Update (11/19): Amazon’s lineup has been updated in recent days. Dragon Quest XI S is no longer included, but Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition and Tokyo Mirage Sessions are in. You can check out the lineup here.


Original (11/15): Much like what’s taking place with Target this week, Amazon is running another buy 2, get 1 free sale. The latest offer focuses entirely on video games. Amazon recently held a similar offer going that included a few other entertainment categories as well.

Some games are returning, but some additional titles have been added to the selection as well. Dragon Quest XI S is still here, though now the just-released Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory is included, as is Astral Chain.

You can check out the full selection here. Based on Target’s new sale, the offer should last through November 21.

For Best Buy’s deal of the day, a trio of Switch games have been discounted. You can save $15 on Dragon Quest XI S, Octopath Traveler, and Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order. They’re down to $44.99 from $59.99.

You can order these games from Best Buy here. Amazon has also price-matched the full set, and can be found here. We’ll also mention that Dragon Quest XI S is included in Amazon’s buy 2, get 1 free sale here.

Amazon seems to be taking a page out of Target’s book with its own buy 2, get 1 free sale. There are some notable games included like Dragon Quest XI S, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, and Prinny 1-2: Exploded and Reloaded. More titles are expected to be added in the days ahead.

You can check out Amazon’s sale page here. Note that board games, movies, music, and books are also included.

Nintendo and Amazon have teamed up in a bit of an interesting way. Throughout November, you may find that a package you’ve ordered from the retailer has arrived in a box themed after Super Mario Bros.

Nintendo says that “the Super Mario Bros. branded Amazon boxes are in limited quantity and will be used randomly, while supplies last.” Furthermore, buying a Nintendo product won’t increase the chance of receiving the branded box.

Outside of the box, there’s another small aspect of the partnership. Amazon has opened a page here where My Nintendo members can earn 100 Platinum Points. The Super Mario Bros. 35th anniversary page lets you look at various Mario products, view a history of the franchise, and find hidden trivia.

The Switch version of Atelier Ryza 1 has been tough to find for awhile now at retail. If you’ve been looking for a physical copy, you might have turned your attention to eBay, where the prices can be pretty astronomical.

The good news is that an official restock is now happening. Koei Tecmo has confirmed that there will be a reprint/restock “soon” on Amazon. Other retailers may receive new inventory as well, but that’s not confirmed currently.

We’ll keep an eye out on that restock and will let you know when Atelier Ryza is more widely available again.
