Nintendo Discounts Select Indie Games If You Own Runbow

In continuing to bolster its third-party development stable through independent games, Nintendo is offering players 30% off of a select group of titles if they own or purchase Runbow from 13AM Games. The multiplayer platforming game released on Wii U in late August, and Nintendo looks to give it another push in terms of promotion through the "Friends of Runbow" sale.

During this promotion, those who have Runbow purchased on their Wii U will receive 30% off of the following titles:

Wii U

  • Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien
  • Chariot
  • Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition
  • Mutant Mudds Deluxe
  • Scram Kitty and his Buddy on Rails
  • Sportsball
  • Stealth Inc 2: A Game of Clones
  • SteamWorld Dig
  • Teslagrad
  • The Fall
  • Xeodrifter


  • Azure Striker GUNVOLT
  • Mutant Mudds
  • SteamWorld Dig
  • Xeodrifter

The promotion begins today and continues through October 22, so you have a little time to think about whether or not you want to take advantage of the promotion.


Our Take
This is a great way for Nintendo to further promote a game that I've heard some really great things about. Nintendo has been pushing for more indie-focused marketing, so this fits right in with those plans. It will be interesting to see if many Wii U and 3DS owners take advantage of this offer.
