Summer is officially here. To celebrate, Nintendo just launched a huge eShop sale that makes for a perfect opportunity to stock up on some of the best Nintendo Switch games. Mario, Zelda, Fire Emblem and more of Nintendo's best titles have seen discounts.

The star of the sale is definitely The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for £41 at Nintendo. If you haven't played it yet, this is a must-buy. It lets you explore a gorgeous open world, solving puzzles and enjoying challenging combat as you go.

If you want a strategy game that will last you the whole summer, I recommend Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope for £16 at Nintendo. This game is packed with strategic turn-based battles, meaning you'll be able to play it for dozens of hours. And it's full of all the zany fun that Mario and the Rabbids are known for. It's a steal at £33 off.

Keep scrolling for all my favourite games in Nintendo's sale. I've also included a few Switch deals at other retailers for good measure. For more, see these last-minute Father's Day gift sales.
