It's tomorrow! Or possibly today, depending on when you read this. The point is, it's almost time for the Nintendo Switch presentation! We're so excited to see what Nintendo has been working on since the good 'ol "NX" days, and I'm sure that when we finally see it, the wait until mid-March is going to be a hard one. Thankfully Nintendo is willing to make that wait a little less painful by offering some discounts on incredible games to pass the time.

A brand new eShop sale has gone live, and several excellent games have been discounted on the Wii U and 3DS. On select games, you can get an additional 10% off if you're a My Nintendo member. You'll see when you log onto the eShop which games receive an additional discount, or you can log onto My Nintendo's website. Without further ado, here are the games on offer:

River City: Tokyo Rumble – $23.99 (was $29.99)

Obviously if you don't have Splatoon, then I may recommend waiting for the enhanced Nintendo Switch port. Otherwise, grab that now. It's an amazing game. Noitu Love: Devolution is another indie favorite that you shouldn't miss, and at this price you have no excuse. On the 3DS don't you dare miss out on Pocket Card Jockey - that game will drain all of your free time in the best possible way. Severed is also highly recommended. Happy shopping!
