Nintendo eShop: New Year’s Eve sale takes up to 40% off Mario, Yoshi, Splatoon and more

Hot on the heels of Switch’s massive Christmas sale, the Nintendo eShop New Year’s Sale is now live until January 12. Here you’ll find up to 40% off some of the biggest Switch games like Mario Tennis Aces, Dragon Quest 11, Overwatch and more.

In total, far fewer games are included in this one, but the focus this time around is on major and first-party releases. As we’ve come to expect discounts on these games, however, they’re not hugely exciting.

Of the lot, the best deal has to be Octopath Traveler for £29.99. I have this nasty feeling that a digital copy has only been around this price once before, so here’s another opportunity to get it while the “stately, compelling JRPG throwback” is discounted .

As for the rest? Well, that’s the usual 30% discount. That means you can get games like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Party and Splatoon 2 for £33.29. It’s still one of the cheapest prices they’ve ever been, so worth it if you were waiting for a sale.

Here’s the full list of offers from the Nintendo Switch eShop New Year’s Sale:

  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for £33.29
  • Overwatch: Legendary Edition for £25.19
  • Super Mario Party for £33.29
  • Dragon Quest 11: Echoes of an Elusive Age for £33.29
  • Yoshi’s Crafted World for £33.29
  • Splatoon 2 for £33.29
  • Octopath Traveler for £29.99
  • Mario Tennis Aces for £33.29
  • Fitness boxing for £27.99

The Nintendo Switch eShop New Year’s Sale ends on January 12.

In the meantime, you can also find a Capcom sale on the Nintendo Switch eShop until January 27th too! Resident Evil, Mega Man and Devil May Cry are just a few of the series represented in the sale, though again some prices are less than tempting. I mean, I love Resident Evil 4, but I’m not going to buy my 6th copy for almost £20.

Elsewhere at Jelly Deals, we’re looking at the best Nintendo Switch stylus for Brain Training, our pick of the best Nintendo Switch SD cards, and where you can find a Switch Online membership for the best price.
