So the deal below is fun, but the good news is that all of the UK Black Friday Nintendo Switch deals we’ve seen in the past few days are still in stock right now. and that includes this much more generous Pokemon Scarlet and Violet bundle from Very. You can get the Nintendo Switch OLED + Pokémon Scarlet and Violet for £389 £329 (opens in a new tab), which is pretty good considering the console alone normally sells for £309.99. So thank you, very; this one is a real deal!

It’s past midnight in the UK, and we all know what that means. It’s actually Black Friday. Or at least what used to be called Black Friday since it has become the only day of the year that now lasts an entire month.

So have we seen a sudden burst of Black Friday Nintendo Switch deals now that it’s actually Friday? Uh… no… No, we didn’t. Unless you count this stonkingly generous £1 savings at Very. Yes, you read that right. Very has an amazing £1 discount on Pokémon Scarlet (opens in a new tab)and, in fact, £1 off Pokemon Purple (opens in a new tab) also – the latest Pokémon games, which were released just a week ago.

We are back. And there is good news and bad news. We’ll start with the latter, Switch console deals in the US are scarce to say the least. However, the good news is that there are some great deals on popular games that make great Christmas gifts.

A great deal has ended at Amazon, where you can get Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga for $37.90 (opens in a new tab) – that’s over $22 off the retail price.

Suitable for ages seven and up, it’s a fabulous choice not just for Star Wars fans, but for the whole family.

It’s just past 10pm in the UK in the evening and we’ve been scouring the web for great Switch deals all day. And there have been a few crackers so far, but a lot of stock is now sold out and deals have already ended, so we’re back on the hunt for the best Switch prices on consoles, accessories and games this Black-Friday.

Stay tuned. We’ll have coffee and be back soon with more Switchy goodness.

Evening everyone, if you are joining us from the UK you are in for a treat. Amazon currently has the original Nintendo Switch, with Mario Kart and three months online subscription for £259 (opens in a new tab).

So what is the economy, we hear you ask? A Nintendo Switch on its own sells for £259, so you get the game and online subscription for free here. It’s no surprise that this is a best seller on Amazon right now – grab one before they’re all gone.

The Nintendo Switch bundle.

OK, let’s be frank, the current crop of Nintendo Switch deals leaves a bit to be desired. The truth is, there are deals on everything around the Switch – like games and controllers – but the console remains stubbornly spared discounts.

That is unless you look at the bundles. And the king of Nintendo Switch bundles remains this Nintendo Switch Neon Joy-Con + Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (GameDownload) + 3 Month Nintendo Switch Online Individual Membership for $299 at Best Buy (opens in a new tab).

This is by far the best deal we’re seeing on the console in the US right now…

UK buyers can get the white OLED Switch that comes with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and a 256GB Micro SD card for £379 £359 at Currys (opens in a new tab) at present. Despite being released alongside the Switch’s first launch five years ago, Breath of the Wild is still considered one of the best games available on the Nintendo console.

These are pretty hardcore gamer headphones that can be used with any modern console and PC, so they’re a great choice for gamers who want to get the most out of Nintendo Switch games. Get the Razer Blackshark V2 gaming headset from Amazon now for $99.99 $69.99 (opens in a new tab)saving you $30.

I’ve been keeping an eye out for all the deals on the Nintendo Pro Controller, but no retailer has dropped the price yet… So the second best brand to choose is PowerA. PowerA makes fantastic Nintendo-licensed pads that are both stylish and fun to use: I use one instead of the Pro pad and love it. Amazon has currently discounted a few of their models, including this Legend of Zelda pad (opens in a new tab) and carpet Mario (opens in a new tab)saving up to $15 on each.

We’re now traveling across the pond to review some US-based offerings. If you’re heading to Dell, you can currently pick up the white OLED Switch that comes with Splatoon 3 and a controller plate for $399. (opens in a new tab). Originally retailing for $439.99, this set will save you $40.

The Nintendo Switch doesn’t have the most amount of internal storage. The modest 32GB is quickly eaten up if you play a lot of games, so to give you more leeway an internal MicroSD is the way to go. Right now you can get the officially licensed Nintendo 256GB SanDisk microSD for £77.99 £39.49 on Amazon (opens in a new tab)making it almost half the price!

If you’re an avid Pokemon fan looking for a shiny new Switch, then this is the deal for you! Currently, Very has the white OLED Switch bundled with all-new Pokemon Violet and Scarlet for £389 £329 (opens in a new tab). Considering an OLED console usually sells for £309 on its own, paying an extra £20 for two new game releases worth usually £41.99 each is a bargain.
