The best Nintendo Switch Black Friday 2021 deals
Nintendo Switch OLED bundle with ‘Paper Mario: The Origami King’: Was £347.98, now £319.99, Game.co.uk
While we haven’t found many deals on the standalone Nintendo Switch OLED, this bundle deal from Game is an excellent Black Friday buy if you’re looking to bag Nintendo’s newest console. You’re essentially buying the Nintendo Switch OLED at full price, but then getting Paper Mario: The Origami King for a tenner. That’s a £28 saving off the game’s original price, and you get to play it on that lush new vivid 7in screen. “Its colourful display, better build quality and bigger storage makes buying the Nintendo Switch OLED a no-brainer,” our writer said in their review of the console. “New to Nintendo? Buy the Switch OLED console and never look back.”
If you are looking for a discount on the standalone Nintendo Switch OLED, the best we’ve seen is from Tesco, who is providing a £10 discount to Clubcard holders if they buy the console in-store. Although it might be tricky to find.
Nintendo Switch neon red/neon blue bundle with ‘Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’ and three-month Nintendo Switch Online membership: Was £329.98, now £259.99, Argos.co.uk
The red and blue neon version of the Nintendo Switch is our favourite colour variant, and now this bundle with Mario Kart 8 is on sale at its lowest ever price. As usual, you get the neon colourway with its contrasting joy-cons, as well as the black Switch dock. With this Black Friday deal, you’re essentially just paying for the console and getting Mario Kart and a three-month Nintendo Switch Online membership for free. Pick it up now and you’ll be racing around Rainbow Road (online) in no time.
Tesco is also selling this bundle for just £239, but it is exclusive to Clubcard holders and is only available in-store.
Nintendo Switch neon red/neon blue bundle with ‘Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’, ‘Pokemon: Shining Pearl’, three-month Nintendo Switch Online membership and a carrying case: Was £366.96, now £309.99, Nintendo.co.uk
Nintendo has bundled the classic neon Switch console with the neon joy-cons and black dock together with a whole host of other extras. With this bundle, you’re essentially paying for the OG Nintendo Switch and a copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe , but then receiving the latest Pokemon: Shining Pearl game (which has only been out for a few days) along with a three-month subscription to Nintendo Switch Online and a carrying case for free. This is a great deal and will save you £56.97.
Nintendo Switch neon red/neon blue bundle with ‘Just Dance 2022’: Was £301, now £273.99, Amazon.co.uk
The Nintendo Switch neon red/neon blue edition, bundled with everyone’s favourite game to groove to – Just Dance 2022 – is currently discounted in Amazon’s Black Friday sale. This is the lowest price we’ve ever seen it at – it’s only ever gone as low as £293.99 in the past. It comes with the dock and two neon joy-con controllers.
Nintendo Switch: Was £259, now £229, Asda.com
This is the lowest price we’ve seen the Nintendo Switch sell for this Black Friday (so far), and it comes courtesy of Asda, of all places. You don’t get any extra games or subscriptions like you do with the Argos deal (£359.99 for the Nintendo Switch, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and a three-month subscription to Nintendo Switch Online, Argos.co.uk ), but a £31 discount on the standalone console is not to be sniffed at. The catch? The deal is only available in-store, so you’ll need to pop in to your local Asda to bag the bargain.
Nintendo Switch neon red/neon blue bundle with ‘Pikmin 3 Deluxe’: Was £297.98, now £269.99, Game.co.uk
Been eyeing up the colourful Nintendo Switch console this Black Friday? We’ve just spotted one of the cheapest bundle deals at Game, which will save you almost £30. It comes with the deluxe version of the original Pikmin 3 classic, where you’ll grow cute Pikmin creatures, build a squad to overcome obstacles and help find food for your starving family back on your home planet. It was only released last year and now has new side quests with Olimar and Louie.
Nintendo Switch neon red/neon blue with ‘Mario Party Superstars’: Was £329.98, now £289.99, Game.co.uk

‘Warioware: Get it Together!’, Nintendo Switch: Was £34.99, now £29.99, Currys.co.uk
Every Nintendo fan knows that any game featuring a Nintendo character, like Mario or Princess Peach, rarely ever go on sale, which is why we are so excited to see the new Warioware game get a generous £5 discount this Black Friday. The game was released in September and has made its way onto our round-up of the best Nintendo Switch games . “With over 200 microgames to play through, Warioware: Get it Together! is a great way to gather together friends and family even if they don’t play many games ordinarily,” our reviewer said. “Each game takes mere seconds (usually under 5) so there’s never any time to become bored of them. Instinctive reactions are usually key here given the speed at which you need to negotiate each stage.”
‘Paw Patrol the Movie Adventure City Calls’, Nintendo Switch: Was £34.99, now £24.99, Amazon.co.uk

Best Nintendo Switch accessories Black Friday deals
SanDisk ultra 256GB microSD card for Nintendo Switch: Was £48.99, now £20.89, Amazon.co.uk
A microSD card might not feel like the most exciting of purchases but it’s near essential if you plan on loading up on Nintendo Switch games from the Nintendo eShop store this Black Friday. This 256GB card from SanDisk landed a spot in our round-up of the best Switch accessories , with our writer saying that “setup is a simple matter of slotting the card into the clearly placed microSD slot on your console. There’s no need to format or do anything more complicated than that.”
Turtle Beach recon 70 gaming headset: Was £29.96, now £19, Amazon.co.uk
If you’re looking for an entry-level gaming headset for your Switch that won’t break the bank, look no further than the Turtle Beach recon 70, which featured in our round-up of the best gaming headsets . “While there’s no memory foam support, the ear cushions feel good and the 40mm drivers go some way to ensure you still get an immersive experience, able to spot where someone is coming from via sounds,” our writer said in their review. And because it’s wired, it’ll work with your PS5, PS4, Xbox series X, Xbox one, Nintendo Switch, PC and basically anything with a headphone jack. Plus, it has a mic that’s easy to flip up. Simple yet effective.
What is Cyber Monday?
Then there’s Cyber Monday, which began as the online version of Black Friday and takes place after the weekend. But, again, online shopping has caused all four days to blur together and Black Friday deals tend to cover the week, weekend, and roll into Cyber Monday too, which for 2021 is 29 November. We expect to see more Nintendo Switch deals throughout this date too.
