Donkey Kong Country Returns Stories March 8, 2016

A few weeks ago listings for a new batch of Nintendo Select titles were leaked by a Canadian retailer, followed by the official announcement and pricing details. Set for release on March 11th (this Friday), the new Select titles are now up for pre-order on Amazon and Best Buy. Better yet, the games are eligible for Amazon’s 20% off pre-orders and new releases promo. It’s not often we see first party Nintendo games go on sale this low, so it is nice to see some of the company’s solid library titles come available at the discounted rate.

Nintendo Select best sellers on the way w/ new low prices: Donkey Kong, Mario 3D World, Zelda OoT 3D, many more

Update (2/29 10:53am): Nintendo has now officially confirmed the new Select titles. Here in the US they will go for $19.99 each at various retailers come March 11th.

As you likely already know, Nintendo’s first party titles tend to hold their value and rarely go on sale (sometimes they end up above the original price tag!). This is where Nintendo Selects comes in. It is essentially a program that reprints older Nintendo titles and makes them available at a usually much lower price point. For example, Super Mario 3D World for Wii U still goes for between $48 and $60 (or more!), but will be about half that when it re-releases.

Today, Nintendo announced some price drops coming to some its most popular 3DS titles. Its top three best-selling 3DS games of all time in the US: Mario Kart 7, Super Mario 3D Land and New Super Mario Bros. 2, along with Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D will be getting an official price drop starting April 22 to $29.99 each. Nintendo says customers should see the price drop reflected in both the eShop via 3DS and various retailers.

The 25% price drop sounds enticing, especially for those looking to catch up on some solid 3DS titles, but we have seen most of these titles drop below $30 already from retailers like Amazon, Best Buy and others. First party Nintendo titles don’t see discounts nearly as often as other games and platforms, so there is a good chance we could see listings for these particular titles dip even lower following the scheduled price.

While $30 for anyone of these games is a good price considering the value of Nintendo’s well crafted first party games, and is even lower than some current listings, it might be smart to watch out for some even deeper discounts in the weeks after the official sale begins.
