I could seriously go on - because just about everything on the eShop is on sale today - but I'd be here forever. Put simply: Mario Rabbids is an absolute steal if you haven't played it already, it's a great time to knock out Final Fantasy 7 on the Switch before the remaster next year, Sayonara Wild Hearts is tons of fun if you don't have access to Apple Arcade, and Morphite is a great Aussie indie that's basically No Man's Sky-lite for $4 bucks. Don't overlook The Messenger or Axiom Verge if you want a new platformer, either.

You can access all the above deals, and more, by going to the eShop through your Switch.

    Personally, AI The Somnium Files was my GOTY; if you're a fan of Zero Escape or other sci-fi visual novels I can't recommend it enough. I personally nabbed Sayonara Wild Hearts, Axiom Verge, Vall Hall A and the Banner Saga 1, but I think I might go back and nab Morphite too.

      I have to agree. AI: The Somnium Files is excellent. Highly recommended for fans of the Zero Escape series and just good mystery stories in general. We need more stuff like this.

    The Witcher is like 55.00 or something.

    I had 40.00 in points, so picked it up for 15.00 just to see how it runs on the Switch in handheld mode.

    I'm both impressed and horrified.

    I got Gato Roboto for 6 bucks. Aside from some stupidly frustrating boss sequences, the game is super-charming and scratches a little bit of that Metroid itch. Definitely worth 6 bucks.

    Picked up Into the Breach for about a tenner. Excellent game.
