Nintendo’s latest sale on Switch, 3DS and Wii U games might be the largest the company has ever offered. Hundreds of games are included, featuring big names like FIFA 18, Rocket League and much more.

On the Switch side, the big deals include FIFA 18, Rocket League, SteamWorld Dig 2, Overcooked and World of Goo. There are 65 total Switch games on sale right now, but unfortunately, none of the big first-party Nintendo games are on that list. This means Super Mario Odyssey, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe aren’t included in this sale.

For 3DS, there are more than150 different games on sale. That’s a huge number, but it also means the good deals are harder to pick through. Many of the games on sale aren’t anything to get too excited about, but OlliOlli for less than $3 is a steal. Other notable games on sale include Monster Hunter Generations, Mega Man Legacy Collection, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy and Super Street Fighter IV.

The Wii U has 122 games for sale as well. Many of these deals are similar to the 3DS offers, but some notable inclusions are Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, Shantae Half-Genie Hero, Darksiders 2 and everyone’s favorite: Suspension Railroad Simulator.

Reading through these game lists, the first thing that comes to mind is the surprising number of small indie games that are released on the eShop. There are a large number of these titles, like Turtle Tale, The Bridge and Earth Atlantis, that I had never seen before. These games might not get the most press coverage, so check around to see if a game you’ve never heard of is a game you’ll really like.

Nintendo didn’t mention how long the deal would last, but it makes sense to keep it active through the holiday season. I’m sure eShop giftcards will be a big stocking stuffer this year too, making these games even more attractive for those who just got a new console and are looking to fill up a library.

So what do you think? Are you interested in any of the games in the eShop sale? What games are you holding off on until they have a reduced price? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
