It’s midnight in the UK and we all know what that means. It’s actually Black Friday. Or at least what used to be called Black Friday since it has become the one day of the year that now lasts an entire month.
So we’ve seen a sudden explosion of Black Friday Nintendo Switch deals now it’s actually Friday? Erm.. no.. No, we don’t have that. Unless you consider this stinking generous £1 savings away at Very. Yes, you read that right. Very has an incredible £1 off Pokémon Scarlet (opens in a new tab)and actually £1 off Pokemon Violet (opens in a new tab) also – the latest Pokemon games, which were released just a week ago.

We are back. And there is good news and bad news. We’ll start with the latter, Switch console deals in the US are sparse to say the least. But the good news is that there are some great deals on popular games, which make a great Christmas present.
An outstanding deal is over at Amazon, where you can get Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga for $37.90 (opens in a new tab) – That’s over $22 off the retail price.
Suitable for ages seven and up, this is a fantastic choice not just for Star Wars fans, but for the whole family.
In the evening, it’s just past 10pm in the UK and we’ve been scouring the web for excellent Switch deals all day. And there have been some crackers so far, but loads of stock are now sold out and deals have already ended, so we’re back on the hunt for the best Switch prices on consoles, accessories and games this Black Friday.
Watch. We’ll grab a coffee and be back soon with more Switchy goodness.

Evening everyone, if you’re just joining us from the UK, you’re in for a treat. Amazon currently has the original Nintendo Switch, complete with Mario Kart and three months membership online for £259 (opens in a new tab).
So what’s the saving, we hear you ask? A Nintendo Switch retails for £259 on its own, so you’re effectively getting the game and online membership for free here. It’s no surprise to see that this is a bestseller on Amazon right now – grab one before they’re all gone.
OK, let’s be honest, the current crop of Nintendo Switch deals leaves a little to be desired. The truth is that there are deals on everything around the Switch – games and controllers, for example – but the console remains stubbornly untouched by discounts.
That is unless you’re looking at bundles. And the king of Nintendo Switch bundle deals remains this Nintendo Switch Neon Joy-Con + Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (GameDownload) + 3 Month Nintendo Switch Online Individual Membership for $299 at Best Buy (opens in a new tab).
It’s hands down the best deal we’re seeing on the console in the US right now…
UK buyers can get the white Switch OLED along with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and a 256GB Micro SD card for
£379 £359 at Currys (opens in a new tab) right now. Despite releasing alongside the Switch’s initial launch five years ago, Breath of the Wild is still hailed as one of the best games available on the Nintendo console.
Best Buy is coming through with some big savings on popular titles like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (opens in a new tab)Mario Party Superstars (opens in a new tab)Sonic Frontiers (opens in a new tab) and Animal Crossing: New Horizons (opens in a new tab). Each of these titles is currently a decent $20 off, and if you browse there’s a lot more where that came from.
These are pretty hardcore gamer headphones that can be used with any modern console and PC, so they’re a good choice for gamers who want to get the most out of Nintendo Switch games. Get the Razer Blackshark V2 gaming headset from Amazon now for
$99.99 $69.99 (opens in a new tab)and save you $30.
I’ve been keeping an eye out for any deals on the Nintendo Pro controller, but no retailer has dropped the price yet… So the next best brand to go for is PowerA. PowerA make some fantastic Nintendo licensed pads that are both stylish and feel good to use: I use one in place of the Pro pad and love it. Amazon currently has a couple of their designs discounted, including this Legend of Zelda pillow (opens in a new tab) and Mario pad (opens in a new tab)save up to $15 on each.
Similar to the deal we first reported on in this blog in the UK, you can currently get the Switch console along with Mario Kart 8 and 3 months of Nintendo Online membership for $299 at Best Buy. (opens in a new tab)
We’re traveling across the pond now to look at some US-based deals. If you’re heading over to Dell, you can currently pick up the white Switch OLED bundle with Splatoon 3 and a controller pad for $399 (opens in a new tab). Originally retailing for $439.99, this bundle will save you a smart $40.
The Nintendo Switch doesn’t have the largest amount of internal storage. The modest 32 GB is quickly eaten up if you play a lot of games, so to give yourself more room to play, an internal MicroSD is the way to go. Right now you can get the officially Nintendo licensed SanDisk 256GB MicroSD for
£77.99 £39.49 at Amazon (opens in a new tab)which makes it almost half price!
If you’re an avid Pokemon fan in the market for a shiny new Switch, then this is the deal for you! At the moment, Very has the white Switch OLED along with the brand new Pokemon Violet and Scarlet too
£389 £329 (opens in a new tab). Considering an OLED console usually costs £309 on its own, paying an extra £20 for two new game releases, normally worth £41.99 each, is a steal.
There are some great discounts on the best Nintendo Switch games right now, especially when it comes to the LEGO range. Below are our top picks of the best savings available right now from Amazon.
This deal is one we’ve seen quite often in recent days, but it’s still worth buying if you haven’t yet. Right now you can pick up the white Switch OLED with 3 games (Minecraft, Mario Kart 8, Animal Crossing) and a Nintendo licensed 256GB Micro SD for £399 (opens in a new tab). That’s only a saving of £30 off the RRP, but it’s a great starter if you’re looking for a Switch!

Starting on our live blog is an excellent offer from ao.com, which has the original Nintendo Switch console, with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Nintendo Switch Online for £259 (opens in a new tab).
The console itself retails for £259 on its own, so you basically get a game and an online membership for free. Add in super fast delivery and it’s arguably one of the best Switch deals in the UK right now.
