Also, Nintendo has started announcing the big Switch games for 2021, including The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD and Mario Golf: Super Rush, both of which are out this summer. You can pre-order both at Amazon now. Earlier today, Nintendo also revealed Pokémon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl, both launching later this year, as well as 2022’s open-world Pokémon Legends: Arceus. Pre-order those at Best Buy!
Immortals Fenyx Rising | $30
Just released in December, Ubisoft’s Immortals Fenyx Rising is an open-world adventure inspired by Greek mythology as much as it is Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It hails from the developers of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, but is tighter in focus, cartoonish in style, and pretty funny to boot. It’s already half off at Amazon.
Last year’s new Pokémon adventure is currently $15 off the list price thanks to Amazon’s sale on Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX. It’s not one of the mainline Pokémon games: instead, it’s a dungeon crawler infused with the charm and character of the familiar universe. And it’s actually a remake of a 2005 Nintendo DS/Game Boy Advance game, just made newer, smarter, and better. Best Buy has it for the same price, too.
Pokkén Tournament DX | $45
Pokkén Tournament DX isn’t the most obvious Pokémon spinoff candidate, given that it’s basically a mash-up with the Tekken fighting game series… but surprisingly, it works. It’s entertaining, looks great, and has a very diverse cast of playable characters within. Save $15 off at either Amazon or Best Buy right now.
Super Mario 3D All-Stars | $50
You’ll get three classic 3D Mario adventures in one here: Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy, all enhanced to some extent and revived on Switch. Super Mario 3D All-Stars is a great throwback collection that is currently $10 off the list price.
Save $9 off the regular retail price for the new augmented reality, physical-meets-digital Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit, which lets you build a course around your home and then command an RC kart via your Switch. It was tough to find over the holidays, but now the Luigi version of the game sees a slight discount here.
Katamari Damacy Reroll | $20
One of the wackiest games ever made finds a great new home on Switch with Katamari Damacy Reroll. This enhanced version of the cult classic PlayStation 2 original still sees you rolling an ever-growing ball around levels as you collect items, animals, people, and quite a bit more. Why? Well, to create a new constellation in the sky and appease the King of All Cosmos. It’s a delight and it’s $10 off at Amazon right now.
Ring Fit Adventure | $70
Nintendo’s Ring Fit Adventure was damn near impossible to find during the first few months of the pandemic, but now Amazon has it in stock for $10 off. Ring Fit Adventure is a fitness-centric role-playing adventure that finds you slotting one Joy-Con controller into the included ring peripheral and attaching the other to your leg, using motion controls to challenge you while providing a surprisingly serious workout.
Nintendo’s biggest new Switch game is $10 off at Amazon right now. Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity revisits the world and characters of the brilliant The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but with frenetic hack-and-slash gameplay that’ll see you dispatch literally thousands of foes along the way.
Want an epic role-playing game to sink your teeth into? Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition refreshes the stellar original Wii odyssey with crisper graphics and a brand new epilogue, delivering the sci-fi quest for a new generation of players. It’s $16 off the list price right now from Amazon.
You never know when you might need an extra Switch controller or two handy, whether it’s for young kids or for friends and family. Assuming you don’t want to spend large for extra Joy-Cons or Pro Controllers, PowerA has this officially licensed wired Mario controller for $10 off right now.
While the Switch is hardly ground zero for fighting game action, it has some serious gems on it, including Mortal Kombat 11 and Dragon Ball FighterZ. If the Switch is your console of choice and you still want to get the arcade-style experience, grab this PowerA Fusion Wireless Arcade Stick while it’s half-off at $65. It has a full-sized joystick and buttons and can be used wirelessly via Bluetooth or wired via USB-C.
We don’t have any of the core Kingdom Hearts games on Switch, but at least you can savor the music from the beloved Disney/Final Fantasy mash-up role-playing series with the newly-released Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory. This rhythm game revisits the world and characters of the series in bite-sized chunks, which makes it ideal for Switch play. It’s $15 off at Amazon right now.
Give you Switch or Switch Lite console a safe slumber inside the dome of the sleepiest Pokémon thanks to this officially-licensed PowerA carrying case, now $8 off. Snorlax’s head opens up to reveal space for either handheld, a bevy of game cartridges, and accessories, and then it all zips back up with a handle for easy transport.
Just Dance 2021 | $30
Ubisoft’s juggernaut annualized dancing series just won’t stop, which means that Just Dance 2021 is here right on schedule. And right now, you can save $20 off the list price of the latest entry, which has hit songs like Lizzo’s “Juice” and The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights” in the mix. Get movin’ on this deal and then get movin’ in your home.
If you’re downloading games from the Switch eShop, then you’ll probably need some extra space. Luckily, the Switch accommodates affordable microSD cards, and there are even Nintendo-branded versions from SanDisk.
This official microSD card has a Mario mushroom on it and is currently on sale for $24, marked down $11. However, if you can deal without the branding, you can grab a standard 128GB SanDisk microSD card for $14… and it works just as well.
