Amazon Prime Day Nintendo Switch deals this year may be a little too low, especially since the supposed Nintendo Switch Pro model was nowhere to be found, but we’re hoping to find better deals by the time of this year’s Black Friday sale .
When is Black Friday 2021?
This year’s Black Friday sale officially begins Friday, November 26th, but you can expect many retailers to announce their promotions well in advance.
Historically, Black Friday is known as the start date of the holiday shopping season as Christmas approaches. Over the years, retailers have capitalized on the hype surrounding the sale by launching Black Friday promotions in early October, which means there are plenty of opportunities to get Nintendo Switch deals at low prices.
Best Buy’s Black Friday deals were announced in late October, covering some Nintendo Switch games, while the Nintendo eShop Black Friday sales didn’t start until the official start of Black Friday. Amazon had Nintendo Switch deals throughout November
Start saving those money now, because so many great titles have been released on the Nintendo Switch since last year’s Black Friday sale including Mario Golf: Super Rush, New Pokémon Snap, Monster Hunter Rise, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 and many more. . If you haven’t played them yet, Black Friday 2021 could be your opportunity to get them on the cheap.
Will there be a Nintendo Switch Pro?
A new, more powerful Nintendo Switch console has been on the cards for a while, with a Bloomberg report that could arrive by September. With rumors about the Nintendo Switch Pro showing no signs of slowing down, many expect new Switch models to be announced at this year’s E3 conference (or at least at some point).
Nintendo finally announced a new Switch model, but it wasn’t the Nintendo Pro everyone was hoping for. This was the Nintendo Switch OLED, aside from a larger OLED display, Ethernet port, and better sound, which doesn’t have much different selling points than the current docked Switch.
Whether the Nintendo Switch Pro model is available on Black Friday or not, we can only wait and see. But with the OLED release in October, we don’t see Nintendo wanting to hurt the model’s potential sales by positioning a more powerful model ahead of it.
Nintendo Switch Black Friday Game Deals
The US outperformed the UK with Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals, especially from Amazon, Best Buy and GameStop, which had huge discounts on proprietary titles. Fire Emblem: Three Houses and Mario Tennis Aces costs $29.99 on Amazon, while the new Super Mario Bros. The U Deluxe was $34.99.
BestBuy slashed the prices of Luigi’s Mansion 3 and Super Mario Maker 2 each to $39.99, GameStop did the same for The Legend of Zelda: Lynx Awakening, while Yoshi’s Crafted World was also reduced to $29.99. Gave.
There were no major offers on Switch hardware, though the Nintendo Switch Lite dropped to $199.99 on Amazon in the US and UK, with UK buyers also receiving a free memory card. . We expect those prices to at least reappear or be beaten during this year’s Black Friday sale, especially since the Nintendo Switch OLED will be out by then.
We wouldn’t be surprised to see games bundled with the $200/£200 console entice purchases from new Switch buyers.
In the UK, most of the best Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals came on third-party titles from Amazon. Final Fantasy X/X-2 and Final Fantasy XII: The amount has been reduced to £19.99, while proprietary titles such as Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Lynx Awakening have dropped to £35 and £33, respectively. , £29.
You can redeem a code to get 25% off Nintendo Switch Memory Card offers on any title purchased from the Nintendo Store.
For this year’s Black Friday discount, as a benchmark of what to expect, using last year’s Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals, we’d expect all the titles we mentioned below to be down again by November. . Ubisoft has offered huge discounts throughout the year on titles like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Balan’s Wonderworld, and Watch Dogs: Legion, so they’ll reappear, too.
There are a lot of new titles coming to Nintendo Switch before November, so it’s possible that some of them will end up with small discounts, especially titles like Mario Party Superstar, WarioWare: Get It Together! and Ni No Kuni 2.
Nintendo Switch discontinues Black Friday accessories
Black Friday is always a great time to buy Nintendo Switch microSD cards, as these are regularly given out during promotions by many retailers (but notably Amazon). If you don’t already have one, you’re likely to need one by the time Black Friday arrives — or at least sometime in the future, even if you’re not a regular Switch player. The console only has 32 GB of internal storage space and most proprietary titles require a minimum of 10 GB of space!
If you’re looking for deals on the best microSD cards for Nintendo Switch, we’ve left a few links below.
Along with memory expansion, Amazon typically offers huge discounts on a variety of third-party accessories for the Nintendo Switch, like carrying cases, cleaning clothes, and brackets. We’ve also seen the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller appear in sales regularly, so it would be great to drop it down to around £40/$50 for this year’s Black Friday sale.
Offers Nintendo Switch Amiibo Black Friday
The hype for the amiibo is fading a bit now, and the only time a huge surge in demand is when a limited edition like the Metroid Dread amiibo is announced.
As such, we don’t expect big deals on Nintendo amiibo this year, although some retailers may use Black Friday as an opportunity to transfer leftover inventory of old action figures. Don’t expect discounts on something new like Zelda and Loftwing amiibo.
Ebonyment offers Nintendo Switch Online Black Friday
Nintendo Switch Online is probably a lot cheaper at £17.99 / $19.99 for an annual subscription, especially since you can access some of the best titles on the NES and SNES like Super Metroid and Super Mario World (and many others), but we won’t . Say no to the opportunity where we can grab it for less.
