These first-party games rarely go on sale.

Zelda: Skyward Sword is on sale for a limited time. 

This story is part of Amazon Prime Day, CNET's guide to everything you need to know and how to find the best deals.

Nintendo makes some of the best games for its Nintendo Switch, but the company doesn't put its games on sale often. Amazon's second Prime Day-like event gives Switch owners a chance to save some money for a limited time. 

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, Yoshi's Crafted World, New Pokemon Snap, and Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury are on sale during the two-day Prime Early Access Sale event for $40 each on either the physical copies or digital codes. That's $20 off their regular price. 

Amazon also put two Switch games bundles on sale during the event. Digital codes for Super Mario Odyssey and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe are available for $75, making each one $37.50 instead of the typical $60 apiece. Two of the newer titles for the Switch -- Splatoon 3 and Kirby and the Forgotten Land -- can be purchased together for $100, which is $20 less than buying each title individually. 

Not to be outdone, Best Buy has the same games on sale, plus Nintendo Switch Sports for the same $40 price tag, which is a $10 price cut.
