Walmart has some of the best the Switch has to offer on sale right now. Not only can you save on great games, they also have free 2-day shipping. I don’t know about you, but that’s my absolute favorite kind of shipping. There’s also a great deal on a new Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Labo bundle.
These are pretty much the lowest prices these games have ever seen, or they match the historic lowest prices. And the Switch plus Labo bundle is a huge way to save, too. It’s not quite as great as the earlier bundled Switch and game deal, where you could pick from one of several games for $29 with a new Switch, but in terms of raw savings, it’s a better deal.
Nintendo Switch Mario Tennis Aces and 1-2 Switch Bundle for $359
This recently announced Switch bundle comes with two games: the super-fun Mario Tennis Aces and 1-2 Switch. It also comes with the neon red and blue Joy-con, which is the best version anyway. The bundle comes out at the beginning of September and Walmart has free 2-day shipping, to further sweeten the deal.
Nintendo Switch and Labo Bundle for $339
Labo is such a pure Nintendo idea, if you haven’t picked up a Switch yet, this is the best possible way to immerse yourself in pure Nintendo love. You can choose either the Labo Variety kit or the Labo Robot kit and the bundle is still $339. The robot kit is the better value in this case, but it’s your call as to which kit you prefer. Both are fun and oddly soothing to assemble.
Oh, and these have free 2-day shipping, as well.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for $44.99
This is one of my personal favorite games of all time. I just love how alive the world feels. When I first played it, I watched a deer resting in a field. It began to rain and the deer looked up, almost like it was verifying the change in weather for itself. It then trotted off into the woods.
Super Mario Odyssey for $44.99
Super Mario Odyssey contains one of my all-time favorite moments in gaming, period. I won’t spoil it, but there was a level that had me smiling the entire time. It was a loving tribute to Mario’s history, made playable and set to an incredible soundtrack. I think I might revisit Odyssey after work today.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for $44.99
Mario Kart 8 originally came out for Wii U, and a lot of people missed it because they didn’t own one. Well, not me. I bought a Wii U on day one. I don’t even care, I think it’s a great system with a fantastic library. But since it’s likely you don’t own a Wii U, this Switch version is superior anyway.
Mario Tennis Aces for $44.99
Now hold on a second, this game just came out! And like a fool I bought it for full price. I feel like I’ve betrayed myself. This is a great return to form for Mario and his tennis playing friends. It has all the weird charm you probably expect from a Mario sports game and is a great deal.
Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu/Eevee Bundles for $99 ea.
These aren’t on sale, but you might as well go ahead and preorder them if you haven’t already. Inside every Poke Ball Plus is a tiny Mew, waiting for you. That’s reason enough to get the game right there, as far as I’m concerned.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for $47.99
Another upcoming game, this one is actually on sale… if you have Amazon Prime. If you don’t, you’ll need to search elsewhere for savings, I’m afraid. If you order Super Smash Bros. Ultimate before the December 7 release date, you can get it delivered in time to start Smashing with everyone else.
Preorder Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Official GameCube Controller
In a move that surprised no one, Nintendo announced GameCube controller are part of the new Smash Bros. experience. If you let your mom donate your old GameCube stuff to the thrift shop or gave it all to your younger cousin, fear not. There’s an all-new, official GameCube controller coming.
Preorder Nintendo Switch GameCube Controller Adapter
If you had a Wii U with Smash, like I did, and you bought the GameCube controller adapter, like me, then you don’t need to buy this. Your Wii U adapter works with Nintendo Switch. If you missed out, you can get yourself a new one, no problem.
