Nintendo Switch's New Year eShop sale has some fantastic games up for grabs


Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics, Grindstone, and Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2 all deserve a nod

There's no shortage of worthwhile games on Nintendo Switch, it's just a matter of swooping in at the right time to get the most bang for your buck. For some of you, the eShop's New Year Sale will be it.

Note that I said "fantastic games" and not "fantastic deals" in the headline.

This is an eShop sale, after all – and a highly curated one at that. The actual discounts for a lot of these Switch games might seem small, but I think most of these are quality games (even if we are sick of seeing that standard $41.99 sale price on first-party Nintendo games no matter how old they are).

A few recommendations if you're looking for a nudge: Clubhouse Games (I loved dueling the big-brained AI opponents), Good Job! (it's a chill "afternoon co-op" sorta game), Grindstone (it'll last you a ridiculously long time), Curse of the Moon 2 (don't feel like you must play the original game first), A Short Hike (it's so lovely), and Shinsekai (a rare Capcom metroidvania). I'm eying Immortals, but I can keep waiting.

I'd also say that $11.99 sounds a heck of a lot better than thirty bucks for Aladdin and The Lion King.

Either way, take a look – the eShop New Year Sale will last until 11:59 p.m. Pacific on January 21.

Trying deal links even hours after this article's time stamp may lead to self-punching, so maybe bookmark our video game deals if you're on the hunt. Also, it goes without saying, but some shopping links do directly support the author. If you've spotted any inaccuracy please let us know asap.
