Sales on Nintendo games are a rare and beautiful thing. But even Nintendo can’t resist the allure of the biggest sales period of the year. Nintendo’s eShop Cyber Deals event began last week and runs through December 5.

The sale mostly includes older third party titles, but there are a few notable exceptions. For Nintendo 3DS, you can grab 2013’s Fire Emblem Awakening for $19.99 and last year’s Monster Hunter Generations for $23.99.

On Wii U you can find The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD for $34.99, Super Mario Galaxy 2 for $9.99, and Mighty No. 9 for $9.99. Both platforms include a bevy of LEGO games, including LEGO Jurassic World and LEGO Avengers.

If you’re a My Nintendo member, you can earn Gold Points with each digital game purchase. The points can be used to purchase clothing outfits in Miitomo, discounts on games, or digital themes for Nintendo 3DS.

To aid in your holiday shopping, Nintendo have put together a Holiday Gift Guide. You can easily search through their biggest releases of the year, as well as find great games specifically for kids. The Nintendo Selects branding offers older classic Wii U and 3DS games for a cheaper price.

For our recommendations on new games, check out Pixelkin’s 2016 Holiday Guide. We list many of the biggest (and smaller) games of the year, including sections for the Nintendo Wii U and 3DS.

It’s worth noting that the Wii U is no longer in active production, and Nintendo’s newest console, the Switch, will be released in March of next year.

The Nintendo eShop Cyber Deals sale ends at 9 am PT on December 5.
