This week’s crop of Nintendo Switch eShop discounts includes a terrific selection of indie hits and some big games from Ubisoft.
Pokémon Sword and Shield is grabbing all the headlines on Switch this week, but there are plenty of other games worth your attention, including some excellent discounted titles on the Nintendo eShop.
Our picks from the current lineup of European price cuts include Joakim Sandberg’s wonderful 2D action-adventure, Iconoclasts. Metroidvania fans should also check out the inventive pinball twist on the genre, Yoku’s Island Express.
If you’re looking for a game with a good story, we can vouch for Daedalic Entertainment’s cyberpunk thriller State of Mind, and the dystopian rideshare game, Neo Cab. Other highlights include This War of Mine, Moonlighter, Superhot and The Messanger.
A range of Ubisoft games are also on offer. Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is a must-buy for every Switch owner, and we also enjoyed revisiting Assassin’s Creed III, especially now it’s patched.
Here are some more recommendations. Visit the Nintendo eShop in your region for the current lineup of discounted games.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. 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 to meet those goals! 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.
