Welcome to our Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals live blog. At this time of year, we start to expect good savings on Nintendo's ever-popular games consoles, games and accessories, and we'll be tracking them all right here.

The Nintendo Switch is notorious for holding its value, so considerable discounts on the console itself are rare – very rare in the US, but deals do come up – especially on bundles with games and accessories. When you do spot a deal, you need to be quick. They don't tend to last long.

So with many retailers already offering Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals, make sure you're following along for all the latest. We'll be updating this live feed throughout the Black Friday period with all the best Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals. You'll find links to retailers offering Switch discounts below, and further below that our regular updates.

If you're looking for some other sweet Black Friday gaming deals, check out our PS5 Black Friday deals (opens in new tab) live blog too.

Kicking off our Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals live blog is a UK deal from Currys. So far, all the Switch discounts we've seen have been quite modest, and this is no exception. There's £20 off the Nintendo Switch OLED Neon with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe & SanDisk 256 GB memory card, taking it down to £349 (opens in new tab). This might not seem like much, but, as mentioned above, Switch consoles hold their value, and so any discount is worth snapping up if its on the device you want.

If you're looking for the original Switch, Very in the UK has good stock levels and some decent bundle deals on offer right now. One of the most popular is this one, which combines a Nintendo Switch console with the super-popular Animal Crossing game for £296 (opens in new tab)

The cheapest we could find Animal Crossing to buy separately was £37, added to the retail price of a Switch, and the total comes to exactly £296. So while this doesn't represent a saving, it offers both products at their lowest price possible, and it removes the hassle of trying to find, and purchase them both separately. It's also the cheapest you'll find this particular Switch combination on the web right now.

We couldn't do a Switch live blog without featuring this all-new limited edition Pokemon-themed OLED console – £319 at Argos (opens in new tab). Released on the 4 November, the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Edition console features art inspired by the upcoming game of the same name. Famous Pokemon Koraidon and Miraidon feature on the front, and a design inspired by the series' iconic Poke Ball is featured on the back.

This edition is only a tenner more expensive than the bog-standard OLED console, which will be a small price to pay for any super Pokemon fans. Note: this price is for the console only, no games are included.

Good morning everyone! It's just before 7am in the UK and we've been dreaming of Nintendo Switch deals. And as if the dream gods read our minds, we've woken to some incredible bundle deals, which we'll share with you after this breakfast of champions. 

Make sure to bookmark this page as we'll be updating the live feed all day with top Switch deals – and, trust us, there's some excellent offers heading this way. 

We'll bring you full details soon, but if you're in the UK and on the lookout for a Switch, Amazon UK launched its Black Friday week this morning, and there's some top offers on consoles and games right here (opens in new tab)

Nintendo Switch Lego Star Wars

If you've been scanning the quick links above, you may have noticed a delicious bundle deal on a Switch + Lego Star Wars game. Well, if you've got the Switch but need the game, you're in luck. You can grab Lego Star Wars at a not-to-be-turned-down £34.98 (opens in new tab). That's £15 off, and the lowest price this exciting game has been. Go Go GO!

That's right! It's a Switch Lite bundle. Right now you can grab the Coral Nintendo Switch Lite bundled with a digital code for the popular Animal Crossing: New Horizons from Amazon discounted from £262.40 down to £240, (opens in new tab) saving you £22.40!

Extra Joy-Cons are never a bad idea. It's great to have some spare for game nights with friends and family, and with the risk of Joy-Con drift ever-present it's good to rotate between various Joy-Cons every now and then. Amazon has discounted most of their Joy-Con pairs, including the neon red and blue Joy-Con bundle that is discounted from £74.99 down to £60 (opens in new tab), saving buyers a neat $14.99. Yes, they're still pretty pricey but considering these technically double up as two separate controllers  we're not complaining! You can also grab some other colour pairings (opens in new tab) for up to £10 off if you fancy something a bit different.

Hot console deal incoming! This is the best deal we've seen on the OLED so far as we've yet to see it below £300 this Black Friday. But right now, you can get the white Nintendo Switch OLED with Switch Sports for £299 from Very (opens in new tab), saving you an impressive £42.99! It would be wise to snap this one up quick as I don't expect it to last long.

Okay, so this saving doesn't seem like a lot. But considering Sonic Frontiers only came out last week, I'm pretty excited to see Amazon slash the RRP by £10 already, taking it from £55.99 down to £44.95 (opens in new tab). I'm not a massive Sonic fan myself, but I played a demo of this at EGX and had a lot of fun with it and with the approach of Christmas this would be a great gift for any SEGA fan!

We've yet to see any discounts on the traditional-shaped Nintendo Switch Pro controller, but PowerA are coming in hot with some great Black Friday Switch deals! PowerA have a fantastic line of officially licensed Nintendo controllers for the Switch and a bunch of themed designs are currently on sale from Amazon, saving buyers up to £19. I have a PowerA pad myself, and I absolutely love it. They're really lightweight and comfortable for long periods of gaming, and visually you can't fault them!

  • PowerA Vintage Mario wired controller: £24.99 £15.60 (opens in new tab)
  • PowerA Mario Pop wireless controller: £49.99 £30.59 (opens in new tab)
  • PowerA Animal Crossing KK Slider Wireless controller: £49.99 £32.40 (opens in new tab)

How about a cheeky round up of the best UK deals we've seen so far before we head across the pond to pick up some savings for the US? There's lots of good stuff already on sale ahead of Black Friday, so here's hoping we see some other stellar deals throughout the next week!

The best Black Friday Nintendo Switch Deals: UK

Heyup! 

Pokémon: Brilliant Diamond is a cool 30% off on Amazon, now £34.95 (was £49.99) (opens in new tab). That's a good price compared to the full price and the fact that big offers on Switch games are fairly rare, but for full disclosure, we have seen this game sold for £32.99 recently, so if you want to hold out for a few extra quid off (but risk it going out of stock), we might well see it drop a little further in the days to come. We'll let you know as we're hunting down the best deals for your favourite Switch games.

Gotta catch'em all, right?

Nintendo Switch OLED

This time last year, Nintendo Switch OLED deals were almost impossible to find. But this Black Friday, we're seeing far more discounts on the latest and greatest Nintendo console. One of the best in the UK comes from Currys, where you'll find £20 off the Nintendo Switch OLED + Zelda: Breath of the Wild + Micro SD bundle. (opens in new tab)

Once again it's proving hard to find some deals for Nintendo Switch, these wonderful games consoles hold their value. I have, however, managed to spy a very decent discount. You can get a Nintendo Switch OLED for £309 £279 at ASDA (opens in new tab) here in the UK – that's a descent saving of £30 on the best Nintendo console around. 

If you're looking to get a Nintendo Switch this Black Friday or are lucky enough to have one and need to bulk out your games collection with some bargains then I have some good picks for you. Currently GameStop has a number of Switch games for $25, which is a nice impulse buy price. I've listed the best deals below:

This Black Friday is the ideal time to collect all of the Pokémon games you've missed, as a number of them are reduced at Best Buy right now. I've chosen three of these Pokémon games, all for $39. Take a look…

While snooping around for deals at Walmart, we spotted some very good news. On November 21, the Nintendo Switch Mario Kart Deluxe Edition will be knocked down to just $299 (opens in new tab)! Make sure you remember this, and don't miss out on Monday.

There are also few games that Walmart have earmarked for sale soon. Next to the price on games including Mario Party Superstars and Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Walmart has marked how much they'll be on November 21 (just a few days away!). They're decent savings too, with both set to be knocked down from $59.88 to just $29 (opens in new tab). Make sure you don't forget about them in a few days!

STOP EVERYTHING. If you're in the UK, you're about to be VERY pleased. The Nintendo Switch OLED is down to just £279 at ASDA of all places (opens in new tab) (down from the usual £309). We know we mentioned this before but we didn't emphasise that this is the cheapest on the net, and we a record-low price for the console. We recommend snapping this up IMMEDIATELY.

Want a handy case? You can save a few dollars on this top-rated Orzly carry case on Amazon, bringing it down from $17.81 to just $14.89 (opens in new tab). Under $15 to protect your Switch and accessories seems like a bargain to us.

For anyone still up in the UK and trying to work out which of the various Black Friday Nintendo Switch OLED deals is the one to go for, here's are another couple of options that have popped up. Very has the Switch OLED + Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet for £389 £329 (opens in new tab), a saving of £60.

And if you prefer some sporting action, you can get the Switch OLED + Nintendo Switch Sports for £341.99 £299 at Very (opens in new tab). That one's a saving of £42.99.

The bad news is that the £30 saving that we'd found on the console alone at ASDA has now sold out, so bundles are the best options again. We've listed a few other decent OLED bundle deals above, so between these options at Very and the ones we've already mentioned, there are still some good options to get a bit of a saving.

Sadly, the only Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals in the US so far are on games. And one of the biggest discounts I've seen on games so far in percentage terms is 30% off Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes, now $59.99 $41.89 (opens in new tab) at Amazon. This is action-packed role-playing hack and slash game was released in June and won a lot of people over thanks to its surprisingly satisfying story. It's worth taking advantage of the discount to check it out if out if you haven't played it yet.

I'll be calling it a night soon, but we'll be back again tomorrow to continue tracking all of the best early Black Friday Nintendo Switch deals as they appear. 

Just to recap where things are at the moment, there are no deals on unused Switch consoles in the US, but there are discounts on games, with up to 30% off at Amazon (opens in new tab).

In the UK, it's a different story, with a wide range of bundle deals thanks to Amazon, Very and Currys all starting their Black Friday sales early. The cheapest option for the standard Switch is the console + Just Dance 2023 for £293.99 £271.98 (opens in new tab) at Amazon. 

You also have the option of that same package with the Switch OLED for £344.98 £324.98 (opens in new tab). Prefer Star Wars. The Nintendo Switch OLED LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga Classic Character Edition is £359.98 £335.57 (opens in new tab).

Good night and join us again tomorrow if you still haven't found the deal you're holding out for.

The retailer is replicating the offer US gamers will soon get, as you can now get a Nintendo Switch OLED and Mario Kart 8 for £329 (opens in new tab). The standard Nintendo Switch OLED sells for £309 so with Mario Kart 8 included you're saving £20.

We've been wondering if Nintendo itself might run any Switch Black Friday deals in its own stores since it's often been the best place to buy the Switch. Unfortunately, there are no discounts so far, though. The US store (opens in new tab) has all three Nintendo Switch consoles in stock at their respective RRPs – $199 for the Lite, $299 for the original Switch and $349 for the OLED. No special editions at the moment.

Over in the UK, the story's similar in that there are no direct discounts, but there's also the rather snazzy Nintendo Switch OLED special Pokémon Scarlet and Violet edition for £319.99 (opens in new tab). A nice option for Pokémon fans.
