The Nintendo Switch is getting a nice little discount for Black Friday over at Walmart as part of a bundle. And to be honest it feels like a deal that won’t last long. That’s because the Nintendo Switch deal is a bundle that comes with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and a 3-month individual membership to Nintendo Online for a $299 price tag. Normally this bundle costs $399. So you’re saving $100 while this deal is available. Which we expect to be no longer than this week.
As part of the bundle you also get the red and blue Joy-Con controllers, although these do normally come with the Switch outside of a bundle. So these aren’t extra. As for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, this is a digital full game download and not a physical copy of the game.
The Nintendo Switch is probably the easiest console to buy right now. While Nintendo has been feeling the constraints of the chip shortage like Sony and Microsoft, it seems to have had an easier time keeping its console in stock. That’s probably in part due to the fact that the console has been around a few more years and more stock was already on shelves. Still, it’s the price of this bundle that may go away and not necessarily the stock of the Switch itself.
All things considered, this is a really good price for an excellent console with a ton of really good games. Best of all is that you can play games on the Switch while hooked up to your TV with the dock. Or if you prefer, as a portable console with the Joy-Con controllers attached to the sides. Even if you already have or are planning to buy a PS5 or Xbox Series X|S, consider the Switch too if you don’t already have one. Especially at this price.
