Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze 

Tropical Freeze is one of the best 2D platformers ever made. Gamers who love classic Super Mario games will find plenty to get excited about in the latest game from Retro Studios. Tropical Freeze is a gorgeous, smooth game, challenging the player with its devilish level design. It uses creative world-building and stunning presentation to immerse players in the cartoony world of Donkey Kong.

The Switch version of the game also introduces a beginner-friendly mode, allowing players to take control of Funky Kong. This stellar platformer is on sale today for $44 at Amazon, which is $16 off its list price.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Few games of the 2010s had quite as much impact on the industry as Breath of the Wild. The sprawling open-world adventure redefined the Legend of Zelda franchise and gave the then-new Nintendo Switch a killer app. Even four years later, it’s still amazing to take such a massive game on the go. Playing Breath of the Wild on a plane is a surreal gaming experience.

If you still haven’t played this genre-defining title, now is your chance. Breath of the Wild is on sale from GameStop right now for just $40. It doesn’t get much better than 33% off a first-party Nintendo title!

This full-sized gamepad is perfect for competitive games and boasts dozens of hours of battery life on a single charge.

You can grab a Pro Controller from GameStop today for just $59. That’s $10 off its MSRP!
