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!
