August’s crop of My Nintendo rewards includes savings on The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Animal Crossing: New Leaf.
The world has (rightly) gone crazy for Animal Crossing: New Horizons this year, but if you still have a Nintendo 3DS and haven’t played Animal Crossing: New Leaf, it’s available as one of August’s new My Nintendo discounts. We love new Horizons, but it has a long way to go to equal New Leaf‘s vast collection of content and items to collect. It might be an old game, but it’s still magical.
Other European rewards include two Zelda classics in Ocarina of Time 3D and the Game Boy Color’s Link’s Awakening DX, plus there are new 3DS themes based on Super Mario and Splatoon’s Squid Sisters.
An Animal Crossing: New Horizons Dodo Airlines Reusable Bag is also available in exchange for 400 Platinum Points, and some expensive postage.
North American discounts include a 30% saving on the mighty Rhythm Heaven Megamix, which is still one of the best music games ever created. Another highlight is a stylish 3DS theme based on the Nintendo Famicom Console.
Here’s the full rundown on August’s new rewards. We’ll likely have another update for you in a few weeks.
