Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze 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.
