Nintendo Switch Blockbuster eShop sale Europe European UK sales

The Nintendo Switch eShop is home to a wide array of fantastic games, with one of my personal favorites being the endearing Baba is You. That being said, it’s especially thrilling when Nintendo hosts a massive sale, and European fans are in luck. Nintendo of Europe is currently teasing a Blockbuster Sale, which will go live on the European Switch eShop on September 23 at 3 p.m. CEST. The Switch eShop Blockbuster Sale for Europe will feature both first-party and third-party titles, offering discounts as high as 80% off.

Nintendo rarely does price drops for its games, but Super Mario Odyssey, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, and Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX are among the games receiving discounts. In terms of third-party offerings, Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster, Rune Factory 4 Special, Borderlands: Legendary Collection, and more will be available at a reduced cost.
