We're rounding up all the best Mario Day deals, so you know exactly which sales you should be looking at as we celebrate Nintendo's plumber. While we're seeing plenty of Nintendo Switch games and accessories discounted today, however, you'll also find plenty of consoles back on the shelves as well. 

The standout pick is this Mario Red & Blue Nintendo Switch console. Best Buy currently has the special edition listed for its $299.99 MSRP, which is particularly exciting considering this colorway sold out at release and hasn't been seen since. 

Mario Day deals, however, are thriving in the software section. Nintendo Switch games like Super Mario Odyssey, Super Mario Maker 2, New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, and Super Mario Party are all down to $38.88 (was $59.99) at Walmart right now. However Mario doesn't get to have all the fun - we've also spotted some other franchises getting in on the discounts, with the likes of The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate seeing $10 discounts this week as well. 

If you need a new gamepad, however, you're shopping at the right time. The Nintendo Switch Pro Controller is now down to just $59 (was $69.99) in these Mario Day deals, and you'll even find $10 off a range of Joy-Con controllers as well.

You'll find all our top picks for the best Mario Day deals just below.
