It's that time, once again, for Black Friday, when shoppers around the world prepare to brave the crowds in search of bargains. Though originally an American tradition, like Big Macs and over-sized soft drinks it's been exported around the world, for better and worse. UK retailers have had a mixed relationship with the discount phenomenon in recent years, but seem to be going all in this time around. The official day is Friday 24th November, but discounts arrive over the broader Black Friday 'weekend'.
From a Nintendo perspective this festive season has a few big hitters aside from the obvious with the incredibly popular Nintendo Switch. One of which is the Super Nintendo Entertainment System Classic Edition, which has unfortunately been difficult to track down after initial stock sold through; more is promised before Christmas. Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon is also big news, and as a result 2DS and 3DS bundles and deals are sure to be prominent. On top of that, game discounts and neat merchandise will be ever-presents for Nintendo.
We've compiled some of the best deals and most useful links for Black Friday so far, but we'll be updating frequently through the day and the following weekend. Read on for the best savings in the UK, and don't forget to refer to our alternative guide for the Best Nintendo Black Friday 2017 Deals in the USA.
We'll be updating this guide every few hours as the discounts pick up speed.

Here are some quick links to UK retailers with the biggest deals:
Nintendo Switch Black Friday Deals
The Nintendo Switch has been hot all through the year. Launched back in March, the portable console hybrid has really begun to pick up pace in recent months. While we doubt there will be any crazy deals on Switch hardware this year, you may well be able to get a good deal on a bundle that includes some games.
Super Nintendo Entertainment System Classic Edition - Will I Be Able to Get One?
If you want a SNES Mini all hope is not lost, but it's going to be difficult. More stock roll-outs are expected through December, so it'll be a case of keeping vigilant and being ready to pounce. Sites like Amazon and the official Nintendo UK Store will be worth following, and we'll keep an eye out for stock updates.
Don't give up yet!
New 2DS XL or New Nintendo 3DS? Which is the Best Deal?
For the most part the 'original' 3DS and 3DS XL aren't seen too often nowadays, though some XL models may be available at bargain prices.
The choice of whether to go for a New Nintendo 3DS model is about convenience, primarily. If you have amiibo and enjoy those features, New systems are ideal with their in-built scanner, whereas the older 3DS XL and 2DS require an accessory to use the figures and cards. Aside from that the main benefits of the New 3DS (that are actually used) are improved 3D stability, making it far more effective than older models, and slightly quicker performance with eShop downloads.
New this year is the New 2DS XL, with a price that sits snugly between the standard 2DS and the New 3DS XL. It has all the same functionality as the New 3DS XL with the exception of 3D visuals on the top screen, and Nintendo will likely push hard with this model.
If you can live without those New extras or are buying for a young gamer in particular, the 2DS is still a good bargain option. With a low price and deals / bundles taking it lower, it strips away the 3D effect and clamshell design but delivers a sturdy and solid bit of kit.
