The best Nintendo Switch deals and bundles for April 2019

The Nintendo Switch has been out for a while now, and it has proven to be a home run for the iconic Japanese gaming company. After the lackluster performance of the Wii U, it’s safe to say that Nintendo is back in top form again. If you have any doubts, just take a look at its latest gaming system and its versatile nature. It quickly became its fastest-selling console in the U.S. Which explains why you likely won’t find huge Nintendo Switch discounts anywhere. Alternatively, some sweet bundles are everywhere to be found.

The Wii U, despite unimpressive sales, pioneered a number of innovations that the Nintendo Switch executes much more effectively. Perhaps the most notable of these design features is the built-in tablet controller. Yet while the Wii U’s gamepad merely freed you from your television, the Switch’s hardware is fully built into the tablet itself. This allows it to double as both a standard at-home system that hooks up to your television and a portable gaming device you can take anywhere thanks to the adaptable Joy-Con controllers.

Even if you’re a fan of the Xbox One or PlayStation 4, there’s no denying the amount of fun the newest Nintendo system brings to the gaming world. Because it’s a new console compared to the competition, deals are scarce at the moment, but considering that its retail price is just $300 — roughly the same price as an Xbox One or PS4, which have been out for years now — the Nintendo Switch is still a solid value with an awesome library of must-play games.

The Switch was tricky to find after its release and around the holidays due to its massive popularity, but they’re in much better supply right now. If you have been looking to get your hands on one, then now is a great time. With must-have games like Super Mario OdysseyThe Legend of Zelda: Breath of the WildSkyrim, Fortnite, Minecraft, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, getting this system is a no-brainer.

To help you find the right one at the right price, we’ve put together a roundup of the best Nintendo Switch deals, bundles, and discounts you won’t find in a store. You may still need to go to GameStop to find those cheap Nintendo games, though.

Despite only being on the market for one year, the latest system from Nintendo has already built a solid lineup of awesome first-party digital games. Nintendo Switch bundles are few and far between at the moment, but Nintendo has finally started rolling out a few game bundles, with more on the way. If you want to score a new console with some nice extras, then here are some consoles that come packaged with great games and accessories.

Nintendo Switch Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Edition — $510

Nintendo’s iconic series of multiplayer brawling games is finally coming to the Switch, and the new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was probably the most anticipated game since The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. So if you’re a true Smash fan, then this exclusive Switch bundle might be the one for you. It comes with the Switch itself and Joy-Cons with a a custom skin on both.

Nintendo Switch and $35 eShop gift card – $299

Nintendo Switch deals - free $35 eShop gift card

Nintendo is running a promotion right now that’s giving new Switch owners a free $35 eShop gift card with the purchase of a new console at its regular price of $299. Considering the great cheap Switch games you can find on eShop, 35 bucks can go a long way – at the very least, you should be able to find one or two titles to sink your teeth into.

This $299 bundle deal is available at Amazon, Walmart, and B&H. B&H arguably has the best deal here, as you get the free $35 eShop gift card and don’t have to pay sales tax if you’re outside of New York state. However, these offers fluctuate fairly regularly.

Nintendo Switch Super Mario Odyssey and accessories — $410

Nintendo Switch deals

After the fantastic Super Mario 3D Land and its equally great follow-up, Super Mario 3D World, it was hard to imagine how Nintendo could keep improving on the Mario formula. Nonetheless, the company managed it with Super Mario Odyssey, one of the best games of 2017 and a title that many fans place among the best that this long-running series has to offer.

Now you can hop into Mario’s latest cap-tossing, Goomba-stomping, globetrotting adventure with this Nintendo Switch bundle from Walmart. Along with the Switch console and Super Mario Odyssey, you also get a tempered-glass screen protector, hard carrying case, Joy-Con charging dock, and silicone Joy-Con sleeves, all for $410.

Nintendo Switch Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Pro Controller — $510

Nintendo Switch deals - Super Smash and Breath of the Wild bundle

Along with Super Mario Odyssey, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild are easily among the absolute best games for the Switch. Breath of the Wild, the latest in the Zelda franchise, stunned gamers and reviewers alike (ourselves included) with its gorgeous, sprawling fantasy world, and totally open-ended gameplay, with many declaring it the best Zelda title ever made.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has also been hailed as a fantastic installment in Nintendo’s fighting franchise, and we’re inclined to agree. This bundle from Newegg comes with a Switch console, both of these must-own titles, and the awesome Pro controller, all for $510.

Nintendo Switch Mario Tennis Aces — $350

nintendo switch bundle deals

Of all of Nintendo’s multiplayer franchises, the Mario Tennis series might be the most underrated and underappreciated. It may live in the shadow of Nintendo titans like Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros., but Switch owners owe it to themselves to try Mario Tennis Aces. It’s a simple game, admittedly – the Mario Tennis games tend to be pretty straightforward – but it’s easy to pick up, surprisingly addictive, and the multiplayer matches are hectic and hilarious to play with friends. (You should also give the story mode at least one playthrough to experience the humorous writing and intense boss fights.)

This $350 Nintendo Switch bundle includes a console with red-and-blue Joy-Cons and a full download of Mario Tennis Aces. You also get a free downloadable copy of 1-2-Switch, a fun pick-up-and-play multiplayer game, as a nice little bonus.

Nintendo Labo Variety Kit and Robot Kit — $54 – $60

Despite an initial reaction that could be best described as “mixed,” Nintendo’s innovative Labo kits have proven to be very popular and offer a lot of creative fun for adults and kids alike. The Variety Kit contains six different projects for you to build, which include two remote control cars, a 13-key piano, and a motorbike. The Labo Robot Kit lets you build a Toy-Con Robot “suit” so you can play as your own custom robot in the included game. Robot Kit is currently on sale for $40 on Amazon, but the Variety kit has sold out. Though you can pick it up for $57 at Walmart if you can’t wait for it to come back in stock.
