a list of games available.

Make sure to keep checking back for some huge savings!
