Nintendo’s slate of Black Friday deals were announced on Monday, and include a Switch bundle and rare discounts on popular games starting Nov. 21. You’ll find them online at retailers like Amazon and Best Buy, and at local brick-and-mortar stores. The press release made no mention of availability issues, but you can expect consoles in particular to be hard to find this holiday as they have in years past.

The Nintendo Switch bundle available this holiday will include the standard console (not the new OLED version) with one red and one blue Joy-Con. It includes a digital download code for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and a three-month individual membership for Nintendo Switch Online. Suggested retail price is $299.99.

While Nintendo has offered similar bundles in the past, the big announcement here is a $20 discount on select games. That includes The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, Splatoon 2, Super Mario Maker 2, Paper Mario: The Origami King, Kirby Star Allies, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Astral Chain, and Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition — all for $39.99 each. Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit will also be discounted to $59.99 (a $40 discount) and Ring Fit Adventure will drop to $54.99 ($25 off).

Unsurprisingly, the new version of the Switch — which sports a larger, brighter, and more detailed screen — will not be discounted.
