Black Friday 2019 Nintendo Switch Deals: Games, Joy-Cons, And More

See what deals Nintendo's offering during Black Friday this year.

1 Comments

Like many companies, Nintendo has detailed some of its Black Friday 2019 deals ahead of the holiday's November 29 date. You'll be hard-pressed to find a great deal on Switch consoles outside of a Mario Kart 8 Deluxe bundle we already saw last year, but Nintendo is offering discounts on some of its games (many of which rarely see discounts otherwise), as well as some first-party accessories. Nintendo's Black Friday page also says to "check back soon for more deals," which means more deals are on the way in the lead-up to the Black Friday.

We'll certainly be seeing an Eshop sale that will discount digital Switch games, presumably along with those for 3DS. In fact, Nintendo's Black Friday Eshop sale has already been previewed for Europe and includes the expected discounts on a mix of first- and third-party games. Among them are Super Mario Odyssey, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Cadence of Hyrule, and Dragon Quest Builders 2, all of which will be 30% off.

Microsoft, Best Buy, and Target have also revealed the sales they'll have ready for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, so make sure to check those out if you're shopping around.

In terms of Nintendo's official lineup of deals, first up is an assortment of Nintendo Switch games. Normally sold for $60, the following games will be available for $40 (33% off) at Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, Target, and Walmart starting Wednesday, November 27:

While Nintendo's page says these games will be available for $40, Target's Black Friday ad claims the store will offer The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Tennis Aces, and Super Mario Odyssey for only $30 each as limited-time doorbuster deals. Also, please note that more games may be on sale as well, but the Nintendo website only confirms the above titles. Finally, if you prefer to buy games digitally, the Nintendo Eshop's deals will likely be revealed at a later date.

Nintendo Switch Joy-Con controllers are also getting a discount during Black Friday. Normally sold for $80 a pair, you'll be able to pick up a new pair of either gray or neon red and blue Joy-Cons for $60 (25% off). This offer will be available at Amazon, Best Buy, and Target starting Wednesday, November 27.

For those who play Pokemon Go or the Pokemon: Let's Go Switch games, the Poke Ball Plus is a handy accessory for storing and catching Pokemon. It also comes with Mew, a mythical Pokemon that you can transfer into Pokemon: Let's Go, Pikachu or Pokemon: Let's Go, Eevee. Normally sold for $50, the Poke Ball Plus will be on sale for just $20 (60% off) at Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, Target, and Walmart starting Thursday, November 28.

Finally, if you were hoping for a price drop on the Nintendo Switch itself, you might be out of luck. Nintendo is offering the Switch bundled with a free digital copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for its full price of $300. If you have a good memory, you might recall this is the exact same bundle offered during Black Friday 2018. The difference this year, however, is that an upgraded Switch model with better battery life has since been released, but this particular bundle includes the original model without that improvement.

That said, if you're interested in Mario Kart and don't mind forgoing the extra battery life, this is still a solid deal. While not included in Nintendo's Black Friday game deals, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe usually goes for around $50 on Amazon and elsewhere, so you're saving a good wad of cash on this bundle. The console deal will be available at Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, Target, and Walmart starting Thursday, November 28.

A free game is NOT worth getting a Switch with worse battery life. Ridiculous that Nintendo won't discount this console after this long.
