The holidays at the end of the year mean more time to play those games on your to-do list, so it’s especially good that there are currently several sales going on at Nintendo’s eShop.
You should check out the eShop to see all the numerous discounts. Among them are sales from Ubisoft, Capcom, EA and Bandai Namco – so everything is really happening. Below you will find six discount games worth your time this holiday season.
Released in September, Hades was at the top of several lists of the year, scoring 9 out of 10 on GameSpot, our sister site. All this makes it especially exciting that Hades has a 20% discount on Nintendo’s eShop until January 2.
Another indie darling for your holidays. Originally released in 2017, Cuphead has made 2D hot again. Inspired by 1930s cartoons, this side slider is incredibly charming – and surprisingly heavy. The discount is 30% until January 2.
Star Party / EA
One of the big problems with this generation of games is that there was no new burnout title. These were some of the best runners on the PlayStation 2, and Burnout Paradise was fantastic on the Xbox 360 and PS3. It’s now on the Switch, and the price is $ 25.
Unravel Two is a wonderful platform that sees you taking control of a little yarn … stuff. It is a continuation of the original Unravel, adding an element of cooperative play. Luckily, you can still play the game on your own – something you’ll want to do while Unravel Two sells for just $ 5.
South Park: Stick of Truth was originally released in 2014, but it is still one of the strongest licensed games you can buy. Developed by Obsidian Entertainment, the gang behind Fallout New Vegas and The Outer Worlds, this South Park game takes on RPG and fantasy tropes. It’s funny (if you love South Park, an important disclaimer) and is $ 12 until August 30th.
Big discount on a great game. Dragon Ball FighterZ is one of the best fighting games on Switch. It was launched in 2018 by acclaim and has since been upgraded with new characters and stages. A whopping $ 50 by December 31st.
