In today’s best game/app deals, Amazon is offering Splatoon on Wii U for $44.99 shipped (matched at Best Buy). That’s $45 under our previous mention and the lowest we have seen the game go for from a trusted retailer. Along receiving its very own set of Inkling amiibo, Splatoon released to solid reviews for its fun and interesting take on the typical arena shooter.
Splatter enemies and claim your turf as ink-spraying, squid-like Inklings in Nintendo’s ultimate mess-fest!
Other notable game deals on Amazon today include Borderlands: The Handsome Collection for $34.99 with free shipping for Prime members (or add at least $0.01 to your order), The Order: 1886 is back down to $19.99 with free Prime shipping and Gears of War Ultimate Edition is available for $36.44 shipped. All of which are either matching or slightly under our previous lows.
We also have a few notable Wii U console bundle deals starting with Target’s $269.99 offer on the Wii U Deluxe Mario Kart 8 bundle. That’s $30 under the going rate, $5 under Best Buy’s sale price that kicked off today and the best we can find. If you would rather the Splatoon Wii U bundle, Best Buy has that on sale $274.99 shipped today, which is the best price we can find.
