If you don’t already have a Nintendo Switch or 2DS, then the Nintendo Black Friday sale will be of interest.
Black Friday. Friday after Thanksgiving. Big sales. Crazy stampedes. Very brash. Very American. Spread to the rest of the world.
Now that we’ve got all of the exposition and introduction out of the way, here’s what you came for: the Nintendo Black Friday sale.
First up, there’s a Nintendo Switch bundle including Mario Kart Deluxe 8., for $299.99 US Well, specifically that’s a download code for Mario Kart 8, but still; that’s a 300-dollar console and a 60-dollar game for just the price of the console. This bundle will be available on Black Friday itself, while stocks last, from Amazon, Best Buy, Gamestop, Target, and Walmart.
Second, there’s a Nintendo 2DS bundle, including Super Mario Maker, for $79.99 US. Unlike the Switch bundle, this one comes with Super Mario Maker already pre-installed on the handheld. The Nintendo 2DS Super Mario Maker Edition – to give it its full name – is available from the same retailers as the Switch bundle, and like the other bundle, kicks off on Black Friday and is only available while stocks last.
That’s it. Just the two bundles. And these deals are only available in the US.
There is one extra treat, though: you can purchase any two Labo kits for $99 US, from Best Buy, through to December 1st, 2018.
Now that’s it. Be sure to watch this space for more Black Friday deals.
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.
