The Nintendo Switch is a tricky console to find cheap; it tends to hold its value. Accordingly, it's often cheaper to buy the Switch by itself and add on games later. You can find the best console-only deals below.

Accessories

Because of the Switch’s portable nature, accessories like carry-cases come highly recommended. Upgrading its memory with an SD card is also essential: with just 32GB of internal storage, it won’t be long before you’ve filled the Switch up. You can find our suggestions below. Alternatively, head over to our Nintendo Switch accessories page for more. 

The best Nintendo Switch SD Card - SanDisk Ultra 128GB MicroSDXC

One of our few issues with the Nintendo Switch is that it doesn’t come with much internal memory - only 32GB, to be precise. This becomes a real problem when you want to install more than a couple of games on it. Enter the SanDisk Ultra 128GB SD card. At around $30, it’s not going to break the bank and will quadruple your storage space. This should allow you to store between 5-10 big games.

You can always get a smaller 64GB card if you don’t think you’ll be getting many games, of course. That one goes for around $25. Check out our full list of Nintendo Switch SD cards for more.

The best Nintendo Switch carry case - Orzly

Because you’re likely to be carting your Switch from place to place, getting a carry case or protective shell should be high on your priority list. The official Nintendo case is arguably one of best around, but its Orzly equivalent gets our recommendation for being such an effective all-rounder. A hardened outer layer hides enough room for your console, multiple Joy-Cons, cables, and 8 Switch games - more than the competition. It’s not too expensive, either.

If you’d prefer to see what all the options are, make sure you see our guide to the best case for Nintendo Switch

Nintendo Switch Pro Controller

While the standard Joy-Cons are excellent pieces of kit, the Pro Controller is what you want if you're intending to play more traditional games like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate or Dark Souls Remastered. Like everything Nintendo builds, it's of great quality and makes a noticeable difference to your overall experience.
