Nintendo Switch games, especially digital games, are far more resistant to price cuts than PlayStation and Xbox titles. That said, not even the Big N can resist the allure of Black Friday. Several different retailers (including Amazon, Best Buy, Target, and Humble) are running steep discounts on Nintendo Switch games–all of which are offered as digital downloads, meaning you can start gaming just minutes after placing your purchase. The offers are part of Nintendo’s official Cyber Deals sale on the Switch eShop. If you prefer physical games, we have a big list focused on those, too.
Two of the best price cuts are for Dragon Ball FighterZ and Doom Eternal, both of which are seeing $50 discounts. Doom Eternal is an easy recommendation for anyone seeking an FPS on Switch, as it’s without a doubt one of the best on the platform. FighterZ, meanwhile, is a frantic fighting game that’s perfect for fans of the anime or manga.
A better way to cash in on this event is by snagging Switch exclusives, which hardly ever see worthwhile digital deals. Bayonetta 3, Fire Emblem: Engage, and Xenoblade Chronicles 2–which isn’t in print these days–are all on sale for just $42, so it’s a great time to pick up a few exclusives. You’ll also find Monster Hunter Rise + Sunbreak DLC for $30 (down from $60), which offers hundreds of hours of content and is the perfect, grindy game to get you through the winter.
Alternatively, if the impending Grand Theft Auto 6 trailer has you excited, you can scoop up the Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy Definitive Edition for $30 (down from $60). And don’t miss out on one of the best indie games in recent memory, with Tunic listed for $21 (down from $30). Taking cues from Dark Souls and old-school Zelda, it’s more than worth picking up at this low price.
Plenty of other games are on sale, and you’ll find the best Black Friday Nintendo Switch digital game deals below. Remember–these are all offered as digital codes, and if one retailer sells out, be sure to shop at the others.
