If you have even fleeting experience with buying Nintendo games, you'll know that first-party titles like Super Mario Odyssey, Metroid Dread, and Mario Kart 8 rarely go on sale—regardless of how long they've been on the market. If you've been holding out on some brilliant Nintendo Switch classics, now's a good time to bite: Amazon Australia is offering AU$20 off most Nintendo Switch first-party games.

These discounts tend to only happen during big sales events, like Amazon Prime Day or Black Friday, so it's a nice surprise to see these at such reduced prices. Perhaps the best deal among them is Metroid Dread: it's less than six months old, so a AU$20 discount on its usual AU$79.95 RRP is very welcome indeed.

Notable for not being discounted is Animal Crossing: New Horizons (probably due to that huge recent title update), as well as the recent Pokémon Legends Arceus. Still, peruse the list below and see what takes your fancy.
