It’s that time of year when you may be starting to put together your gift wishlist or looking for games and consoles to add to your Nintendo Switch holiday shopping list, and we’re here to help you again. As usual, we have a number of recommendations for things you or your loved ones might want this year.
There are two specific packages being released this year, but only one includes a system. The console costs $349.99 this year Super Smash Bros Ultimate Nintendo Switch OLED Black Friday bundle. This will give you a console with a special design tailored to the game, a code to download the fighting game and three months of Nintendo Switch Online.
The other bundle offers a way to get Joy-Cons with a game. For $99.99 you can get a digital copy of it Super Mario Party and a pair of red and blue controllers. Since the controllers normally cost $79.99 and Nintendo is selling the title for $59.99, that’s a small savings.
As a reminder, there are still some ubiquitous options available too. One of them is the standard Switch for $299.99 Mario Kart 8 Deluxe bundle up. There are also the Switch Lite systems for $199.99, but these don’t have removable Joy-Cons.
