Nintendo eShop Festive Offers

Nintendo’s eShop Christmas sale includes a sackful of games for the Nintendo Switch, 3DS, and Wii U.

Nintendo of Europe has rolled out an impressive two-week ‘Festive Sale’ across all three console platforms. The sale reduces the price of over 270 games, and although a large number of them are 3DS and Wii U titles, there’s a reasonable selection of Nintendo Switch discounts.

The sale runs until December 28, 2017 for most titles, although some are discounted into the new year. Nintendo also promises that additional games will be added to the sale in the next week. At the time of writing there are no first-party Nintendo releases on the list. Boo hiss!

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.
