Game news Nintendo Switch promotion: 10 nuggets to discover for less than 15 euros during the holidays

The Nintendo Switch is constantly running promotions on a whole bunch of games, big and small. This summer is no exception! Are you hungry for quality but also quantity? Here are ten little nuggets that you can add to your shopping cart without inflating the price too much.

Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King

An all-pixel action RPG, a successful homage to 2D Zelda, an old-school chiptune soundtrack, thoughtful puzzles, a rhythmic adventure… This is all that awaits you Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King. The Castle Pixel title released in 2017 certainly doesn’t reinvent the wheel, but it’s an enjoyable and well-executed game nonetheless. There we find Lily, a knight with a rose, who must save her kingdom from the disgusting crocus. The latter put the king to sleep and threw his lands into terrible chaos. Suffice to say, Lily’s adventure will not be without its pitfalls. But she can happily count on her sword and even a wand to accomplish her mission.


DARQ: Complete Edition

Fan of Burton movies? The atmosphere of the game to come will probably seduce you! Due to its dark and atypical artistic direction, DARQ immediately remember movies like Funeral rites Where Mr. Jack’s Strange Christmas. Even the synopsis looks like a Burtonian creation. You play as Lloyd, a mortal young man stuck in his dreams, or rather his nightmares, and must find a way to escape. Between Limbo, Inside and Little Nightmares, the game offers a short but gripping experience that will delight lovers of darkness and special atmosphere. Note that the Complete Edition includes the base game, of course, but also the Tower DLC and Crypt DLC.
