Don’t miss these rare Nintendo Switch eShop discounts

Save on Nintendo Switch games staring Super Mario for a limited time.

Save on some great Nintendo Switch games staring Super Mario for a limited time.

It’s not often that we see big discounts on first-party Switch games, but Nintendo is making an exception this week – in honour of Mario Day – with a 33% price cut on selected titles in North America.

Unfortunately, you won’t find any savings on Super Mario Odyssey, Super Mario 3D All-Stars, or Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury. But don’t despair.


First up is Mario Tennis Aces. It’s a fun sporting excursion for Mario, and although it doesn’t match the best games in the series, it’s brilliant fun with friends. The same applies to Super Mario Party, which is a return to form for the variable board game franchise.

We have no qualms in recommending the final two games on sale. Super Mario Maker 2 serves up a smorgasbord of user-generated treats, but it’s also home to an excellent single-player campaign and an elegantly designed game-creation toolkit.

Finally, Luigi’s Mansion 3 is a pleasure from start to finish and is comfortably the best game in the spooky spin-off series. It’s no surprise that Nintendo acquired developer Next Level Games earlier this year.

All four games are on sale via the Nintendo eShop until 11:59 pm on March 13, 2021.
