Nintendo Switch Eshop's New Sale Includes Plenty Of Great Games

Dragon Ball FighterZ, Tales of Vesperia, and more are discounted in the Nintendo Switch Eshop "AniMay" sale.


Anime Month is always in February, but the Nintendo Switch Eshop has decided to drop its anime games sale in the middle of May--seemingly for no other season than that they could call it the "AniMay sale." But hey, we're always here for punny sale names and Switch deals. The AniMay sale is also joined by an Annapurna publisher sale, which features discounts on some of the best indie games on Switch. There's a lot to love in the Eshop's new sales, so let's dive in.

The highlight of the AniMay sale is definitely Dragon Ball FighterZ, which is on sale for just $15 in the Eshop right now. The fighting game kicked off its third season this February--a brand-new fighter, Kefla, joined the roster, and more characters are coming soon as part of FighterZ Pass 3.

Numerous Naruto games are also up for grabs at 50% off, including Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy for $20. All AniMay sale prices are good until May 26 at 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET.
