A new Nintendo eShop sale to accompany The Game Awards discounts an excellent batch of current and previously nominated Switch games.
The sale – which is running on the US eShop – isn’t huge, but there some brilliant games on offer. The recent port of CD Projekt Red’s The Witcher III is down to $41.99, as is Nintendo’s marquee Switch platformer, Super Mario Odyssey. Other big games to get price cuts include Doom, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Octopath Traveler.
Our personal favourites include the Crypt of the NecroDancer and its excellent Zelda-themed spin-off, Cadence of Hyrule. We also liked 2D actioner Katana Zero and Sayonara Wild Hearts.
We also recommend picking up Nomada Studio’s wonderful Gris, a game we called “minimalism and precision in motion.” The sale runs until midnight on December 18, 2019. Here’s the full list of discounted games.
