Black Friday EU Nintendo eShop sale up, hundreds of deals now live

Black Friday EU Nintendo eShop Switch Nintendo Cyber Deals Europe Nintendo Switch eShop

As Black Friday sales become increasingly scattered across the course of the month, different companies have employed wildly different timings. Nintendo of America set its digital eShop sale live earlier this week, and now the EU branch has followed suit. There are hundreds of deals to be had here, including discounts on some big first-party titles.

If you’re using the EU Nintendo eShop, you’re likely to see that these deals have graced the storefront. Front and center is a collection of first-party Nintendo games. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening are all on sale from Nintendo’s exclusive list. You won’t be surprised to see that these titles only have 33% off.

If you’re looking for deeper discounts, we recommend browsing third-party software. There are some decent offers to be had throughout. Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath and Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee are both 66% off, while the brilliant Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light are currently 50% off.

This year of all years, it’s probably a good idea to look at digital deals for Black Friday. Physical shopping remains an arduous task during the COVID-19 pandemic, and we much prefer browsing in the comfort of our own homes. This EU Nintendo eShop sale is live today through Dec. 2.
