While Nintendo didn’t show very many games during its E3 Direct, it’s probably safe to say that it still managed to get Switch owner very excited with the reveal of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. This latest entry in the series includes a couple of new fighters like the Inklings and Ridley, and it places them alongside just about every character that’s ever made an appearance on the Smash Bros roster. As a sort of celebration for this, the Big N is holding a massive sale through its eShop right now, and some of the offers are pretty sweet.
Nintendo‘s eShop sale spans both the Switch and the 3DS and focuses primarily on games featuring Smash Bros. characters, though there are several other games on sale that have nothing whatsoever to do with Nintendo’s landmark fighting series. The featured Switch games include:
As for the 3DS, it’s not just 3DS games on sale, but virtual console classics too.
The list goes on for both the Switch and the 3DS, but these are the titles that Nintendo has put emphasis on. It’s quite a large selection of games to put on sale all at once, but it’s not too considering that Nintendo is doing this at least partially as a Smash Bros. promotion. Since Super Smash Bros. Ultimate features literally every character past and present, it only makes sense that they’d have to put a lot of games on offer.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate wasn’t the only Nintendo game to get attention at this year’s E3, but with it’s massive roster and the long-awaited arrival of Ridley as a character, it’s probably the one fans are most excited about. The game isn’t out until December, so perhaps it’s a good thing that some of Nintendo‘s best games are on sale right now.
