Nintendo Switch Game Sale Features Rarely Discounted Exclusives Ahead Of Summer Game Fest

Best Buy is having a huge sale on dozens of the best Nintendo Switch games.


It's the summer of gaming right now, and while Nintendo won't be at Summer Game Fest, the publisher is celebrating with a big sale. Appropriately dubbed the Mega Extreme Fun Sale, the promotion includes big discounts on digital Nintendo Switch games, most of which are exclusive to the platform. Games like Advance Wars or Animal Crossing: New Horizons seldom receive a price cut, and seeing them drop down to around $40 is a rare sight to behold.

If you purchase these deals from a major retailer such as Best Buy, you'll still get the same number of My Nintendo Gold Points as you would for buying the game at full price. As such, the extra step of buying these digital game deals from a major retailer is a good idea. You can then use those Gold Points to nab additional discounts on future purchases.

Some of the other highlights of this sale include Platinum's action-packed adventure Astral Chain, the downright adorable charm of Kirby and the Forgotten Land, and the colorful multiplayer madness of Splatoon 3.

If you're looking for fantasy, you're spoiled for choice here. Bravely Default 2 and Triangle Strategy are all solid old-school RPGs, while Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is pure bang-for-your-buck value. The expansion pass is also on sale, and you can even save some cash on bundle deals. You can also nab Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition for a great price, too.
