Metroid Dread and Zelda: Skyward Sword HD are cheap as chips on Amazon Australia
Amazon Prime Day 2022 has passed and, unusually, it was pretty light on Nintendo Switch discounts, at least in Australia. Sure, the vanilla Nintendo Switch got a discount, but when it came to savings on first-party Nintendo Switch games, there was next to nothing to be found. Fear not, though: Right now there are surprising savings on two major Switch games.
Metroid Dread is currently AU$49 (opens in a new tab), which is 39% off its usual AU$79.95. We’ve seen it a bit cheaper before – AU$45 – but that’s a good and rare discount on one of the best Nintendo games of 2021.
The biggest drop is on The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD Edition, which goes for AU$39 (opens in a new tab), a hefty 51% off the regular price of AU$79.95. It might not be the most beloved Zelda game ever made, but according to our review (opens in a new tab) it has “amazing dungeon design”, “inventive boss battles”, and feels brilliant without the original version’s Wii control system.
