Nintendo

If there are any gaps in your Switch library, now is the time to fill them. Nintendo is notoriously stingy when it comes to discounts, which is why we were surprised (and excited) to see that there’s another 25 percent off sale on first-party Switch titles, including Super Mario Odyssey, Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Tennis Aces and more. Originally offered by Walmart, Amazon quickly matched prices, because that’s what Amazon does.

Tabletop gamers can save this week as well. The newest D&D adventure, Waterdeep: Dragon Heist, is discounted by 40 percent at Amazon. Polygon’s Charlie Hall called it “one of the most cleverly designed adventures in the entire D&D catalogue.”

Finally, Fanatical is running a PC game bundle giveaway. Ten winners will get to pick between three game bundles: Monster Hunter World, Cuphead and Overcooked! 2; Yakuza 0, Shenmue 1 & 2 and Vampyr; or Two Point Hospital, Frostpunk and BattleTech. Entry is now open.

Sometimes the weekend is just too short: Join us on Twitter for all the latest deals throughout the week.

Miscellaneous

Commerce team picks

  • Sony announced the PlayStation Classic this week, a mini retro console modeled after the original PlayStation. Pre-orders have only been up for a few days, but Amazon, Best Buy and Walmart have already sold out. We expect that more listings will go up before the Dec. 3 release, but if you want to guarantee that you’ll be able to get the PlayStation Classic, GameStop and Target are your best bets.
  • A Fortnite Switch bundle was also announced this week, which will include a standard Switch console, 1,000 V-bucks and an exclusive “Double Helix” pack of skins and items. The Fortnite Double Helix Switch bundle retails for $299.99 (the MSRP of a non-bundled Switch), which makes sense for a free-to-play game. Pre-orders are available at Best Buy and GameStop.
  • Nintendo Switch Online has officially launched, along with a library of NES games available exclusively to members. Nintendo is selling NES-style controllers exclusively to members, but they only work with the NES games included in the collection. For non-Switch Online members who want some old school controllers (or members who want to use them on other games), 8BitDo makes excellent retro-style controllers that connect to any device with bluetooth functionality.
