The Best Nintendo Deal: Switch Voucher Program


If you’re a Nintendo Switch owner looking to pick up some new games, you’re in luck. The company is running one of its best promotions right now, and you can take advantage of it to stock up on some great new titles. 

That’s right: Nintendo’s brought back its fantastic voucher program, which you can use to save as much as $30 off two brand-new games. The $100 offer gives you two vouchers you can redeem to download full-price, first-party titles like The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and Fire Emblem: Engage

Tears of the Kingdom

The long-awaited sequel to Breath of the Wild, titled Tears of the Kingdom, finally lands on the Switch in early May. Strangely enough, it’ll also be the first Nintendo-published game to retail for $70, making it $10 more expensive than the average Switch game. 

If you’re eager to pre-order this hotly anticipated new title without breaking the bank, you could use one of the vouchers from this new program to get the game for basically $20 off. This is a great deal if there are any other full-price Nintendo games you’re looking to pick up now.

Advance Wars 1 + 2: ReBoot Camp

Another game available through the voucher deal is the upcoming remake of Advance Wars 1 and 2. The game was delayed from its initial December 2021 release window and was slated to come out in April 2022. Tragically, the Russian invasion of Ukraine led to Nintendo shelving the project for an entire year.

Thankfully, the game is slated for release once again, now in April 2023. The remake will retail for $60, so redeeming a voucher for pre-order will help you save $10 when the game launches. Fans are ecstatic to get another chance to play this adorable turn-based strategy game!

Pikmin 4

Speaking of fan-favorite strategy games, Pikmin 4 will hit the Switch in July. This real-time strategy game is Nintendo’s take on the usually-overwhelming genre that is dominated by games like StarCraft and Command and Conquer. Pikmin, on the other hand, is downright adorable and easy for new players to pick up.

Pikmin 3 first landed on the Wii U back in 2015, so players have been waiting for a while to see what Nintendo has in store for the latest entry. As of today, it’ll retail for $60, so using a voucher to pre-order it will let you save $10! If you use a voucher on both a $60 game and Tears of the Kingdom, you’ll basically save $30 altogether!
