Nintendo Switch eShop doesn’t have a ton of exciting new games out this week — no offense to perfectly serviceable arcade ports, like Johnny Turbo’s Arcade: Bad Dudes and Arcade Archives: Punch Out!!. But there are ongoing eShop sales that are worth taking a look at, making this week a better time to pad out the missing pieces of your Switch collection.
Highlights among the games on sale include Snake Pass ($9.99, down from $19.99), a platformer whose recent update brought a new mode and a much nicer home menu icon; Thumper, the intense rhythm game that continues to entrance us ($11.99, down from $19.99); Kamiko, a short action game that features some beautiful pixel art ($2.99, down from $4.99); and The Jackbox Party Pack 2, the best of the series and an essential multiplayer game ($16.24, down from $24.99).
Many of these sale prices are only good through 12 p.m. ET today, although some extend through next week. Check out the Nintendo eShop sales page for the whole list.
