Nintendo Wii System (Refurb) only $49.99 & Free Shipping @ EB Games Canada! (EXPIRED)

Nintendo Wii System (Refurb) only $49.99 & Free Shipping @ EB Games Canada! (EXPIRED)

If anyone out there doesn’t yet have a Nintendo Wii and you’re looking for something to entertain the kids, then consider buying this refurbished model from EB Games Canada. Coming in at only $49.99, the refurbished Nintendo Wii can be yours, with free shipping to your home!

Included in this bundle:

Refurbished Wii System, 1 Wii Remote Controller, 1 Wii Nunchuk Controller

It sounds like you don’t get any games with the initial package, so keep that in mind when you place your order. You might want to throw something like Mario Kart or Shaun White Skateboarding in your cart too.

The Nintendo Wii page above doesn’t state how long the warranty is on this refurbished item, but on this page, EB Games state that there is a 30 day limited warranty on refurbished hardware. Obviously that’s not a very long time period, but it should be more than enough to get your console set up and make sure it’s in working order.

Price Comparison?

I tried to check the price for other Nintendo Wiis online, but there are not many places selling refurbished models to accurately compare the pricing. If you were to buy a Wii, you’d be looking at around $100+ even for just a used model on Amazon.ca or eBay. At least if you buy from EB Games, you’ve got that 30 day warranty in case anything happens.

Wii Modding?

This is something I’ve heard of but never tried to do myself. You can mod your Wii to play backup games, stored on an external device. This probably negates any kind of warranty you’d get with a Wii… but if you’re only spending $50 on one, then it won’t break the bank.

Wii Memories!

Can you believe that the Nintendo Wii was first released in 2006 – that’s nine years ago! Until I started writing this article, I didn’t realise that it had been around for quite as long as that. I think I got a Nintendo Wii back in or around 2008, after the initial hype had died down a bit. That very same device is now sitting in a box in my attic… loved no more! However, back in the day, I used it a lot. When friends came round for parties (before we had kids!), we’d crack out the Wii and have some Mario Kart fun, along with a few other party games. I also used the Wii to get fitter – using the balance board and some fitness games. It worked for a while… although in thinking about that right now, I should probably give it another try.

Just $225 – Wii U Deluxe Super Mario 3D World Bundle [Refurbished] @ Nintendo.com Now!

Posted by on March 7, 2015 at 8:31 AM

Just $225   Wii U Deluxe Super Mario 3D World Bundle [Refurbished] @ Nintendo.com Now!

Quick! The refurbished Wii U Super Mario 3D World bundle is down to just $225 at Nintendo.com right now.

Shipping is at a flat rate of $7 per order, but even with this fee, this is a far better deal than anywhere else. Both Walmart and Best Buy are selling non-refurbished Wii U consoles for $299, with these being nearly sold out at the former. Meanwhile, it was $229.99 at EB Games but is now currently out of stock.

I have this same bundle and let me tell you, I love it and I especially love the Super Mario 3D World game. My hubby and I are currently on the very last level and we have had loads of fun playing this game as a team for over a year now. You can of course beat it in less than a week if you’re very dedicated but we have been taking our time.

This bundle comes with:

  • 32GB black console
  • Wii U gamepad
  • Super Mario 3D World
  • Nintendo Land digital game
  • Sensor bar

Here’s what one reviewer of the console had to say about it at Best Buy:

Give it a chance, Nintendo has always been able to make quality games over the past years. Their newest console- the Wii U is no exception. This is a system which proves power isn’t everything. I use my Wii U all the time as its rather easy to get on the web to check something out, and has a wide variety of games to choose from (including backwards compatibility with wii games and virtual console).

The backwards compatibility is a huge advantage as if you have the initial Wii, then you will still be able to play your old games.

Refurbished electronics are an amazing way to save money without compromising on quality. If anything, you can rest assured that the electronic in question will actually last longer given that all the kinks and bugs have been fixed! Plus refurbished products sold directly from Nintendo are definitely nearly brand new, so even less worry there. All Nintendo refurbished systems also come with a standard 12-month warranty.

Toys R Us Canada: Take $10 Off When You Spend $40 Online & Free Shipping

Toys R Us Canada: Take $10 Off When You Spend $40 Online & Free Shipping

I am not sure how long this Toys R Us Canada offer will last, but it turns out the coupon code you could receive when purchasing a Cineplex Gift Bundle was generic. That means anyone can use this ToysRUs.ca coupon code to take $10 off their purchase of $40 or more. Since your order will exceed $25, you will even get free shipping. The expiry date is the 31st of March but once Toys R Us Canada catches on that everyone is using it, they may end it abruptly.

Click here to shop @ ToysRUs.ca now

  • Coupon Code: CINEPLEXHOLIDAY
  • Discount: $10 off $40
  • Expiry: 31st March 2015

Good news and bad news. The good news is that you can shop at ToysRUs.ca and take $10 off when you spend $40 or more with this coupon code. The bad news is that you can only apply this discount to regular priced toys and items.

The Nintendo Amiibo Character Figures seem to be popular right now. I also have yet to see a good sale on them. I like coupon codes like this to pickup items that rarely go on sale. The Nintendo Amiibo Character Figures are only $13.99. You can pickup characters like Donkey Kong, Kirby, Diddy Kong, Pikachu, Yoshi, Mario, Luigi, Zelda, Peach and more. Even the Lucario Nintendo Amiibo Character Figure is coming on the 6th of February. There are many more characters available, but these seem to be the only ones listed on ToysRUs.ca.

These Nintendo Amiibo figures can be used for the Nintendo Wii U as well as the new Nintendo 3DS XL. I am sure some of you (or  your kids) had these devices under the Christmas tree, and why not add some more Amiibo figures to your collection? Different characters can be used for different games so you may want to take a glance at this compatibility chart I found on the Nintendo website. There are a number of games that are compatible with the Nintendo Amiigos characters including:

  • Super Smash Bros. for Wii U
  • Mario Kart 8
  • Hyrule Warriors
  • Mario Party 10
  • Code Name: S.T.E.A.M.
  • Kirby and the Rainbow Curse

Every character can be used for Super Smash Bros for Wii U, which is probably the most popular of these games. Unfortunately my favourite character, Pikachu, cannot be used for Mario Kart 8. Since Target is leaving, it may also be hard to get your hands on the exclusive Target’s Rosaline Amiibo figure. What game are you excited to play with your new Nintendo Amiibo Characters?

Personally I always wonder why they don’t offer these discounts in stores as well. I guess you could opt for in store pickup, but you’ll get free shipping anyway so no point really. Toys R Us Canada offers free standard shipping on orders that exceed $25 after discounts.

You can even find more Toys R Us Canada coupon codes in our Bargainmoose forum.

Nintendo Throwback Sale: Up To 50% Off Pushmo World, Yoshi’s Island, Super Mario 3D World & Others

Posted by on January 15, 2015 at 7:00 PM

Nintendo Throwback Sale: Up To 50% Off Pushmo World, Yoshis Island, Super Mario 3D World & Others

In honour of Throwback Thursday, Nintendo has discounted a couple of Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo Wii U games and during the next couple of days, you can save up to 50% on a select number of these!

Below, you will find a list of the games that you can get on sale.

Nintendo 3DS:

  • Pushmo: reg. $7.49/ now $3.49
  • Yoshis New Island: reg. $44.99/ now $33.49

WII U:

  • Yoshis Island Super Mario Advance 3: reg. $7.99/ now $5.99
  • Pushmo World: reg. $10.99/ now $7.99
  • Super Mario Galaxy 2: reg. $21.99/ now $10.99
  • Super Mario 3D World: reg. $59.99/ now $44.99

I can never praise Super Mario 3D World enough. Featured in the image above, it’s a game that I played on countless wine-filled evenings with my hubby and we’ve had a blast. You can play by yourself but it’s much funner to play together with someone else as you can work together to figure out how to beat the levels and find the hidden items. Even better is that once you beat the game, it still won’t be over… play to find out what I mean! Nintendo Throwback Sale: Up To 50% Off Pushmo World, Yoshis Island, Super Mario 3D World & Others

Since I have a Wii U, I’ll most definitely be getting the other games as they’re so cheap. Well, anything under the usual full price of $59.99 is cheap to me, especially when the price hovers around $10.

If you scroll all the way down to the bottom section on Nintendo’s Throwback Sale page, then you will also see more price drops for the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U.

For the Nintendo 3DS, for instance, you could get Secret Mysteries in New York on sale for $3.48 (reg. $6.25) or for the Wii U, I found Color Zen Kids for $2.79 (reg. $3.99).

I was surprised that the cheapest game for the Nintendo 3DS is Darts Up 3D, which is on sale for just $0.99 (reg. $2.99) — less than $1 for a game is truly amazing!

Keep in mind that these are all available as digital downloads but that shouldn’t be too much of a problem since you will be saving money. CDs are becoming obsolete anyways, so it shouldn’t make too much of a difference. Nintendo Throwback Sale: Up To 50% Off Pushmo World, Yoshis Island, Super Mario 3D World & Others

Amazon: Nintendo 3DS XL $139 & FREE $50 Amazon GC *HOT* (EXPIRED)

Posted by on December 24, 2014 at 2:39 PM

Amazon: Nintendo 3DS XL $139 & FREE $50 Amazon GC *HOT* (EXPIRED)

Amazon Canada has a piping hot deal on the Black or Red Nintendo 3DS XL right now. Purchase the Nintendo 3DS XL for just $139 (save $61) and receive a FREE $50 Amazon gift card!

Now, the Nintendo 3DS Xl is going to be on sale a lot of places for Boxing Day but this is the best deal I have found and I think that you will find this year on this hand-held console. Here are some price comparisons for you:

  • $199.83 @ Walmart – OOS
  • $199.95 @ Chapters – OOS
  • $179.99 @ Staples Canada -blue
  • $199.99 @ The Source Canada

I also scoured the Best Buy flyer and found out that they will have the Nintendo 3DS XL on sale starting tonight for $139.99, which costs $1 more and does not include a free $50 gift card. Amazon just whips the competition!

You need to add both the Nintendo to your cart AND the $50 gift card. It is really simple to do that. Scroll down to special offers and product promotions section under the initial pictures. It will say:

Get a $50 Amazon.ca gift card with your purchase of Nintendo 3DS XL

Under that is a yellow button that says, “Add Both to Cart.” When you add both to your cart, the total will pop up as $189. However, upon the final stage of checkout the cost of the $50 gift card will be taken off your price. See the image below for some guidance:

 

Amazon: Nintendo 3DS XL $139 & FREE $50 Amazon GC *HOT* (EXPIRED)

Now, currently the black and the red are on sale for $139 each. They will not ship out for three to five weeks, but I am willing to wait that long on a good deal. In my cart, it showed that the Amazon Gift Card would ship several weeks before the actual Nintendo 3DS XL would.

The Nintendo 3DS must be purchased from Amazon, so be careful not to try to order from any secondary sellers. This promotion is on for TODAY only so be quick little bunnies before it ends or it sells out. You will receive free shipping, as your cart totals over $25.

Future Shop Canada: Captain Toad Treasure Tracker For The Nintendo Wii U (Pre Order) | Was $45 Now $35 (EXPIRED)

Good morning, my fellow gamers! Future Shop is having an awesome deal on their pre-orders for Captain Toad Treasure Tracker for the Nintendo Wii U system, and it won’t be around for very long! This Wii U game normally sells for $44.99, but with this Future Shop deal, you can purchase Captain Toad Treasure Tracker for $34.99! That’s $10 off – you can’t go wrong with that! You’ll also qualify for free shipping! This game is set to be released on December the 5th, so in a few weeks you’ll be able to enjoy playing this great fun-filled title! This deal will expire before midnight, so take advantage of this bargain while you can!

I have been waiting for the release of this Nintendo Wii U game since it was first announced early this year. My girlfriend and I were actually able to play a demo of this Captain Toad Treasure Tracker game at a Wii U kiosk that was located at a The Source location near our home, and it’s a lot of fun! It’s bound to be a game full of fun puzzles, cute graphics, and best of all, plenty of Toad, the pint-sized character that’s been seen in Mario games since Super Mario Bros. for the original Nintendo video game system, the NES.

These Captain Toad puzzles first made their appearance on the fantastic Wii U release, Super Mario 3D World. They were little mini games that you could play, and my main squeeze and I just loved them! In Captain Toad Treasure Tracker for the Nintendo Wii U, you’ll be able to enjoy so many more puzzles that are more complex than the ones that were in Super Mario 3D World, and you’ll get some added abilities, as well! If you’re looking for a cute game that both kids and adults could enjoy for your Wii U, then I highly recommend that you pick up this title.

If you pre-order Captain Toad Treasure Tracker for the Nintendo Wii U from Best Buy, it would cost $44.99. This deal expires before midnight, so get this while you still can! Happy gaming, my fellow deal hunters!

Best Buy Canada: Mario & Sonic At The Olympic Winter Games Sochi 2014 For The Nintendo Wii U | Was $50 Now $20

Good afternoon, my fellow gamers! Today’s deal at Best Buy is for Mario & Sonic At The Olympic Winter Games Sochi 2014 for the Nintendo Wii U, and it’s one that you should definitely check out! This game normally retails for $49.99, but you can now pick up this Wii U game for only $19.97 (plus $5 shipping)! This is a fantastic deal for a 1st-party Nintendo Wii U game! This item is on final clearance, so quantities are extremely limited. Once they’re gone, they’re gone!

Mario & Sonic At The Olympic Winter Games Sochi 2014 for the Nintendo Wii U is a fun game that’s fun for people of all ages! I own this game, and my girlfriend and I have a great time playing this Mario & Sonic game. It’s a great multiplayer game, too, so if you have 3 other friends that want to play with you, then you should totally pull out this game for the Wii U.

One particular mini game that’s included in Mario & Sonic At The Olympic Winter Games Sochi 2014 for the Nintendo Wii U that I had a lot of fun with was the figure skating activity. As my girlfriend and I held our Wii remote controllers, we had to act out a figure skating performance (that was played out on our TV screen by Bowser and Yoshi), and it was just too much fun. We couldn’t stop laughing as we had to spin around our living room, trying not to stumble during this hilarious process!

If you wanted to buy Mario & Sonic At The Olympic Winter Games Sochi 2014 for the Nintendo Wii U at WalMart in America, it would cost you $38.06 US. I’ve included a brief review of this game from a satisfied WalMart customer below:

This is a great game for four players. It’s a lot of fun and not too complicated for the people in the group that don’t play a lot.

Happy hunting, my fellow gamers!

Shoppers Drug Mart Canada: Game On Sale | Get 20X The Optimum Points On Video Games Today Only (EXPIRED)

Posted by on November 15, 2014 at 6:00 AM

Shoppers Drug Mart Canada: Game On Sale | Get 20X The Optimum Points On Video Games Today Only (EXPIRED)

Good morning, my fellow deal hunters! Shoppers Drug Mart is currently advertising a cool promotion on their website, and it just might pique your interest. If you pick up any video games tomorrow at a Shoppers Drug Mart location near you, you could get 20 times the Shoppers Optimum Points with your purchase (if you spend $50 or more)! If you don’t have a Shoppers Optimum Card, you could easily apply for one at a Shoppers Drug Mart location near you (and it’s free of charge). This can lead to some big savings, especially if you plan to purchase certain video games or consoles for Christmas, including the Microsoft Xbox One, Sony PS4, Nintendo Wii U, or Nintendo 3DS. You can find out just how much you can save by checking out the Shoppers Optimum Points calculator that’s on their website – click here to see how much you could save!

There are many great video games that you can save on during this one-day sale. It will only be valid today (Saturday November 15th), and it can help you get a huge amount of Shoppers Optimum Points that you could use for future purchases at Shoppers Drug Mart (yes, you could even use these optimum points to get more points once they show up in your account).

In fact, you could even spend $299.99 on a Wii U system today and get 20X the Shoppers Optimum Points for your purchase. This would translate to 60,000 Optimum Points, which equals to about $95 of credit that you could use (once it shows up in your account). So you could come back in a few weeks and use that credit on another video game that hasn’t been released yet, like the highly anticipated Super Smash Bros. U (which should retail for $64.99), which means that you’d still have about $30 in Shoppers Optimum Points to use! Now that’s a sweet deal.

This 20x Optimum Points promotion can also apply to other merchandise in the store (with select exclusions, which you could check out here.) Have fun today, Bargainmoosers – I hope you can all find some sweet video games and consoles at Shoppers Drug Mart today!

Good afternoon, my fellow gamers! Today’s deal at Toys R Us is a good one, so brace yourself for this one – if you buy 3 video games that are at least $29.99 for any system, you’ll be able to save 20% on all three of the games that you picked up! This applies to Sony PS4, PS3, Microsoft Xbox One, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii U, Wii, and 3DS games that are at least $29.99. You really can’t go wrong with this deal, especially since you’ll qualify for free shipping with your purchase! If you only find 2 games that interest you, then you’ll be able to save 15% on those titles!

There are plenty of great games that you can choose from during this sale! There’s NHL 15 ($69.99) for the PS4 and the Xbox One, Super Mario 3D World ($59.99) for the Wii U, Mario Kart 8 ($64.99) for the Wii U, LEGO: The Hobbit ($34.97) for the Xbox One, and even new releases like Sunset Overdrive ($64.99) for the Xbox One and Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare Day Zero Edition ($69.99) for the PS4.

Now that the holidays are fast approaching, this is a great deal to use to your advantage. After all, when those Christmas lists are filled with video game requests, this 20% off deal at Toys R Us can alleviate some of the stress on our wallets during the holiday season!

If you wanted to buy these games at another retail location this week, you wouldn’t be able to get a 15% or a 20% discount on your purchase, so Toys R Us is the place to be this week! Just be sure to get those games before they’re out of stock! I’ve included a brief review of Sunset Overdrive for the Xbox One from a satisfied Future Shop customer below:

Fantastic game!! This is so much fun so far… Very fun game. I recommend it to anyone who likes having a lot of fun blowing things up!!

Toys R Us Canada: Nintendo 3DS XL – Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Set | Was $200 Now $170

Toys R Us Canada: Nintendo 3DS XL   Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Set | Was $200 Now $170

If you’ve ever been intrigued to pick up a Nintendo 3DS XL system, this may be a great opportunity to do so while saving some of your hard-earned money! Today at Toys R Us, you can get the special Mario & Luigi: Dream Team version of the Nintendo 3DS XL for $169.97 – it typically costs $199.99. You’ll also qualify for free shipping!

This particular version of the Nintendo 3DS XL features some cute artwork on Mario and Luigi on it. Not only that, but it also has Mario & Luigi: Dream Team installed in it, so you’ll have a great game to play with your new 3DS!

I first had the regular version of the Nintendo 3DS. I eventually decided to sell it (don’t worry, I kept my games) so I can get this exact Mario & Luigi; Dream Team version of the 3DS XL. The bigger screens make a huge difference when you’re playing your games.

Though it may not be as portable as the original 3DS system, that didn’t really matter to me. All I know is that I can thoroughly enjoy great 3DS games like Zelda: The Ocarina Of Time 3D and Kid Icarus: Uprising much more on the significantly larger 3DS XL screens.

If you were to buy this special Mario & Luigi: Dream Team version of the Nintendo 3DS XL at Future Shop, it would cost you $199.95, and it’s $199.83 at WalMart. Listed below is a brief review of this system from a satisfied Future Shop customer:

I bought this 3DS because it had the game preloaded, it is a nice design and I like that it commemorates 30 years of Luigi. The game itself is nothing spectacular, but still entertaining.

I personally enjoy the Mario & Luigi: Dream Team game that comes with the system. It’s fun, and reminds me of Super Mario RPG for the Super Nintendo. Happy gaming, Bargainmoosers!

Nintendo eShop: Super Smashing Sale – More Titles On Sale Including Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze For $30

Posted by on September 27, 2014 at 9:00 AM

Nintendo eShop: Super Smashing Sale   More Titles On Sale Including Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze For $30

Now that the release of Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo 3DS is on the horizon, it’s the final week for Nintendo’s Super Smashing Sale. During these weekly sales, many old and new games that featured classic Nintendo characters that are in the new Super Smash Bros. title had their prices slashed, and this week is no exception. Until October the 2nd, you can save on a decent selection of titles on the Wii U and 3DS systems that feature Donkey Kong, Kirby, Pikmin, Pac-Man, and several others. In fact, you can get Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze for the Nintendo Wii U for $29.99 (regular price on the Nintendo eShop is $49.99). At Future Shop and Best Buy, that game sells for $54.99! Plus, since these games are all their downloadable versions, you can play the games that you want shortly after you purchase them!

There are some great games featured in this sale (including my favourite, Pikmin 3, which was $59.99 but is now $39.99). The other titles that you can save on during Nintendo’s Super Smashing Sale include Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D for the 3DS ($19.99, was $29.99), Kirby’s Dream Land 3 for the Wii U ($4.99, was $7.99), Animal Crossing New Leaf for the 3DS ($19.99, was $29.99), and even the original Donkey Kong for the Wii U ($3.49, was $4.99).

Between some of these all – time classics and Nintendo’s newer offerings, this is a decent sale for video game fans. I bought Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze at the beginning of this year, and it’s a lot of fun (after all, it plays like the Donkey Kong Country games for the Super Nintendo). You can even play with 2 players at the same time, which I found to be a fun experience. It has some stumping puzzles littered throughout the game as well, so it’s a fun, challenging game that will keep you intrigued.

I’ve included a review for Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze from a satisfied Best Buy customer below:

This game is literally flawless, from amazing gameplay, to wonderful music, to fantastic, striking visuals in HD on the Wii U. Literally can’t find a single thing wrong with this game. Every Wii U owner needs this. I am primarily an Xbox guy, but I picked up a Wii U last year and this game justified the purchase ALONE. 10/10 MUST BUY.

Check out this sale to see the full list of titles that you can save on for your Wii U and 3DS systems. Happy gaming, Bargainmoosers!

Best Buy Canada: $10 Off 2 Nintendo 3DS Games

Posted by on September 16, 2014 at 6:30 PM

Best Buy Canada: $10 Off 2 Nintendo 3DS Games

Shop now at Best Buy to save on Nintendo 3DS games. For a limited time, you get a $10 discount with purchase of two Nintendo 3DS games valued at $34.99 each or more.

Let’s face it, when you own any kind of video console of handheld device, you don’t just buy one game. Typically, one is bought either as soon as one is released or even as soon as one gets boring. So although you will be spending a little more in one shot by getting 2 or more games, this is an opportunity for saving in the long-term… or short term depending on how often you buy games! Another major plus is that you won’t have to check out numerous times if you want to take advantage of this discount on the purchase of games or more. I added Super Smash Bros four times to my shopping cart to see if the discount would work and a $20 price reduction was indeed awarded.

Speaking of which, Super Smash Bros is definitely a game that you should consider pre-ordering right now as you most likely won’t get it on sale anytime soon. It is set to be released in a little over two weeks on October 3rd 2014 and is the next instalment in a series of games by the same title that were originally released in 1999. Plus, by pre-ordering this game and getting another one, you will have time to finish the latter, to then move on to the former once it is delivered to your order in October!

A game I would recommend is definitely Super Mario Bros 2. It’ $34.99 and is in the same game style as the old Super Mario games that most of us have grown up with and have fond memories of! In fact, here’s what someone had to say about it on Amazon‘s site:

Compared to the first NSMB for both the Wii, and DS, I found this one just slightly more difficult in terms of gameplay, and finding all the secrets. It still went by far too quickly and easily for myself, and other family members.

Since Best Buy automatically ships all orders over $25 for free, you’re sure to get both games (or more) for free as well.

Nintendo: Super Smashing Sale – Several Titles On Sale Including Zelda: A Link Between Worlds For $30 (Expired)

Nintendo: Super Smashing Sale   Several Titles On Sale Including Zelda: A Link Between Worlds For $30 (Expired)

Nintendo is lining up all of their arms for the upcoming release of Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo 3DS. Their marketing team is hard at work to spread the word so that every man, woman, and child in North America will know that Super Smash Brothers is going to be huge! Well… let’s not get too carried away here. Either way, the game is on its way out, and Nintendo is celebrating this by having a sale on a number of their older titles for the Nintendo 3DS, and for the Wii U Virtual Console. You’ll be able to directly download these games unto your Nintendo 3DS or Wii U system, so you can play these games shortly after purchasing them!

You can click on the link above to check out the full list of 3DS and Wii U games that are on sale this week (this promotion will last until September 18). Some of the popular titles on sale include the excellent The Legend Of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds for the 3DS ($29.99 – was $39.99), the rare Kid Icarus: Uprising  for the 3DS ($24.99 – was $34.99), and even some classics like The Legend Of Zelda: A Link To The Past for the Wii U ($4.99 – was $7.99) and Mega Man X ($4.99 – was $7.99).

Though my first video game system was the original Nintendo, I especially fell in love with my Super Nintendo system. There were so many games that kept me occupied during those early years of my life, and they still hold up to this day. For instance, one of my favourite games of all time is included in this sale (The Legend Of Zelda: A Link To The Past), which I first played on the Super Nintendo system.

I still remember the day I got that game for my 7th birthday – I got home from my grandma’s house around midnight that night, because we were driving through a terrible snow storm! Thanks to my dad’s driving skills, we made it home without any issues. Of course, the first thing I did when I got home was – you guessed it, I played some Zelda! I was sent to bed after approximately 3 minutes, but I still got to try it out that night!

A great game in this sale is The Legend Of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds for the 3DS. It normally costs $39.99 at Best Buy and Future Shop, so you’ll be able to save $10 on this deal. I’ve listed a snippet of a review of this game from a satisfied Best Buy customer below:

I’m a huge fan of A Link To The Past and this game takes that to a whole new level making for a much more rich experience. I wish the other titles on the 3DS or Wii U for that matter were this good.

Happy gaming, Bargainmoosers – I hope you all enjoy your weekend!

Nintendo: Super Mario 3D World For Wii U Was $60 Now $40 (Expired)

Nintendo: Super Mario 3D World For Wii U Was $60 Now $40 (Expired)

It’s a wonderful time to be a Nintendo Wii U owner! After all, with an influx of popular games out for the system like Mario Kart 8 and Super Mario 3D World, it’s easy to see why many owners of the latest Nintendo system tend to be very loyal to the brand. One of the greatest games out for the Wii U (and in my opinion, one of the greatest Mario games of all time) is on sale for a limited time on the Nintendo eShop – you can download Super Mario 3D World directly on your Wii U console for just $40 – it normally costs $60! This game will easily make you a Nintendo fan once again!

Nintendo’s latest promotion is here to promote the impending arrival of their newest titles in the Smash Bros. franchise, Super Smash Bros. U and Super Smash Bros. 3DS. To increase awareness, Nintendo is discounting several classic (and newer) games in their catalogue each week, which includes Super Mario 3D World for the Wii U ($40) and Yoshi’s New Island for the 3DS ($30). To see a list of all the games that Nintendo has on sale this week, click here.

I originally purchased Super Mario 3D World for the Wii U last year, and I can easily say that it’s one of the greatest games I’ve ever played (definitely in my top 3). What really adds to the fun is the game’s fantastic multiplayer mode, where you can have up to 4 people playing at the same time!

Roaming through the vast 3D landscapes and stomping goombas with your friends is always a good time – in fact, I more than got my money’s worth out of this game, since I literally played it for months! I just had to try and find all of the game’s secret stars so I can unlock extra levels, and it was well worth it! I highly recommend this game for all Wii U owners, and if you don’t have a system yet, I’d also recommend that you buy one. Even if you already have an Xbox One or a PS4, try out this game at one of the many playable kiosks at retail locations, and I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.

If you get the physical copy of Super Mario 3D World, it typically costs $60 at Best Buy and Future Shop. Listed below is a brief review from a satisfied Future Shop customer:

This game is the reason I picked up a Wii U and I’m not regretting it. Great 3D gameplay like Mario Galaxy, but with 4-player cooperative / competitive multi-player. Cat suit adds awesome special moves. Plus, Mario in HD looks amazing!

Here’s to hoping that you have a great, Mario-filled weekend! Happy gaming, Bargainmoosers!
