It’s not exactly a secret that Black Friday is going to look very different this year than it normally is, but that doesn’t stop companies from advertising their Black Friday business. Today, Nintendo did just that, revealing the Nintendo Switch package that will be offered on Black Friday. If you’ve paid attention to Nintendo’s previous Switch packages, the one she prepared for Black Friday 2020 may seem a little familiar.
The package includes a Nintendo Switch, a code for a digital copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and a three-month subscription to Nintendo Switch Online. We’ve seen Mario Kart 8 Deluxe bundled with Nintendo Switch consoles many times in the past, and in fact, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe probably has to thank these packages for being one of the best selling games on the Switch.
The package will cost $ 299.99, which is the normal cost of a Switch on its own, so essentially what that means is that you are getting the game and subscription to Switch Online for free. There doesn’t seem to be any sales on the Nintendo Switch Lite, although Nintendo also confirmed today that the Animal Crossing: New Horizons Edition Switch will be available during Black Friday as well.
While Nintendo isn’t doing much to shake up its Go-to Switch package, it said there will be a series of original Switch games at a $ 20 discount in the Nintendo eShop. The list of games at this discount includes Super Mario Maker 2, Luigi’s Mansion 3, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Mario Tennis Aces, Yoshi’s Created World, Splatoon 2 and New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe.
Pokémon Let’s Go: Pikachu and Eevee will also have discounts during this Black Friday, although those titles have a $ 30 discount each. In addition to the original titles that Nintendo is discounting, we will also see a broader digital sale in the eShop, but details on that will come “at a later date”. This Nintendo Switch package will be available starting November 22, with Nintendo telling today to check with local retailers for more information.
