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 RPGWest 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.

    Octopath Traveller is not on sale on the european eshop. Please actually check and confirm this kind of stuff before writing up and article. Just spent twenty minutes setting up a new email address and then a new eshop account only to learn that it’s still 60 euros… it sucked.

    Hi Reed, sorry to hear. The information sent to us from Nintendo states: Octopath Traveler €35.99 / £29.99 / CHF 46.70 until 10/01/2019. We’ll look into it.

    Update: The game is hitting the sale today, a day later than the others. Odd, but your efforts were not in vain, thankfully!
