Nintendo offers rare discounts on 3DS and Wii U games

'The Legend of Zelda,' Lego and other hits are well-represented in the sale.

Nintendo isn't known for running many sales on its games (you're more likely to see sales on devices), but it's making a big exception this year. It just kicked off a Cyber Deals eShop sale that offers large discounts on 3DS and Wii U titles -- and these are frequently titles you'd want to play. On the 3DS, you'll see price cuts on big titles like Hyrule Warriors Legends (down to $28), Fire Emblem Awakening ($20) and Monster Hunter Generations ($23). Head over to the Wii U side and you can pick up Twilight Princess HD ($35), Super Mario Galaxy 2 ($10) and Darksiders II ($10). Indie games like Super Meat Boy and Terraria are also on sale, and numerous Lego games (including Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens) are discounted across platforms.

The sale lasts through December 5th, and you'll still get Gold Points if you're a My Nintendo member. These aren't necessarily the sales you'd hope for (Splatoon, anyone?). Look at it this way, though: it's a good chance to scoop up a few of the titles you missed from the current generation before the Switch arrives.
