Over the past year or so, we’ve started to see more regular discounts on first-party Nintendo Switch games. It seems the days of Zelda and Mario games selling for list price for literal years are in the rearview mirror. That said, Switch games still hover around full price for longer than PlayStation and Xbox games, which makes any discount on a fairly recent title noteworthy. Walmart has loads of great Nintendo Switch games on sale for $49.94 right now, including Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Fire Emblem: Three Houses.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons has been discounted to $50 before, but it’s never gone for less, and this discount is still pretty rare. If you haven’t picked up the massively popular simulation game yet, now’s your chance to get it for a stellar price. Fire Emblem: Three Houses, one of the best tactical RPGs on Switch, doesn’t get discounted often, and this is the best price we’ve seen.
Zelda fans can pick up the adorable remake of The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening for $49.94 as well. Released in 2019, Link’s Awakening is often still sold for full price. Whether you want to revisit your childhood or introduce your kids to old-school top-down Zelda, Link’s Awakening is a gem that every Switch owner should play.
