Save on games from the SteamWorld and Yooka-Laylee franchises with this week’s batch of Nintendo Switch eShop discounts.

There aren’t any big promotions running this week, but we’ve scoured the Nintendo eShop’s digital store shelves to bring you some worthwhile Switch bargains.

There are some great games on offer in Europe and North America, starting with discounts on every game in Image & Form’s SteamWorld franchise. SteamWorld Dig 2 remains our favourite, but Heist and Quest also offer top-class gameplay delivered with wit and personality.

We aren’t the biggest fans of Playtonic’s first Yooka-Laylee game – it’s a little too old school for our taste – but it’s certainly worth picking up with a discount. The Donkey Kong Country-inspired Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair is also on offer and is a much more polished experience. You can download a free demo if you want to try before you buy, too.

50% discounts on Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom on Killer Queen Black are also welcome, as is a whopping 90% discount on the inventive Serial Cleaner.

Over Switch hits to check out include Ghost Town’s marvellous multiplayer party-game, Overcooked!, PixelJunk Monsters 2, and Blasphemous. And if you’re looking for something new to play, Foam Sword’s charming tale of childhood hijinks, Knights and Bikes, is available with a 10% pre-release price cut.

Here are some more recommendations. Visit the Nintendo eShop in your region for the full roster of sale titles.

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.
