Nintendo has recently revealed its Black Friday offers for the year. While there are no direct cash discounts on Switch hardware, the company offers a new Switch OLED bundle including the $350 console with a digital copy of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and a three-month individual Nintendo Switch Online subscription for no extra cost. The console’s Joy-Con controllers have a Smash Bros.-themed design. This bundle is accessible at various retailers, including Walmart, Target, GameStop, Best Buy, and Nintendo’s own online store.
Nintendo’s primary Switch bundle for Black Friday 2023 pairs the OLED version of the console with the well-known fighting game Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and a three-month individual subscription to Switch Online. It costs $349 at Walmart. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate typically retails in the $50 to $60 range and the Switch Online membership goes for $8, so that’s about what you’re saving here. Although Ultimate was released in 2018, Nintendo has discounted a number of its own Switch titles, including Luigi’s Mansion 3 priced down to $40, Kirby and the Forgotten Land at a new low of $42, and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze down to a new low of $30. Other popular games and deals are mentioned in the article as well.
The Nintendo eShop is running a “Cyber Deals” sale through December 3, with Portal Companion Collection for $6.79, Spiritfarer for $7.49, The Messenger for $5, and more all matching the lowest prices to date for the Switch versions of these games.
The article warns readers that we may be nearing the end of the Switch’s life cycle and suggests that if they aren’t dying to catch up on Switch games they missed, it might be wise to wait for more substantial discounts on the consoles.
