Numerous NES Titles Reduced Starting This Thursday in Europe

Nintendo have certainly upped their game over the last 12 months when it comes to sales, with new offers almost every week on the eShop. And this week will be no different, with a whole host of NES games set to be reduced by up to 50% – though only if you own one of the NES Remix games.

This looks like it’ll be a rolling promotion, with promise of new titles in future weeks – what would you like to see discounted?

European PayPal eShop Card Store Now Open!

Ever wanted to gift a friend the wonderful gift of eShop credit? Or maybe you’ve been searching for ages to find eShop cards at retailers? Until now these task have proven to be quite challenging. Luckily for you Nintendo are here to save the day like Mario or Link, as they have just announced via Twitter that Europeans can now purchase eShop Credit through a simple PayPal payment!

What used to take a tedious amount of work now only takes a couple clicks of a button. The cards listed are only good for the UK eShop, though you can also purchase cards in the Euro at the German website here! Don’t speak a word of German? Don’t worry, the UK site looks nearly identical but you can always use a translator to ease your nerves!

Unfortunately there is currently no word on the US PayPal Gift store yet, though I am confident eShop Cards will be listed on there soon enough.
