Nintendo Bundles Switch + Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for Black Friday
I know it’s entirely down to the power of Nintendo’s brand, but it seems ludicrous that over two years after they launched, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (two years, eight months, four days old) and Super Mario Odyssey (two years, 11 days old) are still $79.99 plus tax here in Canada, but at least you can get a bit of a break on Black Friday with $20 off both titles.
There’s also savings on the Joy-Con controllers, which also get $20 off to reduce them to $79.99 Canadian – and I’m pretty sure I should take advantage of that since mine have outrageously bad stick drift, to the point it was interfering with playing the amazing Disgaea 4 Complete+.
If you haven’t jumped into the Switch ecosystem yet, there’s also a hardware bundle that will sell for the regular price of $399 but also include Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (two years, six months, 10 days old).
If you don’t have a Switch, what are you waiting for? The thing has a ton of games no matter what genres you like, and it’s super handy to just be able to fire it up no matter where you are in the house. If you have kids, it’s spectacular at keeping them entertained on long car rides, and with the ability to share Joy-Cons and play same-screen co-op, there are less fights over it than you multi-child households might expect.
Here’s the press release:

With Nintendo Switch, anyone in the family can find something they are looking for – from traversing the beautiful island and trap-ridden dungeons of The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, to embarking on a fantasy adventure that’s powered by real-life movements and exercise in Ring Fit Adventure, to exploring a haunted hotel and solving puzzles in Luigi’s Mansion 3.
And coming soon, Nintendo Switch owners can experience a new generation of Pokémon with Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield games, launching on Nov. 15. Families can also fill their holiday season with some family-friendly fun by checking out the colourful adventure New Super Lucky’s Tale, launching on Nov. 8, as well as the ultimate dance game Just Dance 2020 and sports party game Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, both available now.
Nintendo Switch is also home to well-received games like Super Mario Maker 2, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, all of which can be enjoyed together with the entire family. And any game that is compatible in Handheld mode can also be played on the recently released Nintendo Switch Lite system. Nintendo Switch Lite is a dedicated handheld system that’s ideal for people who have lots of opportunities to play on the go. It’s also a great option for families who want a choice of a Nintendo Switch system that fits their play styles.
