In a clever piece of date punnery, Nintendo has declared 10th March as Mario Day. It’s ‘MAR 10’ – geddit? It’s a stretch, sure, but we’ll take it if that means discounts on some top Switch games, accessories and more related Mario merch.

Leading the way this Mario Day is a handful of Switch games starring one of the top eight soft boys in gaming that are now down to $39.99. The four games on sale are Super Mario Maker 2, Super Mario Party, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 and Yoshi’s Crafted World. Super Mario Odyssey is mysteriously absent! Still, these offers are available at all the major retailers, so it’s up to you where to shop.

On top of this, although not a price cut, Target is running a promotion that will give you a free pair of Nintendo Switch Joy-Con Steering Wheels when you buy Mario Kart 8.

Elsewhere, the Mario Day celebrations have also been extended to a range of accessories and merch. The goods vary depending on the retailer, but it’s Best Buy where you’ll find the most comprehensive offering. There are Switch controllers, cases and a whole wardrobe full of clothing at up to half price. Check out the full range or some of our top picks below:

Those are just some of the Mario Day offers I’ve managed to track down so far. All will be available until 14th March. Perhaps there will be more tomorrow when the party begins proper. You have to assume that Nintendo will likely do something more through their store, too. I’ll be sure to update the page should anything else go live.
