Either way, there’s some great Nintendo Switch deals available right now, and we’ve rounded up all of them for you here.

Have you finally decided to buy yourself a Switch and are really interested in this Animal Crossing game everyone was deeply obsessed with back in 2020? Or are you already a dyed in the wool Animal Crossing fanatic who really wants to commit to a very specific aesthetic? In either case, the special Animal Crossing edition of the Nintendo Switch is currently on sale.

This special edition Switch was released alongside New Horizons, and you can currently pick up the console by itself for $419 and save yourself just over $50. You can also snag a Switch bundle deal that includes the console and a copy of Animal Crossing: New Horizons for $487 (down from $549).

If you aren’t too fussed about owning a themed console, you can also snag a pretty solid bundle deal that includes a Switch, a digital copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and three months of Switch Online. This bundle will set you back $448 all up, which is pretty decent considering that it’d cost around $560 if bought separately.

The Animal Crossing bundle deal is available here, while the Mario Kart bundle is available here.

One of the best deals that you can currently pick up for your Nintendo Switch is this 256GB Samsung EVO Plus Micro SD that’s currently on sale for $46.58, down from $89.95. We’ve written about the importance of increasing your Switch’s internal storage capacity before, and being able to boost it from 32GB or 64GB up to 256GB for under $50 is still a great deal.

If you’re looking to pick up another pair of Joy-Cons, be it to replace your drifting ones or to just have a second set on hand, Amazon Australia and Catch are both selling most versions of the paddle controllers for $109. Catch also has the Purple/Orange pair on sale for $108 too.

If you favour the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller, Amazon Australia, Target and JB Hi-Fi are currently selling it for $89, down from $99.95. You can also save a bit over $20 off our favourite third-party Switch controller, the 8BitDo Pro 2.
