Cyber Monday Nintendo Switch deals have kicked off today, after a long week of Black Friday mayhem. We've seen great discounts on OLED and vanilla Nintendo Switch bundles, and those are still live on this, the official final day of November's bargain bonanza.
We've been tracking Nintendo Switch deals for years now, so we know what a good bundle looks like and just how much you should be paying for each game. That means we have a pretty strong idea of how each year's Cyber Monday Nintendo Switch deals should play out.
See below all the best of what's out there now:
Where will the best Nintendo Switch Cyber Monday deals be in Australia?
We'll be rounding up all the best Cyber Monday Nintendo Switch deals right here, but if you're going it alone you'll find a list of recommended retailers and their specialities just below.
Amazon: The go-to e-tailer will have discounts on all Switch games and gear
JB Hi-Fi: Australia's biggest tech bricks and mortar will be worth keeping an eye on
eBay Australia: Whether direct or through a third-party seller, eBay is known to go big
The Gamesmen: Brilliant Aussie independent often surprises with its deals
Dell: Dell often has big discounts on great gaming monitors
Kogan: From games to accessories and TVs, Kogan will be worth the watch
Nintendo Switch Cyber Monday deals: games
Here's AU$20.95 off one of the Nintendo Switch's brightest diamonds. Yeah, it's not a steep discount, but it's give or take about as low as Nintendo tends to go on its big tentpole first-party games. If you've been yearning for a return to Mario 64 style 3D platforming, this is what you should play.
Mario Party Superstars |
AU$79.95 AU$59 at Amazon
A nice 26% off this brilliant collection of competitive Mario minigames, which will likely prove very popular with visiting relatives over the Christmas break. There are 100 minigames to play here, and while not all of them are incredible, a lot of them actually are!
Animal Crossing New Horizons |
AU$79.95 AU$59 at Amazon
This was down to AU$54.45 earlier in the week, so this isn't as cheap as Animal Crossing comes. But if you missed out, this is still a decent price. and are attracted to its carefree cozy ways, this is an ok price for which to gently snap it up.
Hot Wheels Unleashed 2 Turbocharged |
AU$79.95 AU$39 at Amazon
Whether you're a dyed in the wool Hot Wheels fanatic or just love high speed arcade racers, 51% off this recently released sequel is very hard to pass up. If realism stifles you and all you want from racers is big loops, big jumps, and absolutely mind-boggling track scenery, the Hot Wheels games are a must. Milestone is developer, so it has true racing cred.
Pokemon Sword |
AU$79.95 AU$59 at Amazon
This is one of the better Pokemon games you'll find on the Nintendo Switch, and that's saying a lot, considering how many there are. The Shield version of this outing isn't on sale, weirdly, but this one is, and for AU$20 below the usual price it's a good price for a big adventure.
Nintendo Switch Sports |
AU$69.95 AU$53.10 at Amazon
Here's a nice AU$10.95 discount on Nintendo's popular sports game, which comes bundled with a strap. While AU$59 is a good price, we may see it go lower come November 24, not to mention that there's a new bundle dropping on Black Friday pairing the game with a vanilla NIntendo Switch (see below). Also available at JB Hi-Fi for this price.
Xenoblade Chronicles 3 |
AU$79.95 RRP AU$49 at Amazon
If you're after a Switch JRPG that'll last you dozens of hours, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is among your best options. This jawdropping outing is exclusive to the Nintendo Switch, so it's among the best reasons to own the console. This discount is pretty decent, as far as first-party Switch deals go.
Nintendo Switch Cyber Monday deals: consoles
Nintendo Switch OLED Mario Kart 8 Deluxe bundle | AU$449
This is by far the star bundle of the season: a Nintendo Switch OLED model, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and three months of Nintendo Online for AU$449 - almost AU$100 below the RRP of an OLED by itself. This has been on pre-order for most of the week, so we knew it was coming... we just didn't know it'd drop to this price.
If you can get in quickly, the Kogan eBay store has a lightning deal for even cheaper at $436.78 including delivery. Make sure you apply the TSS100JTJYHXML7M code.
Nintendo Switch Sports console bundle | AU$399 at Amazon
A brand new Nintendo Switch bundle will drop on Black Friday, or at least, brand new to the Australian market. This one bundles a vanilla Nintendo Switch with Nintendo Switch Sports pre-installed. You also get a leg strap, all the better to simulate soccer.
Nintendo Switch Cyber Monday deals: Peripherals
Nintendo Switch Pro-Controller at Amazon |
A passable discount on the Switch's Pro-Controller; it's been this cheaper before, to the tune of AU$79, but this is still a nice discount. You're probably going to want this if you're a heavy docked user - especially if you love platformers (it's got a superior D-pad) and first-person shooters (it's got better analog sticks).
When will Cyber Monday Nintendo Switch deals start?
Cyber Monday Nintendo Switch deals will officially kick off on November 27 in 2023. However, we often see retailers keeping their Black Friday sale live over the weekend, and blending the two events by the time Sunday rolls around.
