Best Nintendo Switch Eshop Games On Sale Now In The US
You might need a bigger memory card.
A huge sale is currently going down on the Nintendo Switch eShop, which means you can buy games big and small at substantial discounts. It even has a big first-party Nintendo game on sale--and Nintendo games are notorious for keeping their value well past their release dates. So let's dive in and see which discounted games are worth adding to your collection.
The big Nintendo game that's currently on sale is Arms, which is available for $42 instead of its typical price of $60. This game asks what would happen if every character in a fighting game had springs for arms that could stretch across great distances. The answer is: a lot of quirky combat. Read our Arms review for a full rundown of the game. And act fast if you want it, because it goes back up to normal price Friday, April 6.
Another highlight is the SteamWorld franchise sale. On Switch, you can buy SteamWorld Dig for $5, and SteamWorld Dig 2 and SteamWorld Heist: Ultimate Edition for $15 (that's $5 off their normal prices). The Metroid-style SteamWorld Dig 2 is probably the best of the bunch, but the turn-based SteamWorld Heist is also highly esteemed. The 3DS and Wii U versions are discounted as well.
Other notable price drops include Rockstar's detective game L.A. Noire for $37 instead of $50 and the "soccer with cars" game Rocket League for $15, down from $20. The music game--or, as the developer calls it, "rhythm violence" game--Thumper is down to $12 instead of its usual $20.
Another Metroid-style game called Xeodrifter is half off at $5. The rhythm-roguelike Crypt of the NecroDancer also sheds a fiver to land at $15, while the Zelda-inspired game Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King gets a slight price drop to $12.74 instead of $15.
Those are the highlights of the Switch eShop sale, but you can find loads more games at discounted prices. You can see the full list here. And if you own other systems, be sure to check out the best games in the Xbox One Spring Sale and highlights from this week's PlayStation 4 discounts.
