Nintendo is selling “game vouchers” again in the Nintendo Switch eShop. He, offering savings of up to $20. Most of the eligible games are Switch exclusives and retail for $60, so if there’s a couple of titles you want, this might be a good deal for you.
Notably, two upcoming Switch exclusives are currently included in the promotion: Kirby’s Return to Dream Land Deluxe and Bayontta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon. Dream Land Deluxe is a remastered port of the Wii side-scrolling game that will be released on February 24. Meanwhile, Bayonetta Origins is a prequel that swaps the over-the-top combat for atmospheric adventures with more emphasis on puzzle-solving. The prequel launches on March 17. If you buy a coupon for $100 and choose these two games, you’ll save $20 total.
If you’re not sure if you want any of those games, there are plenty more to choose from. Another standout is Fire Emblem Engage, which just launched in January and has yet to be released. A bunch of hits from the past year are also on the line, including Splatoon 3, Xenoblade Chronicles 3, and Pokemon Scarlet & Violet.
Before you decide which games to use your game voucher on, or even buy it to begin with, you should check the game listings at major retailers. If you’re not careful, you could end up spending more money in the games couple than anywhere else. The list includes a ton of older titles that you can get for less than retail price. For example,Y they can often be found for around $40 each, so you’d save about $20 compared to the coupon deal. Nintendo’s own titles tend to remain at retail prices on the eShop, even several years after release.
There are a few things about Nintendo Switch game coupons that you need to know. You don’t have to use them immediately, but they expire one year from the date of purchase. Nintendo says they’ll add more titles to the list over time, so other exclusives may be included in the coming months. You must be a member of Nintendo Switch Online to purchase coupons, and each Nintendo account is limited to eight active coupons.
