Unlike the digital stores on PS4 and Xbox One, the Nintendo Switch Eshop doesn’t offer a regular weekly sale. Deals on Switch games come and go at the whims of the publishers on Nintendo’s digital storefront. Nevertheless, at any given time you can usually find a nice selection of discounts, so we try to check in each week to see what’s worth buying. Here are some of the highlights of the Switch and 3DS game deals available now. The discounts’ end dates vary, so if you see a game you want, it’s best to grab it soon.
If life is feeling hectic, you can get a dose of rural simplicity in Farming Simulator, on sale for $30. On the other hand, to add a sense of urgency to your gaming time, you can try Minit, an RPG you try to speed through in 60-second intervals. Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime is a couch co-op shooter that takes place in a large space ship; it’s on sale for $9. And for $10.50, you can download Road to Ballhalla, a rhythm-based ball-rolling game.
As for Nintendo 3DS Eshop deals, you can save lots of cash on the Ace Attorney series between now and October 10. All of the games–Apollo Justice, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy, Dual Destinies, and Spirit of Justice–are on sale for under $12 apiece. You’ll find the details in the list below.
And finally, this deal isn’t in the Eshop sale, but it’s one Switch owners might be interested in anyway: you can get a physical copy of Octopath Traveler for $48 from Newegg if you enter promo code EMCEPPT63 at checkout.
