Nintendo fans know that the company’s games don’t often go on sale — meaning anyone looking for a title with Zelda, Mario, Luigi, Pikmin or other Nintendo-specific characters is accustomed to paying full price. Thankfully, Prime Day is offering a respite.

Don’t delay, however, as we expect these Nintendo sales to expire soon.
