A Nintendo Switch console with a download code for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and a three-month Switch Online subscription is now available for £259.99 – offering a saving of £56.98 when purchased separately, according to the platform holder.
The same console bundle can be purchased with an additional game (Animal Crossing New Horizons / Mario Party Superstars / Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury Pack / Pokémon Brilliant Diamond / Pokémon Shining Pearl Pack) and a Switch carry case for £309.99.
At the time of publication, the recently launched Switch OLED model is currently out of stock.
For Black Friday, Nintendo UK’s online store is also offering discounts on digital Switch games until November 30, up to 50% off selected physical games, up to 40% off selected Switch accessories, 20% off selected Lego sets and games, a free 64GB Memory Card when you spend £75 or more on digital titles, and up to 25% off selected Pokémon merchandise.
Nintendo said this month that Switch has shipped 92.87 million units and that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is officially the series’ best-selling entry ever with almost 40 million copies sold.
The company also cut its annual Switch shipment forecast by 6% because of the global semiconductor shortage. Nevertheless, Nintendo has claimed it won’t be able to meet demand for the console this holiday season.
And it said it’s still internally discussing the concept and launch timing for its next gaming system.
