As Golden Week kicks off in Japan, a number of Japanese publishers and developers are slashing the price of their games to celebrate. Square Enix is the latest company to join in the part, as they bring up to 70% worth of savings to some of their biggest IPs.
This sale, which sees some classics — like multiple major Final Fantasy games, the first three Dragon Quest games, Collection of Mana — get huge reductions alongside some of last year's releases. NEO: The World Ends with You is 50% off, for example! And Voice of Cards: The Forsaken Maiden gets a lovely little 20% discount. You'll be saving up to 70% on many of the Switch's best RPGs, plus a few other games. Maybe now is the right time to try Balan Wonderworld out?
Here's a look at everything that's on offer (thanks, Nintendo Everything), as well as a handy eShop credit discount that will help your money go even further in the sale:
