Nintendo has launched a new 2019 holiday deals website featuring savings on Switch console bundles, games and accessories.
The bargains begin with a new Nintendo Switch bundle that includes a download code for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. It’s available from Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, Target and Walmart from November 28, and is priced at $299 in the US and $399 in Canada. This means the game is effectively free, although it’s worth noting that the console is the original HAC-001 model which has a slightly shorter battery life.
Starting from November 28, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey are discounted to $39.99 in the US and $59.99 in Canada. In the US, a wider selection of titles, including Splatoon 2, Super Mario Party and Octopath Traveler will also be discounted by 33% at retail.
Joy-Con controllers are also reduced in both countries, to $59.99 in the US and 79.99 in Canada. And there’s a 60% price cut for the Poké Ball Plus accessory in the US.
Speaking about the holiday promotions, Nintendo of Canada’s Dominic Gross says:
“With Nintendo Switch, parents are not just giving a gift to their kids – they are providing fun for the whole family who love to play together. Families who have been waiting to pick up a Nintendo Switch system have the perfect opportunity on Black Friday to take advantage of one of our many offers and add some Nintendo fun to their holiday plans.”
Warms the heart, doesn’t it? Head over to the Nintendo Holiday Gift Guide 2019 website for full details. The deals run until January 1, 2020.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
