Nintendo’s European eShop is kick-starting the new year in style with a number of discounts from Thursday, January 1. And though the rewards programme concludes on December 31 for deluxe Wii U owners, there’s no time to feel blue with special offers on Shovel Knight, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate and New Super Mario Bros. U until January 8.
To celebrate the arrival of 2015, Nintendo of Europe are hosting a “Mario Bros.’ New Year’s Offer” for the Wii U, which includes both New Super Mario Bros. U and New Super Luigi U for €59.99 / £49.99 instead of the usual combined price at €79.98 / £67.98. While those who prefer to explore the plains in Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate can do so with a neat 50 per cent discount from Capcom, making it just €29.99/£24.99 rather than the usual €59.99 / £49.99 on both Wii U and 3DS.
But if a platform adventure is more to your taste, Shovel Knight will also be discounted for a limited time on Wii U and 3DS. Users can download the game at €9.99/£8.66 instead of the usual €14.99 / £12.99. Let us know if you’ll be picking up any of the games on offer this week in the comment section below.
