Some of the best games on Nintendo Switch are discounted in the eShop New Year sale.
If you picked up a Nintendo Switch over the holidays, the eShop New Year sale gives you a chance to buy some of the system’s best games at a low(ish) prices.
The obvious highlights are The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. If you liked the recent Age of Calamity, the first Hyrule Warriors is also worth a spin, and the comically spooky Luigi’s Mansion 3 is the best game in series to date.
Third-party recommendations include Ubisoft’s fun Zelda-homage Immortals Fenyx Rising, Mortal Kombat XI, and – with a few caveats – Obsidian’s sci-fi RPG, The Outer Worlds.
It’s also a good sale if you want to revisit some excellent ports of games from the Xbox 360/PS3 generation. Bioshock: The Collection, Burnout Paradise Remastered, Skyrim, and L.A. Noire all come recommended.
The new sale runs across Europe until January 10, 2021. Check the Nintendo eShop in your country for the full range of discounts and included games. Here are some more notable titles.
