Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Arms get discounts in the latest Nintendo eShop sale.

A new sale on the European Nintendo eShop discounts a small selection of first-party Nintendo Switch titles, plus a couple of beloved indie games.

The price cuts aren’t as impulsively attractive as we would like, but first-party Nintendo games are rarely on sale so it’s a good opportunity to pick up a some popular titles at a reduced price.


Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the headline act, but the slightly overlooked Arms is also worth checking out, as is Splatoon 2’s excellent Octo Expansion.

There are also Nintendo 3DS discounts for Miitopia, Fantasy Life, Super Mario 3D Land, and Mario Party: The Top 100 among many others. The sale runs for the next week.
