The Nintendo Switch is sure to be on a few million wish-lists in 2019, and Nintendo announced this year’s Black Friday Deals for gift-givers. Starting on November 28th, select retailers will offer a new Mario Kart 8 Deluxe bundle, which includes a Nintendo Switch system and a download code, for just $299. The bundle basically gives you the game for free, saving you around $60. The full bundle includes “Mario Kart 8 Deluxe” and two Joy-Con controllers, as well as the Nintendo Switch system. Now you can gift the bundle, and two people can start playing together as soon as it’s hooked up.
There will also be several Nintendo Switch games that will be available for $39, a perfect option if you want to stuff some stockings. The game sale starts on November 27th at participating retailers. The list includes “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 “Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus.”
“With Nintendo Switch, parents are not just giving a gift to their kids – they are providing fun for the whole family who loves to play together,” said Nick Chavez, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Families who have been waiting to pick up a Nintendo Switch system have the perfect opportunity on Black Friday to take advantage of one of our many offers and add some Nintendo fun to their holiday plans.”
The other promotions include $20 off a pair of Joy-Con controllers (Gray or Neon Red & Neon Blue), and the Poké Ball Plus accessory to use with the “Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!” and “Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!” games for $19.99 ($30 off). The Joy-Con offer starts on November 27th, and the Poké Ball Plus promotion starts on November 28th.
If you are shopping for a Nintendo Switch, don’t forget about the new Nintendo Switch Lite. That version plays the same games as the regular Switch, but the Joy-Con controllers don’t detach. The screen is a little smaller, and the device is a lot lighter than the original. For $100 less than the original Nintendo Switch, the big difference is that you can’t use the Nintendo Switch Lite in console mode, or play it on the TV. You can find current bundles and deals on the Nintendo Switch Lite right here on Amazon.
