Nintendo Switch games tend to go on sale on the Eshop on Thursdays. This week’s set of deals is now live, meaning you can save cash on a number of excellent Switch games. But because it’s not a regular weekly sale like you see on Xbox One or PS4, the games go back to regular price on different dates. So if you see something you want, it’s best to grab it sooner than later. Here are some of the best Eshop deals you can find this week.
In terms of big-name games, you can save $10 on the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, bringing it down to $30. Sonic Forces also got a nice discount; it’s on sale for $24. Big games are nice, but the bulk of the sale is made up of smaller games, many of which were developed by independent studios.
Hello Neighbor is a stealth game that has you creeping through your neighbor’s house to discover what secrets he’s hiding. Problem is, your neighbor doesn’t appreciate people breaking into his home, so he sets up traps and chases you around. It’s on sale for $32, down from $40.
Discounted to $12 is Mr. Shifty, a fast-paced top-down action game that puts you in control of a melee fighter who can teleport short distances. You’ll make good use of this power as you face off against hundreds of gun-toting enemies on your way to the top of a skyscraper.
Drawful 2 is on sale for $8. It’s a party game that gives one person silly things to draw (like “bromance” or “a pitcher of nachos”), while everyone else has to try to guess what the drawing is. The boxing tycoon management game Punch Club is discounted for $12 as well.
