Build your dream Nintendo Switch bundle with this great deal from Walmart

Prime Day is the brainchild of Amazon, but that doesn’t mean that’s the only place you’ll be able to find excellent video game sales this week. Walmart is currently offering a Nintendo Switch bundle with your choice of game and accessory for just $329 — that’s nearly $50 off the standard price — and there are quite a few options available.

Go to Walmart’s page for the bundle right now and you’ll be able to claim a standard Nintendo Switch system before choosing from one of five games. The available titles are Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Party, Super Mario Odyssey, Splatoon 2, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

You can’t go wrong with any of these games, but we’d suggest choosing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild or Super Mario Odyssey as your first game. These are both massive adventures filled with secrets and collectibles, and they work well in both docked and handheld modes. The only game we would not recommend buying in this bundle is Super Mario Party, because it requires one Joy-Con per person, so you will only be able to enjoy it with one other player unless you purchase additional controllers.

Lastly, you can choose from one of two bonus accessories. The first is a portable power bank charging stand, which can store up to 10000mAh of power. This will provide you with several hours of battery life beyond what the Switch’s internal battery can muster, and the stand is a big upgrade over the one on the back of the Switch by default.

If you’re buying the Nintendo Switch bundle for a younger player, you can also choose the Paw Patrol Switch carrying case and screen protector instead. Anyone out of elementary school will likely not appreciate this option as much, so plan accordingly.

Once you have your bundle all prepared, consider checking out Walmart’s full list of Switch games, as several other titles are also on sale. The discounted games include Pokémon: Let’s Go, New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, and Mario Tennis Aces. Be sure to  also look at our dedicated Prime Day Switch page, as well as those for PS4 and Xbox One.

Nintendo Switch OLED has a $66 discount, but there’s a catch
Nintendo Switch OLED running the new Zelda game.

Gamers know that Nintendo Switch deals almost always get sold out quickly, so you should be quick in taking advantage of Walmart's offer for the Nintendo Switch OLED. From its sticker price of $350, it's available for only $284 for savings of $66, which is enough to get you a Nintendo Switch game. There's a catch though -- the version that's on sale is imported from Japan, but that won't be a problem for you to enjoy the hybrid console. Proceed with the transaction right away, as you may miss out on the bargain if you hesitate.

Why you should buy the Nintendo Switch OLED
The Nintendo Switch OLED is an upgraded version of the Nintendo Switch that features a 7-inch OLED touchscreen that's bigger and brighter with more vivid colors, so that you can better enjoy the best Nintendo Switch games. Other changes that are highlighted by our Nintendo Switch OLED versus Nintendo Switch comparison include double the internal storage of 64GB -- though you can expand the console's capacity through a microSD card -- a built-in LAN port in the dock for a more convenient way of connecting an Ethernet cable for a more stable internet connection, and a wider kickstand that covers the entire backside of the console that's sturdier and allows for multiple degrees of positioning.

The Nintendo Switch is one of the most popular gaming platforms of the last decade, and because of it Nintendo Switch deals can be hard to come by. Today, however, you can save on the Nintendo Switch Lite, which is marked down from $200 to $179 at Walmart. This deal makes for a savings of $21 and free shipping is included, but if you’re willing to spend a little more you can save a little more, as at Woot!, which makes for a savings of $30 from its regular price of $350.

Why you should buy the Nintendo Switch Lite
Nintendo has released several different Switch models, with the Switch OLED being the choice for a high quality screen and the Switch Lite being where you should turn if you want ultimate portability on the Switch platform. It’s designed exclusively for handheld play, making the Switch experience something you can do just about anywhere. This is the smallest of all of the Switch models, which makes it easy to tuck away into a backpack or travel bag,, and which makes it unobtrusive if you like to sneak some gameplay in on the morning bus ride or walk to work. Despite its size it’s still fully capable in tackling the best Switch games.
