The Nintendo Switch US Eshop Is Lowkey Having One Of Its Best Sales Ever
Add some gems to your Switch library.
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.
