Nintendo Switch Black Friday Console Bundle Is Coming Soon

As with Black Friday in years past, Nintendo has announced it will offer a special Switch bundle for the normal price of a Nintendo Switch without any extras ($299.99). This is generally the closest thing to a discount you’ll find on Nintendo Switch hardware all year long, so it’s safe to say this is a great time to buy a new Switch.

This year’s Black Friday Switch bundle goes live Sunday, November 22. It costs $299.99 and includes the following:

  • Nintendo Switch with Neon Red and Neon Blue Joy-Con (it’s the “V2” version with better battery life than the original hardware)
  • A digital copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
  • 3 months of Nintendo Switch Online

In other words, if you buy this bundle, you essentially get Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and three months of online service for free. It’s a great deal for anyone looking to add a Switch to their gaming setup, and it’s not likely to be beaten outside of Black Friday. When this deal goes live, it will definitely be the best time to buy a Switch.

Nintendo Switch Game Black Friday Deals Coming Soon

A number of retailers have released Black Friday ads, offering us a glimpse of what to expect during the massive annual sales event. You can see more in Best Buy’s Black Friday ad for full details on that front. A number of first-party Nintendo Switch games will be available for $27, the absolute lowest price point we’ve ever seen on these titles. So if you can find any of these games in stock during Black Friday for less than $30, I would strongly advise you to grab it before it’s gone.

Switch Joy-Con and Pro Controllers are not cheap at MSRP. Joy-Cons typically sell for $79.99, while Pro Controllers go for $69. Lately we’ve finally seen some standard discounts on these items, dropping $10 off the pricing. So what can we expect during Black Friday this year? It’s hard to say, because last year’s deals only dropped prices $10 as well. That gives us reason to believe we might see bigger discounts this year. Last year we also saw some great discounts on microSD cards, which you can plug into your Switch to get more storage space for digital games and saves. With the pace at which memory prices have been falling, we’ll likely see even better microSD card discounts this year.
