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

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)
