The best Prime Day Nintendo Switch deals are still here, though some savings on game titles and accessories have dried up. Nevertheless, in the remaining hours of Prime Day, you can still find lower prices on many of the essentials for Nintendo's home console/handheld hybrid — all while building your library. Nintendo Switch sales are always some of the most popular Prime Day deals during the annual sales holiday, so don't miss out.

The Nintendo Switch console itself rarely goes on sale, and the odds of a price cut for the latest Nintendo Switch OLED model are even more remote. However, the cheaper Nintendo Switch Lite has been known to be discounted during major sales events. Plus, we've seen compelling Switch bundles in previous years packing in either games or eShop credit.

That said, a wide assortment of Nintendo Switch games and Nintendo Switch accessories remain discounted for Prime Day. This includes must-play games starting from just $15. Alongside boosting your gaming collection, Prime Day is also the perfect opportunity to get your Switch kitted out in all the essential extras.
