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:
Complex puzzles await in a dark and twisted world of Little Nightmares that looks as if it was inspired by Tim Burton. You play as Six, a little girl in a yellow raincoat as she attempts to escape The Maw, a floating buffet for twisted souls to feed on the children.
Star Wars: Republic Commando
Before the hit animated TV series, Clone Wars, there was another way to see for yourself why a clone army is superior to droids. You play as Boss, and you command Fixer, Sev, and Scorch of Delta Squad on a series of missions around the galaxy! The Delta Squad isn’t just an AI either, you give the orders via the D-pad and your squadmates will comply; after all, good soldiers follow orders. Many Star Wars titles are on sale as well including Episode 1: Racer, Jedi Outcast, and Jedi Academy.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2
Now that the Disney Plus series, Loki has introduced the world to Kang the Conqueror, it’s never been a better time to join your favorite Super Heroes and Super-Villains from different eras and realities as they go head-to-head with the time-traveling Kang in the all-new, original adventure, LEGO® Marvel Super Heroes 2!
Katamari Damacy REROLL

The stop-at-nothing pushing prince is back and ready to reroll! When the King of All Cosmos accidentally destroys all the stars in the sky, he orders you, his pint-sized princely son, to put the twinkle back in the heavens above. Players can use the Joy-Cons™ to control the Katamari using the gyro controls to turn and shake the Joy-Cons to perform the Prince Dash when in Tabletop mode. Players can also play on multiplayer mode with a friend by using the two Joy-Cons on the Nintendo Switch.
