Black Friday 2019: The Best Deals on Nintendo Switch Consoles, Games, and Accessories

Nintendo doesn't usually offer great deals on its games or consoles. It's actually rare to see sales on Nintendo games, but this Black Friday, major retailers will have some great discount on Switch games, as well as some bundle offers that are typical of the season. There are also a couple deals on accessories, notably the Pokemon: Lets Go Pokeball controller and some solid discounts on the normally expensive Joy-Cons.

From discounts on exclusives like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to a great Target sale on a Nintendo Online subscription, these are the best deals on Nintendo Switch games, consoles, and accessories this Black Friday.

DISCLAIMER: While some of these deals are live, many may not be available until a set time closer to Black Friday. Please bookmark this post for later use.

While Nintendo isn't offering any Switch Lite deals on Black Friday, there will be console bundles available at Walmart, Best Buy, Target and more retailers. For $300, gamers can get a Switch Lite bundle with either Mario Kart 8 Deluxe or Minecraft. The best deal for a Switch is at Kohl's, where they are selling Nintendo Switch bundle with carrying case, charging dock, and $90 Kohl's Cash for $320.

At Walmart, some of the flagship Switch exclusives are down to $30, including Super Mario Odyssey, Breath of the Wild, and Splatoon 2. The recently released Switch version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is on sale for $45 at Best Buy. And now is absolutely the best time to buy new Joy-Cons. According to the Black Friday ads Amazon and Target have them down to $53.60 for Black Friday, lower than the $60 they are going for at other retailers on the shopping holiday.

Switch Games Deals

Some of the best Nintendo games of all time are on Switch and many of them are on sale this Black Friday. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey are exciting, innovative entries in some of the longest-running franchises in video game history. Both can be found for $30. For retro gamers looking for games that remind them of the SNES era, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is a fantastic throwback 2D platformer and Octopath Traveler will surely rekindle that 16 bit JRPG nostalgia. Each of these are on sale for $40.

Some of 2019's biggest Switch exclusives like Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Super Mario Maker 2, and Luigi's Mansion 3 are not yet on sale. Be on the lookout for them when they likely go on sale next year.

Switch Accessory Deals

Nintendo's Joy-Con controllers are some of the most expensive on the market, generally retailing for $79.99. Amazon announced it would have Joy-Cons for 33% off this price tag, dropping the price to $53.60. If for some reason a Joy-Con purchased on Black Friday is experiencing controller drift, send it in to Nintendo. As that issue becomes more widespread, the manufacturer is willing to do free fixes and replacement.

Nintendo Switch Online is a good investment, especially $15 for a year, for any Switch player who wants to play Super Smash Bros. online or wants to share and play Mario Maker levels. It also gives all subscribers Tetris 99 for free and includes access to a library of NES and SNES games that can be downloaded and played on the Switch. The service isn't quite at the level of Microsoft and Sony's online services, but the significantly lower price point more than makes up for these shortcomings.

  • Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons (Gray or Neon Red/Blue) - Currently $66.99/Black Friday Price (beginning November 28): $53.60 at Amazon
  • Poke Ball Plus - Currently $42.49/Black Friday Price (beginning November 28): $20 at Amazon
  • Nintendo Switch Online 12-month subscription - Currently $19.99/Black Friday Price (beginning November 28): $15 at Target
