Some Great Nintendo Switch Games Are On Sale Right Now In The US

Long live the Switch.

13 Comments

Amazon is running some fantastic video game deals. Better yet, many of the discounts are on Nintendo Switch games that don't go on sale very often, so if you have a Switch it's definitely worth looking at these deals to see if you want to add any of the games to your collection. But seeing as Amazon doesn't have regular weekly sales, it's anyone's guess how long the discounts will last.

Let's start with the heavy-hitters. Anyone who hasn't picked up Super Mario Odyssey or The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild can do so now for $45 each. As you probably know, those are must-own games for anyone with a Switch, and now they're 25% off. Nintendo games are famous for staying full price long after release, so this is a great time to get them.

No Caption Provided

Normally $40, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is on sale for $35. It may be another Wii U re-release on Switch, but that doesn't lessen this puzzle game's charm and low-key brilliance. You play as the titular character (who can't even jump) as you try to unlock the secrets of increasingly complicated levels. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Mario Tennis Aces are also $45 each. Hack-and-slash fans can pick up Fire Emblem Warriors for just $36.

In non-Switch news, the PS4 exclusive God of War is also down to $45. It's one of the best games of the year, and now's a good time to play it before the avalanche of fall PS4 games begins. You can also grab the recent action-RPG Vampyr for $40.

There's not much in the way of Xbox One games on sale on Amazon, but you can check out the big weekly sale on the Microsoft Store.

Fire Emblem Warriors must be on its way out. I noticed it was being sold at a steep discount at GameStop, too.

@dzimm: Wrong. As usual. It's $15 a year for 2 years. And, the coupons you get alone is worth the price. Hell, you buy two $60 games, you saved $24. So you net $9 already. Proving your comment to be eye-rolling ignorance.

@zzmovie: Huh, you're right... at least about the cost. I saw the price and had assumed that it was a yearly subscription.

I have long sense given up on physical games. This is even more important on a portable machine. But Nintendo's lack of digital sales may make me regret this choice.

@TrueLink: I don’t buy digital games on my Switch ever. Sure it’s more convenient but as soon as the next Nintendo console is released your digital purchases will be null and void. At least on my Xbox they’ll be tied to my account and I’ll be able to easily access them from other current consoles and/or future consoles.

@boardsport311: Amen to this. ALSO, digital games have no value, while PHYSICAL games like BOTW and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe are worth $30 and more. My physical library is worth over $10,000 cash. My digital? Zero point zero.

And my physical library looks so damn sexy on a shelf.

@ssrbvegeta: The summer sale for UK featured Arms, Mario Kart, Splatoon and other major releases. The US got indie games and RE only.
