Here we go! Mario Day (aka MAR10) is officially here and retailers are getting a jump-start on Nintendo's made-up holiday with a slew of Mario Day sales. 

The annual holiday is a celebration of our favorite mustached plumber. However, Mario Day has now become synonymous with Nintendo sales. From Nintendo Switch deals to discounts on our favorite Nintendo games, Mario Day is an excellent time for stock up on Nintendo games and gear. (We probably won't see this many gaming discounts till the next Amazon Prime Day).

Some of the best Mario Day sales right now are discounts on Nintendo Switch games. Many titles are at least $10 off at retailers like Amazon, Walmart, and Best Buy. Mario Day sales on the Nintendo Switch console are a little harder to come by. Instead, we're seeing bundle deals that save you about $15. 

As for the Switch Lite, it remains unscathed. But we'll make sure to update our story with any new Mario Day sales in the coming days. In the meantime, here are the best Mario Day sales you can get right now.
