Nintendo is the latest to reveal its Black Friday 2019 discounts, announcing deals on Nintendo Switch console bundles, games and more.
As November zooms along and we rapidly approach Black Friday — the busiest shopping day of the year — more and more retailers and game publishers are starting to reveal their upcoming holiday discounts. Nintendo is the latest to do so, revealing a slew of offers you’ll be able to find this holiday season.
Nintendo highlighted a few specific Black Friday offers that you’ll be able to find at just about every major retailer, including a Nintendo Switch system bundle with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Starting November 28, you’ll be able to purchase this bundle for $299.99, which is the price of a Nintendo Switch system and a game for no extra cost.
It’s worth noting that while the price point is attractive, this is not the newer Nintendo Switch with the better battery life. This bundle is the original Nintendo Switch model HAC-001 with a battery that ranges between 2.5 to 6.5 hours.
In addition to the bundle, two of the Nintendo Switch’s biggest games will also be discounted. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey will each be available for $29.99, which is $20 off their regular price. Both games are among the top-rated for the Switch and are highly recommended if you are just now getting the console. The Nintendo holiday website also mentions 33 percent off other select games for the Switch.
If you’re looking for some local multiplayer, you’ll be able to snag an extra Joy-Con controller for $59.99, $20 cheaper than its price.
Nintendo’s holiday website specifically mentions Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, Target, Walmart as participating retailers. Target has already posted its Black Friday 2019 ad, which confirmed these exact discounts plus more for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Black Friday offers will begin on November 28, though the website says other discounts start on November 27.
With an already stellar library of games, with more on the way — including Pokemon Sword and Shield (Nov. 15) — now is as great of time as any to dive into the Nintendo Switch. We’ll be sure to keep you updated with all the best Black Friday 2019 deals for Nintendo, PlayStation and Xbox as retailers reveal them.
