Nintendo eShop: New Year Sale takes up to 40% off Mario, Yoshi, Splatoon and more

Sale runs until 12th January.

Following on immediately from the massive Switch Christmas sale, the Nintendo eShop New Year Sale is now live until 12th January. In it, you'll find up to 40 per cent off some of the biggest Switch games such as Mario Tennis Aces, Dragon Quest 11, Overwatch and more.

In total, far fewer games are included in this one, but the emphasis is on major and first-party releases this time around. As we've come to expect from discounts on these games, though, they're not massively exciting.

Of the lot, the best deal has to be Octopath Traveller for 29.99. I have this niggling feeling that a digital copy has been around this price only once before, so here's another opportunity to get it while the "stately and compelling JRPG throwback" is reduced.


As for the rest? Well, it's the usual 30 per cent cut. That means you can get the likes of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Party and Splatoon 2 for 33.29. It's still some of the cheapest prices they've been, so worth a go if you've been waiting for a sale.

Here's the full list of offers in the Nintendo Switch eShop New Year Sale:

  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for 33.29
  • Overwatch: Legendary Edition for 25.19
  • Super Mario Party for 33.29
  • Dragon Quest 11: Echoes of an Elusive Age for 33.29
  • Yoshi's Crafted World for 33.29
  • Splatoon 2 for 33.29
  • Octopath Traveller for 29.99
  • Mario Tennis Aces for 33.29
  • Fitness Boxing for 27.99

The Nintendo Switch eShop New Year Sale ends on 12th January.

Meanwhile, you can also find a Capcom sale on the Nintendo Switch eShop until 27th January, too! Resident Evil, Mega Man and Devil May Cry are just a few of the series represented in the sale, though, again, some of the prices are less than tempting. I mean, I love Resident Evil 4, but I'm not going to pick up my 6th copy for almost 20.
