Although Nintendo’s not quite as reticent to discount its games as it once was, it’s still fairly uncommon to see the company’s titles go on sale, which makes it ironic that some of the best Prime Day 2020 game deals we’ve seen have been for Switch games. A number of the console’s best titles are currently discounted at Amazon and other retailers, including the recently released Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition.
Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition released on Switch this past May. This updated version of the classic Wii RPG features improved visuals and refined UI elements. On top of that, it comes with a brand-new epilogue story called Future Connected, which follows Shulk and Melia’s adventure one year after the events of the main story.
We gave the Switch version a 9/10 in our Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition review. “Although not every aspect of Xenoblade Chronicles has aged as well as others, Definitive Edition proves that Xenoblade Chronicles is still a fantastic JRPG with an immense amount of strategic depth that’s still impressive in 2020,” critic Jake Dekker wrote. “Its bevy of improvements and additions, as well as its fantastic epilogue, make this an adventure worth embarking on a decade later.”
There are quite a few other can’t-miss game deals in Amazon’s Prime Day sale. You can also pick up Pokemon Sword or Shield for $40, while Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is down to $50 (just in time for its latest DLC character, Steve from Minecraft).
