If you’ve been thinking of waiting until Black Friday to pick up a Nintendo Switch then Currys PC World may sway your decision with their latest Nintendo Switch Pokémon Sword or Shield bundle.

Right now, you can get a Nintendo Switch with Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield for £279. That’s easily the best Nintendo Switch deal we’ve seen for some time!

And if you were worried about the price going even lower for Black Friday (I honestly don’t think it will) then you’re protected by their ‘Black Friday Now’ guarantee. They’ll simply refund you the difference if there’s a lower offer on the day.

Now, if you consider that a Nintendo Switch usually costs £279 on its own, this bundle comes with Pokémon Sword or Shield completely free. I had my eyes peeled for this sort of Nintendo Switch Black Friday offer on the day proper – not two weeks before!

As for the game itself, Alex came away with mixed feelings in the VG247 Pokémon Sword and Shield review. It’s a game that’s “ambitious in places, seemingly unfinished in others”.

If you’d prefer the Nintendo Switch Lite instead, you can also find a bundle featuring the smaller console and Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield for £219. That means you’ll be paying £20 for the latest GameFreak RPG on top of the £199 regular price for a Switch Lite. Not a bad offer, then!

Will this be beaten on Black Friday? It seems unlikely. While Nintendo has remained relatively quiet about what Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals they’ll be running this year, we do know that those in the US will be getting Mario Kart 8 Deluxe bundle for $299. Unfortunately, though, this seems to be old stock of the previous Switch model with reduced battery life.

Whatever happens on the day and in the weeks before, we’ll be bringing you all the best Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals right here. You can also find our hub pages dedicated to any PS4 Black Friday offers and Xbox One Black Friday bargains.
