While various retailers have been hosting their own pre-Black Friday sales, ramping up for the post-Thanksgiving shopping rush, Nintendo of America is now letting fans in the US know about what video game deals they can find later this month.

First, the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Nintendo Switch bundle has escaped the race-ruining Blue Shell yet again. Returning for the third year in a row, those who are wanting a Nintendo Switch can get the Neon-Red/Neon-Blue Joy-Con unit, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (download code), and 3 months of Nintendo Switch Online Individual Membership for $299.99. A free game and three months of free Nintendo Switch Online. Not a bad deal at all! This bundle will be available starting Sunday, November 22nd at the following retailers: Amazon, Best Buy, Game Stop, Target, and Walmart.



Next are the games! Nintendo is taking $20 off some of its best selling titles: New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, Super Mario Maker 2, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, Luigi’s Mansion 3, Splatoon 2, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Mario Tennis Aces, and Yoshi’s Crafted World. This deal will begin on Friday, November 20th, but certain retailers have already made this deal available (notably, Amazon). 



Then just two days later on Sunday, November 22nd, Minecraft Dungeons – Hero Edition will be on sale for $19.99 ($10 off). Closing out today’s reveal is a nostalgic trip back to Kanto. For those who held out on picking up either Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! or Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! both games will be on sale for $29.99 beginning on Wednesday, November 25th. 


You can find all of Nintendo’s announced deals and even more Nintendo-themed goodies on their brand new Holiday Gift Guide site! Whether you’re buying a gift for a loved one, a friend, or yourself, it’s the perfect place to start and see what’s new.
