Nintendo appears to have not had a coffee yet and has accidentally sent a tweet live which points to another sale heading to the eShop. As reported by Nintendo Life, the official Nintendo of Europe accounts tweet shows a featured image indicating that the sale will feature over 700 games being discounted with up to 80% off.

The sale looks to be a festive-themed sale, as noted by the…mention of the word “Festive” in both the featured image and the tweet itself. The tweet also confirms the start date and time for the sale which looks to take place on December 19 at 15:00 CET. Upon checking the calendar and cross-referencing it with another calendar, it seems to be planned to go live this Thursday.

The original tweet was deleted shortly after going live so there’s a chance that it could resurface later today or at some point later in the week. If you want to see the evidence of the Tweet then you can head over to Nintendo Life and see it in its screencapped glory.

While the tweet came from the Europe account, the sales will no doubt be heading to other regions. There’s also the possibility that the dates are wrong and they have to re-design the featured image in a frantic frenzy — Let’s hope it isn’t that one. Either way, I’m excited to see what games are discounted during the sale, especially as that “Coming Soon” page is looking beefy.

Is there a specific game you’ve been holding off on purchasing until a sale such as this one came along? Let us know in the comments. I’m looking at something retro to enjoy those NES controllers.
