[Switch] Nintendo eStore Sale - Zelda BOTW $62.95 (Was $89.95), Mario $53.30 (Was $79.95), Skyrim $39.95 (Was $79.95) & More

1750

As expected, the Nintendo eStore has just gone live with a bunch of deals. I'll update the full list shortly but for now:

I think I've captured all the 'big deals' for now (it's time for bed, after all) but there are many more now available on the estore. Some of these games are now cheaper than physical, and others are just equal to the equivalent best price for physical.

    Oh, yay. This makes digital prices about the same as everyday physical prices. I can barely contain my excitement..

      I prefer digital because they cant get lost or stolen and there is no need to be swapping sd cards

        And game sharing

        And resell value.

        Be VERY careful buying digitally from Nintendo or Sony (Steam and Microsoft seem more reasonable). I've had bad experiences with both companies and now only buy physical media from them apart from indie titles. Sony's PS+ auto renew got me and they refused a refund the next day and Nintendo implied that the pro controller could be used for all Wii U games and refused a refund for me when I bought Resident Evil 4 and found out it wasn't supported. Both companies were quite rude about it too. Nintendo were more professional than Sony though. The Sony rep literally laughed at me when I asked for a refund.

      I'm not gonna get it digitally, but if you could find me where Skyrim for Switch has ever been $40 I'd be super appreciative

    •  

      its not as bad if you got nintendo shop credit in previous sales :) so its an extra % off …

    •  

      Aren't Nintendo still horribly behind with digital, too? In the Wii days your games were flushed when your console died, weren't they?

      •  

        Yeah, but now they're tied to your account. As long as you make your new console your "primary", all licences will move to that one (you'd now have to be online for the old console's games to work after migration). That's how people like "Where's_That_Cake" do game-sharing. :-)

        Game saves are more difficult - you have to have an online subs ($30/yr) to get cloud saves, & so far you can't physically transfer to a new console (eg. on a microSD).

    Seems only skyrim is much lower than physical price

    Am I the only one who has a physical copy of Mario + Rabbids (regular version) and would really like the DLC to go on sale for once?

  • +4 votes

    Mario Kart not on sale, whyyyyyy, I've been waiting for 2 months

  • +4 votes

    Still no Celeste sale I see, do the devs have a vendetta against the "Europe" (i.e. including us) Switch regions or something?

    • +2 votes

      I too was waiting for a sale on Celeste.

      Couldn't wait.

      Worth it at full price to be honest.

    • +1 vote

      I’ve been waiting on Celeste also, it’s crazy they never discount as it was literally given away for free on Xbox not long ago!

  • +7 votes

    Very tempting…but I want physical games…

  • +1 vote

    Oh sick! We got the EU discount! Nice!

  • +2 votes

    Thanks OP! Not sure why some people are acting like this isn't a good price. BoTW for $62 is pretty good. Cheapest physical copy i've seen was like $70.

  • +4 votes

    Excellent, picked Skyrim and realised I still had credit in my wallet from the last time I stocked up on 15% off eshop cards! Not that I really needed to add to my growing pile of shame.

  •  

    Nice nice I’m in to broke to buy anymore.

  •  

    Diablo 3 on Switch would interest but not a chance at that price.
    Plus I’ve alrwady played hundreds of hours on pc so hmmm

    • +1 vote

      Yeah. $30 I’d maybe consider it again.

    • +1 vote

      FWIW, I preordered (with Amazon discount, but more than this). No regrets!

      I haven't played any other game since! :)

      I picked it up around 50 a month or so back when cheap, I've also owned on PC and Xbox and for me Switch version is best of the lot!

    • +1 vote

      Haha yeah, I'm kind of in the same place. I want Skyrim, but i kind of already have it, AND modded it. I'm not sure if I want to pay so much for the switch version.

    Any discounted eshop gift cards available at the moment? I haven’t seen a sale since the JB HiFi deal.

  •  

    How did you find these games to be able to purchase from the website?

    I can't find games with prices for the life of me.

  •  

    Monster Hunter is probably the best discount there; it's slightly cheaper than Amazon's price for it.
    Got a JB gift voucher I'd like to use for it but you can't buy them online which sucks.
    Gonna have to get up off my arse and go down there I guess.

    Overcooked 2 is at a good price,
    really tempted to pick it up

  • +1 vote

    Starlink Deluxe edition is a great price, and something you can't get elsewhere. $60 for what is the complete game is an awesome price. Might trade my physical copy into EB Games to take advantage of this.

    Also Overcooked 2 is a great price. Love the first one so finally bit the bullet. They seem to place this game on a 30% off sale every two months, so if you miss this, just wait till June - when I'm sure they'll pass it off as an end of financial year sale.

      re. Starlink - agreed!! The digital versions have a ton of DLC, saving you from buying all those toys.

      Including Switch-exclusive Starfox:
      * "Standard" digital includes 5 ships, 7 pilots 12 weapons
      * "Deluxe" has +1 ship, +3 pilots & +3 weapons (so 6 ships, 10 pilots & 15 weapons)

    Has Kirby ever been on sale on the Switch eshop?

  •  

    Celeste ever going on sale? I want it so bad!

    • +2 votes

      Just buy it. It's only what… $20 or so? It is a masterpiece. Pretty damn hard - I bounced off it the first couple of times I tried playing it, but the third time I went back it finally stuck and I smashed through it and actually managed to finish it. One of my proudest gaming achievements :D

    •  

      It goes on sale a lot in the US region, apparently AU is just on auto-pilot =/

  •  

    Thinking of picking up Zelda, but is this close to the regular price you can find online?

    • +2 votes

      Don't think, do. You're talking about a few dollars here and there potentially for a game that you are going to invest potentially hundreds of hours into, it's well worth it

    •  

      yeh it probably won't drop to something too ridiculous anytime soon, but like soundpimp said, it's something you will spend so much hour on it, I personally reckon it's well worth the money

  • +2 votes

    Stardew Valley???

    I’ve waited since I’ve owned a switch. Destined to never play cause I’m a cheapass

  •  

    Is the DLC for Zelda worth it? I noticed only the base game is on sale here.

    • +1 vote

      I personally bought the DLC, but what I would recommend is to play the base game first and see if it's the type of game that you like, I only bought it the DLC when im close to finishing the base game.

      The master sword trials were some of the most fun I had playing botw, and it fixes the painful weapon deterioration mechanic.

      Dlc feels like it was meant to be played after beating ganon but it really doesn't matter

  •  

    Thanks - been keen on a new Switch game for a while and Mario is a staple on any Nintendo.
