A long weekend is almost upon us. Nintendo fans shouldn’t worry if it turns out to be a wet one – another four releases are lined up for the Switch, while the 3DS eShop sees a sizeable sale.

Even the Wii U gets a look in, with two Konami Turbografx Virtual Console re-releases – Final Soldier (£6.29) and Soldier Blade (£5.39). Final Soldier is the better of two, if memory serves.

Those four Switch releases are the Tetris alike ACA NeoGeo Puzzled (£6.29), mobile conversion Piczle Lines DX (£13.99), the well-received 2D intergalactic adventure forma.8 (£8.99), and the eight episode strong Minecraft: Story Mode – The Complete Adventure (£39.99).

On a related note, the Wii U version of forma.8 is permanently down to £8.99 from today, presumably to put it in line with the Switch iteration.

ARMS’ Global Testpunch is also back until 27th August, while a demo of Pokkén Tournament DX is now live ahead of its 22nd September launch.

The last Switch happening is a temporary discount on Astro Duel Deluxe. The hyperactive shooter is down to £7.55 until 27th August.

On 3DS, Pokémon Red, Blue and Yellow are down to £5.75 with linked Nintendo Account (£7.19 without).

SEGA’s 3D Mega Drive remasters are down in price too. The likes of 3D Gunstar Heroes, 3D Streets of Rage 2, 3D Out Run and 3D Space Harrier are down to £2.02 a piece, while 3D Ecco the Dolphin will set you back a mere £1.84. Nobody likes Ecco the Dolphin.

Loads of Rising Star games are also due a price drop, including BIT.TRIP Saga (£4.49), Harvest Moon: The Tale of Two Towns (£8.99), Hometown Story (£7.49) and Virtue’s Last Reward (£9.99). Rising Star’s PONCHO on Wii U is down to £3.99 meanwhile.

Next week: Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, Astro Bears Party and Culdcept Revolt.
