Star Wars Day isn’t until May the 4th, but that hasn’t stopped Lucasfilm from dropping out of hyperspace early with steep sales and deals that run the gamut from physical merch to video games across all platforms. Nintendo fans in particular should definitely take notice, as nearly the entire suite of Star Wars-related content on the Switch eShop will have steep discounts at some point between today and early May.
