Want something new to play this weekend? Here’s a round-up of some of the best savings currently offered on the Nintendo Switch eShop.
This week’s sale lineup doesn’t feature any first-party Nintendo titles, but there are lots of excellent games on offer that you might have overlooked.
It’s hard to overlook Overcooked!, but if you haven’t sampled Ghost Town’s games of culinary chaos, both titles are on sale. There’s 66% sliced off the first game, and 40% carved off the second.
Bandai Namco has applied curiously specific price cuts to its sale titles. Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is reduced by 41%, and Tales of Vesperia is reduced by 49%. No half price for you!
Activision trio of remasters are also included, with decent price reductions for Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, and Spyro Reignited Trilogy.
And, to highlight some of our absolute favourites, you can’t go wrong with the stunning Superhot, Yoku’s Island Express, or Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom. We’re also fond of open-world crime drama, L.A. Noire.
Other recommendations include Drinkbox Studio’s two excellent Guacamelee games, and Shin’en’s Fast RMX and The Touryst.
Here are some more highlights taken from the European Nintendo eShop. Check your regional store for the full lineup of discounted games.

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.
