It’s the season of deals at many games stores, with both the PlayStation and Microsoft stores wrapping up huge sales on critically acclaimed games recently. GameStop’s massive spring sale is still ongoing, and in the midst of all these deals, Nintendo has been gearing up for a sale of its own. The Nintendo Eshop Blockbuster Sale launches this Thursday, April 11 at 1 PM GMT / 3 PM CEST and will be available for two weeks, ending Thursday, April 25 at 10 PM GMT / 12 PM CEST. As of right now, the sale is only confirmed in Europe-it’s not clear if these deals will be available in North America.
Some of the Switch’s biggest games will be discounted up to 60% off, including select first-party Nintendo games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey, which are 30% and 33% off, respectively. The sale also includes popular Switch ports, like The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (50% off), Doom (50% off), Dark Souls Remastered (30% off), and Diablo III: Eternal Collection (30% off).
A selection of Nintendo 3DS games will also be marked down, including Super Smash Bros. (33% off), The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D (33% off), and New Super Mario Bros. 2 (33% off).
