In honor of Pikmin 4 showing its face, it’s time to check out Pikmin 3 Deluxe while it’s on sale
If you’re looking to add a game (or three) to your digital Nintendo Switch collection, here’s a friendly nudge. Between the Blockbuster Sale and several other publisher promos going on right now, there are a lot of deals to peruse on the Nintendo Switch eShop.
No, no — not that Blockbuster. But I sure do have fond memories of picking out N64 games for weekend rentals. With so many potential games to try and limited knowledge, it was a surprisingly high-stakes decision. You also had to be okay with less-than-satisfying games — you got what you got and enjoyed it as much as possible.
For this Switch eShop Blockbuster Sale, Nintendo is highlighting games like LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, and Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition. After going through the list — and also the deals from publishers like Sega, Warner Bros., and NIS America — I’ve picked out a bunch of highlights for you.
I’m honestly still riding high from this week’s “Pikmin 4 is happening and we mean it this time” reveal. It’s truly never too late to break into this one-of-a-kind series, and Pikmin 3 Deluxe is the perfect entry point, especially if you want to take another player along for the ride in the fully co-op-enabled campaign and other side activities. There’s a demo!

As always, you don’t have to take it from me — the Hottest Deals section of Deku Deals is a huge help in cutting through the clutter. That said, I tried to whittle the deals down.
The Nintendo Switch Blockbuster Sale ends on September 25 at 11:59 p.m. Pacific. Other deals from select publishers will end on different dates, which you can double-check here.
Whatever you end up with, happy playing.
