Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals: Big savings on physical games plus an unstoppable Mario Kart console bundle


Nintendo’s Black Friday deals for Switch hardware and games are live

Nintendo has given shoppers a heads-up about what to expect from 2021’s Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals, and oh my goodness, they’re doing it again — they’re rolling out the $300 Nintendo Switch and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe bundle that we’ve seen for years.

I’m not complaining, mind you — it’s just a bit funny. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is a freaky force of nature that continues to sell super well, and if you’re going to buy a Nintendo Switch for the first time in 2021, you’re probably gonna want Mario Kart to go along with it.

Apart from the pack-in game and the normal Switch console with a dock (not the newest and priciest OLED model), this bundle has a three-month subscription for Nintendo Switch Online (not the new Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack tier). Simple, but effective.

In terms of physical games, Black Friday (or should I say the days surrounding Black Friday) will bring a $20 off discount for select Nintendo Switch titles.

Nintendo will have deals starting November 21 at participating retailers, and there will also be a Nintendo eShop sale on digital games, though the timing isn’t announced yet.

**GameStop currently has physical and digital Switch games for $26.99**
$300 Nintendo Switch console bundle
Nintendo Switch physical games are $40 instead of $60
Ring Fit Adventure is $55 instead of $80
Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit is $60 instead of $100

Nintendo says that Black Friday deals will last until November 27, or until supplies run out.

Definitely try and scoop up Ring Fit Adventure at that price if you’re interested — I can’t guarantee that you’ll stick with it, but I can guarantee that it’s a great game in its own right. You will feel the burn. Mario Kart Live is pretty fun and novel at that price too.
