Below are the latest Nintendo products that can be currently pre-ordered at retailers:

GameStop has revealed its full slate of deals set to go live this coming week as part of Black Friday 2018. The retailer shared its flyer for the big event today.

For Nintendo fans, one of the big highlights concerns a Switch deal. GameStop will be selling the $300 Mario Kart 8 Deluxe bundle with a $50 gift card, which is pretty darn good. There are some game sales as well including L.A. Noire for just $9.99.

A couple of weeks after it appeared in the west, the 3DS remake of Luigi’s Mansion has debuted in Japan. In its first week, the game sold about 27,000 copies. Dengeki further reports a sell-through rate of 45%.

Dengeki adds that Luigi’s Mansion’s initial sales seem a bit slow given the performance of Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon. The latter game sold nearly 350,000 copies in its first week and over one million overall.

We do have to remember a couple of things here. First, many players have moved on from 3DS to Switch. We also have to keep in mind that this is ultimately a remake. It’ll be interesting to see how Luigi’s Mansion 3 does in 2019.


Famitsu held a live stream this week in which more footage from Persona Q2 was shown – specifically of the second dungeon. Watch the full recording below.
