Over 250 Switch, 3DS, and Wii U games get Nintendo eShop discounts in Europe as part of a new festive sale.
As usual with Nintendo’s promotions, discounts on first-party games are notable by their absence, but there’s a decent selection of price cuts on some big third-party titles, and a number of indie games that we can recommend.
It’s also a good sale if you’re a Capcom fan. Monster Hunter Generations, and the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection get big discounts on Switch, and a range of Resident Evil games are reduced on all three Nintendo consoles.
Other highlights include the top-notch future racer, Fast RMX, the enjoyable Zelda-like, Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King, and Brace Yourself Games’ genre-mashing roguelike, Crypt of the NecroDancer.
Here are some of our sale recommendations. Check the Nintendo eShop in your country for the full lineup.
