Every year, March 10th marks a special day in the calendar in that it’s MAR10 Day! To celebrate Mario and the mustachioed icon’s adventures, Nintendo is running a special Gold Points promotion, discounting Nintendo Switch games, and distributing a special My Nintendo reward.
Until 11.59pm local time today, those in Europe can earn double Gold Points when they buy Super Mario Odyssey, New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Party, or Mario Tennis Aces on the Nintendo eShop.
Whereas for those in North America, until Saturday 16th March you can buy a Nintendo Switch console and any one of those same five games for $329.98. That would save you $30 compared to normal, and those that have already bought the portable home console can buy download codes for the any of games at participating retailers or online, priced at $39.99.
“What better way to celebrate Mario Day than by playing some of the most popular Mario games on Nintendo Switch,” enthuses Nintendo of America’s senior vice president of sales and marketing, Doug Bowser. “This promotion is a great option for consumers who want to pick up Nintendo Switch and some hit games at a value price.”
My Nintendo users can also choose to spend 50 Platinum Points to receive an exclusive Happy MAR10 DAY digital wallpaper.
