All Nintendo Discounts, Offers and Sale - June 2018
Come again? :/
What does that me
Do Smyths have a wider range of Switch games instore than they show on the website? There’s a couple that I want that are listed, but I would like to get Bayonetta 2 as well, but that isn’t on the website
Picked up Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (£42) and Splatoon 2 (£45) along with a PowerA Mario tabletop stand (£15) for £82 with the discount. big poster in the window which contained the T&Cs and it seemed to me that the eshop vouchers are excluded (can't remember the wording)but I didn't ask, so don't take my word for it.
I think the people who bought the exact same game for the Wii U. I mean, Mario Kart has been pretty much the same game since the N64, even on the handhelds. Double Dash with two people on one Kart was the last significant change in the franchise and although I loved it it isn't something that has been seen repeated as far as I'm aware. I've not actually played this latest Mario Kart though so I'll probably get it tomorrow.
I like the green Zelda one, but not enough to make me want to shop in Fat Mike's Jumbo Emporium O' Cheap Tat.
I wont buy from these idiots again, i ordered about 10 items only to have an several emails to tell me only 2 of them are actually in stock even though the item were still showing as in stock!
Not unless you’re planning on ordering more stuff. It might be in store anyway :)
In my local they’ve never tried to sell a magazine (lol) IMO the tracksuit is the best of them all
Was fine earlier- not your connection is it?
Another Another ‘neg ferret’ commenting! It’s money for for old rope!
In my world? No. On hukd, maybe, we're stretching comparatives here. Again, pointless. The majority of freebies require something paid for, thats what im saying. Pointless argument. If its not pointless to you, then I do hope your pushing your point on all applicable freebies. Otherwise ask yourself why here and nowhere else? Fanboy? I wouldn t even wish I had time for that nonsense, nintendo, xbox, ps, really couldnt give a rats arse about whose better, if "I" enjoy something thats all that matters.
Stupidity? So these games with gold and ps+ are free in your world huh? And "again" is obviously in reference to nintendo re-releasing wii u games at full price yet again for the sad nintendo fans that accept it and lap it up.
Not sure if "again" is in reference to Game or Nintendo but cant see why you have to buy again on Nintendo, unless you're coming from old to new console. Either way its a pretty poor/pointless argument, its a freebie in as much as the majority of freebies are. When you start saying its not free because you have to buy the games first, you're diving head first into the rabbit hole of stupidity.
Overpriced compared to what? Many PS4 games are now £60 new on PSN. Nintendo have priced their products according to the market and looking at their sales it seems that the price is just fine. You're on HUKDs so must know that you can get most Switch games sub £40 if you shop around/wait for offers/use codes.
I don't agree. Cheaper than games were 25 years ago. Hunt for special offers etc. I rarely pay over £40 And often closer £30. I paid £50 for starfox in the 90s.
Switch games, so far at least, are 90% shovelware from the Wii U. Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze on Wii U, £15 - £19.99 digitally (popcorn) Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze on Switch, £49.99 digitally. (poo) Its a straight port with minimal changes, lol "Funky Kong". This is the reason I will never buy a Switch... I have a Wii U and already feel I own one ;)
Getting Rayman and Splinter Cell, £10 bones all in (strong)
I mean the switch games are over priced not Wii u
Usually when you want to change region and have credit balance it says you will lose the balance and allows you to change region, but people have reported that when they changed their region to an American one, topped it up and bought a game, when it came to changing their region back it didn't let them, and says to contact Nintendo. Apparently it's a case of asking Nintendo to remove the remaining credit, so not a huge problem. Could be the same for other countries too I guess, but seemingly the problem is when it's an entirely different region ie Europe/America/Japan *I just had a thought, if this did happen where someone was trying to revert to a European region from an American one but it wasn't letting them, perhaps first changing to a different American region would allow it ? :)
I think it's a problem with accounts that have credit balances on the whole, as people reported losing credit or the like when changing country, if memory serves?
@jaffacat Beware not to change the region of your main account to US/Canada/Mexico and load it with a Nintendo top-up voucher for that region, as people have then found themselves unable to change their region back again, and needed to contact Nintendo to do so. So probably best to make a separate account for American regions. However, someone did recently comment on another thread saying they created an American Paypal account, linked it to their main Nintendo account and bought a game successfully. - Comment posted by @vaderag on thread hotukdeals.com/comments/permalink/34085557
Go to your Nintendo account in a browser (MyNintendo) and change your region in the profile. Go into the eShop on your Switch - you will need to enter your password again. Add game to basket. Pay using a PP account/credit card/voucher card/pre-paid fee-free card that works for that particular shop. For example, EU eShops will all be fine with Revolut pre-paid MasterCard. Mexico and US don't like it and it's tricky to validate a US/MX paypal account, so eShop vouchers for that region are suggested. When paid, change your region back in your profile in a browser. Log back into eShop (password again). Game available to download.
new to nintendo e-shop how do you get this? Not sure
Yep that was me, totally gutted now
I'm about 3 hours in and it's tremendous fun - playing on PS4.
They have good mechanics to allow you to launch - it isn't with a plunger, but clever "flipper" mechanisms that put you into the pinball section. If you lose the ball, you lose three pieces of fruit (the collectable item in this game, that is also used for unlocking flippers, that gets you into new sections of the world too), and the ball rolls into the launch mechanism again. You can use the flippers to control travel into other parts of the pinball sections too, by blocking and opening routes. Time to move hands is absolutely fine. It won't be an issue and nothing is really on a timer - you can rest easy.
Thanks! Perhaps a silly follow up question but do the pinball sections go straight into it, or domthey pause and allow you to 'launch' the ball? Just wondering if there would be time to move my hands!!
It uses the left stick/pad for navigation, L and R for flippers, and A for prompts etc. There is no jumping outside of pinball areas, but yes, not just flippers, as you will be walking around a bit too.
OH MAH GAWD!!!! GO GO GO!!! (excited)
Quickly! Legend of zelda breath of the wild is free at the moment! ;)
This was posted earlier also...
Go easy guys, clearly just a mistake
This is a very short game, but that's OK. It's still a good game. When you think that this is less than the price of a bus ticket, that seems fair to me for three hours entertainment.
It does look like a cool game. I mainly wanted it for the classic Mario golf style gameplay. I'll be curious to see how it plays. :) But this year I promised myself if I pick up a game I have to play it through fully before testing another game. I got a list of half finished games as I jump from one to another often. Also,. Really liking Nioh :p
Bit of both really. It has RPG elements like upgrading your ability and completing quests to unlock extras that will give you extra perks when playing gold. TBH none of the side quests or main story feels necessary like the do in other games, the story and dialogue is so well written it's a real pleasure to interact with the NPCs so you do it for that reason anyway. I was playing owlboy and put it down to try golfstory and havent played anything else since, its a blast you should defo pick it up if youre interested. Edit: I see you've already bought it (embarrassed) Hope you enjoy it!
I'm really enjoying it and don't really like golf games usually. It's a nice little RPG.
Purchased it. Will play it another night as been wanting to play Nioh! :)
Wind your neck in (flirt)
Is this worth pecking up?
Very easy I game I flew through it 🐥
Grub grub grub! Thanks op (lol) 8)
£10.38 on the Russian eshop for those that are happy changing region..
Ordered, thanks! I kept checking it for a while but no store had it in stock. Not for me but think my partner will appreciate this :D
Yes it has a good single player campaign with a crazy but fun storyline, it also provides a variety of challenges and if you suck at Puyo Puyo like me then it lets you skip past those once you've failed three times
For anyone who's unsure as to whether to take the plunge there's a (rather generous too) demo on the eshop :D.
Fair enough. It's been in stock in London for months...
Been out of stock for months.....
Ok, I downloaded the Switch and 3ds demo and it’s way more beautiful on switch. The stereoscopic 3d didn’t add as much depth as I’d hoped for a game like this and the analogue stick of the switch makes it easier to see on top of things (on 3ds youre more likely to use L and R to rotate the camera than use the nub).
But the bottom screen is optimised, albeit not to any great extent... Even in the video you posted the bottom screen isn't EXACTLY the same as the top, as it shows number of lives, coins, number of diaminds collected, and info text. Whereas the top screen does not. This alone shows that the bottom screen isn't just a straight duplicate of the top. You do realise that this was never intended to be a sequel, and Nintendo never claimed it to be, right? The whole point of this port (and the Switch version) is to give what is a great game the opportunity to reach a larger audience. I agree with you that if you own or have played the Wii U version, there isn't gonna be a lot here for you, but that doesn't really make it a 'lazy port'.
Except there are loads more people with a 3DS than a Wii U which is basically who this is aimed at. Your complaints are a bit misleading - normally when people hear 'lazy port' they think poor optimisation and doesn't run well, but you're actually just upset that there are no added bells and whistles to a game you already own.
Don't forget, the Wii U version had some touch screen implementation. So the image is doubled on the 3DS so the top screen can benefit from 3D visuals (it's been confirmed to be in 3D), whilst the bottom can function for touch screen actions. It's a port of the Wii U game, so if you've already got that and aren't fussed about playing it on the go, then it's probably not worth it for you. But to decide to not buy it because the action is repeated on a second screen (as it was on the Wii U) seems a bit odd to me.
I have a switch and Wii U but was thinking of getting this on 3ds for the 3d. This duplicate screen is very off-putting... even if they’d had just a pause button and a logo it’d be nicer. ill have to try the demo to see if I’ll go ahead or not. good price though thanks!
Nope, you don't have a clue what you're talking about. I'll leave it at that.
It would be the same whatever we were talking about. You need instant gratification. Not a nintendo fanboy btw. Just a games fan that owns just about every console made. I bid you goodnight
Haha, and you sound like a petulant Nintendo fanboy. Why do you get nasty when someone has a different opinion? Why do you get upset because someone doesn't like something the same amount as you do? Also, I'm not a millennial as it happens, I'm 38 but that's not the point - I'm a consumer and I'll buy games from companies that are invested in their user base. If Nintendo continue in this same vein then I will look elsewhere. Drop in the ocean of course and of little concern to most but that's my prerogative. I find your childish retorts typical of any fanboy. I mean, how dare I criticise the precious Nintendo
You sound like an entitled millennial that can’t wait for anything, sell your games collection and find a new hobby
So when are these games coming out? Am I supposed to hold onto the system for another year because a game or two might come out? Also, you can't assume that even though some of these are big titles for the Switch, it doesn't necessarily mean that I want to buy all of them because I'm not interested in them so where does that leave me? There's not really a lot of choice for the average gamer. Wolfenstein and FIFA are hardly third party support but I guess time will tell.
just had the email to mine had been changed and having checked I'm on the mini figure edition. This is a very good deal especially for a switch release and with the minifigure the is arguably worth at least a fiver
i dont have Nintendo Switch but thinking of getting for the mini figure then resell the game on ebay, guess could recoup costs
Awesome thank you. cancelled pre-order at Amazon which was £39.99 PRIME. [PS4 version is the same price]
Same here too must be an error as says £8.99 on site too - well done!
£7.99 here. Top find, heat.
cant go wrong with this.. thanks op
My mate has a NES controller belt. He asks you to press B, and he punches you if you do. Says "well, you did hit attack".
7.99 Delivered. Great find!
So annoying!! Always miss the stuff I wanted.
Thats why I kept an eye on the Tesco ones, was 69.99 for days and then suddenly next morning they didn't even sell them, can only assume they dropped in price early morning and somebody bought them!!
They are!!, just hope there’s another deal on them soon, but I doubt it lol
Great price, I've held off as I think they a bit overpriced!!
I missed the yellow ones too gutted!
I did a system transfer the other day and it was pretty easy
I Cheers purchase cancelled
Ahh I see, fair enough then Makes me a bit more confident for if I ever get round to picking up a Switch
With switch I think games are now linked to your account and not the system. But that's not the case for older devices.
Had my comment deleted and was told to be courteous... yet migavupes sarcastic and unnecessary comment stays 👌🏼
Knew I should of gone with the eevee pic (cheeky) (cheeky) (cheeky)
Did you pay up front for your fiesta? That’s where you went wrong this is no money up front with the ability to cancel At any point if you find a better deal or demand doesn’t put way supply (angel) (angel) (angel)
I just bought a Ford fiesta at twice it's retail price. Crazy to some but if they have none next year when I actually want it, it will be a bargain.
It also acts as Pokémon GO plus, which are around 20-25
Yup the games are £40 on Base and the Pokeball is £45 on Amazon / Game. Probably is a deal based on the RRP, however not with the pre-order price's out at the moment.
I liked the cartoons intro on original Splatoon. Better than a loading screen
EXACTLY how I do my SA eshop spending :D
Jolly hockey sticks. Will be topping up my revolut card in a minute 😁
No problems. The key thing is that your region (in this case) is EU - UK, SA, doesn't matter - they are both EU region.
I have the UK cart. If I'm signed in and buy this via SA, I should be fine? Or issues down the line re-downloading?
I wonder if people clicking cold button instead of hot by mistake?!?!?
Heat from me for this bundle.
Yes for the physical copy it’s a good deal and I much prefer that to digital but each to their own of course.
I believe it's because you can currently get a Switch on its own for around 250 and Splatoon 2 is currently 33 pound digitally on the eShop. Still think it's an okay deal especially because it comes with a physical version of Spla2n.
I would have purchased it at the time had that been clearer. Ended up buying at Argos with the free Cars 3 game and getting Splatoon 2 with my clubcard points. Don’t know why this deal is cold though as I searched for ages and this is a good price for this bundle.
If anyone bagged one please let us know if it actually gets delivered as Music Magpie may say it got "lost in the post" as it does for other items like games when they feel they get screwed over on the price.
Lol (lol) .
Hope the people posting these 10am deals don't actually want one themselves (lol)
Yes there are. I've had mine playing arcade and PS1 games. There is a really active scene.
No. By Snob I mean you look down your nose at almost everything you deem not worthy.
If by snob you mean I choose quality over tat, then yes.
You really are the worst kind of snob, aren't you?
Carbon fibre in a controller woulnt make sense as you would not get any benefits of that material. Well If cheap and tacky looking objects are your bag good for you (y)
From 1 year ago or 20 years ago, my point still stands. Besides, it's not like recently we've been getting controllers made from carbon fibre and the like. They make look "god awful" to you, but, people (not me) said the same about Wind Waker on release. Differing opinions today.
