Regular sales have become a welcome fixture on the Nintendo Switch eShop and there are huge numbers of cheap and discounted Switch games available at any given time. With so much choice it can be tough to know exactly is worth your hard-earned cash and precious time, and Nintendo of Europe is currently running a massive Festive Offers sale with over 1000 games discounted.
Never fear — Nintendo Life is here to help you sort the wheat from the chaff! Here we choose our favourite cheap Switch games in the Switch eShop sales so you can be sure you’re getting a great deal on a great game.
What do we mean by ‘best cheap Switch games’ exactly? We’re thinking anything discounted to around £10/10€ or under (GBP and EUR prices will obviously differ and sometimes won’t reflect the same percentage discount). In addition to the best cheap Switch games, we’ll also highlight a ridiculously cheap eShop game or two — we’re talking Switch games under a quid — which may be worth investigating for a few pennies, if only for a half hour or so.
So, let’s have a look at this week’s best deals on the Switch eShop.

Publisher: Bandai Namco / Developer: Omega Force

Moving Out (Switch)
Publisher: Team17 / Developer: SMG Studio
Release Date: 28th Apr 2020 (USA) / 28th Apr 2020 (UK/EU)
67% off – was £19.99 / 24,99€, now £4.99 / 6,24€ until 6th Jan 2022
Played with the mindset of having old-fashioned fun rather than pushing your gaming skills to their limits, Moving Out has quite a lot to offer. It looks good, sounds good and plays well; it’s just a shame there isn’t a little bit more to get your teeth into.
