Astral Chain | $50
It's been around for a little while, but getting a copy of Astral Chain, PlatinumGames' new action game exclusive to Switch, for $50 is still a pretty good deal, especially considering it came out back in August.
Super Mario Maker 2 | $50

Splatoon 2 | $52
Though Splatoon 2 is more than two years old, it's still one of the very best multiplayer games on Switch. In addition to its highly entertaining online multiplayer suite, it has a pretty good single-player campaign and a fun cooperative mode. For Cyber Week, you can find Splatoon 2 on sale for $52 at Amazon.
Super Mario Party | $50
Every Nintendo console needs at least one Mario Party game to ruin friendships and cause emotional anguish at every unlucky break. Super Mario Party, while not one of the best games in the series, is still a good party game to play with friends and family. It has numerous different game modes and puts some fun spins on the classic board game format. Super Mario Party can only be played with one Joy-Con per person, so you may want to take advantage of the aforementioned Joy-Con deal if you pick up this game. Amazon, has digital copies of the game on sale for $50.
Octopath Traveler | $50
A lovingly-crafted ode to early-90s role-playing games, Octopath Traveler is one of the best turn-based games on Switch. The gorgeous art style features a clever blend of 2D sprites and 3D polygons and the combat is appropriately retro without feeling dated. Most of the Cyber Monday discounts are gone at this point, but you can get it at Walmart and Amazon for $50 right now.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition | $45
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt only recently released on Nintendo Switch, but you can save $15 at Walmart right now. Geralt's brilliant third adventure doesn't look quite as pretty on Switch, it's still amazing that you can bring this massive action-RPG on the go with you. Since it's the Complete Edition, you get all of the stellar DLC, too.
