Nintendo is holding a huge new sale this week for a number of titles related to the Super Mario series on Switch, Switch Lite, and Switch OLED consoles. For those who have been Nintendo fans for quite some time, you’re probably well aware that the Japanese game developer almost never discounts its first-party games outside of some very rare instances. Fortunately, in the lead-up to “Mario Day”, which is happening later this week, Nintendo has opted to hold one of its best sales so far in 2023.
Starting today, March 5th, and lasting until March 11th, Nintendo has taken 33% off of nine different games tied to Mario on Switch. Specifically, each game that is included in this sale only retails for $39.99 and should be available for this price at retailers such as Amazon, Target, Walmart, and GameStop. Additionally, this deal extends to some of the most critically-acclaimed games that have ever come to Switch such as Super Mario Odyssey and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
Beyond simply being tethered to Super Mario, there are a couple of games that Nintendo has featured in this sale that one typically wouldn’t associate with the company’s mascot. In particular, both Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and Yoshi’s Crafted World are also on sale in the coming week as well. While both titles don’t feature Mario outright, both Yoshi and Donkey Kong historically have ties to Super Mario, so it’s logical to see Nintendo mark these games down as well.
Are you going to look to pick up any of these Mario titles as part of this new promotion from Nintendo? Or do you happen to already own most of these Switch games that are included in the sale? Be sure to let me know either down in the comments or hit me up on Twitter at @MooreMan12.
