Save on hundreds of Nintendo Switch games in the Nintendo eShop February Fest sale.

Yesterday’s Nintendo Direct was packed to the rafters with exciting games coming to Switch this year. We’re eager to play a significant number of them, but it’s also a reminder of our backlog. And that backlog is only getting longer following the launch of a new Nintendo eShop mega sale.

The February Fest promotion features savings on over 1000 games, many of which are shovelware, but many of which are excellent. Rare discounts are available on several first-party games, including Luigi’s Mansion 3, Paper Mario: The Origami King, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, Splatoon 2, and Xenoblade Chronicles 2.

Third-party hits include Assassin’s Creed: The Rebel Collection, Octopath Traveler, The Outer Worlds, and Life is Strange: True Colors.

As ever, some of the most inventive and groundbreaking games are from indie studios. Our recommendations include the sublime Disco Elysium, BoomerangX, The Longing, and Cozy Grove.

The February Fest sale is now live in Europe and runs until February 20, 2022. There are too many sale titles to list them all, but here are some more favourites.
