Mario Party has always been a staple franchise for Nintendo, notorious for its ability to destroy even the closest friendships.

Seeing a Nintendo Switch drop below $299 (opens in new tab) is a Black Friday deal worth its mettle. You’re getting the best portable console with a $30 price cut, and as you can tell from the number of brilliant games already on this live blog (also with stellar price cuts), there is plenty to play on this.

The Nintendo Switch with Neon Red/Neon Blue Joy-Cons in this deal had dropped to $269, which is an incredible offer. The catch? It’s a refurbished Switch that’s Geek Squad Certified — meaning it’s in great condition. What’s more, reviews for this model are at 4.5 out of 5, with customers stating that its condition is “like new.” That’s a good sign you’re getting a proper Switch console at a reduced price!

Kirby’s first standalone adventure into the realm of 3D now has a decent discount on Amazon. You can get Kirby and the Forgotten Land for $45 (opens in new tab).

Kirby and the Forgotten Land was met with critical acclaim at its launch, many citing it as the best Kirby game ever made. In the game you explore an almost post-apocalyptic world where much of it has been abandoned, with the only remnants being the enemy creatures you encounter along your journey. 

But this is a beautiful world regardless, with a soft palette and gorgeous colors. If you wanna travel throughout a lonely world as the iconic pink blob themselves, this might be worth the money!

Splatoon 3 is beloved for its casual and goofy competitive action, so if you need something to consume your late nights on Nintendo Switch, look no further. Splatoon 3 is $45 (opens in new tab) now, reducing its price by a whole $15.

If you didn’t much enjoy the previous Splatoon games, we don’t expect your mind to change with Splatoon 3. It’s a very similar game, and many of the changes are additional rather than offering a complete overhaul.

The Diofield Chronicle is $21 off!

The Diofield Chronicle, a critically acclaimed strategic RPG from Square Enix, is now $21 off. If you’re a fan of real-time tactical combat and a sprawling epic storylines, you might not want to pass up The Diofield Chronicle for $39 (opens in new tab).

Bayonetta 3 is $15 off for Black Friday!

Do I need to say more? If you’re somehow unaware of the iconic queen of stylish action, Bayonetta is a legend in the hack-n-slash fandom. Alongside Dante from Devil May Cry, the two cause the entire gaming world to tremble whenever they’re featured in a new game.

If you’re in need of something new to play on Switch and have been interested in the Bayonetta series before, this might be a great place to start. And if you’ve already played Bayonetta before, I doubt I need to convince you to pick this up.

It Takes Two only arrived on Switch earlier this month, but you can already save $11 off (ok, $10.99) the hit co-op game. When we reviewed It Takes Two for PC last year we awarded it 4 out of 5 stars and an Editor’s Choice award and later named it the best co-op game of 2021.

I’ve played through it multiple times with my son (he’s 9) and it’s a fantastically accessible game even for younger players. As we noted in our write-up for co-op game of the year the game “jumps between puzzler, platformer, racer, third-person shooter, stealth game, hack-and-slash, isometric dungeon crawler, fighter, and flight simulator. Players will most frequently solve puzzles and hop across platforms, but the overall experience is bolstered by unique mini-games and fresh mechanics.”

It’s truly a unique gaming experience and particularly if you are looking for co-op games I can’t imagine anything I would recommend more highly on the Switch, so pick it up for the bargain price of $29 at GameStop (opens in new tab) before the deal is gone.
