In-store and digital-only Black Friday Nintendo deals in the US
In-store only deals on Nintendo Switch consoles and games in the US are looking thin on the ground at the moment, and Nintendo of America hasn't announced any specific Black Friday digital sale on the Switch eShop, either.
However, at the time of writing there are currently 232 discounted games on the North American Switch eShop. Listing them all here would take up far too much space, but you can check out the lot by heading to Nintendo's official Switch deals page to see if there's anything you fancy. If you're looking for recommendations on the best cheap Nintendo Switch eShop games (around $10 or under), be sure to check out our cheap Switch eShop deals page.
In-store and digital-only Black Friday Nintendo deals in the UK
The first stop for UK Nintendo fans who already own a Switch of a Switch Lite should probably be the Switch eShop. The Cyber Deals 2019 sale is running until 1st December and features over 150 games. Discounted games include big first-party titles like Super Mario Odyssey, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Xenoblade Chronicles 2. The entire list is too substantial to reproduce here, but check out the full lineup of included games below:
Outside the digital realm, various outlets are running in-store only deals on consoles and bundles.
Super market chain ASDA is currently running an in-store only deal on a vanilla Nintendo Switch console for £239.99 while stocks last.
Anecdotally we've heard of stores selling out fast, but if you're after the console without any bundled software and you happen to live close to an ASDA, it might be worth giving the store a ring (old-school, we know) and checking to see if they've got any stock before leaving the house. For that price, it's probably worth braving the bad weather!
ASDA also has an offer on a Nintendo Switch Lite console for £169.99 - £30 off the RRP. The Pokémon Special Edition Switch Lite isn't part of the deal, but as you can see from the ad, the three standard colours are available.
Again, it's probably worth giving the store you're planning to visit a ring to make sure your trip isn't a wasted one.
Competing supermarket chain TESCO is also reportedly running an in-store deal for a Switch console and a selected game for the standard console price of £279.99 - essentially gifting you a game for free.
That's all for now - we'll update this with more in-store only or digital deals as they appear over the coming days. In the meantime, happy bargain hunting and stay safe out there.
