Black Friday is all about snagging the best deal on popular products. To help you know more about what you're buying, and to help you make the most educated choice possible, here's what you need to know about the Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo Switch details

The newest in Nintendo's long line of consoles, the Switch (released in 2016) is one of the most in-demand gaming systems. It's what's known as a "hybrid" console. That means the console can be docked into a docking station connected to a television (like a more traditional console). Or, the main unit can be portable and used similarly to a handheld gaming device.

The Switch uses controllers called Joy-Cons and also supports a variety of other devices.

In September 2019, Nintendo launched a new version of the Switch for $199.99. The Nintendo Switch Lite is compact and lightweight. The system is designed for handheld play and includes built-in controllers. Best of all, the system plays the entire library of Nintendo Switch games that work in handheld mode.

Nintendo Switch games

You can obtain games for your Nintendo Switch by buying cartridges at retailers, or by downloading them digitally in the Nintendo eShop.

The Switch's game lineup includes many of Nintendo's most beloved franchises, including:

  • Super Mario Odyssey
  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
  • Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Nintendo Switch deals

We haven't seen any deals or discounts for the Switch, but that could all change with Black Friday 2019.

Last year, the Switch was offered at full price ($299) by various retailers. However, it did include other bonuses like gift cards and games with purchase. However, given its high demand, just getting the console was enough for many holiday shoppers.

This year, we hope to see some deeper discounts on the Switch or bundles that include games and Joy-Cons. Check out retailers like GameStop, Target, Best Buy and Walmart for the best deals.

Stay tuned for the best Nintendo Switch Black Friday Deals for 2019.
