The best Switch games to grab from the Nintendo eShop New Year Sale

Watch out Funky Kong, that goose has a knife!

New year, same old regularly-scheduled game sales on the usual digital storefronts. To kick off 2022, the Nintendo eShop is hosting a New Year Sale until 11:59 p.m. Pacific on January 16 — it’s your chance to grab Shin Megami Tensei V (for $41.99 instead of $59.99) and Untitled Goose Game (for $9.99, aka half price), among others. What a devilish pairing! I always had my suspicions about that goose’s neighborhood-pestering nature.

While I’ve got other rapid-fire New Year Sale recommendations to share below, I feel like spotlighting those two games specifically. SMT V is a beast of a game that’s reaching out to folks in the “long-time-watcher, first-time-player” camp, thanks in part to its timing, its platform (the ol’ Switch boost), and its neat exploration/platforming. It’s nice to have a big boy RPG — except when it isn’t, and your spirit is crushed. But I believe in you!

As for Untitled Goose Game, while I feel like over-the-type hype outweighed reality as is often the case, it’s still a swell game — and not nearly enough people experienced the joy of cooperative goose hijinks. An after-the-fact update added a two-player shared-screen co-op mode to this unique sim puzzle game, and it’s fun to tag-team bully the kid.

Other games to check out while they’re at low prices

I tried to prioritize games that are at newly-low prices with this list, so depending on your tastes and tolerance for digital game prices, you might want to scope out the wider list of games. As always, aside from the Nintendo eShop sale page, the so-good-it-might-as-well-be-official Deku Deals is another fantastic resource for price-checking.

Don’t sleep on Huntdown, by the way— it’s your favorite ’80s action flicks in super-slick run-and-gun shooter form. (That’s a nudge for you just as much as it is for me.)

Anything else slip through the cracks? Let us know what’s looking good.
