Nintendo Switch eShop Blockbuster sale gets underway

Fire Emblem, Mario Odyssey and Mario Maker 2 all reduced.

After a cheeky announcement on Twitter back on Tuesday, the Nintendo Switch eShop Blockbuster sale is now live with discounts of up to 75 per cent available on a number of the console's biggest games.

Perhaps not the ones you want, though.


Starting with Nintendo's first-party releases, these are all at that very familiar 33.29 price point we've come to expect from a Switch eShop sale. Only four are included: Super Mario Maker 2, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Super Mario Odyssey and Xenoblade Chronicles 2. A decent if not spectacular discount, then.

A handful of other major Switch games have also been given middling-to-decent price cuts. I don't think anything here has fallen so far to make it an instant buy (especially considering how cheap they are now on other platforms) but something might grab you.

  • The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim for 24.99
  • Overwatch: Legendary Edition for 25.19
  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Complete Edition for 34.99
  • Diablo 3 Eternal Collection for 34.99
  • Team Sonic Racing for 24.49
  • Mortal Kombat 11 for 21.99
  • Civilization 6 for 22.49
  • Doom (2016) for 24.99

Chances are you're going to find the best offers on some of the not quite so high profile releases. Right now, there are about five pages of games to flick through so I'd encourage you to have a browse to see if anything grabs you. I've seen the Spyro Reignited Trilogy for 17.49, Puyo Puyo Tetris for 10.49 and Dead Cells for 15.49, just to give you an idea.

You can view the list of deals on the Nintendo Switch eShop Blockbuster sale or simply head to the eShop on your Switch console. All these offers will be available until 1st March.

If you're looking for Switch offers in the physical realm, you can currently get a Nintendo Switch Lite at its lowest price since Black Friday, plus there's a range of cutesy Animal Crossing Character Cushions available to order from the Nintendo Official UK Store.
