Several interesting games game up in the sales list you may find to be a good deal. Here we collected the five deals we’ve seen so far:

Injustice 2

Injustice 2 became a fan favorite after a popular first release, and the second addition has now been added to the lineup of discounted games at a clean 40% off. That’s great considering the game was released just under two months ago. The game features a variety of characters from across the DC universe and a host of new features not included in the first version, including new game modes and a story that continues where Injustice left off.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Special Edition

The HD version of this iconic hit classic is marketed at 58% off for both consoles, which is fantastic considering what kinds of benefits the newer version had to offer. The critically-acclaimed game was remastered for console to add improved art and effects, volumetric god rays, dynamic depth of field, screen-space reflections and so many more clean improvements to the game engine. The game feels like an entirely new experience, and for such a low price, you can’t go wrong.

Super Mario Maker

This curious little game received wildly good reviews for its adaptability and ease of use as a tool for game creators. The 3DS game creator allows players to craft their own Mario experience with a host of level design features and quirky Mario references every Mario fan ought to include in their arsenal of game titles. This creative little world creator is on sale for 20% off.

Darksiders: Warmastered Edition

This golden oldie brings back old memories of grinding endlessly just to get past a boss battle. The series never fails to bring elements of extreme difficulty while also brilliantly placing the accountability to beat the game on the player. The game received widespread acclaim for its beautiful level design, responsive controls and fantastic gameplay experiences. Today, we see the remastered title goes on sale for 26% off on the consoles.

Super Smash Bros

The hit release to the world-renown series of Smash Bros. is on sale today for 36% off on the Nintendo 3DS and the Wii U. If you really haven’t played this release in the series, now’s as good of a time as ever to give this amazing game a try, especially since it’s going for a little over $25 on the market. With two-day shipping being offered to all Prime members too, you’ll finally be able to engage in an all-out slugfest with your friends before the weekend.
