Did you know that Nintendo has a Blockbuster eShop Sale happening right now? Some of the best Nintendo Switch games are being discounted by up to 85%, including popular titles like Animal Crossing and Super Mario Odyssey. This latest sale will be running until April 07, so there's no better time to get your game on. There's even a deal on the latest Princess Peach Showtime game. 

You can find these deals via the UK Nintendo Store, as well as the eShop on your Nintendo Switch, OLED, or Lite Console. But keep in mind that deals from the eShop are digital-only, so you won't receive a cartridge or case if you're looking to purchase a gift for someone else. If you need a console first, we have a guide to the best Nintendo Switch deals as well as the best Nintendo Switch OLED prices to help out. 

Animal Crossing: New Horizons:£49.99SAVE 33% 

Animal Crossing: New Horizons:£49.99 £33.29 at Nintendo

SAVE 33% A few years ago, during lockdown, Animal Crossing was everyone's favourite cozy Switch game. What's not to like about building your own tropical island while being indebted to a wealthy Raccoon? This game is still fun for passing the time, by interacting with your villagers, designing items, fishing, fossil hunting, and bug catching.

Super Mario Odyssey:£49.99 £33.29 at Nintendo

SAVE 33%: Super Mario Odyssey is one of my favourite Switch games, but this Mario title has a twist. The plumber's loveable hat, Cappy, is sentient and lets you possess objects, animals and enemies to help you save Princess Peach from Bowser. This game is fun for all the family, and excellent for train journeys too.

EA SPORTS FC24: £54.99 £16.49 at Nintendo

SAVE 70%: I'll be honest, I'm not really into football. But playing it on a console is so much better than watching it on TV, and I'm slowly getting to grips with it. I grew up watching mostly Liverpool and now Arsenal games, so getting to play as current and past players makes it all the more fun.  

There's also a US deal on this game too.
