Now Playing: Overcooked: Special Edition - Nintendo Switch Trailer

Outside of a few individual game discounts, sales in the Nintendo Switch Eshop have been rare up to this point in the console's life. Now, Nintendo of America has kicked off the digital store's first big sale ahead of the holidays, and it includes discounts on a bunch of great Switch games.

Among the discounted titles Switch owners can find are Overcooked: Special Edition ($16), Shantae: Half-Genie Hero ($13.39), SteamWorld Dig 2 ($15), Yono and the Celestial Elephants ($12.49), The Mummy Demastered ($14), and Party Golf ($10). Other discounted games include The Jackbox Party Pack 3 ($18.74), Slime-san ($10.19), Tallowmere ($6.29), Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas ($10), Tumblestone ($9), and Unbox: Newbie's Adventure ($15).

Nintendo UK has also begun its own holiday sale in the Switch Eshop, with an even bigger selection of deals to choose from. It features many of the same titles that are currently on sale, along with a handful of other notable Switch games. Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle is £33.32, Rocket League is £11.28, Puyo Puyo Tetris is £24.49, Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove is £18, Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack is £25.19, and Just Dance 2018 is £33.32.

The UK holiday Eshop sale ends on December 28. Nintendo hasn't specified when the North American sale ends, though it will presumably be around the same time. Both regions also have a number of Wii U and 3DS Eshop games on sale right now. You can see the full list of games that are on sale in North America here, while the UK list can be found here.

Oceanhorn, The mummy, and Steamworld dig 2 are actually pretty good games. No they aren't AAA classics, but that doesn't mean they aren't good games.

@Zorlac: did someone say otherwise? Not sure what point you are getting at with your comment.

@solidsolo: Pretty sure that was the intention of the people saying these games aren't good or that nintendo paid for this article are implying that they aren't good. Not hard to understand.

The UK sale is average.. US sale is super weak.

The sales are getting bigger, still waiting for them to get better. Hopefully for next holiday.

@LeoKRock: I wouldn't expect the sales to be that great on the hottest game market 2 weeks before Christmas.

Please update and repost this article when the Nintendo Switch games that are actually great go on sale...and fair warning, we might have to wait until those games come out.

Nothing great, and nothing for me. Still have to beat Mario Odyssey. I stopped playing after beating the first 2 worlds and have no interest to return. Not sure why it was rated so high. And this is coming just after me beating playing Super Luckys Tale.

@7tizz: Mario + Rabbids, Shantae: Half Genie Hero, Steamworld Dig 2, Rocket League, and Shovel Knight are great games.

Oftentimes, these Nintendo sales are lacking, imho.
