Best Prime Day Nintendo Switch deals

The Nintendo Switch is four years old, but its momentum isn’t slowing down even as it goes up against Sony’s PlayStation 5 and Microsoft’s Xbox Series X. As demand for the hybrid console remains high, gamers will be looking forward to Prime Day deals for a chance to buy the elusive device. Meanwhile, those who already own the console will be on the hunt for Prime Day Nintendo Switch deals on games and accessories to further build out their collection. There are still a lot of unclear details about Amazon’s annual shopping event, but for sure, Prime Day Nintendo Switch sales will offer savings that gamers should take advantage of.

What Prime Day Nintendo Switch Deals To Expect

It’s notoriously difficult to find discounts on Nintendo products, so Prime Day Nintendo Switch deals will likely only shave off a few dollars on the console and its bundles. However, that doesn’t mean there won’t be any savings to enjoy, and if you’re on a budget, small discounts will still go a long way.

In addition to deals for the console, Prime Day will likely come with discounts for Nintendo Switch games, as well as accessories such as controllers, headsets, and protective cases.

What Prime Day Nintendo Switch Deals We Saw Last Year

Last year, the focus of Prime Day Nintendo Switch sales was on the availability of the console, as there was a huge spike in demand as people stayed at home. There were discounts for Nintendo Switch games and accessories though, so those who were lucky enough to own the hybrid console had no shortage of options in expanding their gaming arsenal.

Should You Buy a New Nintendo Switch on Prime Day?

You should grab any opportunity to buy the Nintendo Switch if you don’t own it yet, and Prime Day is no exception as you’ll also have the chance to enjoy savings not just on the console but also on games and accessories. With a growing library of Nintendo Switch exclusives that includes Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and even more in the pipeline, you should purchase the Nintendo Switch as soon as you can.
