Nintendo’s Switch eShop may be kind of a pain to navigate, but at least it regularly features sales on digital downloads of games. Of course, there are a ton titles on there, so it can be kind of tough to sift through them all. I poked around and found what I think are some of the best deals available on the service this month — deep discounts on games that you might actually want to play, if you haven’t already. Just be sure to keep an eye on the expiry date, since they’re all only valid for a limited time.
- Moonlighter: Complete Edition is $5.79, down from $28.99 until April 16, 2022 as a part of 11 bit’s studio sale, which also includes games like This War of Mine and Children of Morta.
- Catholic-themed 2D Soulslike Blasphemous is $6.24, down from $24.99 until April 20, 2022.
- LEGO DC Super-Villains Deluxe Edition is $11.24, down from $74.99 until April 16, 2022. It’s actually a pretty fun time if you ever wanted to be friends with the Joker.
- Sega Genesis Classics, which includes a whole mess of Genesis games in a cute little wrapper, is $11.99, down from $29.99 until April 17, 2022.

- Tales From the Borderlands, which many hold to be the best game in the series, is $14.99, down from $24.99 until April 7, 2022.
- Persona 5 Strikers, which is as close as you’ll get to playing the full game on the Switch, is $34.99 for the Deluxe edition, down from $69.99 until April 17, 2022.
- Last year’s Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania is $29.99 for the Deluxe edition, down from $49.99 until April 17, 2022.
