Diablo III for Switch already on sale

General Discussion
Diablo III for the Switch was released on 2nd November.

Just a month later and it's already on sale...
https://www.nintendo.co.uk/Games/Nintendo-Switch/Diablo-III-Eternal-Collection-1417875.html
Down from £49.99 to £34.99 until 10th December, i.e. a 30% discount.

Was this promotion intended to make it cheaper for people to buy a Switch and D3 so they could take part in the competition to win a Switch and D3?
I might be wrong but a lot of titles will go on sale to clear inventory. Games like Mario Odyssey might stay full price for a long time because Nintendo knows they can sell it for that much

That's kind of the point, i.e. they're trying to clear it just a month after it released.

Indeed. At least that's a smart move on their part. Yet I'm not entirely sure why they're pulling the price down that much. That gave me the impression that sales are slow due to Switch sales.
Or it's Christmas season and they believe they'll move that much more at a reduced price. Though, that may disrupt the "D3 Sux!" narrative of some. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

It's called a Christmas sale. They happen every year around this time.
It's the holidays and btw it was already a bold decision to make it a 60$ purchase when the game isn't new.

They already have tons of active players on the Switch, more than on the PC, so I don't think they really need to put it on sale, it's just for Christmas.
It's a Nintendo marketing decision.

You are reaching in your quest to watch things burn. CoD Black ops 4 is on sale for 29.99. A game that raked in 500 million n 3 days.

Yeah...don't get me wrong, I basically despise Blizzard now and don't plan on buying any more of their products ever unless drastic changes are made in the company, but D3 on Switch being on sale has nothing to do with Blizzard's downfall. It's Nintendo putting stuff on sale for the holidays, like they always do. The physical edition doesn't appear to be on sale (not by much anyway - it's $55 on Amazon).
I bought a switch bundle with Mario kart during Black Friday. Best deal I’ve ever seen for this system.
Christmas? Take a few dollar hit to sell a lot more copies. I'm quite sure a lot more sales happen during the holidays, and not just to games, to get people to spend more at that particular store. TOYS/GAMES especially go on sale during Christmas
Thats a promotion only blizz can come up with; win a switch but only if you already got a switch - head > desk. ^^

I own a Switch, and I wouldn't say no to a second one.
