Nintendo announces first ever eShop sale

Nintendo has announced they’re hosting an eShop sale over this holiday season, but don’t start emptying your wallets just yet. Since the Wii U’s eShop is still new, only three games have been featured”

  • Chasing Aurora (US$7.50/£5.39/AU$7.80, ends Jan 3rd)
  • Little Inferno (US$9.99/£8.39/AU$9.99, ends Jan 4th)
  • Trine 2 (US$15.99/not yet available in other regions, ends Jan 7th)

It’s not quite a Steam sale, but at least it’s something. Curiously, one of the eShop’s better offerings (aside from Trine 2), Nano Assault Neo, isn’t part of the sale which is a real shame. Regardless, it’s very much worth a look if you haven’t had one already. Alternatively if you’re looking for more titles to nab for your console (both retail and downloadable), be sure to check out our comprehensive Wii U Holiday Buyer’s Guide.

What do you think about this move so far? It’s not much, but would you agree that it’s a step in the right direction for Nintendo? Have your say in the comments below.
