Since the Switch is still a relatively new console that’s selling well, we haven’t seen very many discounts on it. The ones we do see usually come in the form of some sort of bundle deal, which might stick you with accessories or games you don’t really want. Best Buy has a new bundle deal of its own on offer currently, but this time around, you get to pick the game it comes with.
Polygon notes that the retailer is currently offering a Nintendo Switch console and a game from a small-but-excellent selection for $329.99. The games you can choose from include The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and Splatoon 2 – all of them first-party games that are definitely worth checking out.
Indeed, that’s a pretty impressive list of titles, and it includes two that have certainly helped drive sales of the Switch on their own: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey. Both can be counted among the best games of 2017, though that doesn’t necessarily mean that the other two aren’t worthy of consideration.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, for instance, can be considered to be not only the definitive edition of Mario Kart 8, but one of the best games in the franchise. Splatoon 2, on the other hand, might be a little different from other multiplayer shooters, but it’s managed to attract a sizable audience thanks to the unique quirks it brings to the table.
It’s worth pointing out that later on this month, you’ll need a Switch Online subscription to play both Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Splatoon 2 online, so if you want to avoid paying that extra fee, it might be a better idea to go with Breath of the Wild or Super Mario Odyssey. Polygon says this deal ends on September 8, so if you’re going to take advantage of it, you’ll want to do that soon.
