Nintendo Switch Black Friday Bundle Deal Available Soon, Comes With A Great Game
Get a system and a download of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for $300.
Black Friday is approaching very quickly, but many retailers and video game publishers alike have already begun offering some great deals on consoles, games, and other accessories. If you're in the market for a Nintendo Switch or plan on purchasing the hybrid console for a loved one this holiday season, Nintendo has announced a new bundle that packs the system with a great title.
On Black Friday, November 23, you'll be able to get a Nintendo Switch bundled with a digital copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for $300--the same price the console by itself typically runs for. This means you'll get one of the system's best multiplayer games effectively for free. Considering that very few discounts on the system itself have been announced--and those that have typically sell out almost immediately--this will likely be your best choice for picking one up.
Much like the original Wii U version, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe supports a variety of control options, from the Switch Pro Controller to motion controls using the packed-in Joy-Cons. To help with the latter, Nintendo will also begin selling a new set of white Joy-Con Wheel accessories this Black Friday. Each set runs for $15 and comes with two wheels, which feature a slot that house your Joy-Con.
If you already own a Switch and are looking for some new games to get, Nintendo has kicked off its own Black Friday-like cyber sale in the Eshop. The sale encompasses a number of recent releases for the console, including Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Starlink: Battle for Atlas, and Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate.
That isn't the only hardware bundle Nintendo is offering this Black Friday. The company will also sell a limited-edition yellow-and-red 2DS for $80. The console comes pre-installed with Super Mario Maker, a robust toolset that allows you to create your own Super Mario levels.
Switch Black Friday deals aren't quite as plentiful as those for PS4 and Xbox One, but you'll also be able to get discounts on some great Switch games from various retailers. You can find them in our roundup of all the Switch game, console, and accessories deals. For even more discounts, be sure to check out our full Black Friday deals coverage.
