I feel like NSMBU and 3DW should be cheaper than that.

Wasn't NSMBU already down to $40 for regular price?

That 3D World price though...

How long would it take to 100% that game? I know you have to finish every level with all 5 characters for 5 stamps (though there is that multiplayer trick).

We had a similar Smash Bros Character sale last month. The only Mario games in it were NSMB2 and NSMBU. The discounts were like 20% off too.

And to think the Americans were crying about that...I guess Punch-Out was 50% off though...yeah that totally makes up for it.

Edit: Europe didn't get any Metroid, Pikmin, Star Fox or F-Zero discounts

Discounts on recently released games too? 3D World at 39.99? Yoshi at 29.99? 3D Land at 19.99? Good! Always glad to see better discounting initiatives from Nintendo themselves for theif retail titles. Hoping they continue to improve on this front in the future!

I feel like calling some of these games for their character is a MAJOR stretch, but I guess limited options.

You don't have to finish every level with all five characters for stamps, unless there's stamps I don't know about.

That's a decent number of games, but not sure the prices are all that great... Sony's flash sales tend to be a bit more Steam-like and drive almost automatic impulse buys.

still, at least they're doing sales. This is Nintendo we're talking about.

Awesome. I was hoping this sale would happen here.

Still though, I would easily pay for almost all of these if they were cross-buy. Nintendo has lost out on so much money from me without cross buy support.

I'm literally stuck deciding on which version to buy which leads me to not want to buy either of them.

SM3DW for $40 is a great deal. GameStop charges $55 for used.

Digital is slowly becoming cheaper than retail...

Super Mario 3D World is also $39.99 this week at Fred Meyers if you have one nearby. Amazon doesn't seem to have changed prices, so it doesn't appear to be an all retailer sale unfortunately.
