It’s rare that first-party Nintendo games ever go on sale-after all, the demand is always high, and the company prides itself on producing higher quality games. Because of that, it’s sort of a big deal when Nintendo games do get discounted, and right now, Walmart is answering all of our prayers by dropping the price on select first-party Nintendo games.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, and Splatoon 2 have had their price slashed by $15, so you can now pick them up for $45 rather than $60. For the same price, Walmart is also offering starter packs for Breath of the Wild and Splatoon 2, which include both the game and a guide. This is a pretty significant price drop, so act fast if you want to take advantage of this deal. Another perk: Walmart offers free two-day shipping, so you won’t be waiting long before they arrive.
In case you’ve forgotten, Breath of the Wild was our Game of the Year in 2017 and completely reimagined the Zelda formula in a gorgeous, open-world setting. Super Mario Odyssey offers over a dozen colorful worlds to explore, and surprisingly, it’s a fun couch co-op game when one player controls Mario and the other is spinning around as Cappy. Splatoon 2 landed on the Switch in mid-2017 and offers ink-slinging fun in both a single-player campaign and online multiplayer.
While not a first-party Nintendo game, Civilization VI is also selling for $45 right now. Civilization VI brought the classic turn-based strategy series to Switch for the first time, where players can build up their own empire by gathering resources and conquering other societies.
All four of these games are worth owning and it’s unclear how long they’ll be on sale, so if you’ve been on the fence about buying them, now’s likely your best chance to snatch them up at a discount.
