Nintendo Has One Decent Switch Deal for Black Friday

-

- Advertisment -

The Nintendo Switch never stays on store shelves for long. It doesn’t sell out as often as it did early in its life, but it’s still a very hot item and for good reason: It’s still a great console to get, even compared to next-gen offerings like the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. That’s why I’m stoked to see it sort of on sale. This kinda price is as good as it gets, folks.

It’s on sale for $300, which is admittedly its actual retail price, but this bundle includes Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, a party game every bit as essential as Scrabble. (Yes, Scrabble is a party game, leave me alone and let me drink my sherry in peace.) Usually these bundles stop there, but this one also includes three months of Nintendo Online service, so you can get schooled by Mario Kart players a third your age. This version of the Switch can be docked to a TV or played as a handheld.

Altogether it’s a value a bit over the sticker price. You’ll save about $68 on the bundle. Some states (mine included) are going back under lockdown through the upcoming holiday, which leaves me plenty of time to play through Spiritfarer for the hundredth time (here’s a list of our favorite games).

Before the quarantine, I used to love taking it to a cafe or on the bus. Now it just comes with me from my couch to my bed to the floor, or wherever I’ve decided to make a nest and be cozy for a few hours. It’s the perfect gift for this deeply accursed year.

Nintendo says it will also be available at Amazon, but isn’t as of publishing.
