Another weekend, another eShop discount. This time, Sakura Samurai: Art of the Sword gets the special treatment, being discounted to $4.99 for the weekend instead of its usual $6.99. Like last week’s sale on VVVVVV, the sale lasts until Monday, so if you haven’t bought it yet, go do it this weekend!

In other news, two more NES games have been released for the 3DS as part of Nintendo’s 8-Bit Summer. The Legend of Zelda and NES Open Tournament Golf, two games previously exclusive to 3DS Ambassadors, are now available for $4.99 each. Finally, the Heroes of Ruin demo is now available. Look for our impressions of the demo on the site in the near future.
