Nintendo Direct: New Nintendo Switch and 3DS Games Now Available to Pre-Order With Discounts


Yesterday’s Nintendo Direct was loaded with exciting new announcements like Super Smash Bros, Okami HD, and Crash Bandicoot for the Nintendo Switch as well as Luigi’s Mansion and Warioware Gold for the 3DS. The vast majority of these games have been made available to pre-order, and there are already some fantastic deals to be had.

For your convenience, we’ve rounded up all of the latest Nintendo Direct announcements, complete with release dates and links where they can be pre-ordered. The pre-orders that include discounts have been marked. Note that the 20% Amazon Prime discount is live for several of the titles, and we expect that they will be activated for the rest in due time. Surprisingly, GameStop was already offering discounts of as much as $20 on a handful of titles, so you might want to jump on those as quickly as possible because they probably won’t last. If you’re a Best Buy Gamers Club Unlocked member, these titles should be available with 20% discounts soon.

If you’re a bit gun shy about pre-ordering games, there isn’t much to worry about here. Nintendo has been killing it with ports for the Switch, and the games are classics, so you know what to expect there. And come on - you know you’re getting Super Smash Bros. when it comes out. Might as well save that 20% now because you certainly won’t get a better deal for a long time after the game launches. That $20 off deal on Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is also as good as it’s going to get - plus it’s open to everyone.
