If you have been contemplating buying a Nintendo Switch, now is the time to do it. Black Friday and Cyber Monday typically bring out the best console deals across the board, including rare bargains from Nintendo and its retail partners. We've rounded up a few of the better deals on Nintendo's hybrid console, the only question is, which one suits you best?
Over at Walmart, you can snag a Nintendo Switch system with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe bundled in, for $299. The deal goes into effect this evening starting at 6 PM and is advertised as an in-store price. It remains to be seen if it will also be available online, but for the time being, plan on making a trip to your local Walmart.
This is a great bundle. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the second best-selling first-party title for the Switch, with Nintendo having sold 11.71 million units. The only other first-party game to notch more sales is Super Mario Odyssey at 12.17 million units. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe even tops the excellent launch title The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which has seen 10.28 million unit sales to date.
If you are more interested in Fortnite, Best Buy is selling a Switch Fortnite Double Helix bundle for $299.99. It comes with Fortnite's Double Helix set, which includes weapons and a unique outfit for your character. As an added bonus, it also comes with 1,000 V-Bucks. This bundle is currently shown as being "sold out," though keep checking throughout the day and tomorrow (Black Friday).
Finally, over at GameStop you can score a Switch console with a $50 GameStop gift card for $299.99. For gamers who are undecided about what to play, this is perhaps the best bundle of the bunch—once you decide what you want to play, you can use the gift card to pick up your game of choice.
All of these consoles comes with the neon red and blue Joy-Con controllers. Want something different? GameStop is also selling a Nintendo Switch Diablo III Eternal bundle with gray controllers and themed console, a themed dock, a Diablo III carrying case, and a full game download for Diablo III Eternal Collection that includes all Diablo III content for $359.99 (down from $409.99).
