It's always been in my mind that Nintendo and “Black Friday deal” don't go together, and I think regardless of the contents of this article, that's still largely true. It's just not the same as getting a new microwave (which we need and don't have — and burning things with fire breath doesn't count as microwaving, as we've quickly come to realise in the Koopa household).
...That said, Nintendo is offering these deals until December 5th, giving you plenty of time to figure out if you want up to 50% off on certain games. Games getting the full 50%-off treatment range from Mighty No. 9 (lol) to the excellent Zero's Escape: Virtue's Last Reward. There's also Mega Man Legacy Collection; which is one cent cheaper on the 3DS eShop that competing systems, AND for a longer period of time. Thanks, CAPCOM!

Note the Mega Man Legacy Collection prices.
I don't plan to buy anything Nintendo-related this weekend, and I already have Pokémon Moon somewhere in the Paratroopa-ran postal service. I still haven't even played Zero Escape: Zero Time Dilemma (30% off, from $39.99 to $27.99)!
Speaking of CAPCOM sales, this is the first holiday opportunity in a long time that they haven't reduced the sales price for an Ace Attorney game. Could the era of massive price slashes for Ace Attorney games be over?!?
By the way, here's Nintendo's exclusive Black Friday deal that you have missed if you didn't hear about it before this article:
|From the Nintendo Holiday Gift Guide 2016.|
Do note that it's a New Nintendo 3DS, and not a New Nintendo 3DS XL. The difference is that this model is smaller, and is compatible with a line of face-plates that they don't even sell in stores. ...Yeah. Plus, it's an edition with Super Mario crap all over it. You want that plumber (and his brother) on your New 3DS? I sure wouldn't. Sure, there's a Koopa Troopa and a Lakitu there, but they aren't slitting human-scum throats so I'm not very pleased by it.
Are you pleased by anything Nintendo is offering for sale this holiday? Have you actually made a purchase? If you actually have decided to buy something and need to replenish your funds, have you looked into participating in the KoopaTV Loyalty Rewards Program, which gives out Nintendo eShop codes, and for this round from November to December, Amazon codes, as well?
This article is quite reminiscent of last year's Black Friday deals article.
The games on sale for the Thanksgiving Cyber Deals are mostly different than the ones for the sale following E3 2016.
There actually is an Ace Attorney sale after this. It only took a month.
