Also be sure to keep track of Amazon’s Black Friday deals calender here. We’ll be seeing things like Smash Bros. for Wii U with $15 credit, and sales for Mario Kart 8, Mario Kart 7, Super Mario 3D Land, and Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric.

GameStop’s Black Friday 2014 ad has gone live.

Unfortunately, there aren’t a whole lot of notable deals here. You can save $10 on Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric… but you’d probably be better off not buying the game at all.

In any case, you can find the Nintendo-related items from GameStop’s Black Friday ad above.
