Since its launch over two years ago, the Nintendo Switch has been one of the hottest products in gaming. And the momentum for the console/handheld hybrid isn’t slowing down. Going into this year’s Black Friday, the Switch has its strongest library yet. So expect it to be a popular item on many wishlists, along with other items we’re adding to Geek.com’s general Black Friday 2019 guide.
If you’re looking to get a Nintendo Switch and some games this Black Friday for yourself or someone you know, Nintendo has just revealed the deals you can expect to see at participating retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, Target, and Walmart. But here are some of the highlights.
You can pick up a Nintendo Switch itself for $300. You may think that’s not a deal at all but this bundle comes with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for free, saving you $60. The beautiful kart racer is one of Switch’s best games, way better than Mario Kart Tour on mobile, so it’s a game you otherwise should’ve gotten anyway.
We should also mention that this is the full-fledged Switch, not the recent Switch Lite. So you can play it on a TV as well as on the go. As a newer Switch revision you can also enjoy a longer battery life compared to earlier models. Other hardware deals include $60 Joy-Con controllers (down from $80) and a $20 Poke Ball Plus controller (down from $50) which is compatible with the upcoming Pokemon Sword and Shield.
Along with this hardware bundle, Nintendo is knocking $20 off the price of several high-profile Switch games. Considering how rare it is for Nintendo games to go below their original price, you should definitely hop on these $40 bargains. Discounted games include Super Mario Odyssey, Super Mario Party, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Splatoon 2, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Mario Tennis Aces, Kirby Star Allies, Octopath Traveler, and for some reason Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. Most of those games are pretty great, but read our in-depth reviews to see which ones are right for you.
