Update: We've been through this article and updated the lists within, ready for Black Friday 2018. We're hoping for steeper deals than usual thanks to talk of a new version of the Nintendo Switch on the near horizon. So far the best deal has definitely been a Nintendo Switch bundled with Pokemon:Let's Go and the latest Just Dance for £299, and some fast-dropping discounts on popular games.
Nintendo's latest entry into the console fight (a beauteous neon system bolstered by SD cards) and its rapidly expanding library of games has made quite the impact. Last Black Friday saw tons of Nintendo Switches shifted in frantic lightning sales. They sold out within minutes and deal-hunters across the land were left with more pedestrian offerings - true to Nintendo style.
However, the game giant's flagship console is no longer brand new, coming up to nearly two years old in late 2018. In addition, a new iteration of the Nintendo Switch could arrive as soon as the latter half of 2019 according to recent reports. As such, we're expecting bigger and bolder discounts than ever before on Nintendo Switch consoles and games this upcoming Black Friday. For the uninitiated, Black Friday 2018 lands on the 23rd November this year, although the festive discounts are dropping weeks before. It seems to become vaster each time round, as retailers push out deals ever earlier.
Like we do each and every Black Friday, we'll keep this page updated with all the latest and best deals, bundles, discounts and offers on Nintendo Switch consoles, along with keeping a keen eye on all the games, accessories, SD cards and fancy hats to be had this season. For now, onto the deals!
