Prime Day is an event that usually occurs once every year during the summer. Those with an Amazon Prime account can access several great deals on select electronics, appliances, and clothes. However, there are also several significant video game sales. Usually, there aren’t that many remarkable gaming discounts. That being said, for Prime Day 2023, a few excellent games are available for a reasonable price. Here’s an overview of some of the best gaming discounts on Prime Day 2023.
Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope
Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope is available on Amazon Prime for $19.99. Sparks of Hope is a real-time-strategy game inspired by the XCOM franchise. It features characters from both the Mario franchise and Ubisoft’s Rabbids franchise. The game was first released in October 2022, alongside the reveal of more DLC content. A demo is currently available on the Nintendo Switch, and later this year, a story bundle featuring the beloved character Rayman will be available. If you’re a fan of the Mario and Rabbids franchises and want a fun strategy game, Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope is the game for you.
Octopath Traveler II
Octopath Traveler II is available on Amazon Prime for $39.99. A follow-up to the beloved HD-2D JRPG, Octopath Traveler II, was released earlier this year. The game features several playable characters, a day/night cycle, and new mechanics like the break/boost and latent power system. Octopath Traveler II is the perfect game for a fun JRPG with a unique art style and incredible characters. The game is available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, and PlayStation 4.
Crisis Core Reunion
Crisis Core Reunion is available on Amazon Prime for $34.99. The game is a remastered version of the 2007 Final Fantasy VII spin-off, Crisis Core. It focuses on the story of Zack Fair, a mysterious character established in Final Fantasy VII, and the backstories of both Cloud and Sephiroth. The remastered is the perfect way to play the cult classic JRPG, and if you’re willing to pay $34.99, now’s the best time to purchase it. Crisis Core Reunion is available on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
Elden Ring is available on Xbox Series X|S and PS4 for $39.99 and $54.86 on PlayStation 5. It is another groundbreaking game from the minds of From Software. The 2022 Game of the Year winner features a massive open world, beautiful sceneries, captivating characters, and nightmarish difficulty. If you’ve never played a From Software game and want to see what all the fuss is about, definitely give Elden Ring a try. The game is available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
Nier Automata: End of the YoRHa Edition
Nier Automata: End of the YoRHa Edition is available on the Nintendo Switch for $29.99. The beloved action RPG was initially released in 2017. In 2022, a Switch port was released that featured several new costumes for all playable characters. I highly recommend this discount to those who’ve never played Nier Automata and own a Nintendo Switch. The game is also available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Several Select PlayStation 5 Games
Several select PlayStation 5 games are available on Amazon Prime for incredibly low prices. Spider-Man: Miles Morales is priced at $39.99. God of War: Ragnarok is available for $49.99. Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart is even available for a low sum of $29.99. Those are just a few discounts available for the PlayStation 5. For more, check out the entire store page here. These games are some of the best on the market, let alone the PlayStation 5. I highly recommend purchasing just a few of these, especially before the release of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 later this year.
Select Mario Games
Lastly, a select few Mario games are available on Amazon Prime for $29.99. These include Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Mario Golf: Super Rush, New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, and Super Mario Odyssey. All of these games are some of the best on the Nintendo Switch. Nintendo rarely discounts, so if you want to experience the best of the Mario franchise before Super Mario Bros. Wonder and Super Mario RPG later this year, be sure to check out the games here.
Those are just a few of the best video game deals available during Prime Day 2023. The sale will last from July 11-12, so be sure to grab these discounts while you still can. Be sure to keep an eye out for more gaming discounts later in the Summer and Fall.
