Shin Megami Tensei IV | Nintendo Download - oprainfall

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving this year if you live in the United States. There are a few new things available in this week’s Nintendo Download. First off, SEGA has released some new 3D Classics for the 3DS eShop. 3D Space Harrier and 3D Super Hang-On are available this week for $5.99 each. In addition, Ninja Gaiden III: The Ancient Ship of Doom for the NES is available on the 3DS Virtual Console for $4.99. Meanwhile, the Wii U has only received one new offering this week. Contra III: The Alien Wars for the SNES will be available for $7.99 this week.

And since this is Black Friday, it wouldn’t feel right if there weren’t a couple of sales. The first comes from Nintendo’s Gaming Friends sale, this week featuring several Mario games being discounted on both the Wii U and 3DS eShops. Super Mario Bros. and Super Mario Bros. 2 have been reduced to $3.49 on both the Wii U and the 3DS. Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins and Mario and Donkey Kong: Minis on the Move on the 3DS eShop have been discounted to $2.79 and $6.99 respectively. Mario Bros. for the NES and Super Mario World for the SNES have been reduced to $3.49 and $5.59 respectively on the Wii U.

The biggest sale this week by far is for Shin Megami Tensei IV for the 3DS, which was just lowered to $29.99. That’s a full $20 off its usual asking price of $49.99. This sale will last until 9 AM PDT December 2nd.  Of course, it’s worth mentioning that this sale also extends to the physical version, as Amazon has listed it for the same price. So if you’d rather own a physical copy of the game, you can buy it from Amazon.com if live in the United States or Amazon.ca if you live in Canada.

  • Lord Ackercocke

    I’ll order Contra III when I get back home.

  • Ninty

    Wow, why was Shin Megami Tensei IV so expensive before the price cut?

    • Kyle Emch

      Because Atlus.

    • Jeff Neuenschwander

      Well, that and the initial run came with all those extras.

    • smacd

      Which still doesn’t explain why the digital price was $50.

    • Jeff Neuenschwander

      Probably because they didn’t want to undercut physical sales with an initial lower price for digital.

    • smacd

      That’s still not an excuse. If Nintendo or any other company wants us to embrace digital, the prices must make that jump worth it. There is no point in buying the digital version of a game for the same price as what you get the physical PLUS a lot of extra stuff for.

  • Seijien

    SMT4 was worth the $50 price tag for the special edition (and those extra $30), but I think it’s steep for just the game. Guess pre-ordering was the way to go here.

    Buy it while the price is still reasonable!
