Nintendo Switch Cyber Monday 2019 Eshop Deals

To celebrate Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2019, Nintendo is having one of its surprisingly rare sales on digital games right now, with plenty of its fantastic first-party games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild available for cheaper than usual. If you prefer having all your games on your Switch at once instead of swapping carts in and out, Black Friday and Cyber Monday are your best chance to stock up on digital Switch games for the console at a nice discount.

That said, don’t expect huge price cuts in Nintendo’s Black Friday Eshop sale–this is still Nintendo, after all. But after digging through all the Switch games on sale, there are a few discounts that are worth calling out. Below, GameSpot’s editors and producers highlight some of their favorite Switch games that are being discounted on the Nintendo Eshop for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. In addition to Switch games, Nintendo’s Cyber Monday 2019 Eshop sale includes 3DS games, with the likes of Persona Q2 on sale for $20.

The aforementioned Breath of the Wild is the best deal of the lot (discounted from $60 to $42). On Switch, Nintendo has several notable single-player sequels to its main exclusive franchises–Super Mario Odyssey, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, and Pokemon Sword / Shield just to name a few–but, unfortunately, Breath of the Wild and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 are the only two on sale this Black Friday. You’ll have more options if you’re open to buying physical games, as detailed in our roundup of the best Switch game deals.

There are several excellent third-party and indie games on sale that you should consider picking up if you haven’t already. Celeste is a big one, one of the best indie games to come out in 2018, which has been discounted from $20 to $10. Dead Cells has a decent deal too, which is being sold for $17.49–a nice cut from its usual $25 price tag.

Read on for a look at all of our picks from the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale, which runs from now until December 4.

More Cyber Monday 2019 deals

Divinity: Original Sin II

$40 ($50)

Already regarded as one of the best RPGs in recent memory on PC, Divinity: Original Sin II works surprisingly well on Switch. It offers cross-save with PC, but even if you play it exclusively on Switch, you’re in for an open-ended RPG with terrific writing, interesting characters, and a huge amount of freedom. | Chris Pereira

Cat Quest

$4.54 ($13)

Cat Quest is a charming action-RPG set in the colorful open-world of Felingard. You play as a cat who needs to rescue his sister from evil forces. Along the way, you learn ancient spells and upgrade your weapons and equipment. While Cat Quest isn’t the most complex action-RPG, it offers about 10 hours of lighthearted fun for less than five bucks. | Steven Petite

Celeste

$10 ($20)

A difficult platformer with an important message, Celeste is one of the best sidescrollers on Switch. You play as Madeline, a young woman struggling with her mental health who decides to scale the treacherous Celeste Mountain. Celeste is all about running, jumping, and climbing, but each chapter slyly adds depth to these core mechanics. Make it to the top of the mountain and you can try your luck at the ridiculously challenging Farewell DLC chapter, which released earlier this year for free. | Steven Petite

Cuphead

$15 ($20)

Studio MDHR’s gorgeous 2017 run-and-gunner Cuphead arrived on Nintendo Switch earlier this year looking as gorgeous as ever. Cuphead’s authentic 1930s cartoon animation is what initially makes it stand out, but the crisp side-scrolling combat and challenging boss fights are what leave a lasting impression. It’s far more than just a beautiful game to watch in motion; Cuphead is also incredibly fun and rewarding to play. | Steven Petite

Dead Cells

$17.49 ($25)

One of last year’s best games, this roguelike offers satisfying combat as you attempt to ascend a tower in one go using whatever gear you can lay your hands on. Even when you fail, you can still make progress to help future runs, unlocking a variety of powers, weapons, and other perks. | Chris Pereira

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

$42 ($60)

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is one of the best video games ever created. Nevermind the beloved series it’s attached to, nor the fact that it was the strongest launch title for a wildly popular console. Its world, its mysteries, and its beauty coalesce into an incredible open-world experience unlike any other. Nintendo took risks with mechanics, pacing, and story, with no guarantee that fans would embrace any of it, and in almost every respect, the experiments paid off. Everyone who owns a Switch needs to experience this game to truly understand what Nintendo is capable of today. | Peter Brown

Gone Home

$7.49 ($15)

Gone Home is a true classic of the narrative genre and much more than just a “walking simulator,” as some derisively called it at release. More of an interactive exploration game, Gone Home is about a girl who returns home after a year abroad to find her house empty and her family missing. As you walk through her family’s home, you observe objects and find clues, eventually uncovering the truth about what happened. Gone Home paved the way for games like What Remains of Edith Finch, and it’s a gem worth playing if it somehow slipped under your radar. | Jenae Sitzes

Little Nightmares: Complete Edition

$9.89 ($30)

Little Nightmares 2 was announced this year, so there’s no better time to pick up the first game, which is available for just $9.89 on Switch right now. Little Nightmares follows a young child known only as Six as she makes her escape from a strange, terrifying vessel known as the Maw. The game involves stealth and some light puzzle-platforming as Six slips past the monstrous guests and workers on the ship. Because this is the complete collection, you’ll also get the game’s trio of DLC: The Depths, The Hideaway, and The Residence. | Jenae Sitzes

Mega Man 11

$15 ($30)

Mega Man fans waited so long for a proper sequel, the announcement of it didn’t even seem real–but it was just what Dr. Light ordered. Featuring a new art style that brings the series into 3D while looking sufficiently old-school, and a new skill-testing Double Gear mechanic, this is Mega Man as you remember it: tough, elegantly designed, and fast-paced retro action. | Steve Watts

Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate

$25 ($50)

Monster Hunter World may have skipped out on Nintendo’s hybrid console, but Switch owners can get their fill of monster hunting with Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate. An expanded port of the series’ final 3DS installment, MHGU features a wealth of monsters to slay, armor to craft, and quests to undertake, not to mention some unique gameplay mechanics that World lacks, like Hunting Styles and Hunter Arts. It may not be as immediately accessible as World, but Generations Ultimate is just as rewarding, and it has enough content to keep you busy for hundreds of hours. | Kevin Knezevic

Neo Cab

$16 ($20)

Welcome to Uber Simulator 2019! Jokes aside, Neo Cab is a fascinating story set in the futuristic city of Los Ojos, where automation has become so prevalent across different industries that it’s threatening human jobs, including protagonist Lina’s gig as a driver-for-hire. As Lina drives around the city, you chat with a diverse cast of passengers–if the conversations don’t go well, you run the risk of lowering Lina’s driver rating and earning less money, which you need to buy gas and rent a bed at night. With information gained through her many conversations, Lina becomes involved with a larger plot involving a mega corporation and her own best friend, forcing her (and you, as the player) to make some difficult decisions. | Jenae Sitzes

Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch

$35 ($50)

This stunning JRPG released on Nintendo Switch in September. Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is quite literally the perfect game for any Studio Ghibli fan, as the legendary Japanese studio lent its talents to the animation and music behind this game. Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom has since released and is also available on Switch, but while it’s a perfectly good game, it doesn’t quite live up to the charm of the first one. And at this price, you’re getting an exceptional game for a fraction of what it’s worth. | Jenae Sitzes

PictoQuest

$8 ($10)

Picross is an eternal mainstay for handheld systems, and if I don’t have unsolved puzzles waiting for a nice meditative before-bed experience I’ll go looking for one. That’s how I happened across PictoQuest. It’s Picross, but with some light RPG hooks. Taking too long on a puzzle will deal damage, and you can cast spells to help solve the puzzle faster or block enemy attacks. It’s light and simple, and not as full-featured or lengthy as the Picross S series from Jupiter, but as a cute twist and introduction to the puzzle subgenre, it’s worthwhile. | Steve Watts

Puzzle Quest: The Legend Returns

$7.50 ($15)

Puzzle Quest was a fun oddity in its day, a match-3 mash-up with RPG-like character building and battles. The combo isn’t as novel as it once was, but the original still may be the best. The Legend Returns combines all of the original Puzzle Quest content with its DLC and some new missions, along with a spate of new classes. The AI still cheats, but it’s a fantastic time-waster to have on-hand in portable form. | Steve Watts

Resident Evil 4

$20 ($30)

Here’s the thing: Resident Evil 4 is one of the best in the series, and not just because it took the horror gameplay in a third-person direction. Leon’s journey to save the President’s daughter in a dark European land is genuinely terrifying, filled with angry village mobs, cultish castle guards, and horrifying lab experiments. You won’t regret picking this up. Er, it is pretty scary. Maybe you will. But it’ll be worth it. | Tony Wilson

Snipperclips

$10 ($20)

Snipperclips is a co-op puzzle game with relatively simple objectives. But these involve manipulating your characters, literally cutting away parts of them by overlapping with one another. You can slice and dice your partner so that they can, for instance, carry an object across the level more easily. There’s no right way to go about things, and with controls that involve a single Joy-Con per player, it’s perfect for the holidays. | Chris Pereira

Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast

$8 ($10)

Everyone’s talking about Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, but if you want to experience another great Star Wars adventure, you can’t miss Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast since its Switch port released this September. Originally released in 2002 on GameCube and Xbox, Jedi Outcast has you play as Kyle Katarn, a former Jedi and agent of the New Republic. The best part is definitely the satisfying combat–Kyle can use his lightsaber, Force powers, and over a dozen different weapons including the Wookiee bowcaster, trip mines, and more. Unfortunately, this Switch port doesn’t include the incredibly fun multiplayer modes like Capture the Flag, but for only $8, Jedi Outcast is still worth the purchase if you love a good Star Wars game. | Jenae Sitzes

The Stillness Of The Wind

$6.49 ($13)

The Stillness of the Wind is a survival game and farming simulator, but even more than that, it’s a quiet, beautiful story about life, loneliness, and loss. You control an old woman with a crooked back named Talma, who painstakingly goes about her day on her rural farm, tending to the goats, making cheese with their milk, bartering with the local trader, and, at night, reading increasingly disturbing letters from her family in the city. The Stillness of the Wind will only take you a few hours to “beat,” but it will pull at your heartstrings and linger in your thoughts for a long time. | Jenae Sitzes

Subsurface Circular

$4.79 ($6)

Subsurface Circular is a text-based adventure game set in a single location. It features a clever dialogue system as you, a robotic detective riding a train, try to solve the mystery of a missing robot. Featuring some terrific writing, it can be finished in a single session, making it a perfect bite-sized experience for Switch. | Chris Pereira

Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido

$25 ($50)

Puzzle games are plentiful on Switch, but Sushi Striker is one of the system’s most criminally overlooked. This match-three-style puzzler has a simple premise: link up different colored plates of sushi and then fling them at your opponent. The taller your stack of plates is, the more damage it’ll inflict, but you’ll need to act quickly, as the plates continuously roll by on a conveyor belt. It’s a fast and frenetic experience with a humorous story and surprisingly lengthy campaign–and what better game to dip into during the holidays than one themed around food? | Kevin Knezevic

Torchlight 2

$14 ($20)

The first Torchlight was something of a stopgap for dungeon-crawler fans pining for a new Diablo. The second one got lost in the competition with the (at the time) newly released Diablo 3, and its PC-only status cut off some of the console audience that delved deep into loot lust for the first time. With its release on Nintendo Switch, you can finally play it on the go. It’s still obviously aping Diablo’s gameplay loop, but it has a unique art style and clever class structure, making it a good choice for those who want another experience like Blizzard’s series. | Steve Watts

Unravel Two

$5 ($20)

I can’t recommend Unravel enough if you’re looking for a cozy multiplayer game to play with your significant other, roommate, or a kid, and Unravel Two is just $5 for Black Friday. This game is a gorgeous puzzle-platformer where you and a partner each create your own “Yarny” and must cooperate closely to navigate levels. Together, you’ll make your way through various environments as these tiny creatures, who can jump, swing, and hoist each other over obstacles to move forward. The soundtrack is also fantastic. | Jenae Sitzes

Wargroove

$14 ($20)

Wargroove is a spiritual successor to Advance Wars, so it feels particularly at home on a Nintendo platform. The turn-based tactics game doesn’t simply recreate what made that classic series great, offering new wrinkles in combat like how critical hits and other bonuses work. It also features a robust editor that lets you create or download levels and even full campaigns made by other players. | Chris Pereira

Xenoblade Chronicles 2

$42 ($60)

Switch is home to a handful of sprawling RPGs, and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is one of the system’s best. Set in a world where humanity lives on the backs of continent-sized beings called Titans, the game casts players in the role of Rex, a naive young Driver on a quest to escort the living weapon Pyra to Elysium. The ensuing adventure takes the pair to some fantastical open-world environments filled with breathtaking scenery and memorable characters. Like previous games in the series, however, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is a dense experience, so it’ll require a bit of patience to get a grasp on its numerous gameplay systems, but what an adventure it is. | Kevin Knezevic

Yomawari: The Long Night Collection

$20 ($40)

Combining both Yomawari: Night Alone and Yomawari: Midnight Shadows, the Long Night Collection contains two excellent top-down survival horror games, both of which take place in a rural Japanese town at night and involve a young girl looking for someone (an elder sister in Night Alone, a school friend in Midnight Shadows). The streets are roamed by strange and deadly spirits, which are inspired by Japanese folklore and urban legends. The girl must avoid them, sneaking around and hiding in bushes until they pass, while also picking up clues to aid her search. | Jenae Sitzes
