It rarely happens that Nintendo offers the games from its own studio at a lower price. But within the framework of eShop New Year promotion there is a whole range of top-class titles on offer.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
Next to Super Mario Party itself, Mario Kart is arguably the biggest party hit for the Nintendo Switch. The arcade races with popular characters like King Boo, Bowser Jr. and of course Mario himself can be played locally with up to four players on one console. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe contains all tracks and characters of the Wii U version including DLC. There are of course also new routes and a revised battle mode. A new, intelligent control makes the race fun even for beginners.
Luigi’s Mansion 3
It sounds like a dream vacation: Mario and friends are invited to a stay in a luxury hotel. But the dream quickly turns into a nightmare when it turns out to be King Boo’s ploy to catch Mario, Peach, Luigi and the others. However, with technical help from Professor E. Gadd, Luigi sets out to free his friends. To do this, he must capture ghosts in Ghostbuster style and solve the mysteries of the 15 floors of the ghost hotel.
Disney Dreamlight Valley
Dreamlight Valley is a fairly new title that the TECHBOOK editorial team tested extensively last year in the Early Access phase. The eponymous valley is infested with dark magic and gloomy night thorns rob the villagers of memories of happier times. Players must now take the reins and restore order to Dreamlight Valley. To do this, they build clean up in the village and rebuild it. You can collect furniture and objects for the facility that are known from Disney films. There is help from the magician Merlin and in the course of the game you will of course meet different characters from the Disney universe.
