You undoubtedly already knew about the big eShop sales on 1st party Nintendo games, and probably most of the other big ones from major publishers. Today, we are highlighting some of the best games on the eShop that have deep discounts and are of course, exceptional.
The House in Fata Morgana: Dreams of the Revenants Edition
Who Is It For? When you ask visual novel enthusiasts about the best visual novels on the Nintendo Switch, anyone who has played them all will include The House in Fata Morgana in the top 5. Anyone who is remotely interested in the genre will likely love this one, especially fans of creepy and gothic tales with tons of tragedy. There is a lot of value here with the main game, a prequel, and a sequel adding up to over 40 hours of content for completionists.
The Case of the Golden Idol
Who Is It For? Fans of detective games like Paradise Killer, Sherlock Holmes , or AI will enjoy what The Case of the Golden Idol has to offer. This is a strange little detective game that features tons of freedom, allowing players to come up with their own conclusions while they solve 12 awful murders. Anyone who enjoys quirky visuals will certainly have a lot to look at here.
This Way Madness Lies
Who Is It For? Retro RPG fans who want a touch of Shakespeare and magical girl will be delighted at what this polished RPG offers. It isn’t too long and can be completed within 10 hours, but at just $5, it’s hard to go wrong.
Who is it for? Dusk feels like it was for those who enjoyed shooters like DOOM or Quake in the 90s. The blend of action, horror, and retro visuals are nothing short of a good time. Sure, it’s only 30% off, but this is the lowest price ever on a game that has been out since 2021. It’s only the 3rd time that this has gone on sale, so unless you want to wait another year, this might be the best time in a while.
Who is it for? Survival horror fans. No, Really. It is a masterclass in tension and narrative, with an emotional and layered story that worms its way into your brain and sticks there. Inventory management, stumbling enemies, and a scary atmosphere – it’s all here. Anyone who misses the PS1 era of Resident Evil will love SIGNALIS. At its lowest price ever, this is the best time to get into the best horror game on the Switch.
Monster Train First Class
Who is it for? Deckbuilder fans rejoice. Sure, Monster Train is no Slay The Spire, but that doesn’t stop it from being really good. It has great atmosphere, tons of great card art, and strong balanced gameplay that is perfect for those needing more card games in their lives. At 75% off, this is the best deal for one fo the best games in its genre.
Who Is It For: Infernax is here for fans of NES action games like the Castlevania series before it figured out the Metroidvania formula. It’s tough, has excellent dark fantasy visuals, and uses those sweet, sweet NES visuals and tones.
A Space For The Unbound
Who Is It For? Looking for an excellent game that mixes slice-of-life, visual novel, and adventure elements? You are asking for a lot, but A Space For The Unbound has you covered. This is a newer game that hasn’t had too many sales, but regardless, this is the cheapest it has ever been and it’s a whole lot of fun. It’s just an excellently told story that evokes nostalgic feelings.
Who Is It For? Shoot ’em up fans need some love on this list too. Sophstar looks pretty dang retro – you would think that this came out in an arcade cabinet. Like most of its peers, it’s not very long, but completionists will have about 20 hours of content here, and it’s hard to find a cheaper shoot ’em up right now.
Who Is It For? Solar Ash is out there for fans of stylistic action games with tons of crisp platforming. It’s not perfect and can get repetitive if you aren’t all in on the themes and gameplay, but this is a great deal for those who have been looking for this kind of game.
The Entropy Centre
Who Is It For? Those who want puzzle games like Portal (Which is also on sale this Black Friday) might want to check out The Entropy Centre. It’s well made in presentation and level design, and while it isn’t too difficult, it’s so engaging that this is easy to forgive. The game is now more than half off, making this a great time to hop in.
