A new batch of Nintendo Switch, 3DS, and Wii U games get discounts on the Nintendo eShop.

Such is the volume of video game content on the Nintendo eShop – particularly on the Switch – remembering what games are available can be tricky. Thank the maker, then, for the constant churn of sales and discounts. If nothing else they remind us of the games long since lost in the torrent of new releases.

The latest clutch of European Nintendo eShop discounts features a number of indie gems on Switch, plus a collection of Capcom classics on 3DS.


Highlights include the Playtonic’s homage to classic Nintendo 64 platformers, Yooka-Laylee, and Micröid’s ambitious racing game, Gear.Club Unlimited. Fans of classic British computer games like Head over Heels should also check out the underrated puzzle adventure, Lumo.

The majority of the discounts run until October 25, 2018, but check the eShop in your country for full details. Here are some more recommendations.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. 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 to meet those goals! 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.
