As a collector of physical Switch cartridges, my principles forbid me buy a digital download for more than $10, so every week I find five great budget Switch games in the Nintendo eShop discounted to $10 or less. (in no particular order.)
This week’s top five:
Scott Pilgrim vs The World: Complete Edition
The story behind the Scott Pilgrim beat-em-up is complicated, to say the least. After the game was pulled from online stores due to copyright disputes between the various publishers of the movie, the comic, and the video game; the Ubisoft game is back! It’s a fun adventure with several characters with unique styles and moves.
Child Of Light: Ultimate Edition
Part platformer, part RPG, this adventure game has a unique style. Not only is the artwork hand-drawn in a beautiful watercolor style, but the story and dialog has been written in rhyme and verse to match the soundtrack.
Another FMV game from Wales Interactive? Yes, yes it is. The Bunker is a choose-your-own-adventure movie about the last survivor in an underground nuclear bunker. You can’t experience the whole story in a single playthrough, so be ready to commit a few hours to unlock all the scenes!
Resident Evil: Revelations
This Resident Evil game takes place between 4 and 5, and the Switch port comes complete with motion controls! Follow Chris and Jill as they work for the BSAA to investigate an abandoned cruise ship! If you want to kill even more zombies, all Resident Evil games are on sale right now and Revelations 2 is also only $7.99.
Crypt of the NecroDancer: Switch Edition
COTND is a rhythm-based rogue-like dungeon-crawler. Move and attack to the beat to maximize your attack power and slay your enemies without getting hit! It’s surprisingly fun, even if you aren’t that good at rhythm games.
Assassin’s Creed III (Remastered)
Who doesn’t love a good Assassin’s Creed game? AC3 is on sale right now for about $16 and it’s worth every penny., especially when it includes the DLC packs Liberation and The Tyranny of King Washington. If you want a deal on even more Assassin’s Creed, The Rebel Collection is on sale right now as well.
For more great deals, check out last week’s list as many of those games might still be on sale! I’ll be back next week with another list of five great budget Switch games in the Nintendo eShop discounted to $10 or less!
