If you want to get the best Black Friday Switch deals, you can count on your pals here at Pocket Tactics to do that for you. We’ll be searching every dark corner of the internet so that we can bring together all the best Nintendo Switch deals in one place. We’ve also got a great Mario and Sonic Black Friday deal on Humble Bundle if that takes your fancy.
If you’ve been eyeing up the Nintendo Switch all year, Black Friday or Cyber Monday may give you the ideal time to pull the trigger. Not only might this special sales season give you an opportunity to get the console itself at a discount price, but there are often big discounts on bundles too – saving you even more money which you could then spend on more games or accessories.
Meanwhile, Nintendo fans know oh, so well, that being a fan of the Big N isn’t exactly cheap. Many of the best Switch games have been out for about five years now, and they still cost around the same amount as they did when they first came out. Black Friday might be a great opportunity to grab some of those classic Switch games on the cheap.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Animal Crossing: New Horizons is currently available at $39.99 USD (30% off) from Best Buy. In the UK, you can get it for £36.99 GBP on Amazon (26% off).
The game that single-handedly got a lot of people through the lockdowns. Animal Crossing: New Horizons is the latest instalment in Nintendo’s ever-popular life sim series, and this time you’ve got more customisation options than ever before.
At the start of the game, you land on a desert island and it’s up to you to cultivate and develop it however you see fit – from choosing the residents who live there, to placing attractions, and even adjusting the shape of the land itself. Visiting your island to do your daily tasks will soon become part of your regular de-stressing routine and before you know it, you’ll have spent 500 hours on it.
The latest outing for the blue blur received mixed reviews, but one thing is for sure: Sonic fans love it. You can learn more in our Sonic Frontiers review, or you can just grab this deal at Best Buy and save $20.
