The Nintendo Switch US Eshop Is Lowkey Having One Of Its Best Sales Ever

Add some gems to your Switch library.

24 Comments

Nintendo is notorious for maintaining higher prices on its platforms than Sony or Microsoft, but Switch owners are in luck, as the console actually has a ton of great game deals available in the US Eshop right now. With new consoles hitting the market--the upgraded Switch model with better battery life and its cheaper, handheld-only cousin, the Switch Lite--there's no better time for Nintendo to showcase some of the best titles on the platform, and a few of them are must-owns at their current price.

For starters, there's a big Capcom publisher sale going on now through August 29 at 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET with up to 75% off some games. Quite a few Mega Man titles are included, such as Mega Man 11 for $20 and the Mega Man X Legacy Collections for $12 each. If you haven't played Okami HD yet, consider grabbing the remastered classic while it's only $14. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy, the acclaimed courtroom adventure series, is down to $20.

As August comes to an end, it's almost horror game season, and you can grab some true horror classics for much cheaper in the Eshop. Resident Evil games have all been marked down, so if you enjoyed the excellent Resident Evil 2 Remake released earlier this year, you can see where the series all began with Resident Evil, Resident Evil 0, and Resident Evil 4, all selling for $20 each. There's also Resident Evil Revelations, set between the events of RE4 and RE5, and its sequel, Resident Evil Revelations 2, both of which are on sale for $14.

If you haven't played Bastion or Transistor yet, you have to pick up the pair of critically acclaimed games from indie studio Supergiant. The action RPGs are on deep discount, with Bastion selling for $3 and Transistor selling for $4 in the Eshop. That's a markdown from $15 and $20, respectively.

From Mortal Kombat 11 ($42) to Guacamelee ($7.49), there are plenty more worthwhile games on sale in the Eshop, and we've included more of our favorites below. For the full list of deals, check out the Nintendo Eshop.

I just don't quite understand why other localized eShops don't follow suit.

Seriously, if I hear someone say 'Lowkey' again, i'm actually going to lose it. Where has this word come from? It's a totally superfluous word! "The Nintendo Switch US EShop is having one of its best sales ever" - that's all you have to say!

If Mortal Kombat had cross-save I would pick this up at that price.

It would be nice to take advantage of sales but the Switch storage space is super tiny even with an SD card.

@superklyph: Maybe for I but I had almost nothing installed and still had to delete stuff for that DQXI demo. Patches and stuff have to get saved too and that eats away at space as well. They didn't even give it more room than my Wii U. To add insult, in Japan they get games all on cart and in the US we have to download half the game.

The things dragging down my Switch experience is date/availability of games, price vs competition, and storage. All that means I don't get very many games for it but it would be nice to have it as a real option.

At least SD cards don't stop getting bigger/cheaper but I need that at launch with the small built-in space they offer. I'm still waiting for it.

@nikolistary:

most of those games should be the sale price regardless

i mean Devil May Cry $20!?!

Monster hunter DS port $50!?!

Capcom is crazy, this is more like "the price these games should be sale"

MK 11 stinks, specifically on the Switch (even though, it's the only platform on which you can "play" it offline).

@timothyss10: I'd also recommend Transistor, as it's my personal favorite among Supergiant's games.

@superklyph: Ridge Racer fans want it & there are plenty of us out there, cuz I hear em all the time. Mario Maker is 1-2 decades too late & I will not buy that. DK Tropical freeze I had since the Wii & still own it. I mean a REAL Mario game from scratch & something innovative like Mario Black Ops. No kidding, there is a new Yoshi game? But I won't buy a Switch just for that game, I need more meat!

@just1mohr: You comment confuses me. What about Mario Odyssey? Is DK Tropical Freeze not a new DK game, (imaybe a Wii port or something?).

I could have swore we got a new Yoshi game this year as well.

@aross2004: DK Tropical Freeze was a port of WiiU, but we’ve had new Mario in Odyssey and Maker 2 as well as Yoshis Craft World (don’t sleep on that one because it’s cutesy, it is basically a Yoshis World game if slightly easier).

I would love to see Star Fox Zero get ported to Switch as I didn’t have a WiiU by the time it came out.

New Metroid is coming down the pike soon but as for F-Zero and Ridge Racer, those are tall orders as I don’t think there’s been a new F-Zero since GameCube and Ridge Racer is not that popular of a series these days.
