Today’s Deals: Massive Switch Game Sale


If you’ve been holding off on buying some of the best exclusives for the Nintendo Switch, we’ve got some great news for you. A huge sale on some of the best first-party Nintendo titles is live right now over at Amazon. Ready to save some money on some great titles? Let’s take a look.

New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe

One of the best 2D platformers to release for the Switch is, funnily enough, a port of a Wii U title. The joke that the Switch is essentially a souped-up Wii U continues, with New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe featuring as one of the system’s premier couch co-op titles.

If you missed this great, old-school adventure the first time around, you can grab it now from Amazon for just $40. That’s a full $20 off of MSRP, making it a great deal on this classic romp.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses

Given the overwhelming popularity of recent entries in the series, it’s hard to believe Nintendo once thought Western audiences wouldn’t like Fire Emblem. Fans of historical fiction, tactical RPGs, and anime alike will be delighted by Fire Emblem: Three Houses.

In this turn-based tactical game, you take on the role of a professor at a school for aspiring warriors. You choose one of the titular three houses to take on as your class, and you teach them how to be heroes. The life-and-death stakes are given extra weight by the series’ trademark system: if one of your students falls in battle, they are gone forever.

The game is on sale for $40 over at Amazon, just like the rest of the titles on today’s list.

Super Mario Odyssey

Super Mario Odyssey is quite simply one of the best 3D platformers ever made. If you haven’t played this one yet, you owe it to yourself to experience the joyous adventure through the Mushroom Kingdom. Odyssey is one of the most convincing arguments to even own a Switch: a full-scale Mario adventure you can bring with you on the bus is a sight to behold.

The title is marked down by $20 at Amazon today, making it just $40.

Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition

A cult classic, Xenoblade Chronicles almost didn’t make it to the US after its original Wii launch in 2010. A grassroots fan campaign convinced Nintendo to release the title stateside, and it was met with glowing reviews and a fervent fanbase. Now, the series is one of Nintendo’s heavy hitters, a major franchise the company features alongside Mario and Zelda.

The fantastic Switch port of the title brings it into the HD era with style, and a new coda called Future Connected even gives old fans something new to discover in the well-realized fantasy world. It’s on sale at Amazon for $40 today, too.
