The latest Switch sale is a taster of the annual Nintendo Spring sale which is expected to arrive in the next few weeks. But there’s no need to wait until then as you can already pick up some of the best Nintendo Switch games at lowest ever prices on the Nintendo Store

The current selection of Switch deals on the Nintendo Store start from $4, but my personal pick is The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for $15. That’s a 60% saving on a massive RPG with easily more than 100 hours of content. And if you want even more role-paying goodness, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is 50% off, this is another game that will easily last you dozens of hours. 

Other unmissable discounts in this Switch sale include Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope for $19 (67% off), Lego 2K Drive for $19 (67% off) and delightful arcade throwback Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge for $16. If you’re looking to spend as little as possible Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is just $9, and Planets vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville has dropped to $7, that’s a massive 80% discount off its regular list price. 

The Nintendo Store isn’t the only place offering some excellent Switch deals. If you prefer a physical game card over a digital download, you’re in luck. Amazon has its own selection of seriously sizeable Switch discounts, and I’ve included my top picks down below as well. Plus, make sure to check out this Switch and PS5 game sale at Woot.
