Bayonetta 1 and 2, Kirby Star Allies, Payday 2 pre-load starts on the European Switch eShop

Posted on January 11, 2018 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

A few different Switch games can now be pre-loaded on the European eShops. These are Bayonetta 1 and 2, Kirby Star Allies, and Payday 2. The same option has not yet been extended to North America.

If you pre-load, you can be ready for launch. The process lets you purchase games in advance and download most of their required data. By doing so, you’ll be able to play almost right away upon release.

    All these great games coming on Switch 😮

    Honestly I bought a Switch with Xenoblade 2 in December and I have recently bought Skyrim (I wanted Mario Odyssey but there was a shortage of it here in France, same thing for Zelda, so Skyrim was an obvious choice) so it’s clear that I won’t be able to buy these games anytime soon given I’ll have Zelda, Odyssey and mario Rabbids to buy before that :p).

    By the way, I was shocked by Skyrim in portable: it’s really impressive what they’ve done, neverp layed Skyrim before but it’s really beautiful, stable and huge.
    If you never played Skyrim and want a very impressive game you should give it a try (after buying Xenoblade 2, this one is the ultimate must have with Zelda ^^).

  • You can pre-load games that are more than a month out already? They’ll just be taking up space on your Switch’s memory until then? Seems like an odd choice.

      Choices are always good to exist.

    Anyone know how much the Bayonetta games cost together? I know it’s 50 for Bayo 2 and 30 for Bayo but the Switch news message says something about a discount if buying them together.

      It’s 60 for both.
