As a collector of physical Switch cartridges, my principles forbid me to 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:
Fans of SimCity games will really enjoy Cities Skylines on the switch including details like traffic management, independent districts, and tourism management, and even weather-related challenges!
Calico is a day-in-the-life community sim game where you are given an important and adorable task: rebuild the town’s cat café and fill it with cute and cuddly creatures! You will journey to a small village filled with magical girls and other fantastical friends, where you are placed in charge of a run-down cat café. Build up your café by filling it with cute furniture, fun decorations, yummy pastries, and get it bustling with animals again!
$14.99 $3.74 (demo available)
I’ve written about Blossom Tales before, and I’m sure I will again. It’s a fun RPG in the style of the original Legend of Zelda with its own unique challenges. It’s a real bargain for less than four dollars; but even if you don’t buy the game, definitely play the demo and I’m sure you’ll be hooked!
The Gardens Between
With a final free update DLC, Wounds of Eventide, coming out in December, there’s never been a better time to jump Best friends Arina and Frendt fall into a series of vibrant, dreamlike island gardens peppered with everyday objects from their childhood. Together they embark on an emotional journey that examines the significance of their friendship: the memories they’ve built, what must be let go, and what should never be left behind.
Ministry of Broadcast
I was immediately hooked when played the demo for this game at Dreamhack Atlanta in 2019. It’s a pixel-art puzzle platformer that takes inspiration from a political version of The Hunger Games. The unique puzzles and thought-provoking story make this an easy purchase while it’s on sale.
Dead By Daylight
Dead by Daylight is a 1v4 multiplayer game that allows you to choose between playing an unstoppable Killer and one of four Survivors trying to evade a gruesome death. This edition includes 9 killers and 10 survivors to choose from and 3 cosmetic packs.
