Nintendo Switch Lite just got its biggest discount since Black Friday

Much lighter on the wallet.

The Nintendo Switch Lite has been given its first major discount since Black Friday, bringing it down to the same low price we saw during the end-of-year sale bonanza.

Currys PC World is currently boasting the £169 price point on each of the console's three main colours - down from the usual £199. Amazon appears to have already fallen out of stock (how?). It was only Asda that dropped the price that low in stores last November.

There doesn't appear to be any particular event surrounding this sudden price drop, but we're more than willing to take advantage of the sale all the same!

The Switch Lite isn't a bad way to go if you think you'll be playing more on the go as it cannot be docked to a TV like the original Switch. The Joy-Con controllers are also directly attached to the device so it makes it a more robust portable option - especially good if you have children that might want to play with it.

If you do decide to grab one of these Switch Lite deals then you'll probably want some games and accessories to go with it too, right? Here are a few of the best out there right now:

Or, you could also hold off for another day as the Blockbuster Nintendo Switch eShop sale is scheduled to begin on Thursday. In it, both Super Mario Maker 2 and Fire Emblem: Three Houses will be 33 per cent off.

For even more Switch offers you can always give us a look over at Jelly Deals. You'll find our picks for the best Nintendo Switch SD card, the best Nintendo Switch Lite accessories and where you can get Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX for the best price.
