Splatoon 2, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and Arms are discounted in the Nintendo Switch Play Online sale.
We’ve been writing about the Nintendo Switch eShop quite a bit recently. We have our weekly eShop release updates (check back every Monday for those), and over the past two weeks there has been a torrent of news regarding upcoming indie games heading to Nintendo’s hybrid console.
And so it continues…
With just a few weeks to go until the full launch of the Nintendo Switch Online, the eShop is getting a brand new sale in Europe promoting games that can be played online.
It’s not a particularly big sale, but first-party Nintendo titles rarely get discounts so it’s a good opportunity to pick up the likes of Arms or Splatoon 2 for a cheaper price.
The all-conquering Rocket League is also discounted – along with a swathe of DLC packs – and so is the popular Human: Fall Flat, which now supports online multiplayer for up to eight players.
The sale is live on the European Nintendo Switch eShop until September 6, 2018. Here’s the, erm, complete list of included games.
Nintendo eShop Play Online Sale
- Chess Ultra
- FIFA 18
- Human: Fall Flat
- Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
- Rocket League
- Splatoon 2
- Splatoon 2 + Octo Expansion DLC
Meanwhile, the US eShop is running a short promotion on the Mega Man Legacy Collection. Both volumes are reduced by 25% until September 5, 2018.
