Now Playing: Binding Of Isaac Afterbirth Plus Nintendo Switch Gameplay

There's no better time to be a Nintendo Switch owner, because not only is the console a gateway to a library of excellent first-party titles, but the list of killer indies on the Eshop grows by the week. Better yet, those games tend to go on sale often. This week's Nintendo Switch Eshop sale features a fantastic selection of mostly indie games for cheap. Let's take a look.

At $20, the beloved--and exceedingly dark--roguelike game The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ is half off this week. In it, you play as a boy whose mom goes nuts, so he retreats to the cellar, which is filled with monsters he has to fight using his tears. Yeah, it's grim.

The Metroid-style game Cave Story+ is on sale for $15. If you think you have the reflexes to handle a bullet-hell shooter, Ikaruga is always a good choice, especially on sale for $10. For a game in the vein of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, you can pick up Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas, also $10.

Velocity 2X is an excellent sci-fi game that's all about speed and collectibles; it's on sale for $16. And the gravity-manipulating game VVVVVV might not look like much thanks to its Atari-era graphics, but it's a lot of fun to play if you're into tricky precision platforming.

A number of other Switch, Nintendo 3DS, and Wii U games are on sale on the Eshop this week as well. You can find the full list here.
