Amazon USA is hosting a big sale on video games for all platforms right now, including the most popular first-party Nintendo Switch titles, God of War and more. If you were looking for the perfect opportunity to grab Captain Toad or Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, this is your chance.
Unlike Sony’s and Microsoft’s consoles that have a huge variety of exclusive titles to choose from, Nintendo Switch has a handful of first-party releases that you should definitely try. All those games are now discounted by 25% at Amazon USA for a limited amount of time, so if you’re missing any, go ahead and check them out.
Here’s what you can get for cheap right now:
- Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – $44.99
- Super Mario Odyssey – $44.99
- The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – $44.99
- Mario Tennis Aces – $44.99
- Splatoon 2 – $52.99
Games like Captain Toad Treasure Tracker and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Breeze are also discounted. Fire Emblem Warriors is now just $35.99, that’s one sweet deal right there.
Unfortunately, first-party Nintendo Switch titles like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Super Mario Party that are set for release in the future are not discounted but it would be surprising if they were.
Seeing all those first-party Nintendo Switch titles discounted comes as a surprise since we seldom see them on sale altogether. The last time was at the post E3 2018 sales available on Nintendo Store, with the same discount.
If you are looking for something to grab outside of Nintendo Switch, God of War for PlayStation 4 is also for sale for $44.99 and Vampyr for $39.99.
A recent survey revealed that about 70% of consumers who own either a PS4 or an Xbox One, also own Switch. So it seems to fashion a conclusion that perhaps US audience treats Switch as a secondary console. We can say that those who own a PS4 or an Xbox One, purchased Switch as a side option. This is what Nintendo wanted for the console, for it to be owned by everyone even if it’s not meant for everyday gaming.
