No one tells Doug Bowser, but GameStop actually has Nintendo games for sale for under $ 40. Shocking, I know!

With the darkest ritual of American capitalism just around the corner, GameStop has released their Black Friday offer and they are really good. There are discounted games across all platforms, but the store’s Switch selection is the real standout by boasting some of the lowest prices I’ve ever seen for first-rate Nintendo games.

Nintendo is notoriously stingy when it comes to sales and price drops, Pokémon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon is still $ 40 each for example – which they are likely to remain until the end of time. Even within their own digital marketplace, significant discounts are rare. Nintendo has also not really put pressure on putting their games up for sale. The company’s games and designos are unique enough that it just is not viable for Microsoft or Sony to compete, and due to the market’s blind, invisible and decrepit hand, prices remain stagnant.

If for some reason you have not yet played The wild spirit in the nearly five years since its first release, you can pick it up for the surprisingly low $ 27 along with Mario’s latest 2D adventure The Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, originally released on WiiU, Mario Plus Rabbids Kingdom Battle, which is only $ 13, and half a dozen other games included Xenoblade Chronicles which right now is in my car or Paper Mario: The Origami King which I have heard is excellent.

For those of you who despise physical editions, you will be happy to know that the digital versions of all these games are also for sale at the same price, as long as you give the money to GameStop and not Doug Bowser. Mr. However, Bowser will do well, I promise.

UPDATED: 22/11/2021, 17:50 ET: Amazon has participated in the fun and now also offers Switch games for one surprisingly affordable $ 27.
