Wii U Games

Nintendo of America has revealed a small stack of last minute deals in order to, as the company would hope, push shoppers towards picking up a Nintendo console or some of their fine software.

They shared those deals with us by way of a brief press release, and now we’re sharing them with you.

Best Buy

Dec. 13-19

  • Buy one get the second 40% off on all Nintendo 3DS and Wii U software
    • Limited time only. While supplies last. Discounted item must be of equal or lesser value to the lowest priced item purchased. Cannot be combined with other offers.
  • Save $25 on the New Nintendo 3DS XL system
    • While supplies last. No rain checks.


Dec. 13-19

  • Save $50 on Wii U hardware
  • Save $10 on character Wii U remote controllers
    • While supplies last. No rain checks.


  • Save $50 on Wii U hardware
  • Save $15 on various Wii U and Nintendo 3DS software
    • While supplies last. No rain checks.

Toys R Us

Dec. 13-19

  • Get two amiibo for $22
    • All amiibo single figures. Reg. $10.99-$13.99 ea. Must buy two for offer.


Dec. 7-24

  • Save $20 on the Nintendo 2DS system
    • Online only. While supplies last. No rain checks.

Right, so that’s a cheaper Wii U, cheaper Nintendo 3DS and discounts on software and amiibo. These aren’t the best deals we’ve seen, though they’re solid enough. If it were me, I’d be eyeing up the buy one, get another 40% deal for software at Best Buy.

Otherwise? The deals are just alright.
