The Nintendo eShop New Year is now on, and offering discounts on small selection of Switch, 3DS, and Wii U titles.
Alongside this week’s small selection of new eShop releases, Nintendo have also launched a ‘Happy New Year’ sale in Europe.
This being Nintendo, the discounts aren’t huge, and rather disappointingly there are only three Nintendo Switch titles included.
That said, if you’ve been waiting for the flawed but fun 1-2-Switch to come down to a more reasonable price point, now’s your chance. The Switch launch title is reduced to £27.99 in the UK and €34.99 in Euro-zone countries.
Also receiving discounts on Switch are the first-party fighting extravaganza Arms, and Over Fence Co’s puzzle game, Flip Wars.
There’s a wider range of titles to choose from on Wii U and 3DS – including plenty of virtual console games – but they are only available to My.Nintendo account holders.
Here are some of our recommendations. Head over to the Nintendo eShop for the full sale lineup.
- Flip Wars
- Metroid: Samus Returns
- Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS
- Pocket Card Jockey
Nintendo Wii U
- The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD
- Super Mario Maker
- Super Mario Galaxy
- Super Mario 64

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.
