There’s a bunch of high-profile games coming to Switch in the coming months, including, and . But a set of sales launched March 17 on Nintendo’s eShop give you many great options to tide you over until those games are released.
Capcom, Ubisoft and Square Enix have all put significant discounts on many of their best games and sifting through the entire sale yields you some other gems too. You can find all the deals here, or scroll below for our picks.
One of the big bummers about this generation of gaming is that there was no new Burnout title. These were some of the best racers on the PlayStation 2, and Burnout Paradise was fantastic on the Xbox 360 and PS3. It’s now on the Switch and $25 off.
Some of the best games of the PS3/Xbox 360 generation in one package and at a hefty discount. The Collection includes Bioshock, an excellent first-person shooter set in an underwater dystopia, Bioshock 2 and Bioshock: Infinite, which takes place in a city in them clouds.
A fourth Bioshock game is in the works, but it appears to be a far while off. If you’ve not played these games yet, you should.
Immortals Fenyx Rising is Ubisoft’s take on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It’s improbable that any game could stack up to that masterpiece, but that doesn’t mean Fenyx Rising isn’t worth playing. It mixes the open-world mechanics of Breath of the Wild with Greek mythology and mixes solid combat with fun puzzle solving.
Released late last year, it’s 50% off until March 31.
No Final Fantasy game has been able to match the renown and legacy of Final Fantasy 7, but if any modern game in the franchise has come close it’s Final Fantasy X. One of the best RPG games of all time, it’s available with its sequel, X2, in a HD Remaster package.
South Park: The Stick of Truth was originally released back in 2014, but it remains one of the strongest licensed games you can buy. Developed by Obsidian Entertainment, the gang behind Fallout New Vegas and The Outer Worlds, this South Park game takes on RPG and fantasy tropes. It’s funny (if you like South Park, an important disclaimer) and is $12 until Aug. 30.
Stick of Truth isn’t the only game on the list from Obsidian. Outer Worlds is an RPG set in an alternate universe and three centuries into the future. In this world, Teddy Roosevelt never became president, antitrust laws were never legislated and now, as a result, the solar system has been colonized by the universe’s biggest companies. It’s a great setting for a great game.
Borderlands is one of the many franchises gamers missed out on if they’ve only owned Nintendo consoles. That’s a shame, since the action RPG series is full of quirk and character. The Legendary Collection brings Borderlands, Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, and is currently $20 off.
