If you think today is any ordinary Friday, think again. It's a worldwide day of celebration for everyone's favorite mustachioed movie star. Yes, we're talking about Mario of Super Mario fame. Today is Mario Day because March 10 = MAR10. To celebrate the annual holiday, there are a bunch of discounts on Nintendo Switch games, a special Nintendo Switch bundle, and plenty more.
All of the official Mario Day deals below are available through tomorrow, March 11, so you don't have much time to make your picks.
Mario Day promotions are essentially mini-Black Friday sales only featuring Nintendo (mainly Super Mario) products. That means you can get a variety of Nintendo Switch exclusives for $40, a price rarely seen for most of the games on offer.
Basically every major Mario game for Switch is discounted for Mario Day. If you're looking for a traditional Mario platformer, the trifecta of Super Mario Odyssey, Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury, and New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe are up for grabs. Alternatively, you can make your own Mario fun with Super Mario Maker 2 or race against other Mushroom Kingdom residents in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The latest wave of Booster Course Pass tracks were just added on March 9, so now's a great time to pick up the kart racer.
In addition to the console bundle and game deals, you can also save on Switch accessories like controllers and carrying cases. Meanwhile, new Super Mario Bros. Movie-themed toys are available at major retailers, too. Speaking of the movie, you can purchase your tickets now ahead of the animated film's April 5 release.
