For a few months now North Americans with Nintendo Accounts have been able to get discounts on certain games when it’s their birthday. Unfortunately for those of us in Europe we could only look on in envy as our birthdays passed by without a single notification. Thankfully those days are now over!

If you have a Nintendo Account with a linked NNID, and have opted in for promotional emails, you’ll get a notification during your birthday month. You’ll then be able to apply a 30% discount to one game out of a list, which will apparently be updated regularly. Here’s October’s selection:

Wii U:

  • Super Mario Maker
  • Splatoon
  • Yoshi’s Woolly World
  • The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD
  • Xenoblade Chronicles X


  • Monster Hunter™ Generations
  • Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon
  • Bravely Second™: End Layer
  • Tomodachi Life
  • The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes

Whether it’s an exciting new entry in a series long established or a weird experiment meant only for the dedicated, Tom is eager to report on it. Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.
