Nintendo’s early Black Friday deals on games and consoles have begun

Lasting through Saturday, November 27th

by · The Verge

Nintendo’s early Black Friday deals kicked off on Sunday, November 21st, and they’ll last until November 27th. Like last year, the main attraction is the standard Nintendo Switch console that includes Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and a three-month individual membership to Nintendo Switch Online. It all costs $299.99. Nintendo confirmed that the Switch console included here is the V2 model with improved battery life. Altogether, these items would cost around $370, so the $299 price point is stellar.

  • $299

This holiday Switch bundle includes the console itself (with improved battery life over its 2017 model), Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and a three-month subscription to Nintendo Switch Online.

Several games are seeing big discounts, including ones that don’t commonly see such a big price drop. GameStop is hosting the best deals of any retailer right now (plus, these are the lowest prices of all time for these titles) on new physical editions of games, and notably, their digital editions, too. To make it easier to view and shop, I’m just going to list them below with their best sale prices.

Here’s the list:

(If you’re purchasing a lot of digital games today, you might need a bigger microSD card to store more games on.)

You can also get big discounts on more interactive experiences for Switch, including Ring Fit Adventure for just $55 (usually $80) and Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit for $60 (usually $100). These are the biggest discounts yet for either of these titles.
