Rare Nintendo sale alert: Breath of the Wild is $40 this week

April 06, 2020 1 min read

Nintendo's first-party stuff never really goes on sale. That's the double-edged sword of Nintendo's Seal of Quality -- when games are this good, you don't need to lower the price. It's rare to find anything more than modest discounts on the best games.

GameStop actually has some pretty great Switch deals this week. The highlight is The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wildย for $40. That $40 threshold is pretty much the lowest Nintendo games go, so this is basically as good as it gets.

The deal applies to both physical and digital copies. If you want it immediately, pick digital. If you want physical, have it shipped. If you're the bold and daring type, venture out to GameStop and buy it in-store.

This is part of GameStop's Spring Sale that runs through April 11. It's fun to imagine Reggie brokered the sale between GameStop and Nintendo, but the retailer's newest board member probably didn't call in a favor. But the idea that Reggie is stretching old connections so that Nintendo's games are finally on sale -- it's too good to go unmentioned.

Here's the noteworthy Switch stuff that's part of GameStop's Spring Sale:
