The best Nintendo Switch bundles and deals in February 2018

Nintendo Switch bundle deals

Nintendo Switch bundle deals have stepped up a gear now and we've seen huge numbers of them selling in recent months as retailers have put together packages with extra games, controllers or accessories. Stock levels are so much better now compared to last year too.

Bundle prices in the US are holding steady, but at least you can find plenty with the best Nintendo Switch games like Super Mario Odyssey, Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8: Deluxe and more. In the UK, retailers are knocking money off plenty of bundles. The best this week sees Argos include FIFA 18 for free. Our other highlights include big discounts on Nintendo Switch deals with Super Mario Odyssey, Mario + Rabbids and more. 

You'll find all the best Nintendo Switch bundles from reliable retailers below. We've also rounded up the best prices for extra Joy-Con controllers, Pro controllers and even some cheap Nintendo Switch memory cards.

If you're waiting for more games to arrive first, get your Ninty dose fixed with a cheap 3DS deal. We have a dedicated page of Switch deals for our Australian readers too.

Nintendo Switch bundles (USA)

To be honest, we're just not seeing many retailers other than GameStop offering bundles this week, not ones that that don't cost more than buying the items individually at least.

We've highlighted our picks of the best Nintendo Switch bundles below. Just be aware that they don't really offer much of a discount over buying the items separately. We'll steer you clear of console bundles that actively charge you more than the regular combined RRP (not cool, guys!).

Nintendo Switch | carry case | play stand | $323 at Amazon
This Nintendo Switch bundle comes with a carry case that is ideal if you're taking the Switch out of the home and it has space for game cartridges and accessories too. You're also getting a play stand which will make it easier putting the console in a viewable position wherever you are. View this bundle at Amazon.

Nintendo Switch | Super Mario Odyssey | $359.99 at GameStop
Super Mario Odyssey was more than worth the wait and is another fine addition to the growing collection of quality Nintendo Switch exclusives. Savings are at a minimum here, but seeing as this game should amongst your most wanted, this bundle is a great place to start.

Nintendo Switch | Zelda: Breath of the Wild | $359.99 at GameStop
Despite being out for months now, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is still $60 at most stores, so this Nintendo Switch bundle isn't as overpriced as it looks. And let's face it, with stock continuing to sell out, there's not much incentive for stores like GameStop to knock any money off a deal like this.

Nintendo Switch | Mario Kart 8: Deluxe | $359.99 at GameStop
With so many people missing out on the original Mario Kart 8 on the ill-fated Wii U, it's great to see it get another chance on the Switch and with all the DLC thrown in too (hence the 'Deluxe'). Race on over to GameStop to take a look.

Nintendo Switch | Sonic Forces | $339.99 at GameStop
This is the cheapest Nintendo Switch bundle we've seen that comes with a game. In all honesty though, Sonic Forces forces is pretty average and the extra $20 is more than worth it for the likes of Zelda or Mario instead. If you're buying a Switch bundle as a present, this could be one to avoid. Loyal Sonic fans on the other hand may want to take a look. Then buy Sonic Mania instead.

Nintendo Switch | Rayman Legends | £289.99 @ Currys
As much as we love Rayman, we imagine many gamers have already played it or one of the multiple remasters over the years, so perhaps some of the other Nintendo Switch deals would be a better match. This is £10 cheaper than it was last week though. You can also get the same Nintendo Switch deal with the grey version.

Nintendo Switch Q&A

As with any new console we imagine you're wanting to know a bit more about the console before you put any money down. So in addition to finding the best Nintendo Switch deals, we're going to help bring in answers to the burning questions.

Nintendo Switch Joy con controller deals

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 18 and many more. Or maybe you just fancy some different colors for your own use.

Nintendo Switch Joy Con Grip controller

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.

Is there a Nintendo Switch Pro controller?

Yes and it doesn't come with the console. But you won't actually need one 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 currently no sign of a Nintendo Switch Premium Edition console with one included.

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. So far we've seen 2K's NBA series, Snipper Clips 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!

Super Mario Odyssey deals

This has been one of the best games on the Nintendo Switch so far and an absolute must for Mario and platforming fans. Like Zelda below though, this being a first-party Nintendo title, it's taking forever to go down in price. It's slowly happening though, so we've rounded up the cheapest Super Mario Odyssey prices for you below. If you're not getting this game in a bundle, we'd strongly advise picking it up separately as soon as possible.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild deals

The reviews have heaped huge praise upon this eagerly awaited launch title, making it an essential purchase for any Nintendo Switch buyer. As with any new console, the prices of the big games can be more expensive than usual. We've shopped around for you though and have found the best prices for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on the Nintendo Switch. Take a look below.

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 will be releasing 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.
