Your Black Friday Nintendo Switch Shopping Guide

Gaming Videogames

As the go-to Nintendo guy—both professionally here at GeekDad and in my personal life—I spend much of the holiday season answering questions about the very best of (and best values on) Nintendo hardware and video game titles. Each year, I try to take some time to spotlight the notable deals leading up to the grand shopper’s holiday that is Black Friday, and 2022 is no exception. 

This time around, there aren’t exactly a lot of surprises, but you’re sure to find something to satisfy the Nintendo fan on your gift list, be they long-timers or more recent converts.

Hardware

This year, Nintendo is again offering a special original Nintendo Switch bundle that includes a digital copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and a 3-Month Switch Online Individual Membership for $299.99.

At present, there are no official Nintendo Switch Lite or OLED Model deals, but if you’re looking to pick up one of these newer Switch iterations on the cheap, the My Nintendo Store regularly stocks refurbished consoles for $169.99 and $319.99 respectively.

Physical Releases

In addition to the Switch bundle, Nintendo has knocked a cool $20 off of first-party titles like Mario Party Superstars (review), The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (review), Animal Crossing: New Horizons (review), The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes (review), and BRAVELY DEFAULT II at select retailers, taking the price for each down to around $39.99.

Also up for grabs at 33% off are WarioWare: Get it Together! ($32.99) and Big Brain Academy: Brain vs. Brain ($19.99), and, if you like a little augmented reality in your racer, you can save $40 on Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit ($59.99).

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the best deals to be found are in the Nintendo eShop. So, whether you’re buying for a new Nintendo Switch owner or just picking up a couple of things off your own wish list—I’m looking at you, Cult of the Lamb—there’s something for everyone available in the Cyber Deals sale.
