It’s officially that day, and Nintendo’s Switch Black Friday deals are crazy good if you’re looking to fill up your storage.

Nintendo’s official eShop sales are usually the best chance to get solid Switch discounts on first-party titles. And if you like indies or smaller games, the discounts are almost Steam-esque in size, which makes everyone’s favourite game — buying stuff on the eShop — infinitely better.

877 games are discounted on the store at the time of writing, with big cuts on games like Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate, The Witcher 3, Ace Attorney Trilogy, Screencheat, XCOM 2, the BioShock series, Spyro: Reignited Trilogy, the excellent Astral Chain and much, much more.

Some genuinely nuts games on offer, and this is only part of the list. There’s a much bigger list over at Vooks, especially if you’re into more of the visual novels or just want to see just about everything on offer.

But I do want to call out: The Red Strings Club, which everyone should play; Golf Story, one of the best games ever made in Australia and one of the Nintendo president’s favourites; Assault Android Cactus for being crazy value at $12; WargrooveSonic Mania; the Spyro trilogythe Metro games, which run well on the Switch; and Iconoclasts, a super good platformer with a solid story and banging music for a very low price.

Also, your Witcher saves can carry over from the PC to the Switch and back. You’d think most people would have played The Witcher 3 by now, but if you haven’t, it runs really well on the Switch. Like, wizardry-level of crazy good. It genuinely shouldn’t be as playable as it is.

But there’s definitely a ton of offer. Hit up your Switch eShop and go nuts!

  • Pricing error on the Diablo 3 there.

    I mean I already own it on both PC and Switch AND Ps4… but seeing it for 4 bucks I was like HOT DAMN THATS A GOOD DEAL.

  • With the 15% off with Coles Nintendo eShop cards, I think I’ll finally bite on Burnout Paradise ($35). Also, the voucher deal will put Origami King and Hyrule Warriors at $57 each. Excellent.

    ***These prices are taking into account the Coles discount.

  • My personal more indie picks of the not-featured (and repeats of ones that were but are worth reinforcing, eg Coffee Talk and XCOM2):

    Aegis Defenders (~$7), CastleStorm (~$5), Coffee Talk (~$15), Doom 1-2 (~$4 each), GOD EATER 3 (~$21), Hammerwatch (~$6), Katana Zero (~$14), Lumines remastered (~$12), Monster Prom (~$12), Murder by Numbers (~$15), Mutant Year Zero (~$28), Prison Architect (~$9) Ruiner (~$15), Road Redemption (~$15), Sega MegaDrive Classics (~$30), Saturday Morning RPG (~$3), Scribblenauts Mega Pack (~$20), Civ 6 (~$45), Spyro trilogy remaster (~$35), Super Bomberman R (~$12), Superbrothers S&S (~$4), Skyrim (~$40), Jackbox packs (varying ~$18-24), Thronebreaker (~$15), Valkyria Chronicles (~$11), XCOM2 (~$36).

    I’m playing Murder by Numbers right now and I can’t believe it didn’t review better. The writing is much better than other things I’ve been playing recently, if only for authenticity in dialogue.

    • Oh snap, things I only noticed after posting:

      Picklock – the new release stealth’em’up is launching at six bucks, 50% off? I’ve seen zero reviews for this, but at $6 I’m game.

      The reasonably good Sin Slayers is 90% off at ~$3, the surprisingly engaging Dungeon Solver is a god damn rounding error at sixty cents, and I’m scooping up the intriguing Blood Will Be Spilled which looks like it’s taking boatloads of ‘inspiration’ from Steamworld at a sub-$5 price tag.

  • I didn’t know about save portability on Witcher 3, so might actually buy it.

    If people haven’t played Riptide yet, get it. It is a criminally underrated arcade jet ski game that for $5 is a great price.

  • Crazy good? Crazy good? I think you mean standard Nintendo shit-house ‘discounts’.
    Borderlands Handsome Collection was released in 2015… $42
    EB Games will sell you a brand new physical copy of Need for Speed Hot Pursuit for cheaper than the E-Store version (https://www.ebgames.com.au/product/nintendo-switch/259951-need-for-speed-hot-pursuit-remastered)

    And these are just random examples I picked. Nintendo’s ‘sales’ always have been shit due to their outlandish philosophy that cheap games create a perception of cheap quality.

      • I was going to make a joke about Space Invaders but you can buy Space Invaders Forever on Switch… for about $50. Yes, yes, improved graphics, more content blah blah blah…

        Nintendo’s walled garden is way worse than Apple or its ilk. Premium is the name of the game, even for old or ‘budget’ games.
