Mario Day is an annual celebration of the iconic mustached plumber, and for 2023 Nintendo and its retailer partners are pulling out all the stops by offering seriously big savings on several of the best Nintendo Switch games.
Officially taking place on Friday, March 10 (get it, Mar10), Mario Day will be bigger than ever this year. But you don’t need to wait until then to start scoring some excellent discounts on must-play Switch games. You can get ahead of the game by picking up some cheap Nintendo Switch titles right now including Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for $39 and Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope for $29 both courtesy of Amazon.
Plus, if you’re looking to become part of the Switch family, there will be an exclusive Mario Day bundle available via the Nintendo Store (and select retailers) but this won't go live until the day itself.
