Nintendo of Europe has today unveiled a new selection of Nintendo Switch Online bundles which offer a subscription to the service alongside a top game of your choice.
The deal allows you to buy both the Online subscription and a digital copy of your chosen game for less than what it would cost separately. You can go ahead and buy them from the Nintendo eShop as we speak, but we've got each of them listed below for your convenience:
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe + Nintendo Switch Online (12-month Family Membership): £68.99
- Savings: £12.49 / €14.99
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate + Nintendo Switch Online (12-month Individual Membership): £68.99
- Savings: £8.99 / €9.99
Splatoon 2 + Nintendo Switch Online (12-month Individual Membership): £58.99
- Savings: £8.99 / €9.99
Super Mario Maker 2 + Nintendo Switch Online (12-month Individual Membership): £59.99
- Savings: £7.99 / €9.99
While we wouldn't necessarily list it as a saving quite the like the ones mentioned above, you can also pre-order Overwatch: Legendary Edition alongside a 3-month Individual Membership as standard. This bundle costs £35.99.

So, what, I have to CANCEL my recurring yearly family sub to "save" money here? Nintendo, cmon.
Put it as a bundle for people without sub, discount it for people with sub. It's not that hard.
Stone age approach smh.
Another Nintendo deal that's the same price as buying them at retail and probably more if you shop around
@Blizzia I don't think they're aimed at people / families that already have the subscription. If you shop around you can find much better deals for both the games and the subscription.
I don't think Nintendo really have a grasp as to what savings are. These 'savings' are miniscule at best, non-existent otherwise.
Meh this is pretty poor
I love Nintendo but their "offers" are a complete joke and have been since the 90s.
@MS7000 I think they do, but they are well aware of who they are. Basically, what I’m trying to say is that I think this is their ego on display. It’s as if their saying, we’re Nintendo. We don’t need to give deep discounts. People will buy our products anyway.
That same ego was on display when they launched the 3DS at the price they did. Only to have to give in and start slashing prices when the majority of the public rejected the system.
I feel like another example was the Wii U. They didn’t even get the messaging right in terms of selling the system. I think they figure that with having Wii in the name of the system it would fly off the shelves.
@Blizzia will you have to cancel? I think you just go to online service in profile and input your new code and it adds 12 months onto the end of your current paid period. You could untick the subscription option just to be sure it. Correct me if I’m wrong.
Maybe it's me but I don't see any deals here in fact it's the opposite of a deal!
@beazlen1 The issue is that my sub has already been renewed for another year. They're offering people who already supports them nothing. I don't wanna pay for ANOTHER year again right off the bat.
@sikthvash not if you go digital, that's for sure. Anyway, my issue with this is that it is a middle finger to supporters. We get nothing for already having the sub, people without it get discounts. Excellent.
@Blizzia true... that voucher scheme is a bit of a missfire too as it doesn't save much when you can purchase physical carts and save more. I hear what you're saying; they should make it more attractive for current subscribers to stick around for longer - I'd be more tempted to stack up membership time if there were better incentives.
Splatoon is the only out of those that I don't have and I have absolutely no interest in that.
@Expa0 that's a shame. It's a brilliant game, though I guess it isn't exactly everyone's cup of tea.
Anyone ever consider that this targets new users more than existing users?
I'll always go for option B: Buy a physical version cheaper than the digital one, save a lot of space on your very limited internal storage/SD and have the possibility to trade/lend/sell your game.
Another bad deal from Nintendo.
Bundling a old game, and only discount 10 bucks?
Microsoft 12 month Game Pass included purchase versions of Forza 7 and Forza Horizon 3, and on top of that 20% discount.
Wow, I can get Splatoon 2 and even be allowed to play it for a year for only £58.99?!
Such a bargain...
These delectable deals are also available in Australia.
Give me a moment, I have a puddle of saliva to wipe off my keyboard.
Eh, I can get these cheaper as physical. Way to go Nintendo.
Or you can get MK8 retail for 38.99 and NSO for 17.99 totalling 56.98 and “save” twice the amount.
These Nintendo savings are so stingy and just align the overinflated price of online games to retail pricing...
erm doesn't seem quite the saving,
@HobbitGamer yes. Sikthvash did. It was the third comment.
Bit stingey, like
