The Black Friday deals have started their engines and thanks to this bundle you can nab yourself a great deal on Nintendo’s console of the moment packaged with a game that’s an instant hit at any social gathering.

Head over to Walmart or Best Buy and you can nab yourself a Nintendo Switch along with a copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for $299.99. If you’re willing to head to a brick and mortar store, Gamestop will do a similar bundle but throw in a $25 gift card too.

Before jumping in with a purchase, though, it’s important to note that this is the older Nintendo Switch model and a digital copy of the game. The newer Switch has improved battery life, so if you’re thinking about taking your console on-the-go a lot then that’s something to consider. Or, you could instead plump for a Nintendo Switch Lite for $199.99.

It may be one of the Switch’s oldest titles at this point, but Mario Kart 8 Deluxe remains a must-buy in any Nintendo Switch owner’s arsenal, with every track from the Wii U version and its DLC, all your favourite characters including Mario, Bowser, Peach and King Boo to name but a few, and new characters the Inklings from Splatoon.

If you want some more games to go with your new console, then you can also find a lot of first-party releases on sale this Black Friday. May we recommend The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for $39.99, Super Mario Odyssey for $39.99 or Mario Tennis Aces for $39.99?

More Nintendo Switch games are certain to come down in price by Black Friday itself, so make sure you keep our Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals hub bookmarked for the best deals this bargain bonanza season.
