The Super Mario Collection Amiibo may have sold out on Amazon.com, but Amazon UK has just listed them for pre-order. They’re all available while I type, so be sure to get a pre-order in if you’re thinking of adding them to your collection. They’re retailing for the recommended retail price of £10.99.
Want The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D New Nintendo 3DS XL, but thought you’d missed out? Well it seems as though Amazon UK is stocking them. The Legend of Zelda Majora’s Mask 3D Special Edition comes complete with a copy of the game for you to plough through once you’ve set up the device. It can be ordered here for £226.83.

JVM over at the NeoGAF forums has received sales data for the United Kingdom during 2014. Remember, the United Kingdom is the biggest video game market in the whole of Europe. Sales for software on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One seem to be extremely healthy as UK games clamour for that next generation experience. However, it’s Nintendo platforms that have taken a hit. The Nintendo 3DS and the Wii U software sales aren’t anything to write home about despite several high-profile releases for the Wii U. Let’s hope things change this year.
Thanks, Callum P
Bad luck for those hoping to secure a pre-order for the official Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask New Nintendo 3DS bundle on the Nintendo UK Store as it has now officially sold out. The Nintendo UK Store was the only place to purchase the limited edition Majora’s Mask New Nintendo 3DS in the UK. However, if you want the standard New Nintendo 3DS or New Nintendo 3DS XL then they are still in stock. There’s a variety of bundles so be sure to check them all out, right here.
We’ve already seen the best-selling games in Germany for 2014 and now it’s time for the United Kingdom.

2014 was a bumper year for gamers as there were plenty of high quality titles on offer, especially from Nintendo. Germany is one of the biggest video game markets in Europe so it’s interesting to see which games captivated the heart of the nation. Thankfully, Germany didn’t skip out on the supreme brawler which is Super Smash Bros and neither did they neglect to purchase the crazy Tomodachi Life. Here’s the top twenty best-selling games in Germany during 2014.

With Christmas fast approaching it’s great that retailers are still putting out some top class Wii U hardware deals. UK video game retailer ShopTo is stocking the 8GB Wii U Basic console with Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, New Super Mario Bros U and Nintendo Land for the lucrative price of £189.95. If you’ve yet to purchase a gift for a loved one you might be a little late, but ShopTo generally does next day delivery so there’s a small chance you might get it for Christmas.
