If your Nintendo Switch could use some new games, you’re in luck. A number of digital Switch games are on sale right now on the Eshop. And although you won’t find any big first-party titles on the list this week, some of the discounted games are certainly worth your attention. Here’s a look at the biggest games on sale this week on the Nintendo Switch Eshop.
If you’re in the market for some Halloween-style horrors, you have a couple of deals to choose from this week. Darkest Dungeon is an RPG, a rogue-like, and a horror story all wrapped up in one unrelentingly bleak package that’s on sale for $19. You assemble a team of adventurers who advance through creepy areas filled with monsters. But monsters aren’t the only thing you have to worry about–your characters can get diseases and go mad from stress and trauma. And yet somehow it’s still a fun and rewarding game.
The Jackbox Party Pack 3 is discounted to $15 this week. It comes with a selection of fun party games, including Trivia Murder Party, which puts players in a situation inspired by the Saw movies. You’re all captured by a surprisingly funny maniac who puts your life and limbs on the line for correct answers. For a more action-oriented take on the spooky holiday, Slain: Back from Hell soaks its horror themes in heavy metal and gore; it’s on sale for $6.
Syberia and Syberia 2 are on sale for $20 each. They’re adventure games from the early 2000s that work quite well on the Switch. They tell a lightly fantastical story that involves talking to NPCs, finding items, and solving puzzles in European and Russian settings. Yooka-Laylee, on sale for $30, is a throwback to the days when cartoonish 3D platformers topped the charts. And Battle Chef Brigade, which mixes monster hunting with puzzle-based cooking, is on sale for $12.
