Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove, Furi, And More Are On Sale For Nintendo Switch

By Dale Bashir on Aug 10, 2018

Nintendo Switch fans rejoice! While there is a bit of a dry spell when it comes to first-party games being released on the system, there’s still a ton of indie games you can get for your Switch. So while you’re waiting for Pokemon: Let’s Go Pikachu & Eevee or Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, why not check out these games to fill out your time.

The first obviously is Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove, which is the Shovel Knight collection and the definitive way to enjoy the indie platformer. This collection contains the original Shovel Knight game as you use the titular knight to beat the Order of No Quarter, the Plague of Shadows campaign which sees you use Plague Knight in a story that runs concurrent with the main game, and Specter of Torment which has you take control of Specter Knight in a prequel game to recruit the kings of the Order of No Quarter.

Technically, through this collection pack you’ll get a total of 4 different campaigns, with the upcoming King Knight campaign being released sometime in 2019. Treasure Trove is on sale now for 20% off, from $24.99 USD to $19.99 USD. Which brings it to about RM 81.55 If you want to get the Spectre Of Torment campaign on it’s own, it is also on sale for 20% off, going from $9.99 to $7.99, which is about RM 32.59.

Another indie platformer on sale is the excellent, or should we say eggs-sellent, Bomb Chicken. A new game by mobile developers Nitrome, this platformer has you navigating various levels as a chicken that lays bombs instead of eggs. You use the bombs as a platform or to blow up obstacles and enemies. It’s has a surprising amount of challenge and will leave you clamoring for more. The game was released last month, so it's great to see a very recent game go on sale for 40% off, going from $14.99 USD to $8.99 USD, which is also about RM 36.67.

If you’re feeling groovy, then this next indie title will be perfect for you. Crypt of the Necrodancer is a dungeon crawler and rhythm game hybrid, where you must explore dungeons, defeat monsters, all while moving to the beat. It’s a game like no other and can have quite a steep learning curve if you’re not the best at rhythm games. It’s a bargain now at 60% off this week, with the original price being $19.99 USD, to $7.99 USD or RM 32.59.

And last but certainly not least is Furi. A shoot-em-up, action game hybrid that looks stylish as hell. If you took the bullet hell segments of Nier: Automata and combined it with the neon aesthetic of Hyper Light Drifter, then Furi is what you get. If all that sounds good to you, than now is the time to get the game as it is 40% off. From its original price of $19.99 USD to $11.99 USD or RM 48.91, It’ll definitely get your blood pumping.

While the prices may vary depending on the region you used, generally all these games are on sale across the US eShop. There are a ton of other games on sale, these 4 are our top picks for this week’s sale. Check out the eShop yourself to see what other games might interest you.
