Super Smashing Sale Sees Savings On Wii U, 3DS Titles


Holy title alliteration, Batman! Nintendo seems to be pulling off all the eShop stops ahead of the release of Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, as the Japanese games company has announced a 4-week savings spree called the “Super Smashing Sale.” The theme of the sale is to focus on reducing the price of games involving the characters involved with the Super Smash Bros roster, with this week’s sales focusing on Mario, Bowser, Luigi, Peach, Yoshi, Little Mac and Rosalina-involved games.

Week 1 of the Super Smashing Sale runs from today until September 11th at 8:59 AM PDT, and sees the following games go on sale:

  • Super Mario Bros 3 (3DS/Wii U) – $3.49 (was $4.99)
  • Super Mario Bros 2 (3DS/Wii U) – $3.49 (was $4.99)
  • New Super Mario Bros U (Wii U) – $39.99 (was $59.99)
  • Super Mario 3D Land (3DS) – $19.99 (was $29.99)
  • Super Mario 3D World (Wii U) $39.99 (was $59.99)
  • Yoshi’s New Island (3DS) – $29.99 (was $39.99)
  • Punch Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream (3DS/Wii U) – $3.49 (was $4.99)

Each consecutive week will see more titles go on sale involving the theme, similar to what Nintendo of Europe currently has going surrounding Hyrule Warriors. While it’s not clear what exactly future weeks hold in terms of savings, but a Nintendo of Canada release previews at least four games that will go on sale for the eShop.

Week 2 (September 11 – 18) will see, at the very least, Fire Emblem: Awakening (Nintendo 3DS), The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap (Wii U), Sonic the Hedgehog (Nintendo 3DS) and Mega Man X (Wii U) go on sale. Week 3 (September 18 – 25) will see the following titles and more go on sale: Pokémon Battle Trozei (Nintendo 3DS), Pokémon Rumble U (Wii U), Metroid (Wii U/3DS) and Wii Fit U. Finally, Week 4 (September 25 – October 2) will see sales on at least the following titles: Animal Crossing: New Leaf (Nintendo 3DS), Pikmin 3 (Wii U), Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze (Wii U) and Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures (Wii U/3DS).

While it’s unfortunate for those who appreciate physical products, getting any deal on Nintendo games as deep as 33%, especially for a title like Super Mario 3D World that is less than a year old for the Wii U, is worth taking advantage of. Plus, with an expected bump of 3DS and Wii U sales with the Super Smash Bros releases, it’s a great time for new console and handheld owners to buy up some of the quality titles they might have missed already.
