On Amazon Australia, Metroid Dread and Zelda: Skyward Sword HD are both dirt cheap

Tech Highlights:

  • Metroid Dread is currently AU$49(opens in new tab), which is 39% off its usual AU$79.95. We’ve seen it go slightly cheaper before—AU$45—but that’s a good and rare discount on one of the finest Nintendo games of 2021. The biggest drop is on The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD Edition, which is going for AU$39(opens in new tab), a hefty 51% discount on the usual AU$79.95 price. It may not be the most beloved Zelda game ever made, but according to our review(opens in new tab) it has “incredible dungeon design”, “inventive boss battles”, and feels brilliant without the original version’s Wii control system.

  • Nintendo first-party bargains that are infrequent are always worth a shout. Unusually, there weren’t many Nintendo Switch deals offered during Amazon Prime Day 2022, at least not in Australia. There was a discount available for the standard Nintendo Switch, but there wasn’t much to be had when it came to first-party Switch game discounts. But don’t worry, there are now some unexpected discounts available on two popular Switch titles.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD Edition | AU$79.95 AU$39 at Amazon Described by our reviewer as “one of the most misunderstood games in the [Zelda] series”, this former Wii exclusive plays beautifully on the Nintendo Switch. This 51% discount is unusually generous by Nintendo first-party standards, so if you’re keen to give it a go, now’s a good time.  Metroid fans, even if our reviewer pointed out its “frustrating boss battles and cumbersome controls”. This 39% discount is rare, so if you’ve been waiting on a price drop to jump in, now’s the time.
