Animal Crossing: New Leaf falls to its lowest price yet

We know many of you have waiting for this one to hit that magic £20 mark, so now is the time to expand that 3DS games library. It beats the next best offer elsewhere by almost a fiver, which is a significant saving. Perfectly suited to Ninty's handheld thanks to its drop-in, drop-out style of gameplay, the freedom to allow the player to build up the town as they wish to makes it the best and most charming entry in the series... even if it does enslave you to a greedy raccoon, drown you in debt and force you into a life of  menial labour. Thanks to neneromanovagirl @ HUKD!

Get a Nintendo 2DS in White & Red for £69

While we've seen bundles at a similar price in the past that come with a game and / or a small memory card, this deal is currently the cheapest around by about £20. So, if you're looking to experience the extensive 3DS game catalogue on the cheap, or want to buy a device that the kids won't be able to break the hinges on, this is is definitely worth considering. Thanks to Buzz for the heads-up!

Splatoon falls to its lowest price yet

While you could have got it fractionally cheaper with a (now expired) voucher code, this listing is the cheapest we've seen for Splatoon. It beats the next best price elsewhere by £6, which is a huge saving. In our review we said that Splatoon was "approachable for newcomers and enjoyable for old hands" thanks to its fresh approach to third person shooters. With new maps and matchmaking functionality added in recent months, it really has become an essential purchase for Wii U owners. Cheers to BuzzDuraband for the heads-up!

Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy (3DS) - £12.85

This latest offer from ShopTo is the cheapest price we've seen for Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy. Better yet, it beats the next best offer by around £15, making it a fantastic bargain. Sticking to what it knows, the final instalment in the Professor Layton series provided more of the same challenging puzzles spread throughout a highly enjoyable story. It may not be the best entry point into the series, but it's definitely worth playing if you own a 3DS. Cheers to oUkTuRkEyIII for the find!

Don't ink about it, Splatoon is a must buy at £21.99

Splatoon blows third-person shooting wide open with its wildly unique mechanics and uninhibited sense of fun. Approachable for newcomers and enjoyable for old hands, it's an impressive Wii U exclusive, though we'll have to take Nintendo's promises of free DLC and updates on trust. Splatoon Review | Squid Free Or Dye Hard

If you had no interest in Splatoon before today, you very much must have now. Tomorrow sees the introduction of the N-ZAP89, which in retro terms you may remember as the Nintendo Zapper. I'm not sure I should, but I feel the need for a hashtag! #DuckHunt

Get Splatoon on Wii U for just £22

UPDATE: The Game Collection keep running out of stock. If you can't get a copy, you can buy Splatoon for £22.39 at Base!

Here's another one to add to the list of voucher code-based deals in The Game Collection's birthday celebrations, beating the cheapest price elsewhere by a few pounds. In our review we called Splatoon "fresh, messy, raucous and brilliant," and while it was lacking features and maps at launch Nintendo have released a steady stream of content since then. Basically, if you own a Wii U it's a hard to argue against the value at this price. Thanks to littlemonster2011 @ HUKD!

Capcom teases sale of Mega Man's helmet

It's not that I don't believe Capcom. If they say something then, why shouldn't it be happening? Maybe I'm just allowing myself to easily believe that sometimes if something seems too good to be true, then it probably is.

Capcom are teasing the pre-order of the Wearable Mega-Man Helmet stating:

"Due to immense popular demand! There have been many attempts at creating a wearable Mega Man helmet over the years, but it's never been made officially. Made of high quality ABS plastic with a high polish finish, authentic proportions and details, plus working LED lights! A unique clamshell hinge allows the front and back half of the helmet to easily open up to comfortably fit your head inside the soft padded interior for a perfect fit.

Is this the legendary Nintendo PlayStation prototype?

You might not know this, but Nintendo actually hired Sony to create a new console and CD-based storage solution for them many years ago... before Ninty stabbed them in the back and partnered with Phillips at the eleventh hour. Sony then took their ideas and turned it into the original PlayStation, but there must have been some prototypes knocking around back when the two companies were working together.

Apparently one of these prototypes has now been found.

Nintendo knows you hate Metroid Prime: Federation Force, but doesn't really understand why

Of all the games revealed at E3 2015, none was so vocally hated and reviled as Metroid Prime: Federation Force. Fans have even made (some admittedly very silly) petitions for Nintendo to cancel its development immediately, and statistically speaking you probably hate it too.

Reggie Fils-Aime is well aware of the criticism, but doesn't seem to grasp (or more likely isn't willing to acknowledge) the grievances that most gamers actually have.

Up to 30% sale at Nintendo Store

Who doesn't love Nintendo and their merchandise? Ok, I will be completely honest, I didn't around 10 days ago. Until I purchased a Wii U which somehow seemed to eradicate years and years of irrational hatred towards the little red hat wearing Italian and his brother. Meaning this sale has come at the completely perfect time for me.

Unfortunately, there is a £1.99 standard delivery fee for purchases made under £20.00 but I have a feeling the more you buy the happier you'll be.

On a side note, please try to hold no hatred towards me based on jealousy because I am still yet to play and appreciate the likes of Mario, Zelda, Monster Hunter and Donkey Kong. It wasn't intentional, but I am happy it has happened like this.
