Black Friday deals are finally here, and for the lucky ones who have secured a Nintendo Switch, this is the best time to load up on games for the popular console. Black Friday gaming deals are always among the most popular offers for the annual shopping holiday, and this year’s no different with discounts on consoles, accessories, and games, so if you’re a Nintendo Switch owner, this is a great opportunity to expand your gaming arsenal through offers from various retailers.

The Nintendo Switch is maintaining its popularity over the PlayStation and Xbox partly because of its stable of games. To make the most out of the console, take a look at these discounted games that are part of this year’s Black Friday Nintendo Switch deals.

Combining Nintendo’s Super Mario and Ubisoft’s Rabbids franchises, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is a turn-based strategy RPG where you use tactics and weapons to travel through four worlds to try to restore order to a suddenly chaotic Mushroom Kingdom. You can play solo or co-op for the adventure, or go up against friends and family in local versus mode.

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 — $25, was $60

The Tokyo 2020 Olympics has been postponed, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy sporting events through Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020. The game features characters from the Super Mario and Sonic franchises and more than 30 events. There are also Dream Events, which will likely not be included in the Olympics any time soon.

Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! — $30, was $60

Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu Eevee q

Pokémon: Let’s Go, which comes in Pikachu and Eevee versions, is a reimagining of 1998’s Pokémon Yellow for the Game Boy, bringing players back to the Kanto region with the original 151 Pokémon. The game takes a more casual approach compared with the series’ core RPGs, with the elimination of random battles and a catch sequence that’s inspired by the mobile app Pokémon Go.

Splatoon 2 Standard Edition — $35, was $60

Splatoon 2 Splatfest

The sequel to the popular team-based multiplayer shooter from the Nintendo Wii U, Splatoon 2 follows the same formula of squid-kid hybrids known as Inklings trying to cover each stage with as much of their team’s color as possible through ink-filled cannons, while preventing enemies from doing the same. The game includes both a campaign and various multiplayer modes.

Yoshi’s Crafted World — $35, was $60

Yoshi's Crafted World

Set in a world that’s made out of everyday objects, Yoshi’s Crafted World places Mario’s green dinosaur friend in the spotlight in a charming and leisurely adventure to restore the Sundream Stone. The side-scrolling platformer makes use of interactive elements in the foreground and background, and you can even play stages backward to see how they’re made and find more collectibles.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses — $35, was $60

The latest entry in the long-running RPG series, Fire Emblem: Three Houses brings back turn-based battles and classes but places greater emphasis on your choices and the relationships that you develop with the other students of Garegg Mach monastery. As its title suggests, there are three houses for you to choose from, namely the close combat-focused Blue Lions, the magic-wielding Black Eagles, and the range-skilled Golden Deer.

New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe — $35, was $60

​The Nintendo Switch port of the underplayed New Super Mario Bros. U for the Nintendo Wii U, New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe reinvents the familiar side-scrolling genre with new mechanics and dynamic levels. The game also includes New Super Luigi U, which changes the levels into much more difficult versions for veterans who are up for the challenge.

Luigi’s Mansion 3 — $40, was $60

It’s Luigi’s turn to save Mario and Peach in Luigi’s Mansion 3, where players will go up against creepy ghosts, confusing puzzles, and intimidating bosses. The game introduces Gooigi, a goo version of Luigi who can walk on spikes and slip through tight spaces, among other things, which a friend or family member can control in two-player co-op.

Super Mario Maker 2 — $40, was $60

Limited only by your imagination, Super Mario Maker 2 gives you all the tools that you need to create Super Mario levels, which you can upload to share with other players. You can also try the levels created by other players all over the world, and there’s also a Story Mode with more than 100 levels made by developers using the same tools that you can access in the game.

The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening — $40, was $60

The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening is a remake of the 1993 Game Boy classic that introduces a redesigned graphical style and updated music, but keeps the adventure game’s engaging puzzles and quirky enemies. There are many more items to collect though, as well as a new Chamber Dungeons mode where you can build your own dungeons.

Best Buy’s deal of the day is a HP gaming laptop for $500
HP Victus placed outside while displaying an attractive background.

It's not often you see gaming laptop deals that dip under $500 but that's what Best Buy is offering right now. It's possible to buy a HP Victus 15.6-inch gaming laptop for just $500 instead of $800. It'll still play many of the latest games, too providing you don't mind tweaking the detail level. Excited to finally be able to afford a gaming laptop? Of course, you are! Here's what you need to know.

Why you should buy the HP Victus 15.6-inch gaming laptop
At this kind of price, it's important to acknowledge that the HP Victus 15.6-inch gaming laptop won't be as high-end as the very best gaming laptops. It's still well-made and ideal for the price range, but it is relying on older tech. It has an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of memory and 512GB of SSD storage. We're delighted to see it offer so much storage space as many laptops around this price might simply stick with 256GB, which would be pretty low for juggling many game installs at once.

The HP Victus 15L gaming PC on a desk.

Looking for a modestly priced gaming PC to start your building your rig? Best Buy has the gaming PC deals you need. Right now they have the popular HP Victus 15L at a $200 price cut, making the prebuilt gaming PC only $530. That's a great starting point for any gamer. We're not sure if this deal will last through the weekend, so grab it before goes back to full price.

Why you should buy the HP Victus 15L gaming desktop
The HP Victus 15L gaming desktop is equipped with the 12th-generation Intel Core i3 processor, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 graphics card, and 8GB of RAM. These specifications are a far cry from what you'd get with the top-of-the-line models of the best gaming desktops, but they're enough to play some of the best PC games like Fortnite, Minecraft, Genshin Impact, and Grand Theft Auto V. One of the advantages of buying a gaming PC instead of gaming laptop deals is that they're much easier to upgrade, so once you're comfortable with making a bigger investment, you can bump up RAM to 16GB -- which our guide on how to buy a gaming desktop tags as a good baseline for modern gaming systems -- or swap in a more powerful CPU.
