There are Switch savings aplenty with four big promotions currently running on the Nintendo eShop.
The latest crop of US Nintendo eShop offers feature some iconic video game characters, some anime superstars, and some digital versions of family-favourite board games.
The Sonic the Hedgehog sale is headlined by Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020. We don’t think it’s a very good game, to be honest, but if you have young family members going stir-crazy, it should bring calm and chaos to your home in equal measure. “Real gamerz” should check out the Sega Ages releases of Sonic the Hedgehog 1 and 2, and Sonic Mania.
Another iconic video game character on sale is Pac-Man. To celebrate the character’s 40th birthday, both Namco Museum and Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 Plus are discounted. Both games are well worth getting.
The Ubisoft Family Time Sale features one of the best games in the Switch library, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. It’s accessible, tactical, funny, and addictive. And even the Rabbids are pretty likeable.
The AniMay sale also continues, with offers on games including Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 and the wonderful Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch.
The Sonic and Ubisoft Nintendo eShop sales run until May 25. The AniMay and Pac-Man promotions lose their lives on May 26. Here are some more highlights.
