Nintendo Switch Bundles: Our Buying Tips
Nintendo Switch bundles: How to spot a good deal
Just because Nintendo Switch bundles are cheap might not mean they’re good deals. Many retailers often include cheaper games with their Nintendo Switch bundles and still charge the standard price. Games readily available for $20-$30 can sneak up on premium-priced deals, reducing the overall value proposition.
In this case, it’s worth picking up a Nintendo Switch bundle with a full game for $60 and getting the cheaper title separately if you desperately want to play it. For this reason, it’s always worth checking the going price of the bundled game you choose against the total cost to make sure you’re getting a good deal. Nintendo Switch sales outside of busy shopping periods (Black Friday or holidays) are more likely to try this tactic.
The best games in the Nintendo Switch bundle
As mentioned above, first-party releases are the games you’ll want to look out for for the best Nintendo Switch bundle deals. These games are developed and produced by Nintendo themselves, that is the likes of Mario Kart, Mario Party, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Metroid, Pokémon, etc.
Since these titles aren’t much lower than their usual price (even years after launch), your best option for getting them on the cheap is as part of a Nintendo Switch bundle. We’ve seen games actually get discounts of up to 50% when you buy them as part of a bundle.
When to shop for Nintendo Switch deals
The best Nintendo Switch deals are usually found around the holiday period. You’ll find that the biggest games of the year are released between October and December, which gives bundles a higher value when those games are included at a discount. However, a new Nintendo Switch bundle generally appears with any major first-party release. We’ll be looking for any Pokemon Scarlett and Violet shows now that they’re released.
Nintendo Switch Lite
The Nintendo Switch Lite was released at just $199.99 / £199.99 in 2019. That’s $100 / £80 less than the original Switch console. If you want to play games on your TV as well, you should use the standard Nintendo Switch instead, as the Lite can only be played in handheld mode.
Nintendo Switch Lite comes in multiple color options. You can pick one up now in turquoise, gray, yellow, or coral pink, as well as a special Pokemon Zacian & Zamazenta edition. We have a larger hub dedicated to all the best Nintendo Switch Lite bundles if you want to check it out in more detail.
Nintendo Switch Game Deals
Looking for something to play? Some newer Nintendo Switch bundles may not offer the game you want to get into first. If not, use the price comparison chart below to find the cheapest Switch titles out there, or head over to our larger guide to find more cheap Nintendo Switch games. Remember, to play online multiplayer and get other benefits like free games, you’ll want to get a Nintendo Switch Online subscription deal as well.
If you’re looking for more multiplayer options, you might want to check out the latest Joy-Con deals. These controllers come in at $10 more expensive than the Pro controller (more on that below), but you get two separate controllers to expand your options. Nintendo Switch deals rarely include these consoles in their bundles either, so it’s not worth the wait to get your hands on a huge bundle.
Or maybe you fancy a few different colors for your own use – the Neon Red / Blue Joy-Con bundle offers colors that are opposing to those the controller came with, for example (left red and right blue). Check out the latest prices below, or shop the latest cheap Joy-Con deals going on right now.
Nintendo switch pro controller deals
You wouldn’t actually do need to Nintendo Switch Pro console to play any games, so don’t feel pressured to buy one. The Nintendo Switch Pro controller is a more traditional pad and was launched alongside the Nintendo Switch. Prices aren’t cheap, though, starting at around $69.99 / £64.99. Nintendo Switch bundles have offered a Pro controller in the past, but they’re rare — and higher value bundles often set you back a little more money — so we don’t recommend waiting for them. Check out more Nintendo Switch Pro Controller deals in our dedicated guide.
Maybe not! Remember how the Joy-Con controller split into two? Flip it sideways and you get two primary controllers, each with an analog stick and face buttons—the d-pad acts as the face functions on the left controller. We’ve seen 2K’s NBA series, Snipper Clips, FIFA 19, and Mario Kart used in this way for local players in docked and tablet modes. So you get multiplayer functionality right out of the box with no additional purchase required.
However, if you want to play four-player games, you’ll need to invest in an extra pair of Joy-Con controllers or some Pro controllers. We’ll be buying the Joy-Con as a pair (see comparison chart above) as you’ll save a little money buying them separately. Better yet, if your friends own a Switch, ask them to bring their own controllers to the party!
Nintendo Switch bundles rarely offer additional consoles at the standard price, as they are particularly expensive game consoles. However, retailers sometimes include the Pro console in their Nintendo Switch sales at a slightly higher price.
Nintendo Switch MicroSD card deals
With only 32GB of internal storage, you’ll want to grab a cheap memory card or two for your new Nintendo Switch for any inevitable digital purchases or game install patches. Don’t worry, though, they’re actually surprisingly cheap, with even a 64GB one coming in at under £20 / $25.
What memory cards does Nintendo Switch need? These would be Micro SD cards, also known, depending on their size, as MicroSDHC (up to 32GB) or MicroSDXC (up to a whopping 2TB soon). Nintendo also has its own branded cards, but you’ll pay more for just a sticker. So, for now, we’re going to have a look at this set of cheap Nintendo Switch friendly MicroSDXC cards.
