As part of its Labor Day sale, Best Buy is offering $20 discounts on Nintendo Switch games until the end of the day. And these aren't just third-party games you won't give a damn about – they're full-fat Nintendo-developed games featuring Mario and other favorites. In addition, a whole bunch of Nintendo Switch-related accessories are discounted for the time being.
Five games are in the sale: New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe (opens in new tab), Super Mario Maker 2 (opens in new tab), Yoshi's Crafted World (opens in new tab), Splatoon 2 (opens in new tab) and Mario Tennis Aces (opens in new tab). From that selection, paint-based shooter Splatoon 2 and New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe are our recommendations, as well as Super Mario Maker 2, assuming you've got the patience to create your own Mario levels (though you can also enjoy those by other people).
