It's Mario Day, and that means Mario Day sales. Yes, it's a thing - March 10, or 'Mar10', looks a bit like 'Mario'. Geddit? Anyway. To celebrate the moustachioed plumber, loads of his games on Nintendo Switch have seen discounts at a bunch of retailers, some with a whole $20 knocked off the price. Accessory deals and a Switch console offer have been thrown in as well for those who haven't yet taken the plunge (this bundle with a Mario-themed PowerA controller is just $299, for instance).

To kick off the Mario Day sale, some recent Mario games have been reduced by $20 apiece: Super Mario Maker 2 has gone down to $39.99 at Walmart; and Super Mario Party has seen a price drop of $20 there as well. Although the bigger Mario games haven't seen such a significant reduction, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has fallen by $15 to a more affordable $44.99 at Best Buy. Super Mario Odyssey has also tumbled to $44.99 at Best Buy, while New Super Mario Bros. U is $15 less. Suffice to say, there's a good amount of money to be saved here.

It's worth noting that the event runs until March 14, 2020, so there are a few days left to enjoy a good deal on everything Mario-related from Switch and 3DS games to a whole host of other accessories.
