Nintendo's Black Friday sale on the Wii U and 3DS eShop has begun

The sale lasts until December 5.


Nintendo is discounting 3DS and Wii U consoles and software during its Black Friday sale on the eShop for both devices.

The sale last until December 5 at 9:00am Pacific / 12:00pm Eastern.

Discounts on 3DS and Wii U games go up to 50 percent off the normal price. Highlights include savings on the cream of the crop for each platform. On the Wii U side, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and Star Fox Zero dropped to $35; Super Mario Galaxy 2 for Wii (available on the eShop) only costs $10; and Kirby Mass Attack can be yours for $5.

3DS owners have a bevy of selections as well. Hyrule Warriors Legends costs $28, while Monster Hunter Generations is only $24. The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes dropped to $24, but make sure you have at least one friend to play with: the game only supports one player or three.

Head to Nintendo's website, and you can find the NES Classic Edition for... ha! Almost got through it with a straight face. C'mon, man. Nobody can find an NES Classic Edition for less than the price of an arm and a leg.

Check Nintendo's website to see all deals. If you plan to do your Black Friday shopping outside of Nintendo's online storefront, Shacknews' own Cassidee Moser compiled some of the best deals in a shopping guide for Wii U, 3DS, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
