A great Happy New Year to all our readers in the UK where 2022 has just begun! For anyone hoping to start the year with a new console, here’s a quick summary of the best Nintendo Switch options we’ve seen so far as sales go up in January.

There are not many savings to pick up in the US at the moment, which is not surprising considering how low the inventory has been, but there is a great Switch package in the Nintendo Store that gives you the original Switch with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and 3 months Nintendo Switch Online for only $ 299 – the price of the console itself.

Meanwhile, we’ve seen better storage on the Nintendo Switch Lite in the US than we’ve seen in a long time. Adorama has Nintendo Switch Lite in blue or turquoise – with Animal Crossing New Horizons and a 128 GB memory card for $ 293.97

In the UK, many of the best packing options are also direct from Nintendo. You can get Switch with Ring Fit Adventure for £ 309, or for £ 359, you can add an extra game, with more options available. Elsewhere, you can get the shiny new Switch OLED with a game from £ 319.19 at Game.

We update this blog all New Year’s Day, so be sure to return later to see what’s new. In the meantime, you might as well start choosing among the best Nintendo Switch accessories.

Change Animal Crossing version

Now the special edition of Nintendo Switches is not for everyone. Some of them are understated enough to appeal beyond hardcore fans of specific games – the metallic gray Dialga & Palkia Switch Lite, for example, looks pretty sleek. But the same cannot be said of this special edition Animal Crossing Switch. While “colorful” is one of the adjectives most commonly used to describe Nintendo’s best-selling console, this edition is probably a little too playful for most gamers’ tastes. However, if you’re a big fan of Animal Crossing … it’s the same price as the standard version of the original Switch, and it’s one of the most available options in the US right now. It’s £ 299 at Amazon and Nintendo and Best Buy.

Not eager? Amazon also has stock for Switch with the more sober gray Joy-Cons.

There is no sign of the Animal Crossing edition in the UK, but if you want a special edition Switch that stands out from the rest, the Nintendo store has the gray / black Monster Hunter Rise edition with detailed golden illustrations on the dock for £ 339.99.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild

For more deals on games, if you already have a Switch – or if you just ordered one, it’s worth taking a look at GameStop right now. It’s $ 10 off Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – now $ 49.99, $ 10 off Super Smash Bros. – now $ 44.99, $ 23 off Zelda: Breath of the Wild – now $ 36.99, and $ 24 off Super Mario Bros. U. Deluxe – now $ 35.99. It also has buy two, get one free on a number of pre-owned games.

In the UK, Game also has a lot of discounts, though not on the biggest titles. Its offer includes £ 10 off Lego Worlds – now £ 24.99 and £ 7 off Who Wants to Be a Millionaire – now $ 17.99.

With less than four hours to 2022 in the UK, what about this for the ultimate package for the new year? Solve all the new year, new body solutions with a nice Nintendo Switch package. You get the original Switch console with Ring Fit Adventure and Just Dance 2022 for £ 343.99, a saving of £ 75.99 (although you will actually find Just Dance 2022 reduced at several retailers as we are only a few hours away from itself 2022).

There are no such bundles to be found in the US, but if you already have the Switch and want to blow up some dance moves, you can grab Just Dance 2022 for half price – now $ 24.99 at Target and start the new year by reliving the best numbers from 2021.

Nintendo Switch Lite bundle

Perhaps the biggest Switch news in the US as we approach New Year is that retailers have Switch Lite in stock! The smaller, standalone version of the Switch has been almost impossible to get online lately without paying a high price, but you currently have more options, especially at Adorama, which offers more bundles. You can get Nintendo Switch Lite in blue or turquoise – With Animal Crossing New Horizons and a 128 GB memory card for $ 293.97. The package is also available with Metroid Dread for the same price. Adorama also has the metallic gray Switch Lite Dialga & Palkia Edition with Pokemon Diamond and a 128GB card for £ 359.99.

If you want the console alone, Amazon has it in coral for the standard £ 199.99, just like Best Buy, while GameStop has the Dialga & Palkia edition.

For a long time, stock of Switch Lite was much easier to grab in the UK, but not today. None of the UK’s largest retailers currently have stock available online, while Amazon only has options with an increase of around £ 30 to £ 227.

Nintendo Switch OLED Package Agreement

We mentioned earlier that we did not expect to find any discounts on the latest Switch, the OLED version with its improved display, stronger support legs and twice as much storage capacity. There are certainly not many offers to get, but in the UK Game has some discounts on bundles. There are several available, all of which offer the Nintendo Switch OLED + a game for £ 319.19, which means you basically get the game for under £ 10. Choose from OLED with Rayman Legends, Lego DC Supervillains, Mario and Rabbids Kingdom or Lego The Incredibles.

Not so lucky in the US, where your best chance of getting the OLED Switch at the moment is with GameStop at the standard price of $ 349.99 or for $ 329.99 pre-owned.

The January sale is usually a good time to find discounts on Nintendo Switch games, and this year is no exception. One of the best places to find great deals is Nintendo’s own e-store, both in the US and the UK.

For example, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle in the US has dropped from $ 59.99 to just $ 11.99; The Blasphemous Switch has been reduced from $ 24.99 to $ 6.24, and the price of the Secret Neighbor has dropped from $ 19.99 to $ 4.99.

In the UK, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Complete Edition has meanwhile dropped from £ 49.99 to £ 24.99, Mario Golf: Super Rush has been reduced from £ 49.99 to £ 39.99, and Tony Hawks Pro Skater 1 + 2 has been reduced from £ 39.99 to £ 21.99.

Nintendo Switch Ring Fit Adventure

The New Year is traditionally a time to turn a new leaf and get fit and healthy. And here are two amazing bundles in the UK to help you do just that. Amazon has a bundle of Nintendo Switch (Neon Red / Neon Blue) + Just Dance 2022 for just £ 263.99, saving £ 65.99 on the price when purchased separately. Alternatively, you can get the Nintendo Switch Neon Red / Neon Blue + Ring Fit Adventure for £ 309, a saving of £ 60.99 on what would normally cost you £ 369.99 in total.

In the US, stocks of the latest Switch console, the Nintendo Switch OLED, have been rarer than chicken teeth lately. And things are not getting any better: A few days ago, Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa stated that a lack of components means that OLED may be missing in 2022.

So we are not at all surprised that prices have risen above the base price of $ 349.99 where stock is available (note that they are “temporarily sold out” on Nintendo’s official site). For example, the lowest price on Amazon is currently $ 399.99, and that is for a used model; for new, you look at £ 439 and up!

Fortunately, we’ve found a better price than that: GameStop is currently selling shares at the standard price of $ 349.99. Plus, if you’re happy with a used console, at the time of writing you can even get one for $ 329.99, saving you $ 20.

In the UK, meanwhile, there are no big discounts either. But there is at least stock and you do not have to pay over the odds, with the Very matching standard price of £ 309.99 and Amazon discounting it by as much as 99p, to £ 309.

If you are in the US and already have a Nintendo Switch, here is a great package from that can save you a lot of money.

First, you get a SanDisk 128GB MicroSDXC card worth $ 35, which is optimized for the Switch and allows you to store extra games and data on your device.

Second, you also get a 12-month $ 20 Nintendo Switch Online membership. This online subscription service includes cool features such as online multiplayer, cloud backup of your game data, the ability to voice chat with other players, access to a library of 100+ Super NES and NES games, as well as other promotions and offers.

In total, these two things would add up to $ 55, but the Amazon bundle costs only $ 40.98, saving you $ 14.02, or 25 percent of the total. That kind of offer does not usually last long, so do not hesitate if you are interested.

If a Switch is at the top of your New Year’s sales list in the UK, you’re in luck. Right now, Very has an excellent bottom deal that combines a Nintendo Switch console with three super-popular games – Animal Crossing New Horizon, Minecraft and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – all for £ 359.99.

You save around £ 20 by getting them as a bundle, which does not sound like much, but it saved the hassle of finding and ordering them individually, plus also eliminates any extra postage costs. Hurry though, this package sells fast!

Welcome to our Nintendo Switch January live blog. As the new year draws to a close, retailers across the globe are offering more deals on Nintendo’s popular console. After Christmas, we saw some really decent trades, but especially in the US, stocks were still sparse.

Fortunately, there is a lot more to talk about now, but you need to be careful that you do not pay over odds. Therefore, we will publish all the best deals here as they arrive, so if it is the Switch you are looking for, you are sure to get good value for money. We are also looking for accessories and games, so if you already have a console, you will still find some interesting deals.

Don’t forget, the standard retail price for the Nintendo Switch is $ 299 / £ 259, and for the Nintendo Switch Lite $ 220 / £ 199- £ 239. Anything lower than that and you save some money, something higher and the price has been inflated due to high demand.
