It is that time of year when the Nintendo Switch eShop starts throwing around the holiday deals, and it looks like we are being spoiled with some massive savings over the course of the next week or two (Depending on the deal). The nice thing is that these holiday deals are not just on one eShop, either! There are deals all around the world, and we thought we could help you get started on your digital shopping.
Keep in mind, there are literally thousands of deals, so this can be a bit intimidating. Please be sure to take your time as you scroll through the games and select wisely! We don’t want you to splurge too much and create an even more unrealistic backlog.
Nintendo of America
First off, we will go over the North American eShop, which is currently boasting over 1000 games on sale. Sure, not all of these are part of the holiday deals, as there is some overlap with the Indie World sale among other random discounts.
Some highlights from here are:
- Immortals Fenyx Rising
- Donut Count
- Jump Force Deluxe Edition
- Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night
- Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch
You can check out the rest of the deals on Nintendo of America’s site here so you can take a look before jumping on to your Nintendo Switch. Like I said, there are over a thousand deals right now, so take your time.
Nintendo of Europe and UK
Over in Europe and UK, there are many of the same deals currently on the North American eShop, but it seems that there are hundreds of more games on sale on these two eShops than North America at the time, which over 1700 games currently on sale.
Some highlights from here are:
- Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle
- Overcooked 2
- Ghostbusters: The Video Game
- Rayman Legends: Definitive Edition
You can check out all the holiday deals and more at either Nintendo UK’s site here or Nintendo of Europe’s site here. With that many games on sale, it may take longer to scroll through them all than to wait for Christmas morning.
Nintendo of Japan
Finally, we arrive in Japan, the home of Nintendo, and what do you know? It looks like the Land of the Rising Sun is starting to embrace the festivities around this time of year and are boasting over 800 sales currently on their eShop. That may not be as much as either North America, UK, or Europe, but you have to remember that Christmas and the surrounding holidays are not so commonplace in Japan, although they are rising in popularity.
There are some unique sales in this eShop, so here are a couple highlights:
- Monster Hunter XX: Double Cross
- Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles
- Tiny Metal
- The Snack World: Trejarers Gold
- Billion Road
Do keep in mind that Japan rarely discounts as heavily as western areas, so don’t be too surprised to not finding as many massive holiday deals on their eShop. With that said, there are still a lot of games that are exclusive to Japan and are currently on sale now. Please take a moment to scroll through Nintendo of Japan’s deals here and see if there is anything you may enjoy.
