Nintendo @ gamescom 2019 – Announcements
Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020
Nintendo have announced that Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 will launch on November 8th in Europe (with North America and Japan most likely getting it on the same day). It’s now available for pre-purchase on the Nintendo eShop for 59.99€ / £49.99, and requires 6.3GB of free space. Since the languages available include English, Spanish, French, Portuguese, German, Italian, Dutch, and Russian, it’s most definitely not a global SKU.
The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening
Starting today, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening is available for pre-purchase on the Nintendo eShop in Europe and North America. The game costs 59.99€ / £4.99 / 6 458 Yen, and requires 5.8GB. It’s a global SKU, which means all languages are available worldwide (including English in Japan, of course).
In Europe, there’s a special offer: if you pre-purchase or buy the game before September 22nd, you will get twice the usual amount of Gold Coins (up to 6€ / £5). Do note that this offer also applies if you buy the game using a Nintendo Switch Game Voucher, though the total value of the Gold Coins will only be half of what someone buying the game without a voucher will get (since you already get a discount via the Voucher).
Here’s some more screenshots for the game:
