The best Nintendo Switch deals are still reserved for the Lite console this week, as stock of the main console continues to struggle to recover. However, we are seeing a return of the handheld only console to shelves, with the US receiving steady stock at GameStop. The UK was previously enjoying a swathe of Nintendo Switch Lite bundles on offer, though with Currys now out of stock those offers have dried up. Very has swooped in with some offers of its own, however, so there are still plenty of Nintendo Switch deals to shop.
We're keeping a watchful eye on stock in the US and UK, so bookmark this page as we'll be updating it throughout the week if we get even a sniff of a Joy-Con hitting store shelves. However, until then, we're seeing some fantastic Nintendo Switch Lite bundles available in the UK, with the US slowly picking up stock as well. We don't know when Nintendo Switch deals will return, but until then, we're also taking a look at the best retailers to check when those console do land on the shelves again.
So, if you're after Nintendo Switch bundle deals you may be waiting a little longer. If you're in the UK and want to get your hands on Nintendo's catalog of excellent titles, however, there are plenty Nintendo Switch Lite bundles available for delivery right now.
You'll find it difficult to get your hands on a Nintendo Switch console right now, and while the Switch Lite is still very much available, if you're looking for big-screen gaming there are some fantastic Xbox One and PS4 deals going right now.

Nintendo Switch bundles: how to spot a good deal
Just because a Nintendo Switch bundle is cheap doesn't make it a good deal. Many retailers often include cheaper games with their Nintendo Switch bundles and still charge standard price. Games readily available for $20 - $30 can sneak their way into the premium-priced deals, lowering the overall value of the offering. In this case, it's worth picking up a Nintendo Switch deal with a full $60 game and grabbing the cheaper title separately if you're desperate to play it. For this reason, it's always worth double checking the going price of the bundled game you're picking up against the overall cost to make sure you're getting a good deal.

Nintendo Switch Lite
The Nintendo Switch Lite was recently released at just $199.99/£199.99. That's $100/£80 less than the original Switch console. If you want to play games on the TV as well, you should go for the standard Nintendo Switch instead as the Lite is only playable in handheld mode.
The Nintendo Switch Lite comes in multiple colour options. You can pick one up now in turquoise, gray and yellow. There will also be a special edition Zacian & Zamazenta Edition released on November 8 to celebrate the release of Pokémon Sword and Shield. It doesn't come with the game, but doesn't cost anything extra either. If you want to learn more about the console and see prices for every individual color and bundle, check out our Nintendo Switch Lite prices and deals guide.
How to buy the right Nintendo Switch
The updated version of the original Nintendo Switch is now being rolled out with an improved battery. That's the only change, but prices are generally the same as the older model. The old version model number was HAC-001 and the box featured a lifestyle image with a hand grabbing the console. While the new model number is HAC-001(-01) and the box has an all-red background and no hand.
What are the Joy-Con controllers?
The Joy-Con controller is actually a pair of controllers that attach to the sides the the Nintendo Switch when not in use or when playing in tablet form away from the TV. When playing the Nintendo Switch on the TV, you can remove them and play with one in each hand. The left hand gets a controller with an analogue stick and d-pad, the right hand handles the one with a second analogue and the usual A, B, X and Y face buttons. Or you and a friend can use one each in multiplayer games with the d-pad doubling up as impromptu face buttons.
You get a pair with the console, but you might want to buy more to allow extra players to get involved in games like Mario Kart 8, FIFA 19 and many more. Or maybe you just fancy some different colors for your own use.
Extra Joy-Con deals
What's the Joy-Con Grip controller?
The Joy-Con Grip is an additional accessory that joins the two Joy-Con controllers together, forming something something a bit more solid for you to hold thanks to the extended handles and plastic block between the two sides. The square dimension form-factor may remind older gamers of the Dreamcast controller, while everyone else will mainly be thinking how it resembles an odd-looking dog face. Nintendo is providing one in the box with the Nintendo Switch, so you won't have to buy one separately. This won't charge your controller though and doesn't have a battery pack.
Nintendo Switch Pro controller deals
You won't actually need a Nintendo Switch Pro controller to play any games, so don't feel pressured in to buying one. The Nintendo Switch Pro controller is a more traditional-style pad and launched alongside the Nintendo Switch. Prices aren't cheap though, starting around $69.99/£64.99. There's no sign of a Nintendo Switch Premium Edition console with one included either.
Do I need to buy extra controllers for multiplayer on Nintendo Switch?
Possibly not! Remember how the Joy-Con controller splits in two? Turn them sideways and you get two basic controllers, each with their own analogue stick and face buttons - the d-pad acts as face functions on the left controller. We've seen 2K's NBA series, Snipper Clips, FIFA 19, and Mario Kart being used this way for local multiplayer in both docked and tablet modes. So you get multiplayer functionality straight out of the box with no additional purchase required.
However, if you want to play four-player games, then you're going to need to invest in an extra pair of Joy-Con controllers or some Pro controllers. We'd buy the Joy-Cons as a pair (see our comparison chart above) as you'll save a bit of cash over buying them separately. Better yet, if your friends own a Switch, ask them to bring their controllers to the party!
Nintendo Switch Micro SD memory card deals
With only 32GB of internal storage, you'll be wanting to pick up a cheap memory card or two for your new Nintendo Switch for any digital purchases or the inevitable game-fixing patches. Don't fret though, they're actually surprisingly cheap, with even 64GB ones coming in at under £20/$25.
What memory cards does the Nintendo Switch need? Those will be Micro SD cards also known as, depending on their size, as MicroSDHC (up to 32GB) or MicroSDXC (up to a huge 2TB soon). Nintendo also has their own branded cards, but you'll be paying more just for a label. So for now, we'd take a look at this range of cheap MicroSDXC Nintendo Switch-friendly cards.
