The holidays are officially upon us, so the folks over at Nintendo have decided to stuff your stockings with discounts on lots and lots of games for the Wii U and 3DS. If you’re looking to find something new, or maybe pick up something you’ve had your eye on over the past 12 months, now might be the time to do exactly that.
Holidays are great, but sometimes you feel like curling up with a game and ignoring the family for an hour or so. Thankfully, Nintendo is making it possible to do exactly that on the cheap, kicking off its holiday sales beginning today at noon. Because it’s Nintendo, nothing about this sale is super standard, so the end date for each game or publisher’s discounts varies and is included in the list below. They also don’t announce all of the prices or what games, exactly, are included in a publisher sale, so you’ll have to boot up your 3DS or Wii U sometime in the next few days in order to get all of the details.
Along with standouts like Shovel Knight, you’ll find discounts on games like Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains, which is a much more appealing buy at just 20 bucks. Here’s the full rundown:

-Activision sale- (until 1/4)

If you were hoping for a big weekly update on the eShop, you’ll likely be disappointed in the slim pickings outside of this holiday sale. Super Mario Galaxy launches today for $19.99 on the Wii U but, other than that, you’re out of luck. Then again, there’s always the possibility that Nintendo has a treat or two to spring on gamers when the eShop update goes live, but we’ll just have to wait and see if anything else gets added to the pile.
