work for you?
Like Microsoft and Sony, Nintendo had a lot to share for E3, including new characters for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and a number of long-awaited sequels. But, more importantly for us, the Mario manufacturer is offering some nice discounts on some of its most popular games.
While Walmart has slightly lower prices on some of the games, the 5% in Gold Points you receive for buying digital at the Nintendo eShop will save you more in the long run. If you also have a balance of Gold Points from previous purchases, you can apply it to chop down the price even more. That said, Walmart is a particularly good option if you have gift cards you're looking to use.
To help save you some time, we have assembled a small sampler of the deals you can find on Nintendo's online store and Walmart. It's also worth noting that some sales are specific to one site and not the other.
