This is the best-value Nintendo Switch bundle you’ll get before Christmas

A Switch and three top first-party games for £335: unbeatable

The Nintendo Switch has been selling so well that it doesn’t need to go cheap. In fact, even Black Friday sales knocked just £30 off the price – and I thought that was as good as it was going to get, advising a friend to get one there for his kids this Christmas. Now he’s eyeing up the price of games with a growing sense of dread.
 
Which is why this latest Switch deal is very hard to beat, and – with apologies to my friend – a better deal than we’ve seen so far this year. For £334.99, you get the Switch console along with three first-party and highly rated games: Super Mario Odyssey, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and the brand new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

I’ve played the former two of these extensively (a combined 100 hours, according to the Switch’s internal clock) and can vouch for them personally, but let’s get a second opinion anyway. Super Mario Odyssey got a glowing five-star review right here, and is currently averaging 97% of Metacritic. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe may be a remake of the Wii U version, but it comes with eight more courses and a 92% score on Metacritic as well. Smash Bros. Ultimate, which only came out three days ago, is averaging 93%. It’s incredibly rare to get three games of such high quality in a bundle: typically retailers try to pack in games that are, uh, selling less well, to put it kindly.
 
Each game rarely goes below £45 on its own, and the Switch retails for £280. So paying just £335 makes this an absolute bargain. If you’ve been eyeing up a Nintendo Switch for some time, then now is most definitely the moment to strike. I don’t imagine it’ll stay in stock for too long.
