Nintendo is celebrating the fifth anniversary of the eShop with a big sale from this Thursday, 9th June. 3DS, Wii U and Virtual Console software will all be discounted until June 23rd.

The list of discounted titles is pretty huge - I've picked out some of the highlights:

  • 50% off Zelda games: Oracle of Ages, Oracle of Seasons, and Link's Awakening DX are all £2.69 each - and all of them are portable masterpieces of the Game Boy Colour age. Minish Cap is £3.09, Ocarina of Time is £4.49, and Link to the Past is £2.69. That's a nearly complete collection of the best older Zelda games for around £20.
