Splurge on great games in the Nintendo Switch Multiplayer Mayhem Sale



Splatoon 2 - Nintendo Switch
Nintendo / Thumbsticks

A new sale on the Nintendo Switch eShop discounts a range of games best shared with friends.

Although the discounts cap out at a maximum of 30% in the new Nintendo eShop promotion, there’s no denying the quality of the games on offer. The likes of Splatoon 2, Snipperclips, and Mario Tennis Aces need no introduction, so let’s dig a little deeper.

One of our favourite multiplayer games on Switch is Heave Ho from Le Cartel Studio. It’s a brilliant physics-based arcade game that is tricky, funny, collaborative, and competitive.


Risk of Rain 2 – the rogue-lite third-person shooter from Hopoo Games – is also impressive. It looks good, sounds even better, and performs surprisingly well on Switch.

Puzzle fans should definitely check out Lumines Remastered and Puyo Puyo Tetris 2. And if you have a larger group of people to entertain, make a beeline for The Jackbox Party Pack 7.

The Nintendo eShop Multiplayer Mayhem Sale is live now and runs through to August 11, 2021. Here’s the full lineup of sale titles.
