Amazon Prime Day will soon come to a close tonight at 11:59 p.m. PT, but many Nintendo Switch deals are still live. Although a handful of popular games like “Pokemon Sword and Shield” and “Let’s Go Pikachu” have sold out already, plenty more discounts remain.
The Switch has been the bestselling gaming console during a record-setting year for video game sales, drawing in millions of new players with its unique portable design and exclusive titles like “Super Mario,” “Pokemon,” and “The Legend of Zelda.”
Increased demand in 2020 has made the $300 Switch and $200 Switch Lite hard to find for most of the year, and while both devices are available again on Amazon, we don’t expect to see them discounted. Instead, your best deal bets will be on games and accessories.
We’ve rounded up the best Prime Day Nintendo Switch deals still going, including games, cases, accessories, and more. For discounts on more than just Switch gaming gear, check out our coverage on all of the Prime Day gaming deals.
Although many of the popular Switch games that were discounted on the first day of Prime Day are no longer available from Amazon, you can still find them on sale elsewhere. Here’s where you can find “Super Mario Party,” at lower-than-usual prices.
From memory cards to cases and chargers, you’ll find Prime Day sales on Switch accessories, mainly from third-party makers.
Standard Switch consoles aren’t being discounted and it’s highly unlikely it will be anytime soon, but a Switch Lite bundle with a 128GB SD card is available for $225, which saves about $10 if you were to buy both separately.
Amazon Prime Day 2020 officially launched on October 13 and will run through October 14.
Of course, you’ll need an Amazon Prime subscription to access all of the Prime Day deals. A Prime subscription goes for $13 a month or $120 annually. Amazon Prime subscribers have lots of benefits that are included with the service, most importantly the free two-day shipping on many items, the ability to stream Amazon Prime Video, and much more.
This post will be updated as new sales start, so check back regularly. For more Prime Day coverage, you can follow all the best Prime Day tech deals here.
Nintendo offers two versions of the Switch — the $300 standard console and the $200 Switch Lite. Both consoles run the same games, but there are some key differences with the hardware.
The standard Switch has two removeable “Joy-cons” that can be used as controllers, and can be connected to a television. The Switch Lite’s controls cannot be removed from the screen and it cannot use the Switch dock to connect to a larger TV or monitor. This also means that games that require the Joy-cons for motion control, like “Super Mario Party,” will require a separate controller with the Switch Lite.
The difference in size has some other impacts, too. The Switch Lite has a 5.5-inch screen while the standard Switch has a 6.2-inch screen. The standard Switch’s battery can last for up to nine hours, while the Switch Lite tops out at seven hours.
