There's going to be a Blockbuster Nintendo Switch eShop sale later this week

Nintendo teases up to 75% off the console's biggest games.

Nintendo has teased an upcoming Nintendo Switch eShop sale that promises up to 75 per cent off some of the console's blockbuster games.

The news came in a Tweet this morning from the Nintendo of Europe account, where it was confirmed that Super Mario Maker 2 and Fire Emblem: Three Houses would both be 33 per cent off in the Blockbuster sale.

Convenient timing for the latter, what with the Cindered Shadows DLC set for release later this week, too.

Given the name, we can likely assume that more of the console's biggest releases will feature in the upcoming promotion. The Tweet specifically mentions “critically acclaimed” games, which can probably be applied to a great majority of first-party Switch titles. When was their last bad game, seriously?

The Blockbuster Nintendo Switch sale starts on 13th February at 2pm GMT. We'll be sure to dig into everything on offer once the sale is live and highlight some of the better deals. Anything you've had your eye on that you'd like to see in particular?

Until then, some of the better Switch offers currently available include Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age - Definitive Edition for £34.99, the Nintendo Switch Animal Crossing Carry Case & Screen Protector for £19.99 and the Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening/Just Dance 2020 bundle for £54.99.

You'll also be able to find all the info on this sale and many more gaming bargains over at Jelly Deals. While there, you can check out our picks of the best Nintendo Switch SD cards, best Nintendo Switch stylus and where you can get Animal Crossing New Horizons for the best price.
