Nintendo is famously stingy when it comes to sales and price drops on its first-party games. Until the company releases a Nintendo Selects edition of a game, you can generally expect to pay full price, regardless of how long ago it came out--especially digital versions. So it's nice to see Nintendo offering a pre-order bonus for Mario Tennis Aces, which is set to launch June 22.

If you buy the game on the Nintendo Switch Eshop between now and June 21, you'll get 300 bonus Gold Points, for a total of 600 Gold Points for the purchase. That's worth $6 in Eshop credit you can use on any future purchases.

Granted, this doesn't amount to a huge savings, especially compared to Amazon's 20 percent off game pre-orders with Prime. It's also limited because you have to spend it on future Eshop orders instead of getting an immediate discount. But seeing as this is an unreleased digital Nintendo game, it's surprising to see.

Nintendo offered a demo/beta of sorts for Mario Tennis Aces earlier this month. By participating, you were able to unlock a free bonus costume in the full game. You can look for our review in the coming days.
