Nintendo is celebrating one of its most recognizable mascots, and one of our favorite video game heroes of all time! No, I'm not talking about Mario. This week we're celebrating Kirby! Nintendo has posted an honorary sale to its various eShops in honor of the legendary pink puff, and that means great savings for you guys on some of the best Nintendo games you may have never played.

The included games are a great way to play through Kirby's history, from his very first appearance in the Kirby's Dream Land game all the way to last year's Kirby: Planet Robobot. Shop now--the sale ends at 8:59 a.m. PT on Aug. 8."

Solid sale from Nintendo. The discounts aren't much compared to the types of dips we've been seeing on the PSN and Xbox Live stores lately, but they're still good enough to bring this iconic games into the outskirts of impulse-buy territory. If you only grab one, then get the 3D makeover of Kirby's Adventure. After that, Planet Robobot is the latest can't-miss outing, and we think you'll love every second of it.
