Below we've collected our picks of the best Nintendo Switch deals still live, though it's important to note that these are accurate at time of writing but could end at any time.

Black Friday Nintendo Switch deals: retailer links

Black Friday Nintendo Switch deals still live

Nintendo Switch OLED - White

Nintendo Switch OLED - White | AU$539.95 AU$479 at Amazon (save AU$60.95)

We hoped for better, particularly given some of the savings we saw on the Switch OLED in the weeks leading up to Black Friday, but unfortunately this is the lowest price we've seen for the OLED console over Black Friday. Luckily, though, the chance to snag it at this price still remains. The price only applies to the console in White, with the Neon model sold out.

Nintendo Switch Console (Neon) with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe + 3 Month Switch Online Subscription

Nintendo Switch Console (Neon) with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe + 3 Month Switch Online Subscription | AU$469.95 AU$379 at Amazon (save AU$90.95)

Get your hands on the base Switch console with a digital copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and a three month subscription to Switch Online thrown into the mix for just AU$379 when you take advantage of this Black Friday saving. You'll have everything you need to get going with your new Nintendo console from right out of the box with this bundle, so well worth consideration.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild | AU$89.95 AU$72 at Amazon (save AU$17.95)

Nintendo's most acclaimed release for the Switch, Breath of the Wild is preparing to land its long awaited sequel next year but hasn't lost an ounce of its popularity since releasing in 2017. As with many Nintendo first-party titles, the popularity of this one leads to it rarely getting significant discounts, but an AU$17.95 saving like this one here is better than nothing!

Super Mario Odyssey

Super Mario Odyssey | AU$79.95 AU$64 at Amazon (save AU$15.95)

If there's any game for the Nintendo Switch that can rival the acclaim of Breath of the Wild, it's the much-loved Super Mario Odyssey, seeing the Italian plumber return to the territories of Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine. As such a popular Nintendo first-party title, it often doesn't land many significant discounts and this isn't the lowest we've seen it go, but it's certainly close enough if you've been been waiting to play it.

Luigi's Mansion 3

Luigi's Mansion 3 | AU$79.95 AU$64 at Amazon (save AU$15.95)

Once dismissed as being just Mario's brother, the initial launch of the Luigi's Mansion series for the Gamecube in 2001 finally saw some long awaited love head Luigi's way. The third in the series, and first for the Nintendo Switch, continued the trend with much aplomb when it debuted in 2019 and now for Black Friday it can be had with a handy modest discount attached -  a common theme for first-party Nintendo titles.

FIFA 23 Legacy Edition

FIFA 23 Legacy Edition | AU$59.95 AU$32 at Amazon (save AU$27.95)

The FIFA World Cup is here, having kicked off with the match between Qatar and Ecuador on Monday morning (AEST). So what a time to get your hands on the latest FIFA game and recreate the action for yourself, taking the wheel of your favourite team to fight for the trophy for just AU$29 thanks to this Black Friday bargain.

Animal Crossing New Horizons

Animal Crossing New Horizons | AU$79.95 AU$64 at Amazon (save AU$15.95)

Launching on the eve of the world's shutdowns due to the Covid pandemic, Animal Crossing New Horizons found a popularity even beyond the anticipation built for this one over the eight years since the prior release in the Animal Crossing series. One of the Nintendo Switch's most popular games, it has a 20% discount now but that discount was 32% to start last week so by all means wait for better if you're in no hurry.

Mario Party Superstars

Mario Party Superstars | AU$79.95 AU$69 at Amazon (save AU$10.95)

Released just over a year ago, Mario Party Superstars is the second Mario Party title to make its way to the Nintendo Switch and maintains the frenetic variety of fun and mayhem typical of the series, with 100 classic minigames for players to choose from and enjoy alongside their friends and family.

If you're keen to expand the fun and variety even further, the first Mario Party title for the Switch is also discounted by 20%.

Super Smash Bros Ultimate

Super Smash Bros Ultimate | AU$89.95 AU$69 at Amazon (save AU$20.95)

It may not be a 'new' game, but Super Smash Bros Ultimate remains the latest in the beloved Nintendo beat 'em up franchise and its sole entry for the Nintendo Switch. It's also as much fun as you'd expect from the title, offering one of the best multiplayer games for fun with family and friends that money can buy and on offer here with a 23% Black Friday saving in the mix.

New Tales from the Borderlands

New Tales from the Borderlands | AU$89.95 AU$34 at Amazon (save AU$55.95)

Only one month on from release, this latest entry into the Borderlands franchise's 'New Tales' graphic adventure spin-off series is a brilliant opportunity for franchise fans to dive back into the world(s) and story of Borderlands. And despite its so very recent release, it can be had here for a steal with a 57% discount.

Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga

Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga | AU$89.95 AU$51 at Amazon (save AU$38.95)

Star Wars fan? You're in luck! You can play your way through the entire Skywalker Saga for less than AU$50 thanks to this Black Friday deal, with the co-op option in this one making it possible for you to bring your best pal along for the ride! Starting with Phantom Menace and working your way to Rise of Skywalker in brick form, there's a lot of value and fun to be had with this one.

Metroid Dread

Metroid Dread | AU$79.95 AU$44.99 at Amazon (save AU$34.96)

A year on from the long awaited return of Samus Aran and the Metroid series, one of 2021's most popular titles for the Switch can be had at a discount. We very recently saw this one reach its lowest ever price of AU$35.99, but this one's on offer for just a fraction more if you're keen to jump on

Xenoblade Chronicles 3

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 | AU$79.95 RRP AU$59 at Amazon (save AU$20.95)

The Xenoblade Chronicles franchise might not capture the same level of mainstream attention as many of the other franchises that Nintendo publishes, but it would be safe to say that very few rival the consistency of Xenoblade. The franchise's third main instalment released earlier this year doesn't break this trend, as we even enjoyed it enough to give it a near-perfect review score.

Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes

Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes | AU$79.95 RRP AU$59 at Amazon (save AU$20.95)

Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes serves as a crossover of the game mechanics for hit franchises Fire Emblem and Dynasty Warriors, combining epic large-scale battles with the depth of a tactical RPG. A discount of $20 doesn't seem so generous at first but when you consider that Nintendo first-party titles rarely get discounts at all it starts to look a lot better.

Mario Golf: Super Rush

Mario Golf: Super Rush | AU$79.95 RRP AU$44.99 at Amazon (save AU$34.96)

Look, there's not a whole lot of ambiguity here. It's Mario, it's golf - together. If you like both you'll get a kick out of this one and if you like either you might get the same result. Either way, you're looking at its best ever price here so you've got very little to lose!

WarioWare Get It Together!

WarioWare Get It Together! | AU$69.95 RRP AU$34.99 at Amazon (save AU$34.96)

Oh sure, Mario gets all the attention, he gets the girls and even gets his own movie, but his arch-rival Wario might have him beat for the most frenetic, fun game on the Nintendo Switch. You'll be taken through a variety of mini-games brimming with humour and new ideas that either you or you and some pals can enjoy to your hearts' content. Here, it gets its price halved for the sake of your wallets ahead of Black Friday and there's never been a time to remind yourself that Mario isn't the only Italian plumber worth paying attention to.

Nintendo Switch Sports

Nintendo Switch Sports | AU$69.95 RRP AU$54 at Amazon (save AU$15.95)

One of 2022's most exciting new releases for the Nintendo Switch is a blast from the past, bringing the Nintendo Wii's Sports into the Switch era. This deal lets you grab the game and a joy-con leg strap (which you'll need to play games like soccer) for just AU$54. Not bad if you're getting ready to entertain and looking for a way to get active with your pals!

Black Friday Nintendo Switch deals: our predictions

Black Friday 2021 benefited from a more steady supply of consoles and larger discounts due to the launch of the Switch OLED one month beforehand. A year on, the OLED is set to be included among the discount opportunities for Black Friday 2022, having already received some discount opportunities over recent months.

Black Friday will also provide one of very few opportunities to grab first-party Nintendo games at a saving, given these titles generally don't budge much in terms of pricing. The likes of Mario, Link, Samus and co never lack for popularity, so Nintendo largely doesn't need to offer discounts on these titles with headline sales events the main exceptions. So if you were waiting to jump on one of Nintendo's first party titles, Black Friday 2022 is highly likely to be your best chance

When will Black Friday Nintendo Switch deals be available?

Black Friday this year kicks off on November 25, with the headline sales event running up to and including Cyber Monday on November 28. 

Still, retailers don't necessarily wait until the weekend proper to launch some great deals and there's every chance you could find a Nintendo Switch deal emerging in the weeks leading up to Black Friday and we'll collect any of those offers as they come up right here.

The top Nintendo Switch deals from 2021

To give you an idea of what to expect for Nintendo Switch deals from Black Friday 2022, we've collected some of the best deals from Black Friday sales in 2021 to help paint a picture.


Nintendo Switch OLED console + Snack World: The Dungeon Crawl Gold | AU$609 AU$499 (saving of AU$110)

This hot deal on the then-newly released Nintendo Switch OLED came as an exclusive for eBay Plus members and with stock limited to 400 units. Coming as a bundle with adventure title Snack World: The Dungeon Crawl - Gold, it's no surprise this deal quickly sold out.

Now, in 2022, the OLED is no longer new to the market and deals for this Switch edition are likely to be far more widespread. That doesn't mean they won't sell out though, so if you spot the perfect deal definitely don't be shy on jumping aboard.


Nintendo Switch + Mario Kart 8 Deluxe + 3-month Switch Online | AU$469 AU$399 on Amazon (saving of AU$70)

It's a pretty safe bet that Amazon will come through with some of the best Switch deals around Black Friday and the saving it offered on this hugely popular Nintendo Switch bundle last year is a good example of what to hope for. 

Coming with the neon version of the base console, plus a copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and a three month subscription to Nintendo Switch online, it's essentially the ideal Switch Starter Kit.


Metroid Dread | AU$79.95 AU$59 on Amazon (saving of AU$20.95)

As mentioned above, first-party Nintendo games like those of the hugely popular Metroid series generally don't get price cuts at the best of times - let alone six weeks after release.

That didn't stop Amazon from hitting one of 2021's most highly acclaimed releases with a 26% discount however. There might not be a new Switch exclusive release this year which can match Metroid Dread for anticipation or acclaim but consider 2022 hits like Pokemon Legends: Arceus, Kirby and the Forgotten Land and Nintendo Switch Sports likely candidates for discounts.


Super Smash Bros Ultimate | AU$89.95 AU$59 on Amazon (saving of AU$30.95)

One of the major reasons Nintendo generally don't have to discount their first-party titles is how timeless they generally are. You'd struggle to find a better example of that (beyond Mario Kart) than Super Smash Bros

Super Smash Bros as a franchise hasn't changed a whole lot since its very first entry for the Nintendo 64 (way back in 1999), but it hasn't needed to. Despite having faced no shortage of contenders, there still isn't a single fighting game that can match Smash Bros for serious fun and accessibility.

So it might not need a discount to sell big numbers consistently year after year, but Black Friday last year didn't stop short of gifting this one with a savings opportunity regardless.


The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild | AU$89.95 AU$59 on Amazon (saving of AU$30.95)

You can pretty safely consider this one the single most highly acclaimed game to have released on the Nintendo Switch. That's partly due to the legacy of the franchise, beginning with the very first Legend of Zelda game in 1986, but even among its consistent history Breath of the Wild stood out.

No pun intended, this one was a real breath of fresh air for the Zelda franchise that nobody even knew it needed. In 2022, gamers are eagerly anticipating the game's sequel due in May. With that being the case, many might consider jumping back on board with Breath of the Wild and consider a deal like this one from 2021 highly likely to reappear for Black Friday 2022.


Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons | AU$119.95 AU$89 on Amazon (saving up to AU$30.95)

Like Nintendo's first party games, the native accessories for its console don't often get discounts largely because they don't need to. With so many of the best Nintendo being better experienced with friends, adding controller options to your Switch is basically an essential and you can expect to be able to grab at least one hot deal on accessories like this one for Black Friday 2022.

Nintendo Switch OLED Model - White

Nintendo Switch OLED Model - White | AU$539 RRP AU$440.10 with code and eBay Plus membership (save AU$98.90 until November 9)

Considering a Nintendo Switch OLED? You can get it right now at an absolute steal thanks to Big W and eBay if you become an eBay Plus member and apply code PLUSFLASH2 at checkout. You can sign up to eBay Plus with a free 30 day trial and cancel anytime you like, or enjoy the benefits long term and pay as little as AU$4.99 a month. This deal ends November 9 so act quickly!
