Nintendo Black Friday Sale Offers Half-price eShop Games

And here you always said Nintendo never gave you anything nice.

Nintendo has started its holiday sale on the eShop in North America, with a range of decent but not outstanding discounts on first-party and third-party games for the Wii U and 3DS, available until December 5th.

Wii U owners can pick up The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD and Star Fox Zero for $35 each. There are also discounts on backwards-compatible Wii games and Virtual Console releases, including Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Kirby's Return to Dream Land reduced to $10 and Kirby Mass Attack to $5.

3DS deals include Monster Hunter Generations for $24, Hyrule Warriors Legends for $28 and The Legend of Zelda: TriForce Heroes for $24. You can get Fire Emblem: Awakening for $20, and Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward is yours for a mere $12.49. You can buy all of them through the Nintendo website. If you want to save on Pokemon Sun and Moon, bad luck - that's still full-price everywhere, as far as we can find.

If you want to pick up either console to play them on, there are some similarly okay-ish deals out there at various retailers. The best one we've found is a new Nintendo 3DS for $99 at ToysRUs - you can find the full rundown in our Nintendo Black Friday guide.
