Some of the best games on Nintendo Switch are discounted for just a few more days in the eShop New Year sale.
Here’s a quick reminder that the Nintendo eShop New Year sale in Europe ends on January 10, 2021. It’s a great opportunity to pick up some of the system’s best games at a low(ish) prices.
Highlights include The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. And if you have finished the Zelda spin-off Age of Calamity, the original Hyrule Warriors is also recommended.
Sticking with the Zelda theme, Ubisoft’s enjoyable Breath of the Wild imitation/homage, Immortals Fenyx Rising, is worth a look for those seeking open-world adventures. Other third-party hits to get discounts include Mortal Kombat XI and the so-so port of Obsidian’s acclaimed sci-fi RPG, The Outer Worlds.
It’s also an excellent sale if you want to revisit some highlights from the Xbox 360/PS3 generation. Bioshock: The Collection, Burnout Paradise Remastered, Skyrim, and L.A. Noire all have quality Switch ports.
Visit the Nintendo Switch eShop in your country for the full range of discounts and included games. Here are some more notable titles.

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. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
