In the market for a new Nintendo Switch for Christmas this year? Well, you have a wide variety of options, from default consoles to special bundles packed with free games and extras. At this point in the Switch's lifespan, we'd strongly encourage you to opt for the latter, as that's where the best value for money lies.
The Fortnite bundle, for example, is the same price as the Switch on its own, but comes with exclusive content for the world's biggest battle royale shooter. That includes an outfit, glider, harvesting tool, and 1,000 V-Bucks, which will let you grab a Battle Pass right away. Bargain! Even if you don't like Fortnite, it's free stuff, making this something of a no-brainer.
If you don't mind spending a bit more, you'll soon be able to get bundles that include games like Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, or Diablo III Eternal Collection. Not only do these bundles cost about the same as the console and game would anyway, they include extras like themed Joy-Cons and dock, and perhaps an extra controller or accessory. Basically, you do end up getting more for your money versus buying everything separately, and you always get something exclusive. Neat.
So without further ado, let's take a look at the best Nintendo Switch Bundles, and then the best prices for them beneath. We've split the Bundles up into US and UK prices so you can choose options depending on your territory.

Nintendo Switch Diablo III Bundle
The latest Nintendo Switch Bundle up for grabs is this limited edition Diablo III offering. It comes complete with a branded carry case, dock, and Switch unit, as well as Diablo III Eternal Collection itself and the Ganondorf Armor Set.
We're expecting this bundle to be listed in North America soon, so we'll update this guide when they become available.

Nintendo Switch Fortnite Bundle
Fortnite might be free to play, but that doesn't mean this Switch Bundle is short on value. You get the console at its regular price, with all the extras, and on top of that Fortnite pre-installed with exclusive skins and enough V-Bucks to get yourself a Battle Pass right away.
Even if you don't care about Fortnite, this now offers the best value for a new Switch.

Nintendo Switch Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Bundle
The Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Switch Bundle comes loaded with a digital version of the game, but that's not the best reason to buy this bundle over the others. What you're really getting this for are the themed Joy-Cons and Dock, which are incredibly classy.

Nintendo Switch Pokemon Let's Go Bundle
Speaking of themed Joy-Cons and Dock, the Pokémon Let's Go Bundle includes a cute option for the younger (at least at heart!) audience. The Joy-Cons are decked out in Pikachu and Eevee colours, and the Dock includes lovely images of the two.
If you're wondering why it's more expensive than some of the other options, that's because it also includes a digital copy of the game and the Poké Ball Plus Controller.

Nintendo Switch Super Mario Odyssey Bundle
The Super Mario Odyssey Switch Bundle was last year's best option but remains a solid candidate in 2018. You get a digital copy of Super Mario Odyssey alongside those gorgeous red Joy-Cons – which are a particular treat for UK buyers, as you can't purchase them separately over here yet.
It includes a themed carry case too, so you won't have to splurge out on one of those too.

Nintendo Switch Splatoon 2 Bundle
The Splatoon 2 Nintendo Switch Bundle is also quite tricky to find in the wild these days, but if you can track it down, it comes loaded with a digital copy of Splatoon 2, those lovely Neon Green, and Pink Joy-Cons. Much like with the Mario Odyssey Bundle, it includes a Splatoon 2-themed carry case. Yum!
