Super Mario Odyssey is still on sale on the eShop, in case you missed other deals.
This story is part of Holiday Gift Guide 2021, our list of ideas, by topic, by recipient and by price, to help you discover the perfect gift.
Nintendo has launched a massive eShop sale on the Nintendo Switch, with games on sale through Nov. 30, 11:59 pm PT. If you want to browse the full list, go ahead (link below). There are some Nintendo first-party games on sale, and although retailers were also selling those games, sometimes for even less, other sales appear to be done. Personally, I’m even more interested in the indie and third-party games for sale online.
While there are a number of Nintendo bundles and sale deals, the deals below are specifically for digital games on the eShop.

One thing to keep in mind: For big games like Super Mario Odyssey (on sale for $42 on the eShop), you’re better off looking elsewhere. GameStop has the game for $35 right now.
Running down the list, here are a few that immediately caught my eye:
Hades (normally $25, now $17.50)Astral Chain (normally $60, now $42)Ori and the Will of the Wisps (normally $30, now $18)Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove (normally $40, now $22)Spelunky 2 (normally $20, now $16)Tetris Effect: Connected (normally $40, now $26.79)Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania (normally $40, now $30)Jackbox Party Pack games (a number of them on sale, various prices)Sega Genesis Classics (was $30, now $15)Dark Souls: Remastered (was $40, now $20)Lost in Random (was $30, now $20)Contra and Castlevania Anniversary Collections (were $20 each, now $5 each)
