Wow, actual sales that go along with an event. Only took Nintendo 4 years to get with everyone else.

These discounts on Super Mario Odyssey and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 are only available in the US. It must be killing Nintendo to reduce the price of a couple of their games. But then they have to be seen to be doing something. The 3rd party discounts are more substantial and some of the games are only on the Switch a couple of months.
