Super Mario’s on sale right now, if you’re interested.

Did you miss out on the Black Friday/Cyber Monday Nintendo eShop sales, and do you own a Nintendo Switch? Nintendo has thrown us a bone: a new eShop digital download sale has emerged timed to last night’s Game Awards broadcast.

There are a bunch of seriously great Switch games at discounts through the morning of December 10 (at 8:59 a.m. PT to be exact). The whole list is here on Nintendo’s website. 

How good? How many? There are some games here that never seem to get sales, including Super Mario Odyssey and the recently-released Diablo III, which weren’t on sale during Black Friday or Cyber Monday on Nintendo’s eShop. Here’s what you should buy, if you don’t already own them.

Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page. 

Now playing: Watch this: Here’s why Super Mario Odyssey is so freaking great
