The Nintendo Switch deals have proved pleasingly long-lasting for Black Friday 2018, and most of the decent offers have endured. A deal with Nintendo Switch Neon with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Zelda Breath of the Wild for £299.00 has been one of the best thus far, but unfortunately sold out earlier today.

You can pick your own game with Smyths Toys - Nintendo Switch console (Neon) with one game from Super Mario Party, Super Mario Odyssey, Super Mario Tennis Aces, Super Mario Kart 8, Splatoon 2 for £289.99.

We'll be spying for for the best Nintendo Switch bundles, especially any offers involving iconic Nintendo titles such as Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, although last year these popular games did not reduce much in price. A few reductions have been witnessed at Ebay, but these offers sell out fast and can be hard to verify. Unfortunately, as a company Nintendo tends not to discount its own games or machines very much.

So far, the best deals we've seen have sold out quickly! Although it's worth keeping an eye on respective pages to see if the item gets back in stock. The few substanial deals we've seen on more iconic series like Zelda, Diablo and Mario have been fleeting, and ludicrously popular. However, with more retailers getting involved this year and plenty of price matching antics between the bigger players, there's plenty of means to nab Nintendo discounts then ever before.

What and when is Cyber Monday?

Created by marketers and frequented by consumers world-wide these days, the commerce "holiday" Cyber Monday has surprisingly, been around for over a decade. It traditionally falls on the Monday after Thanksgiving, which varies year by year. Following the Black Friday frenzy in-stores, Cyber Monday is generally just based online, with more of an emphasis on technology deals as opposed to massive savings on towels, mankinis and toasters. This year's Black Friday deals saw some steeper then usual discounts on the wonderfully lurid Nintendo Switch, although the particularly awesome deals sold out rapidly.

Luckilly, as Cyber Monday is a little less widespread then its dark predecessor, there may be some new and suitably shiny Nintendo Switch deals to be had from lesser known shops. This is because Cyber Monday presents a chance for smaller technology retailers to get involved without being drowned out by the big players that get on-board with Black Friday. We're collecting the finest Cyber Monday deals on Nintendo Switch consoles, games and accessories in this hub, updated daily.

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.

Although there were several discounts on Nintendo games and goodies such as amiibos, none were comparable to the insane lightning deals. 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.
