Buyer Beware: Nintendo Switch Black Friday Deal has a Nasty Surprise

And the momentum for the console/handheld hybrid isn't slowing down. Nintendo fans can look forward to the Black Friday sale to roll out on November 27, so plan accordingly.

However, this does not mean that the United Kingdom will miss out on this chance - Black Friday will take place on the 29th of November, so there's a lot of time for them to prepare something. A Nintendo Switch Black Friday bundle has been announced, but it might not be the best deal on closer examination. But here are some of the highlights.

There'll probably be better Xbox deals nearer the time, but even though the Switch is the only console not facing replacement next year there is already an excellent deal for that. Nothing is confirmed, but we've heard that, for $299.99 (£235), you'll get a Nintendo Switch, and Mario Kart 8. At first blush, this doesn't really seem like a deal since the Switch normally costs $300, but the difference here is the game - since the Switch doesn't normally have a pack-in game, you're essentially getting Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for free here. Nintendo isn't clear if the game discounts will also be available through the eShop, but we've reached out to the company for clarification and will update this post when we hear back. So you can play it on a TV as well as on the go. This bundle is the original Nintendo Switch model HAC-001 with a battery that ranges between 2.5 to 6.5 hours. In addition, the Poke Ball Plus controller for Pokemon Let's Go and Pokemon Go will get a 60% discount.

The court ruled that the time since Ntaganda turned himself in, in March 2013, will be deducted from the sentence. The court has also been criticised for mainly trying African suspects.


Along with this hardware bundle, Nintendo is knocking $20 off the price of several high-profile Switch games.

Over 10 games such as Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, Need for Speed Heat, Gears 5 and Borderlands 3 will run you $35 each for select platforms.

We're fast approaching Black Friday 2019 - which technically takes place on 29th November - and Nintendo has let us in on its very best offers on Nintendo Switch consoles, games, and accessories.
