It's March 10, which means it's Mario Day (Mar10 - get it? It's oh so clever). And while that tenuous leap may scream gimmicky marketing ploy, it does mean there are a whole load of deals on Nintendo Switch games, accessories and related goodies to celebrate the peppy plumber's birthday.

If you just want to get stuck in and see all the Mario Day 2022 sales, you can jump to one of the major retailers below to see all the available Nintendo Switch deals. The items on offer are mostly the same no matter where you shop, but there are a couple of different games or Lego sets that are only reduced at specific stores. To ensure you don't miss out on anything, though, you can see our roundup of all the highlights further below.

The biggest offer in the Mario Day sale has to be Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for $39.99 (opens in new tab) (was $59.99). The Nintendo Switch racer is one of the console's biggest games and still continues to sell many years from launch – that just shows how popular it is. With classic Mario Kart DLC tracks on the way, you'll have many corners to drift around and blue shells to lob a long time yet. If you haven't picked it up yet, don't miss the chance to do so for its cheapest price in months.

If you want to take your racing into the realm of augmented reality then Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit is also down to $59.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab) (was $99.99). This fascinating toy/game hybrid is one of the most unique Nintendo Switch titles as it allows you to create your own Mario Kart tracks around the home and race through them using an AR-enabled kart. Multiplayer for up to two players is supported, but you do need to buy a second kart.

There are various other first-party Nintendo Switch games reduced as well, including Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury (opens in new tab), Luigi's Mansion 3 (opens in new tab) and Super Mario Maker 2 (opens in new tab), many of which are down to some of the lowest prices we've seen.

And while all of these have been on offer for most of the week, there are a few new Mario Day deals now March 10 is actually here. The best of this new batch? It's Super Mario Party for just $29.99 at Best Buy (opens in new tab) - that's a huge $30 off the usual price.
