An extra 350 games for the Nintendo Switch, 3DS, and Wii U are added to the eShop festive sale.
Following on from last week’s festive sale launch, the seasonal discounts continue with some all new games getting price cuts on the European Nintendo eShop.
Our picks include Colossal Order’s excellent city-building simulation, Cities: Skylines, Villa Gorilla’s inventive pinball platformer, Yoku’s Island Express, and the acclaimed Switch-exclusive JRPG, Octopath Traveler.
There’s also chance to play this year’s second-best wild west game: Asymmetric’s hilarious comedy RPG, West of Loathing.
Again, there are no first-party Nintendo games included in the sale, but Ubisoft’s Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, and Starlink: Battle for Atlas come pretty close.
Here are some recommendations from the new glut of sale titles. Check the Nintendo eShop in your country for the complete lineup.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. But it's hard to do that in the current financial climate. If you'd like to help us fund these aims, you could always buy the team a cup of coffee.
