Black Friday is here, in spite of the fact the actual date isn't until the Friday after Thanksgiving. Nintendo Black Friday deals start today and include savings on a bunch great games, as well as the return of the Nintendo Switch Mario Kart 8 Black Friday bundle.
Nintendo Switch Black Friday Bundle Deal
For $299.99, you get a neon Nintendo Switch console, a copy of the most successful Nintendo Switch game of them all, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and a single-user subscription to Nintendo Switch Online. If you're giving a Nintendo Switch as a gift this year, this is definitely the bundle to get.
How to Get the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe New Tracks
With the 3-month subscription to Nintendo Switch Online, you get access to online play and a collection of Super NES and NES games as part of the subscription. However, if you want to access the new Mario Kart 8 tracks, you'll need to upgrade to the NSO Expansion subscription. That tier entitles you to the extra Mario Kart 8 tracks, Animal Crossing DLC, the Splatoon 2 Octo Expansion, as well as access to a selection of Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis games.
When Does the Nintendo Switch Black Friday Bundle Go on Sale?
Nintendo announced the start of its Black Friday deals is Sunday, November 20, 2022. That means retailers will be going live with the Switch bundle as early as Sunday, but it's tough to know for sure what time. In years' past, Walmart has kicked things off in the early evening, around 7 PM eastern time, but this year the Walmart Black Friday deals don't officially kick off until November 21. Still, definitely worth keeping an eye out. Best Buy's Black Friday deals start November 20, too, so expect to see the bundle live that day. Amazon is a bit of a wildcard, just doing whatever it feels like, but the Amazon Black Friday deals are already live and there are no doubt thousands more to come.
