Black Friday Nintendo Switch deals are the perfect opportunity to pick up Nintendo’s wildly popular hybrid handheld/console and score discounts on the best Nintendo Switch games and accessories to enhance your experience.
Nintendo Switch discounts are often lacking, and the Switch’s popularity means that it’s held onto the original price tag for several years. Not even the rumored launch of the Nintendo Switch 2 can do much about that. So Black Friday is the perfect opportunity to flesh out your library, or grab a Switch console for less than the usual price.
You don’t need to wait for the big day either. There are already plenty of early Black Friday Nintendo Switch deals already offering big savings on hardware bundles, incredible games and essential accessories.
We’re also flagging deals in all sorts of other categories, should you be in the need for other money savings bargains. Be sure to check out our Black Friday deals page for all the best discounts from the sales season, and the Black Friday gaming deals for discounts on non-Nintendo gaming products.

Nintendo Switch OLED (Mario Red Edition): $348 @ Amazon
If you're after a Switch OLED by itself, check out this version of the console in Mario Red — released to coincide with the release of Super Mario Wonder. Just note that it doesn't come with any games of Switch Online subscriptions.
Nintendo Switch (Mario Kart 8 Bundle): $299 @ Best Buy
If OLED isn't for you, then there's always the classic Nintendo Switch Black Friday bundle — complete with a copy of Mario Kart 8 and 3 months of Nintendo Switch Online. That's the same price as the console normally costs on its own, and perfect if you still don't have a Switch or Mario Kart.
Nintendo Switch Lite: $199 @ Best Buy
Scrap the dock and the removable controller and you have the Nintendo Switch Lite — a handheld only version of the costume that's rather good value if you don't want to play on the TV. We've seen this go as low as $179 in sales of the past, so it may be worth waiting a little longer if you can.
Nintendo Switch Lite (Isabelle's Aloha Edition): $199 @ Target
If you're a big Animal Crossing fan, then this Switch Lite variant might be for you. It comes in a coral hue with unique Animal Crossing artwork — plus a full copy of New Horizons.

The sequel to 2017's Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, Sparks of Hope reunites the Mushroom Kingdom with the crazy Rabbids for another colorful strategy adventure. It's one of the most overlooked games on Switch, and at this price you can't afford to miss out.

Witcher 3 Wild Hunt (Complete Edition): was $59 now $42 @ Amazon
Easily one of the best games of the past decade, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt offers an open world fantasy realm for you to explore through the eyes of Geralt of Rivia. It's an odd choice for the Switch, but it does play incredibly well, and the Complete Edition includes the first game and two extensive DLC packs. Plus, at this price you won't need Jaskier/Dandelion to write a song to help you afford it.
Lego Star Wars The Skywalker Saga: was $59 now $29 @ Best Buy

You've got the option to play intense 4x4 online battles, team up fore the Salmon Run co-op mode or work your way through the solo Campaign.
Sonic Frontiers: was $59 now $39 @ Amazon|
Gotta go fast! Sonic the Hedgehog is back for another adventure, though this time he's heading out into an open world adventure with his ragtag group of pals. It's a bit of a departure from the Sonic games of old, but that's probably a good thing — especially since the story has been given a much-needed boost.
Super Mario Maker 2: was $59 now $39 @ Walmart
Why wait for Nintendo to make new Mario games when you can just build your own? Joined by Luigi this time round, you and Mario can build your own 2D Mario levels — complete with styles from a bunch of different Mario games.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus: was $59 now $47 @ Walmart
This one is a little different from the Pokémon games you're used to, but it's definitely a good thing. Travel back to the olden times back before humans and Pokémon were so close, in a quest through a much wilder world for an elusive Pokémon Arceus.
Pokémon Shining Pearl: was $59 now $30 @ GameStop

New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe: was $59 now $49 @ Target
Join Mario and his friends in this side-scrolling adventure, either by yourself or with up to three friends. This may be a remake of the 2012 Wii U title, but it still offers over 160 levels — and the New Super Luigi U expansion pack. So this should provide hours of fun.
Nintendo Switch Accessories deals
Super Mario Party + Red & Blue Joy-Con Bundle: $99 @ Amazon
If you need a new pair of colorful Joy-Cons and a party to play with friends or family, then check this out. With controllers that match Mario's iconic red and blue fashion sense and a copy of Super Mario Party, it should prove to be a hit over the Holidays. And at $99 you're saving around $39 compared to buying these separately.
SanDisk 128GB Memory Card: was $34 now $13 @ Amazon
The Switch doesn't have a great deal of storage space, so boost your system up with an extra 128GB of storage. That's twice as much as the 64GB Switch OLED and 4 times more than the regular Switch's 32GB. Plus with data transfer of up to 100MB/s, you shouldn't have any problems running games from this.
SanDisk 256GB Memory Card: was $99 now $22 @ Best Buy
Of course 128GB may not be enough, in which case there's always 256GB — and for just $9 more. That's a heck of a lot of Switch games to download from the eShop. And stylized with a golden star from Mario.
SanDisk 1TB Memory Card: was $149 now $99 @ Amazon
If you find yourself wanting more storage than you know what to do with, may we present this 1TB microSD card deal at Amazon. 1TB of space is more than most phones and laptops, so you can probably fit every Switch game you'd hope to ever play and will have room left over. It also comes deck in Zelda-themed artwork.
Nintendo Switch Pro Controller: $69 @ Walmart
If the Joy-Cons don't cut it for you, then the Switch pro controller is a solid alternative. It's rarely on sale, even over the Black Friday period, but it's still a solid option with a comfortable design, motion controls HD rumble and amiibo support. Then again we may see some discounts as Black Friday draws in, so it might be worth holding out a little longer.
Hori Wireless HoriPad (Legend of Zelda): was $59 now $34 @ Woot
If you'd rather have a controller that's a little cheaper, there's always the wireless HoriPad — this time stylized after the Legend of Zelda franchise. This controller is light and ergonomic, complete with motion controls and an official Nintendo Licence.
8BitDo SN30 Pro wired controller: was $29 now $17 @ Amazon
If you need a controller that's cheap and cheerful, but with a retro flair, 8BitDo has you covered. This silver gamepad is clearly meant to look like an old SNES controller, but with all the modern buttons that Switch games actually need.
What Black Friday Nintendo Switch deals should you expect in 2023?
Despite releasing more than almost seven years ago the Nintendo Switch has kept a very stable price. However, we have seen price cuts during major sales events, and we expect to see the same during Black Friday 2023.
Often, Black Friday Nintendo Switch deals tend to revolve around bundles. In previous years, shoppers have been able to grab a Nintendo Switch with a game or accessory throw-in for free. The premium Nintendo Switch OLED was also discounted for the first time during last year's Black Friday sales.
Meanwhile, the cheaper Nintendo Switch Lite has a solid record of being discounted even outside of sales events, but the best deals are usually reserved for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Expect the exclusively handheld gaming device to be dropped in price this holiday season.
It won’t just be Nintendo Switch hardware that is discounted for Black Friday. Nintendo Switch games are notorious for holding their price long after launch, but dozens of the best Nintendo Switch games will be slashed throughout the sales period. Plus, accessories like carrying cases, extra controllers, and screen protectors will also receive discounts.
