While it might not seem the case, the Nintendo Switch is still one of the most popular consoles out there, and is one of our favorite consoles. It also has some of the best games out there, such as The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and Pokemon Sword & Shield. It’s great for gaming on the go, and whether you want to pick up the console, game or some accessories, there are many solid Black Friday deals to take advantage of.
Amazon, Best Buy and Walmart have all kicked off their Black Friday sales a little early this year and are offering some big savings on select Switch games, as well as accessories like headsets and controllers.

Is there a new Switch console on the way?
As of now, no, Nintendo has not confirmed that we’ll be seeing a new Switch 2 on shelves anytime soon. However, there are rumors that a new console could be released as soon as late 2024. And considering that it’s been over 6 years since the original Switch was first released, this nifty handheld is certainly due for an update.

Is Nintendo offering any direct discounts for Black Friday?
You won’t find any discounts on Switch consoles or accessories at Nintendo’s online store, but it has announced that it will be rolling out some new bundle deals at select partner retailers throughout November. Plus, you can find big savings on hundreds of digital games at Nintendo’s eShop.
