This is shaping up to be a great week for budget-conscious Nintendo fans. As luck would have it, Prime Day (June 21 and 22) is rolling in hot off the heels of the latest Nintendo Direct Showcase.
There are plenty of new releases to be excited about, but we probably won’t see many deals on the new Danganronpa Collection or the upcoming Switch port of Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 + 2 for a while – but we’ll certainly let you know when it happens. The timing couldn’t be better — Prime Day 2021 is a stellar time to stock up on older titles, new controllers, accessories, and discounted Switch consoles.
Here are the best Prime Day Switch deals we’ve seen so far:
Prime Day Switch Console DealsAs anyone who tried buying a Nintendo Switch in 2020 can verify, the availability of new Switch consoles has been hampered by semiconductor chip shortages and an uptick in interest during the pandemic. There have been times where you’re lucky to find a Switch, let alone at a discount. If you find a good Switch console deal during Prime Day, go for it — it might be a while before you get another chance.

Prime Day Switch Controller DealsUnless you are a lifestyle solo gamer with a gentle yet precise grip, it’s never a bad idea to have extra Joy-Cons or Pro Controllers on deck. As clever and versatile as they are, Nintendo’s Joy-Cons still tend to drift and lose their alignment over time. Plus, you want to be prepared if your friends drop in to play some Smash or Mario Kart!

Prime Day Switch Game DealsNintendo cares a lot about the value of its intellectual property, which is allegedly why Switch game deals are relatively rare. Plenty of the gaming giant’s best titles are well worth their full price, but why pay it if you don’t have to? From flagship classics like Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to indie entries such as Untitled Goose Game, you can save up to 50% (or more!) on Nintendo Switch games during Prime Day 2021.

Prime Day Switch Accessory DealsThe Nintendo Switch is named after its versatile design, which allows the console to switch from a docked TV console to a portable handheld device. Each console comes with a docking station, Joy-Cons and a power source, but you’re on your own if you want to decorate your Switch or carry it around safely. Luckily, Amazon is home to a vibrant selection of third-party Switch accessories and peripherals, many of which are featured during its Prime Day sale.
Note: Some third-party tools and accessories have not been approved for official use by Nintendo. You don’t need to worry about potential issues from a third-party screen protector or a carrying case, but make sure to research the quality and safety of docking stations and NFC accessories before making a purchase.
