When Black Friday draws near, this marks the third time the Nintendo Switch has become a favorite for holiday shopping.
We're dizzy with excitement for the possibility of a great offer. Nintendo released an upgraded Switch back in August that brought about 50% of battery life (from a maximum of 6.5 hours to about nine hours). And there is new Change Lite also – smaller handheld version with a 7 hour battery life.
All good reasons to take the Switch during sales.
The best Nintendo Switch offer for Black Friday
There is only oneout there now, but if we see more, we will add it here. Also be sure to check out the best Nintendo Switch offer on GameSpot.
Nintendo is combining the download code for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe with the first gen version of the Switch for $ 300, and throwing a screen protector too. That's a solid deal, but realize that you get an OG Switch, not a new one. Because that means your battery life will be somewhere between 2.5 and 6.5 hours, you might want to take advantage of this deal only if you are mostly planning to stay docked. For many remote missions, you might want to continue this and get Switch v2. See this CNET article that tells you how to distinguish between two Switch consoles by looking at the check box. This agreement began on November 28.

The Switch Lite is only a month old, and for that reason alone, don't hold your breath to see offers for Black Friday 2019. It's $ 200 everywhere now (don't wait until Black Friday), and that's where I expect to see a fixed price until the end year. But that is not a bad price, and if you insist on sticking to hardware sales, yes, you might wait until Black Friday 2020. It is said, if you are already sitting on the fence, now is the time to make the switch, referred to by Scott Stein of CNET, "probably the best $ 200 gaming laptop I have ever used."

What if you already have a Switch, and you are passionate for some games? We've covered you – here are some interesting offers that we got. Read the details carefully, because some of these transactions begin before Black Friday. Wait too long and you might miss.
It's hard not to like Breath of the Wild, which is probably Zelda's best installment of all time (sorry, Ocarina of Time). This game should sell for $ 40 pretty much everywhere, but Walmart will sell it for only $ 30 for a limited time starting on Wednesday, November 27th at 7 pm. PT.

Can you play singles or doubles with up to four local or online players? Yes. It looks like you have to win this title, which is also available at a price of less than $ 40, will be charged elsewhere starting Wednesday, November 27th at 7pm. PT.

If you are a fan of paintball battles – either real types that no one tells you can give you welts, or virtual types in the form of videogames – then Splatoon might have a special place in your heart. Splatoon 2 starts rather long in gear (released in 2017) but is still a blast, and Technicolor's paint-based battles are still thrilling and captivating. Starting on Wednesday, November 27th at 7 pm PT, you can get it at Walmart for about $ 10 less than other places.

This game is also around the block, but is so loved that I can't help but put it on this list. Like most of the other games that I have listed here, you will be able to grab it at half the price for a limited time starting on Wednesday, November 27th at 7pm. PT.
