Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals: The best discounts on Switch and Switch Lite consoles

Black Friday is here and there’s no better time to buy a Nintendo Switch or Switch Lite

There’s a reason Nintendo Switch deals are always in such high demand come Black Friday. Nintendo’s best games console in years has exclusive access to a wide range of top-tier games such as Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Mario Kart and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, not to mention that its plug and play design is perfect for on-the-go gaming. The downside to this feverish popularity, of course, is that the Nintendo Switch rarely goes on sale.

There is a shining ray of hope, however. If you’re in the market for a new Nintendo Switch or Switch Lite, then now might be the time to scoop up an excellent saving. With this year’s Black Friday already in full swing, a handful of UK retailers have dropped prices across a wide range of Nintendo Switch and Switch Lite bundles.

Even still, it can be tricky to separate the wheat from the chaff. Below, we’ve picked out the very best Black Friday bargains, so whether you’re after a Nintendo Switch or Switch Lite, we’ve got your back.

The best Black Friday Nintendo Switch deals

1. Nintendo Switch/Switch Lite bundles (£268/£348)

This is undoubtedly the best Nintendo Switch deal we’ve seen so far this Black Friday, and it comes straight from Nintendo itself. Simply pick a Switch or Switch Lite console, then choose one of the latest games, a 12-month Nintendo Online subscription, an accessory and a 64GB microSD card and pay a set sum of £268/£348 – saving you around £40.

2. Nintendo Switch with Super Mario 3D All-stars (Was £330, now £310)

Without question, this Super Mario 3D All-stars bundle is the best deal we’ve come across so far. To put it nicely (and without naming names) most Nintendo Switch bundle deals include not-so-flashy games, but Super Mario 3D All-stars comes with three top-notch games in one: remastered versions of Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario Galaxy. Compared to £330 when purchased separately, this Mario-rich Switch bundle is as good as it gets.

3. Nintendo Switch Lite with Animal Crossing and Minecraft (Was £264, now £239)

If you aren’t fussed about Mario (what’s wrong with you?), or you don’t want to connect your Switch to the TV, then this Switch Lite bundle could be just the ticket. Paired with two games, the ever-popular Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Minecraft, you can save £25 (if you don’t mind the turquoise colour).

4. Nintendo Switch with Ring Fit Adventure and case (Was £365, now £350)

Something for the lockdown fitness fanatics, this Nintendo Switch bundle comes with Ring Fit Adventure, all of the accessories and a carry case (worth £20). Considering Ring Fit Adventure is out of stock at a variety of retailers, this is one of the few places you can buy one (the £15 saving is just an added bonus).

5. Nintendo Switch Lite with free Mario beanie (£200)

If you’d rather buy games separately, or perhaps prefer a physical freebie instead, then you might want to consider this Switch Lite deal. The same price as the console on its own, the folks at Game are also throwing in a free Mario beanie (worth £10). Perfect for displaying your inner Nintendo geekdom as the temperature drops.
