Nintendo eShop sale

Save on some of the Nintendo Switch’s oddest games in the new ‘Weird and Wonderful’ eShop sale.

The European Nintendo eShop is serving up a buffet of delicious discounts in two new sales. First up is the ‘Weird and Wonderful’ sale that highlights some of the console’s quirkiest games. That means old classics like 2D Boy’s World of Goo, the bonkers platformer, Human Fall Flat, and Adult Swim’s bonkers billiards game, Pool Panic.

There are also discounts on a couple of our personal favourites, West of Loathing, and Snake Pass.


A second sale – also running on the US – is offering savings on games published by NIS America. Both Disgaea 1 and 5 are included, as is Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana.
