If you’re in the market for a Nintendo Switch, Best Buy is bringing back its popular bundle. Select first-party Nintendo games are half off with the purchase of a new console, including Switch essentials like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey.

Bona fide discounts on Nintendo Switch consoles are few and far between, especially since eBay seems to have scrapped its sitewide coupons. Bundles are typically the only way to save any cash when buying a Switch. Best Buy has offered this bundle before, though this time around there are more games to choose from.

All of the available games, Super Mario Party, Mario Tennis Aces, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Kirby Star Allies, Super Mario Odyssey, Splatoon 2, Arms, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, have an MSRP of $59.99. Best Buy’s discount brings one of them down to $29.99 when added to a Switch purchase. Though only one game will be discounted, you can choose which one.

In addition to the Switch bundle, Best Buy is offering up to half off Nintendo Labo kits (excluding the new VR kit). The Variety Kit, Vehicle Kit, and Robot Kit are all discounted to $39.99, though we’d recommend sticking to those first two sets. Comparatively, the Robot Kit is a bit disappointing.

While the Switch bundle is currently exclusive to Best Buy, the Labo discount is matched in GameStop’s spring sale.
