Now Playing: Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment - Nintendo Switch

Each week the Nintendo Eshop gets a new set of deals on digital Nintendo Switch games. The discounts end at varying times, so if you see something you want, it's best to pick it up sooner rather than later. This past week didn't offer a way to save money on any big first-party titles, but some fine third-party and indie games are on sale. Here are the best Switch deals available on the Nintendo Eshop right now.

One of the biggest discounted games is Shovel Knight. If you only want a taste of this retro-style platformer, you can grab Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment for $8 (down from $10). It only contains the Specter Knight's campaign, though, so you'll miss out on campaigns for Shovel Knight, Plague Knight, and eventually King Knight, once that releases later this year. To get the full game, you'll need to buy Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove, which is on sale for $20 (regularly $25).

Another big indie that's currently available for a discount is the roguelike RPG Darkest Dungeon. It's also $5 off, bringing it down to $20. This challenging turn-based game is drenched in gloom--which is a perfect tone for a quest that pushes your party to (or past) the brink of insanity.

On a brighter note, you can grab the new action-puzzle game Bomb Chicken for $9, or the relaxing Farming Simulator for $30. And if you're into party games, you can pick up The Jackbox Party Pack 4 for $15 or pre-order Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes, which releases August 16 and is on sale for $13.50. There's also an open beta going on for Dragon Ball FighterZ between now and August 11.
