Although there are not any direct cash discounts on Switch devices, the company is offering New Switch OLED package Which pairs the $350 console with a digital copy of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate And an individual subscription to Nintendo Switch Online for three months at no additional cost. The console’s Joy-Con controllers feature Smash Bros.-Themed design as well. This bundle is available at many retailers, including Walmart, Goal, GameStop, Best buy And Nintendo’s own online store.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate usually Retail trade In the $50 to $60 range and a Switch Online membership It goes for $8This depends on what you save here. We’ve seen the console cost less on its own, but if you mean a bid Smash Bros. One shot, there are much worse options for a free game. despite of climax Released in 2018, we still consider it the perfect fighter for Nintendo’s system, and it currently holds a spot on our list of the best Switch games.
Speaking of which, Nintendo has also discounted a few of its Switch titles. Some of the highlights include the cute adventure game Luigi’s Mansion 3 Down to $40, the 3D platformer Kirby and the Forgotten Land At a new low of $42 and a 2D platform Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Reaching a new low of $30. (Cue the memes.) Luigi’s Mansion And Tropical freeze Both are included in our roundup of the best couch co-op games, while Forgotten land Featured in our above-mentioned list of the best overall Switch games. Elsewhere, RPG Xenoblade Chronicles 3 On sale for $40 Kirby’s Return to Dreamland Deluxe And Mario Strikers: Battle League Each is available for the low price of $30. Some of these deals aren’t the lowest they’ve ever been – and it’s hard to describe games like them Battle League And Back to dreamland Essential – but each is at least a little cheaper than usual.
Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze (Digital)
Among the Switch games not published by Nintendo (in America) is a turn-based strategy game Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope On sale for $15, this is the recently released version Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Vol. 1 It’s $20 off $40 hardcore RPGs Shin Megami Tensei F It is back to an all-time low of $20. Another couple of popular RPGs in Persona 5 Royal And Octopath Traveler II They are also on sale for $25 and $39, respectively. (Although you can get… PS5 version than the latter for $9 less.)
Meanwhile, the Nintendo eShop operates a store Selling “Cyber Trades”. Until December 3. Many of the above deals are available there as well, but other highlights include Gateway companion group (Which includes great puzzles of all time outlet And Portal 2) for $6.79, animated management slide Soul traveler For $7.49, the retro platformer Prophet For $5, multiplication Streets of Rage 4 For $12.49 and beautifully written Kentucky Road Zero And Disco Elysium For $12.49 and $14 respectively. All of these match the lowest prices yet for the Switch versions of each game.
Unfortunately (and perhaps predictably), many of Nintendo’s latest games aren’t officially part of these sales, so we don’t expect to see big discounts on 2023 games like The Legend of Zelda: Kingdom Tears, Pikmin 4 or Super Mario Bros Wonder. Staples is technically listed Zelda And He wonders for $40 each, but they don’t have any games in stock as of this writing. You can also take $5 discount He wonders At GameStop if you order online and pick it up in store, though, that’s not a deal. the oldest Super Mario Odyssey And The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild We are On sale for $40 each, though Walmart says they will be available both of them to Those It’s available for $30 on November 22, so it’s worth waiting if you haven’t played either one yet.
There is, too Package that pairs A red and blue set of Joy-Cons with a digital version of them Super Mario party For $100. Since consoles typically go for $80, the deal effectively brings the game down to $20. That’s about $30 less than its usual cost. It is worth noting that this is not the latest Mario Party The game, though – that would be Mario Party Super Stars, which was released two years ago. However, if you want to play a few new boards and need a set of Joy-Cons anyway, it could come in handy.

If you’d rather not pay for a Switch OLED, Nintendo is still selling holiday bundles Standard switch And Switch lite also. The systems themselves aren’t any cheaper at $300 and $200 respectively, but the Switch is available with them Mario Kart 8 Deluxe And the same Switch Online membership in diverse Retailerswhile the Switch Lite now comes with Animal Crossing: New Horizons in Walmart And Goal.
These bundles have been available for a few weeks, and the games included are back on the older side — Mario Kart It arrived way back in 2017, while Animal crossing Hit in 2020 Mario Kart The bundle in particular is one that Nintendo releases almost every holiday season, so it’s not an amazing deal. However, both titles tend to sell for between $40 and $50 on their own, and both are listed in our Switch game buying guide. If you’re late to the switching train, they are solid starting points.
The big caveat to all of this is that we may be nearing the end of the Switch’s life cycle. The original console arrived nearly seven years ago, and Various reports We suggested that we would likely see some sort of follow-up in 2024. Which is recent Eurogamer a report, for example, said Nintendo demoed a potential “Switch 2” to developers in August. If you don’t want to catch up on Switch games you missed, it might be wise to wait.
However, the Switch library is still excellent. If you (or your child) are looking to finally jump on the bandwagon, these deals provide at least a little extra value — even if we’d prefer to see more deep discounts on consoles by this point.
