Ordinarily, they would be $5.99, but Nintendo is running a promotion from now until June 20th, where you can get each game for $4.99. This means you can get both of these great games for about $10.
That’s not to say the Wii U hasn’t received any content either. Both Mega Man X for the SNES and Ghosts ‘n Goblins for the NES are available on the Wii U’s Virtual Console this week for $7.99 and $4.99 respectively. Capcom is also running its own sales promotion for these two games. If you buy one of these titles, you can get the other for half off. This offer lasts until June 6th.
Speaking of discounts, Two Tribes also slashed the price of Toki Tori 2 down to $11.24 instead of $14.99 until June 6th. Also, Ubisoft is reducing the eShop version of Just Dance 4 down to $34.99 until June 4th, as well as reducing the prices of various songs for the game down to $2.10.
