Nintendo Eshop Games Summer Sale Best Games

These are just a few of our picks for the best deals just waiting to be added to your Switch’s digital library.

Technically, the official start of summer isn’t coming for more than a week. Don’t tell gamers, because we’ve been to various summer-related events before, such as Geoff Keighley’s Summer Games Fest and IGN’s Summer of Gaming. However, the latest summer event might be the most exciting for gamers so far, especially for gamers with a Nintendo affinity.


Nintendo’s Summer Games Sale is officially underway, giving players deals of up to 50% off over 1,300 titles available on Nintendo eShop. The sale will run from now until June 16 at 11:59 p.m. PT.

Nintendo’s sales – especially when it comes to Nintendo-published games – are pretty sparse, so its Summer Games Sale should be the perfect time to take advantage and nab all the titles you’ve been waiting for. Even if you already have a large backlog of games to play, you can at least get the games played later cheaply right now.

This list is barely a drop in the bucket in terms of what’s on sale right now, with plenty of other options available for under $10. But hurry because the sale ends in less than a week.
