We love a good sale, and this week, it’s Capcom delivering the goods. As Golden Week — a week in Japan where four national holidays occur between 29th April and 3rd May — approaches, many Japanese developers reduce the prices of their games in order to celebrate the break. Well, how else are you going to spend those extra days off?
While Golden Week isn’t celebrated in the West, we do still get to see the discounts. Capcom has slashed the prices of multiple big releases across the Switch and 3DS eShops in North America, starting today! At the time of writing, the sale isn’t currently live in the UK or Europe, but we’ll let you know if that happens. We can’t keep missing out… can we?
Every major Capcom franchise you can think of has had some kind of discount. Ace Attorney? No objections here. Devil May Cry? Let’s rock. Resident Evil? No, you’re not dead — or imagining it. And what about Monster Hunter? The savings are bigger than Bazelgeuse. Street Fighter, too? No need to go for broke.
We’ve got a list of everything that’s on sale for you, thanks to our friends at Nintendo Everything:
Multiple 3DS games for less than a $5 bill? Huge savings on some releases that came out less than a year ago? It’s basically irresistible.
You’ve got a few weeks to snap up anything you want from Capcom’s Golden Week sale, as it doesn’t end until May 15 at 11:59pm PDT / May 16 at 2:59am EDT. You can also make even further savings by grabbing this $50 eShop voucher from Amazon, which is currently discounted to $44.99, and using that to buy any games you’re interested in.
