Today’s Dealmaster is headlined by a variety of discounts on Nintendo Switch games, as Nintendo has joined Sony and Microsoft in offering its own sweeping summer sale. Deals are available at Nintendo’s own eShop and third-party retailers like Amazon, and Nintendo says they’ll last through June 16.
Not every discount here marks an all-time low, and in general Switch games tend to run pricey—sometimes to the point of parody—especially with ports of games released on other platforms. But discounts on first-party Switch games are still uncommon, and the deals we’ve highlighted below are all a good ways below their usual going rates online. Buying digital also means not having to deal with the shipping delays many retailers have faced lately.
Some standouts here include a handful of major Nintendo-made games for $42, such as Super Mario Party, the latest in Nintendo’s long-running digital board game/friend trolling series, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, a gorgeous 2D platformer and one of our favorite couch co-op games, and New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, an updated version of a classic Mario platformer we heartily recommended.
