Black Friday Deals

Today, Nintendo finally announced their Black Friday Deals for this year in the United States. Here’s a special promo video for those deals, featuring the one and only Luigi:

This time around, there’s 3 specific deals to choose from:

  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe bundle ($299.99). It’s a run-of-the-mill Nintendo Switch bundle with the console and the game (Download Code). No extras or anything (special design, accessories, etc.), but a really nice price: the same as a regular model without any game, which means you get Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for free if you get this bundle!
  • Joy-Wheels ($14.99): a pack with two Joy-Con Wheel accessories;
  • Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS bundle ($79.99): includes a special New Nintendo 2DS (yellow + red) and a copy of Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS (pre-installed). This bundle allows you to save up to $40, which makes it a pretty sweet deal and a nice Christmas present.

Here’s what the packaging of the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Nintendo Switch bundle and the Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS Nintendo 2DS bundles look like:
