The Nintendo Switch and its best games firmly hold their price most of the time. This is why I spend all year looking forward to Black Friday Nintendo Switch deals. The sales event offers the rare chance to pick up a Switch console or a selection of its best games at a significantly reduced price.
I’m happy to report that this year’s crop of Black Friday sales aren’t disappointing on this front. I’ve already spotted several Switch deals that are heavily testing my resolve not to buy any more games this year (My backlog has gotten out of control in 2023). Some of the best Nintendo Switch games are on sale including The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope.
Plus, if you don’t already own a Switch now is a great time to join the family as there's a range of Nintendo-created bundles that include a console and a game. Here are the Black Friday Switch deals that I recommend you buy right now.
