Nintendo surprisingly puts its digital Switch games on sale for Black Friday

Consoles might come and go but one thing has always remained consistent for Nintendo, and that’s its higher prices. Fortunately, the company has taken a step forward this Black Friday, reducing prices across its various eShops.

Dubbed Cyber Deals 2018 by Nintendo, Switch owners can grab up to 33% off first-party titles for the very first time. This places Super Mario Odyssey, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze all at £33.29. Both Warriors spin-offs from Fire Emblem and Zelda’s Hyrule follow suit, dropping to £33.29, while launch title The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild hits £41.99 on both the Switch and the Wii U.

Greater savings can be seen across some of the Switch’s third-party titles, with Ubisoft’s South Park: The Stick of Truth reduced to £17.99 and its sequel The Fractured But Whole at £29.99. RPG Lost Sphere gets a whopping 60 % off, dropping from £39.99 to £15.99. Fan-favourite Rocket League will allow players to drop into a game with anyone from almost any platform for £9.00. And Skyrim can now be played on-the-go for £33.29 for the duration of Black Friday.

Scaling things down to indie-sized will net up to 50% off, starting with Enter the Gungeon: Advanced Gungeons and Draguns Edition for £5.49. SteamWorld Dig and its numbered sequel are available for £4.49 and £7.49 respectively, while Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove sneaks down to £17.99. Partying with friends has never been easier, as The Jackbox Party Pack 2 heads down to £9.49 and Pack 5 hits a low £16.79.

KitGuru Says: Personally, my highlight is still Breath of the Wild nearly two years later. It might seem like an arguably high reduction, but when you consider Nintendo very rarely cuts its high-street prices, this could potentially be the best offer we’ve seen on the game yet. Does anything stand out to you?
