Ubisoft is doing a little “spring cleaning” with its Nintendo eShop titles on both the Wii U and the Nintendo 3DS. For one week only you can download titles like Rayman Legends, Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag and Zombi U for 50% off. Ubisoft’s entire Nintendo 3DS catalogue is also on offer at 50% off, so if you’ve been holding off on picking up any of their titles, now is the perfect time to do so.

Over 20 games are half off until March 31st, so be sure and check out the full list of titles on sale here. This offer is available in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Brazil.

Thanks to everyone who sent this in!

  • I hope they’ll add Europe as I could imagine sailing the seven seas quite soon …
    And I’ve just been thinking about getting Rayman, so this would be the perfect reason to follow my guts.

    So no Nintendo direct this month as well?

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      Well, it’s the end of the month and no announcement. Looks to be that way.

    • Zuxs13

      Probably nothing till mid-end of April, like last year, and then Nothing till E3 except the end of quarter report May.

      • At least we can expect some ND before Mario Kart 8 launches.

    • matthew garcia

      I guess nintendo has nothing show right now. Game drought maaaan

      • Dark-Link73

        Thank you! Somebody else sees the reality of the situation.

    • That guy who hates Spike

      Maybe that strategy just isn’t working for them, and they are changing things up.
      After all, it looks like they also cancelled Iwata Asks, since they skipped big name games like Kirby Triple Deluxe, Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze and Yoshi’s New Island.

  • matthew garcia

    Good cuz wii u needs all the help It can get. 3ds is fine though

  • Vriska Serket

    This is hardly a “sale”. It’s off the original msrp of the game, so even when it’s cut in half (some of them are not half, 8y the way. Most of the good ones.) it still costs way more than you can find them at other stores with no sale.

    • Angelo G

      Yes! i can get most if not all these games way cheaper at Gamestop.

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        Most of these I can find at Walmart or even BestBuy for cheap.

      • matthew garcia

        It’s wierd cuz I was gonna trade in games so I can buy infamous 2nd son and I went to gamestop. They were gonna only give me 20 dollars for assassins creed black flag ps4. I just found out best buy took trade ins and they gave me 40bucks. Way more acceptable

        • The Clockwork Being

          Yep Gamestop does rip you off sometimes.

    • Ryan F

      Rayman Legends for $28 is quite the deal though! Hard to find a new hard copy selling that low.

    • ChrisCamp

      I very nearly bought AC: Black Flag last night when I saw this but then checked amazon was selling the game for $25 on Prime! It’s too bad, I much rather own this game digitally rather than have another disc to clutter up the living space.

    • Fred

      Rayman Legends is a great deal!!! and that’s an incredible game!!!

    • MerryBlind .

      Exactly what I thought. ZombiU is like 15$ at FutureShop/BestBuy, and yet it’s on ‘sale’ at 30$ on the eShop…. yay! Not the type of game I’d get digitally anyway.

      • Ultrasyd

        eShop prices are non-sense o_O

    • Noah Hood

      There is a difference between “50% off” and “UP to 50% off.” Rayman Legends is not 50% off. Black Flag is not 50% off.

      • Vriska Serket

        According to Ashley King , “over 20 games are half off until march 31”
        This is what I am referring to.
        Also “ray man legends, black flag and zombiu are 50% off”

    • gamingpalooza

      nothings good enough… i see that a lot from people on the internet these days. expecting to get everything for free.

  • Zuxs13

    Im going to get my Just Dance grove on

  • Dark-Link73

    The only Ubisoft title I want by now is Watch_Dogs. No chance that game will be part of it, right? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • MerryBlind .

      Look up the prices at your local stores though! you can get most of those titles for cheaper or at least for the same price as the sale… unless you buy all your games on the eShop that is.

      • Dark-Link73

        I buy both depending on the price. Unless is a day one must-buy then I’ll go full price. I’ll check around ad you said but I don’t do used games anymore, I want my money to go Nintendo, not GameStop alone. As for Amazon, I just got FIFA 13 new for only $10 but the problem with Amazon is that we need a $35 purchase for free shipping so if I’m only buying the game, after the S&H, the eShop offer might be better.

        Btw, no, I don’t have Prime. It’s not worth it to me.

        • MerryBlind .

          Fine then. I wasn’t talking about Used games btw, even new, prices of Wii U games are better in store than on the eShop.

          • Dark-Link73

            Ok, this is what I’ve found so far online (I haven’t checked local stores yet):

            Amazon: $7.00 + tax + $5 S&H unless you have Prime or shop for a total of $35 for free shipping.
            GameStop: $20 new or $7 used plus tax and shipping.
            Walmart: $10 plus tax and shipping unless spend $50 total purchase for free shipping. (i hate shopping here so this is not an option for me)
            eShop: $15 total tax included.

            I’ll go into my local GameStop later just in case the price might be cheaper there (it happens sometimes). Looks like it’s either Amazon (if i decide to spend $35 or more total) or eShop for me. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • DJKeens

    Would’ve bought blacklist but sadly no.

  • Goku123

    Aren’t most of them cheaper on Amazon anyways

    • sure they are, but for once the eshop’s pricing becomes somehow reasonable. at least for 1 week.

      • Goku123

        True =)

  • Razo_E

    Hmm, I might sell my physical copy of zomibU and pick up the digital version so I have less boxes laying around.

    • K_Locker

      That’s an interesting idea, I might do that for Rayman and Blacklist if the sale comes to Oz. Anyone know if my saved games will be preserved?

  • thedeciderU

    spring cleaning or trying to make the most money they can before they pull wiiu support altogether? trying not to be negative, but nintendo is sucking right now.

  • Miguel Angel Barrueta Hernรกnde

    im going in for rayman legends

  • TrueWiiMaster

    I might get Cloudberry Kingdom on the Wii U, but that’s probably it. I would get Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars and Rayman 3D, but I’m not going to pay more for a digital copy than I would for a hard copy. These prices should be their regular prices, and they should be on sale for $7-10.

  • MetroidZero

    I got ZombiU for $12 on eBay, months ago.

  • Carlos Webster

    Maybe Ubisoft DOES still support the Wii U after all

  • janco tianno

    In my case, it’s not bad at all, since I can’t find Rayman Legends and Rabbids Land in my country for less than 40US$….
    But AC4 is around 47US$ here… not a big deal…(42US$ on Eshop…)

    Since AC3 is 19,99, AC4 could be 29,99… Anyway, it will be useful to get 1 or 2 games.

    I just hope they are NOT using this to measure the success of digital sales. It would be sad to read “Well, we won’t release more digital games because even with AMAAAAZING discounts it doesn’t sell on Wii U”

  • Jared Garcia

    I think this is the last test to see if support is worth it. I’ve seen on the charts Darksiders 2 as number 10. Perhaps AC4 needs to be a little lower to really entice those hesitant consumers.

  • leo

    The final good bye from ubi

  • Madmagican

    Just realized Ubisoft’s 3DS support is some shit…

  • janco tianno

    Well, who knows ? Maybe if they are just making some extra money to finish Watch Dogs ๐Ÿ˜€ Let’s think positive.

  • Rinslowe


  • Shootdatrupee!…

    Wait WHAT?
    No Australia?

  • NyallJodhan

    Picked up Rayman and Zombie U last night. Left them downloading at home. Also got Pure Chess and Dr. Luigi. Still didn’t get Unepic yet. Can’t decide between that and Gianna Sisters as yet. Any advice?

  • Blue Hernandez

    Rayman Legends, Rabbids Land, and Cloudberry Kingdom are what I’ll be getting. Splinter Cell: Blacklist would’ve been sweet but you can already get it for like $17 on Amazon.
