Nintendo eShop Sale: Up to 40% off Best-Selling Indie Games

Posted by | News, Switch | No Comments

What’s the perfect follow-up to unwrapping a shiny new console for the holidays? A digital game sale! The Nintendo eShop is hosting an indie game sale on the best-selling indie games of 2019. From now through December 28, save up to 40% on some of the best indie games of the last several years.

Here’s a list of all the games on the indie sale:

  • Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition $13.99
  • Cuphead $13.99
  • Slay the Spire $19.99
  • Baba Is You $12.00
  • Unravel Two $4.99
  • My Friend Pedro $13.99
  • Terraria $20.99
  • Downwell $1.49
  • Torchlight 2 $11.99
  • Blasphemous $19.99
  • Castle Crashers: Remastered $8.99
  • SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech $17.49

We would strongly recommend Ori and the Blind Forest for fans of 2D action-platforming, Slay the Spire as a rogue-like deckbuilding card game, and SteamWorld Quest for a more story-based RPG deckbuilding card game.

The indie game sale isn’t the only sale currently running on the eShop. Just about everything except first-party Nintendo games are discounted.

Capcom games such as Phoenix Wright, Resident Evil, and the Mega Man games, are up to 75% off. Bandai Namco is also hosting a 75% off sale on the eShop, with games like Doraemon Story of Seasons and Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch. You can also find discounts on Overcooked and Yooka-Laylee (Team17 publisher sale), Mario + Rabbids and Assassin’s Creed (Ubisoft sale), and Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest RPGs on the Square Enix sale.

Each publisher sale runs for a different length of time. Check out the Sales and Deals page on the eShop for more details.

Save on Indie Games for Switch in the Nindies New Year Sale

Part of the Nintendo Switch’s success is its embrace of indie games, which Nintendo has dubbed, ‘Nindies.’ To celebrate the New Year in 2018, several of last year’s indie releases on the Switch are on sale, up to 35% off. The Nindies New Year sale ends January 15.

There’s a nice mix of puzzle games, cooperative multiplayer, shoot ’em ups, and rhythm racers. I can personally give a thumbs up to Death Squared and Thimbleweed Park.

  • Death Squared – $11.24 (25% off)
  • GoNNER – $6.99 (30% off)
  • Graceful Explosion Machine – $8.99 (30% off)
  • INVERSUS Deluxe – $9.74 (35% off)
  • Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime – $9.99 (33% off)
  • Semispheres – $6.99 (30% off)
  • Severed – $9.99 (33% off)
  • Thimbleweed Park – $14.99 (25% off)
  • Thumper – $13.39 (33% off)

Nintendo is also running a contest for a chance to win free codes for each of the Nindies on sale. You add two entries into the pool by visiting the Nintendo EShop, and by retweeting the Nintendo Europe account. You’ll have to fill out your name and email as an official entry. The contest ends January 11.

In related news, all the indie devs involved in the Nindies New Year sale came together yesterday for a Reddit Ask Me Anything thread.
