[Japan] Nintendo Switch Golden Week Sale 2024 now live until May 6th!

The Golden Week is a series of consecutive public holidays in Japan, and since most people get plenty of days off that time of year, this “week” always sees a lot of sales and special offers from various retailers. Nintendo platforms are no exception. Case in point with the Nintendo Switch Golden Week Sale, which will take place from April 23rd to May 6th this year!

To be precise, the Nintendo Switch Golden Week Sale will run from April 23rd (12AM JST) to May 6th (11.59PM), and will see several games discounted from 20% to 75% off. And since most of those games do offer an English langage option, that means even players outside Japan will be able to take advantage of that sale (especially interesting with how weak the Yen has been lately!).
