Cuphead: was $39 now $27 @ Amazon
Don't be fooled by Cuphead's family-friendly visuals, this action-platformer puts up a serious fight. Inspired by classic cartoons of the 1930s, Cuphead is a devilishly difficulty but highly rewarding experience. This Nintendo Switch version packs the Delicious Last Course expansion which includes new bosses and a new playable character, Ms. Chalice.
The Legend of Zelda Link's Awakening: was $59 now $39 @ Amazon
A remake of The Legend of Zelda Link's Awakening on GameBoy, this Switch title is packed with dungeons, puzzles and adventure. As well as tried and tested 2D Zelda gameplay, this game looks stellar thanks to its unique diorama-style aesthetic.
Sonic Frontiers: was $59 now $31 @ Amazon
Sonic Frontiers is the Blue Blur’s latest adventure, and it’s something of a departure from previous games. This time around, Sonic explores five distinct islands in a big open world, rescuing his motley crew of friends as he goes. The game has tight controls and varied gameplay, and the story is better than you might expect.
NieR: Automata: was $39 now $25 @ Amazon
One of the best action games of the last generation, NieR: Automata fits surprisingly well on the Nintendo Switch. Designed to be completed multiple times, each new playthrough unlocks another piece of the story.

Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is a delightful game that combines the animation style of the legendary Studio Ghibli with the monster-hunting gameplay of Pokemon. You play a young boy named Oliver on an adventure to save a strange other world from sinister forces and recuse his mother in the process. Ni No Kuni is one of the most charming games on Nintendo Switch.
Dragon Ball FighterZ: was $39 now $24 @ Amazon
If you want a fighting game that's true to its source material, look no further than Dragon Ball FighterZ. Utilizing Arc System Works' signature fighting game engine, this title features the over-the-top combat the anime is known for. This is still one of the best fighters ever released.
Sonic Mania + Team Sonic Racing Double Pack: was $39 now $26 @ Amazon
Sonic Mania alone makes this title worthwhile, but getting Team Sonic Racing is a nice bonus. The former is effectively the 2D Sonic game that was never released, while the latter is a fun Mario Kart-esque racer. Two games for $26? This one is a no-brainer.
