Nintendo eShop New Year’s Sale Discounts Several First Party Nintendo Switch Exclusives

The Nintendo eShop New Year's sale has discounted several great titles for Nintendo Switch and 3DS like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Super Mario 3D Land.

As most Nintendo fans are probably aware, games by the first-party publisher rarely go on sale. With how wildly successful the Nintendo Switch has been, most of its first party titles haven’t seen great discounts until today. Nintendo began a New Year’s Digital Sale today that discounts multiple notable Nintendo Switch and 3DS games by up to 75%.

This sale began today and will run until 8:59am PT on January 10. Nintendo also claims that some of these discounts will be carried over to retailers for this short period as well, so keep an eye out for discounts at your favorite stores if you prefer physical games over digital copies.

While critically acclaimed gems The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey are notably absent, some great titles from the Switch’s first year on the market are discounted by up to 30%. This includes Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, ARMS, and Splatoon 2. Even some titles that released in 2018 like Sid Meier’s Civilization VI, Octopath Traveler, and Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition are discounted.
