Boxing Day is proving to be a great time to catch up on some excellent Nintendo Switch deals. The lovely folks over at Currys have discounted some top Switch games to just £36.99. That includes the very recently released Luigi’s Mansion 3, the also very recently released Zelda: Link’s Awakening and the timelessly glorious Super Mario Odyssey. Switch price drops are like gold dust; once they’re gone, they’re gone – and they’re unlikely to get any lower than this for quite some time, if ever. It’s time to start filling up your shopping cart.
Out of all the Boxing Day sales so far in the UK, this is the best – and hardest to choose from. Where do you go first? Link’s Awakening is a wonderfully inventive reimagining of a bonafide Game Boy classic. If you missed out on the title a quarter of a century ago, there’s no better time to jump right in. It’s never been cheaper than £36.99 at Currys, and you even get 6 months' free Spotify Premium. That's music to our ears.
The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening (Nintendo Switch) | £36.99 at Currys
Relive Link's most underappreciated adventure with this 2019 re-imagining of a Game Boy classic
Luigi’s Mansion 3 is next. In our review, we said “the level designs are impressively creative and a joy to explore.” The fact you get to explore them with the ever-terrified Luigi is the cherry on top of a cake filled with heebie-jeebies. Again, £36.99. By comparison, it’s currently £44 on Amazon. A small slice of savings go a long way with Cyber Monday on the horizon.

Who you gonna call? Goo-igi! Back once more, Mario's scaredy-cat brother is ready to bust some ghosts in this absurdly entertaining threequel.
Ok, so, yeah. Pokemon Sword and Shield. Came out a MONTH ago, right? It’s never going to get a Boxing Day discount. That’s what I thought, anyway. I’m very happy for Currys to prove me wrong: £39.99.
