Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle: Rabbid Peach Character Spotlight | Gameplay Trailer | Ubisoft [US]

March is a very popular month for new video game releases, including big-name games like Devil May Cry 5 and The Division 2, but if you’re looking to save some cash on slightly older games, Walmart has plenty of great deals for you — and it doesn’t matter if you’re on Xbox, PlayStation, or  Switch.

Right now at Walmart, you can get Red Dead Redemption 2 on either Xbox One or PlayStation 4 for just $40. It’s one of the best games of 2018, with a main story that can easily take more than 50 hours to complete, and it includes access to the multiplayer portion Red Dead Online.

If you’re in the mood to play another Rockstar game, you can also pick up Grand Theft Auto V on PlayStation 4 for just $15, or on Xbox One for $18. The games feature a first-person perspective, as well as access to Grand Theft Auto Online. Despite being more than five years old, the mode is still regularly updated.

The open-world action game Just Cause 4 can also be yours on either Xbox One or PlayStation 4 for $36. Set in a massive environment filled with lightning storms and tornadoes, Just Cause 4 lets you destroy nearly anything you see with an arsenal of powerful weapons and vehicles.

The Nintendo Switch is one of the best-selling game consoles right now, and Walmart has plenty of savings on some of its biggest titles, as well. You can currently get the Super Mario Odyssey starter pack for $53 and the package includes a strategy guide. Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is on sale for $35, and the excellent Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is available from multiple sellers on Walmart’s website for under $35. The game blends the strategy and battle tactics of the XCOM series with the delightful Mushroom Kingdom, then throws in a dose of Ubisoft’s Rabbids characters to create a surreal and wacky experience.

With all those new games, you’re going to need some more controllers so your friends can join in on the fun. Walmart is also offering the Neon Red and Neon Blue Joy-Con two-pack for $69, a nice savings off its standard $79 price. The controllers can be placed in the Joy-Con Grip or they can be turned sideways and used on their own.

The best Xbox Series X games for 2023
Two Spartans side by side in Halo Infinite.

After an uneven console cycle with the Xbox One, Microsoft's latest consoles are aimed at getting the ship back on course. The Xbox Series X is a next-generation powerhouse that rivals gaming PCs, while the Xbox Series S is an affordable stopgap for those who are curious about trying new games.

There's no shortage of games to play on either console thanks to Xbox Game Pass, which gives players immediate access to a library of titles old and new. That built-in catalog is an extra value on top of all the new games available on the system that take advantage of its impressive technical specs. When it comes to first-party exclusives, the Series X is still growing. Halo Infinite and Forza Horizon 5 gave a good boost to the console's library following a somewhat sparse first year. More games are also on the way. Microsoft's Bethesda acquisition will bring exclusives like Starfield and Redfall, and the potential addition of all Activision Blizzard games would further bolster that list, but the console's real strength lies in third-party support.

You need to get this oddball Zelda game for free before the 3DS eShop closes

The day of reckoning is fast approaching: The Nintendo 3DS and Wii U eShop isclosing down on March 27. When that happens, you’ll no longer be able to make any digital purchases on those systems. Considering that several games on each platform only ever got digital releases, it’s creating a bit of a preservation nightmare. Hidden gems that never came to another platform, like Affordable Space Adventures, will be totally lost to time.

But it isn’t just obscure indies that are impacted by that change: One of Nintendo’s biggest franchises is about to lose a piece of its storied history. You’ve only got just over a week to grab a certain Legend of Zelda game before it disappears forever -- though it’s probably not one you’re expecting.

Former PlayStation 5 exclusive Ghostwire: Tokyo will launch for Xbox Series X/S and Windows PC on April 12. A free update called The Spider's Thread will release on the same day for all platforms, including Xbox Series X/S,  PC and PlayStation 5. The game is being added to Xbox Game Pass.

Ghostwire: Tokyo was first released on PS5 and PC on March 25, 2022. Despite Microsoft owning Bethesda at the time, preexisting agreements were honored and the game remained a timed console exclusive on PS5. The same situation occurred with Bethesda's Deathloop, which initially launched on PS5 and PC in September 2021 and then came to Xbox Series X/S a year later.
