As the world closed out 2020, Nintendo of Europe set a substantial digital eShop sale live, containing over 900 deals. Unfortunately, the sale didn’t feature much from Nintendo’s major first-party lineup as the promotion focused on third-party offerings. That’s been put right with a New Year Sale on the EU eShop, live until Jan. 10 and featuring plenty of terrific Nintendo Switch game deals.

If you picked up a Switch system over the holidays, now is probably a good time to browse the eShop. Some of Switch’s biggest games are on sale, including The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and more. Most of the major Switch first-party exclusives are at their usual 33% off.
The rest of that first party lineup includes Super Mario Odyssey, Luigi’s Mansion 3, and 51 Worldwide Games. The sale has also been bulked out by a number of third-party releases, including the recently released Immortals Fenyx Rising, which we thought was excellent.
If you’re looking for steeper discounts to bulk out your Switch library, the New Year Sale on the EU eShop has you covered there too. Unravel Two gets a massive 75% off, while the likes of Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled, Two Point Hospital, and Civilization VI see a 50% discount.
The New Year Sale is live on the EU eShop through this Sunday.
