Want cheap Nintendo Switch deals? You've picked a good time to look - the Black Friday game deals are finally here, and bargains on Nintendo's console are following close behind. For example, Walmart's $299 bundle gets you the Spyro Reignited Trilogy for free. That's a discount of $35, a very respectable saving on a console that rarely goes on offer in the first place. Happily, you're also getting the upgraded version of the Nintendo Switch here; it packs longer, superior battery-life when compared to the original model. Because portability is a huge part of the Switch's appeal, that makes this deal even more compelling.

The Spyro Reignited Trilogy is more than a fresh coat of paint for the original games, too. As well as giving the lovable - but pixellated - dragon a graphical do-over, it provides extra challenges, new animations, bonus details, and a beautiful recreation of the original soundtrack. As we mentioned in our review that awarded it four out of five stars, it was "not always the journey I expected or remembered, but it's a joyous trip down memory lane well worth taking". This is a good cheap Nintendo Switch deal as a result, and we're unlikely to get anything better until - and perhaps even after - the Nintendo Switch Black Friday sales begin in earnest.

It's worth reiterating that this offer gets you the newer version of the Nintendo Switch, too. It has a longer battery life, and because part of the Switch's appeal is taking it to game on the go, that's a real bonus. Not that you can't use it at home on a TV, of course - it's still compatible with your screen at home (which you can always upgrade with these Black Friday TV deals).

If portability is your priority, have you considered the Lite? This handheld-only console is cheaper and easier to cart around. For more, head over to our guide on the Nintendo Switch Lite price
