Nintendo’s brand new console is a bit of a unique one in its field. The Nintendo Switch is a hybrid system, designed to be equally a home console and a handheld one and it balances that quite magnificently. Here, we’ll take a look at the best Nintendo Switch deals available right now and the best bundles on offer.
If you do decide to pick up a Nintendo Switch console you’re probably going to want to get a couple of extras to go along with your purchase. First, you’ll want to pick up a carry case, which you can find in our guide to the best Nintendo Switch accessories. Next, you may want to grab yourself a Switch screen protector, which we have a guide for as well. Finally, sooner or later, you’re going to want to pick up a Micro SD card for Nintendo Switch. Got all that? Then check out some of the best Nintendo Switch games on offer. With all that taken care of, Let’s get to the console deals.
For more console deals:
The Nintendo Switch isn’t quite like any console on the market right now and, indeed, unlike almost any console released to this day. It’s a hybrid system that lets players enjoy games on a big TV screen at a full 1080p resolution and then, whenever needed, the console can be undocked and played handheld wherever it may be needed – whether that’s in another room or another country. Return home to your Switch dock and all you’ll need to do is slip the Switch back into its dock and the image will appear back on the TV within seconds.
The Nintendo Switch was officially unveiled a mere six months before the system hit store shelves in March 2017 and went on to become Nintendo’s fastest selling console to date, shipping just shy of three million units by the end of its first month on sale. That’s thanks in no small part to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild being a Nintendo Switch launch title, especially since that game actually managed to sell slightly more Switch copies than Nintendo sold Switch consoles that month.
The Switch is comprised of the tablet-like system itself, along with a pair of Joy-Con controllers for left and right hands, which detach from the console and can slide into separate holders. Inside the box, you’ll also get the dock, which cradles the Switch console and enables the picture to be transferred to a TV or monitor, as well as the power supply and USB-C cable to make it all come together. As previously mentioned, storage can be added using Micro SD and SDXC cards, although the system does come loaded with 32GB of storage by default.
Right, without further hesitation, let’s take a look at the best Nintendo Switch deals available right now.
