9 Nintendo Switch Exclusives Are $35 Ahead Of Prime Day

Target's Circle Week sale include Super Mario Odyssey, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Pikmin 4, Splatoon 3, Breath of the Wild, and more.


Target Circle Week is winding down, but there's still time to snag some of the best Nintendo Switch game deals of the year. Through tomorrow, July 13, nine Nintendo Switch exclusives are on sale for only $35. That's a savings of $25 on each game, and most of the eligible titles are rarely on sale for this low of a price. To secure these deals, you'll need to sign up for Target Circle, if you aren't already a member of the free rewards program. Target's sale is running mere days before Amazon Prime Day, so make sure to check GameSpot's Prime Day hub for even more deals over the weekend and through the main event (July 16-17).

Target Circle Week: Nintendo Switch exclusives

Physical and digital editions available at $35 price

As for Switch games, notable games on sale for $35 include The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, Pikmin 4, Kirby and the Forgotten Land, and more. Switch titles don't often see discounts this generous, so be sure to give them a look if you're yet to play these classics. And if you're looking for some cooperative fun for the summer, you can snag New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe for $35, as the platformer lets four friends jump around in local play.

Fortunately, Target has included both the physical and digital versions of the Switch games in this sale. So if you prefer digital games, you can purchase a key from Target that can be redeemed on the Switch eShop. If you opt for physical, your local Target store possibly has same-day delivery or pickup.

Walmart was also hosting an early Prime Day sale that ended on July 11. If you didn't have a chance to check it out, you're in luck: Walmart still has two of its best Switch deals from the sale. The Nintendo Switch Lite Animal Crossing bundle is available for $159 (was $200). This special-edition turquoise handheld is exclusive to Walmart and comes with a copy of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. If you're buying one of the Switch games above and want extra controllers for multiplayer, the Super Mario Party Joy-Con bundle is still up for grabs for $69 (was $100). This official Nintendo bundle comes with red and blue controllers and a copy of Super Mario Party.

Speaking of Mario, you can save big on two of the largest Lego Super Mario building sets ahead of Prime Day. Lego Bowser's Airship (1,152 pieces) is discounted to only $70 at Walmart, while Lego Diddy Kong's Mine Cart Ride (1,157 pieces) is down to only $82.50 (was $110) at Amazon and Walmart.

Once you're done checking out all the cheap Switch games and Lego sets, take a few minutes to dive into Target's buy two, get one free promotion on select video games, movies, books, and more. You can mix and match across all categories, too. Nintendo fans might want to fill their cart with books centered on The Legend of Zelda. All of Dark Horse's official art and lore books are included in both Amazon's and Target's B2G1 free book sections. We put together a handy list of Zelda books at Amazon below:
