Here's what's on offer this year.

9 Comments

Updated November 23 with details on Nintendo's eShop sale.

With Black Friday just days away, we already know many of the gaming deals you can expect to see this year. If you were hoping the combination of the Switch's announcement and Black Friday would drive some good Wii U system deals, it looks like you may be out of luck.

While there aren't quite as many deals of interest to Nintendo fans as those on other platforms, there are still some worthwhile deals for both Wii U and 3DS. We've rounded up some of the best for you below. Keep in mind that stock (and timing) may be limited, and that not every game on sale has necessarily been listed in the flyers. We also don't yet know what deals will pop up on Amazon and elsewhere.

Be sure to let us know what you plan on getting or if you've found any better deals in the comments below! And don't forget to check out our roundups of PS4, Xbox One, PC, and entertainment deals.

$100 New 3DS

Nintendo advertised this one well in advance of Black Friday, revealing it will offer two special-edition versions of the New 3DS for $100 at select retailers. Mind you, this is not the larger New 3DS XL, but it is the cheapest that this system has ever been offered for, and you get to choose from two exclusive designs. [Full details]
