Nintendo's having a bit of a local-multiplayer-themed eShop sale on Switch

Captain Toad! Tropical Freeze! Windjammers! More!

If you're a Switch owner with access to at least one friend, family member, or even an unusually accommodating stranger, then Nintendo UK's latest eShop discount bonanza, the (mostly) local-multiplayer-themed Play Together Sale, might be of interest to you.

As usual, Nintendo itself isn't exactly going wild when it comes to discounted first-party offerings, but the two games included in the sale are good 'uns, with the sublime Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze reduced to 33.49 (from 49.99) and Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker at 24.49 rather than the usual 34.99.

Elsewhere, you can get your loot on with Diablo 3: Eternal Edition (34.99 down from 49.99), whip yourself into a frenzy of blob/block matching in Puyo Puyo Tetris (20.99 instead of 34.99) or conquer the world in Civilization 6 (35.99 down from 44.99).

Capcom's all over the sale too, and you'll find discounts on Resident Evil Revelations 1 & 2 (now 9.59 and 11.99 respectively), Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection (31.49 from 44.99), Ultra Street Fighter 2 The Final Challengers (17.49 from 34.99) the Capcom Beat 'Em Up Bundle (12.79 instead of the usual 15.99), Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate (34.99 from 49.99), plus all four Mega Man Collections and Mega Man 11 at various prices.

Moving away from the big publishers, there's a decently broad selection of indie pickings to be found. Sundered: Eldritch Edition (a wonderfully tense Lovecraftian Metroidvania) is, for instance, 10.84 down from 15.49, Guacamelee 2 and TowerFall are 12.59 from 17.99, and Crypt of the NecroDancer is 3.59 from 17.99. Co-operative wizard-'em-up Nine Parchments is 5.39 from 17.99, Portal-esque co-op puzzler Death Squared is 8.39 from 11.99, and frisbee-tossing retro classic Windjammers is 9.44, down from 13.49.

Discount lovers can check out a slightly more comprehensive list of games included as part of the Play Together Sale over on Nintendo's website. However, it currently seems a little incomplete, so it might be preferable to fire up the Switch eShop and have a browse yourself.
