Nintendo Selects (formerly Player's Choice) is a collection of video games released on Nintendo consoles that have sold well and have been re-released at a cheaper price than they were at full retail.


In the United States and Europe, Nintendo introduced the label in 1996 as Player's Choice for both the Super Nintendo Entertainment System and the Game Boy to distinguish titles that have sold over one million copies.

The Player's Choice line was introduced for Nintendo GameCube titles in January 2003. The first titles were Super Smash Bros. Melee, Pikmin, and Luigi's Mansion, and they each retailed for $29.99. Later in the year, when 6 new titles were added, Nintendo split the pricing for different sets of GCN games, so that some titles would enter in or stay at U.S.$29.99 while others would be reduced immediately to U.S.$19.99.

In April 2006, the Player's Choice was applied to Game Boy Advance games and, in the United States, sell for $19.99.

The Player's Choice label was then rebranded Nintendo Selects on May 15, 2011. The first Wii games added were The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Animal Crossing: City Folk, Mario Super Sluggers and Wii Sports.
