Are you looking for something new to play on Nintendo Switch this weekend? Here’s news of some new eShop video game discounts.
This week’s crop of Nintendo Switch digital discounts in Europe includes a range of classic indie games published by Nicalis.
We’ll never stop recommending Terry Cavanagh’s masterful platformer VVVVVV, even if he is a little sheepish about its qualities these days. Likewise, Daisuke Amaya’s timeless Metroid-style adventure game, Cave Story+. Classic shmup Ikaruga also comes highly recommended, particularly as it can be played on Switch in Tate Mode.
Other discounted games include sports sim Football Manager 2020, futuristic stunt racer FutureGrind, and no less than five titles from the Jackbox Party series.
We’ll also highlight Super Life of Pixel. It’s a simple and charming platform game that takes players on a trip through various console generations. Originally released on Wii U, the Switch version includes six new vintage consoles. It’s a neat idea, delightfully executed.
Here are some more sale recommendations. Visit the Nintendo eShop in your country for the full lineup of discounted games.
