Sega and Atlus Host Huge Nintendo 3DS and Switch Eshop Sale
Not only is April the month when spring begins, but it’s also when publishers usually offer huge discounts on certain video games. Sony started its sale fairly recently, with a smattering of deals on various PlayStation titles. This includes promotions for a variety of first-party and third-party AAA games, such as Ghost of Tsushima, Auto grand theft 5and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, just to name a few. Nintendo also kicked off its Spring Sale, with limited-time deals for games published by Sega.
This Sega Spring Sale will give gamers the chance to save on many of the publisher’s games, which also include retro titles and AAA hits that have been released. This sale will be running for a very limited time, as it will end on April 17 at 11:59 PM PT, so gamers should consider getting one of these games if that’s something they’re looking at. The deals themselves are pretty good too, ranging from 30% to even 75% off select Eshop titles.
One of them is the 50% off Ultimate Sonic Bundle, which includes three Sonic Games – Sonic Racing Team, Sonic forcesand Sonic Mania – for just $30, a big steal for all three of these Switch games. Three other Sega releases that are also discounted include Sonic Colors: Ultimatewhich is currently selling at 30% off, Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania being 40% off, and even Persona 5 Strikers being half of its original price. A number of classic SEGA AGES games such as phantom star, shinobi, Gain groundand out run obtain similar price reductions.
Interestingly, this sale also features a number of deals on the 3DS side of the Eshop, which specifically cover titles developed by Sega and Atlus. Numerous Shin Megami Tensei games are all currently 60% off, including a number of rarer games that were released early in the 3DS’ lifespan or were limited releases. This includes Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackersboth Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor games, and even the deliciously neglected Stella’s Shard. Both Persona Q the games are also on sale, although they can only be found when purchased through the 3DS Eshop and not on Nintendo’s website.
While the Switch discounts are certainly enticing, the 3DS sales are probably the most interesting part of the sale. Considering that the 3DS and Wii U Eshops are going to be closed next year, these exclusives Shin Megami Tensei and other Atlus released titles will become harder to play without physical copies or digital downloads. As such, fans should consider getting a discounted digital copy of this Sega Spring sale before it’s too late.
