The best Nintendo Switch deal is sold out – but it's game-on with these alternatives

Forget Mario's Odyssey – finding a great deal on a Nintendo Switch this Black Friday has become an epic quest all of its own. 

[Updated: Speak of the red-capped devil and he shall reappear it seems! Amazon is offering an encore Lightning Deal for the amazing Switch + Mario Odyssey offer, for just £279.99! But there's a catch – you'll need to jump in at 3pm to get it at that super-low price.
