If you still haven’t picked up 2019’s best strategy RPG, now’s your chance with the base game and DLC on sale. You don’t need to play it to get the recently announced Fire Emblem: Engage, but its fantastic story, character relationships, and battles are worth it.

7. Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin

$20 (was $60)

Wings of Ruin mashes up Monster Hunter with Pokémon, letting you capture monsters to fight for you, rather than chopping them up to make new armor. This turn-based RPG is more story-focused than typical Monster Hunter games and a lot more approachable.

$30 (was $50)

The Witcher 3 is hands down one of the best action RPGs ever. This port runs shockingly well on the Switch, and you’ll definitely want the Complete Edition, which includes two fantastic DLC episodes.

3. Neon White

$20 (was $25)

A strange mix of card game and blisteringly fast shooter, Neon White is a nominee for this year’s Game Awards. On top of its unique gameplay, it features great, deeply horny dialogue to make it even more special.

Annapurna Interactive

2. Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes

$40 (was $60)
