In the two years since it launched, Nintendo hasn’t been too keen on offering Switch below the $300 price point. The hybrid console has sold well at its current price point, so Nintendo simply hasn’t felt the market pressure to offer many cost-saving bundles or discounts. However, they’ve just unveiled a pretty sweet deal for North America.
Starting on Friday, February 15th, you’ll be able to get a standard Nintendo Switch for the usual $300 price tag, but with the included bonus of a $35 Nintendo eShop gift card. Most first-party Nintendo games cost $60, so this would cover just over half the cost. Alternatively, the eShop is full of fantastic indie games in the $10 – $20 range, so you could easily pick up two or three of them. Here’s
a few we recommend.
