Ahead of Black Friday 2020, one of Nintendo’s best deals is available early. If you’re looking to buy a Nintendo Switch, Best Buy is offering a bundle that includes the console, a digital code for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and three months of Nintendo Switch Online for just $ 300. It’s a one-time deal – Nintendo Switch costs $ 300, a copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe costs $ 60, and three months of Nintendo Switch Online is $ 8.
The Nintendo Switch included in the bundle is the updated model, as confirmed to us by a spokesperson for Best Buy. The updated Switch model includes two hours more battery life than the original model. While in the handheld, the updated Switch can be used between 4.5am to 9am on a single charge, depending on the games you play.
While one can explain why these three products alone are good gifts, this set is ideal for late users of Nintendo’s hybrid console. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is a great game to play with family or friends, and if you want to play online, you will need a Nintendo Switch Online membership. In addition to access to online Nintendo games like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Switch Online also includes access to digital games such as Tetris 99, as well as a selection of NES and Super NES titles.
