A new Nintendo Switch bundle is here, but only for a few days. Newegg is throwing in in two free Switch games, NBA 2K19 and Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido, with the purchase of a new console for the next 48 hours only.

Nintendo’s mega-hit console rarely sees deals outside of bundles, since that’s one of the few ways retailers can get away with offering unofficial discounts. Nintendo has released some official bundles of their own, but Walmart and Best Buy will often throw in freebies or offer discounts on games when buying a new Switch.

Now Newegg is getting in on the action with a new bundle of its own. The online electronics retailer is offering a Nintendo Switch, plus 2K Sports’ basketball game, NBA 2K19, and Nintendo’s whimsical sushi matching game, Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido, for $299.99. You’ll get the two games for free, saving around $49.99.

The bundle will be available at Newegg through Tuesday, May 21, and only applies to the console with grey Joy-Cons.

It’s also worth pointing out to new Switch owners that Twitch Prime members can still get a free yearlong subscription to Nintendo Switch Online. Now is a good time to sign up because, in addition to the online service and access to a library of NES games, Nintendo is offering Switch Online members a pair of eShop vouchers for $99.99, which will save $19.99 off two full-priced Switch games.
