Nintendo Switch is kind of a big deal. We’ve had some great bundles in the past, like the Splatoon 2 bundle and the Mario Odyssey bundle with the red Joy-cons. Those are no longer being offered by Nintendo, but you can still pick them up from third-party sellers for a bit of a premium.
If you want your Nintendo Switch to stand out from the crowd, be it an exclusive dock and Joy-con color scheme, or just a bundle with extra goodies, Nintendo has been steadily dropping new bundles since its last Direct. Here are the upcoming Nintendo Switch bundles, some of which you can preorder and some which are available right now.
Nintendo Switch Mario Tennis Aces/1-2 Switch Bundle
This is the best value going for a new Nintendo Switch, because it comes with 2 games packed right in. Mario Tennis Aces is super fun, and a great game to play solo or with someone else. 1-2 Switch is also a fun party game, and getting them both in one bundle for $359 seems like stealing, if you have a really weird definition of stealing.
Nintendo Switch Fortnite Bundle
Nintendo only just announced the existence of this Fortnite Double Helix Switch bundle. It doesn’t have any specially-colored Joy-cons or a cool skin on the Switch dock, which is a bit of a bummer. But it does have some nice Fortnite extras included in the box, like 1,000 V-bucks and the Double Helix Set. It’s out right now, and even if you aren’t a Fortnite fan, this is a great choice if you’re thinking of giving a Switch as a gift for the upcoming holiday season.
Nintendo Switch Pikachu Pokemon: Let’s Go! Bundle
Oh, sure, you could buy a regular Switch, a copy of the game, and the Pokeball Plus for the same price as this bundle, but you’d miss out on the cutest Switch Dock known to modern science.
Nintendo Switch Eevee Pokemon: Let’s Go! Bundle
If you prefer Eevee over Pikachu, I salute you, and I also recommend this bundle. It’s the same as the other one, but you get Let’s Go! Eevee instead.
Nintendo Switch Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Bundle
This bundle is one of the best, and it’s also getting harder to find, popping up in and out of stock at all the major retailers. Your best bet is to try and grab one through Best Buy or GameStop, but Walmart carries them, too. They just tend to run out more quickly.
Of course, you get the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as part of the deal, but you also get two special edition Joy-cons and the Switch dock featuring the characters from the original N64 Smash roster. We’ve come so far in such a short amount of time.
Nintendo Switch Diablo III Eternal Collection Bundle
The Diablo III Eternal Collection Nintendo Switch bundle is definitely one of the cooler Nintendo Switch bundles out there. Not only does it include the upcoming game, it also has an excellent branded Switch dock and a super cool Diablo III-themed Switch carrying case. You can only get this at GameStop, as it’s a retail-exclusive bundle.
Nintendo Switch 64GB microSD and $20 eShop Bundles
Amazon’s bundle is a pretty good deal if you’re looking to start off on the right foot with a Nintendo Switch. It has a Nintendo Switch branded SD Card, as well as $20 to spend in the eShop. You can get the bundle in either Neon or Grey, your choice, for $343.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Special Edition
Nintendo isn’t just bundling its consoles, it’s also bundling its biggest games. This amazing Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Special Edition includes the game in an awesome steelbook, as well as the special edition branded Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Pro Controller. To say this is a nice package is an understatement.
Note: This version sells out fast, but has been getting sporadic restocks. If you don’t see it at your favorite retailer, you can either try another one, or wait and hope for the best.
Pokemon: Let’s Go! Pikachu Bundle
Another great software bundle, the Let’s Go! Pikachu bundle comes with the awesome Pokeball controller, so you can go around catching Pokemon at will and then use it to control the game on your Switch.
Pokemon: Let’s Go! Eevee Bundle
Take everything nice I just said about the Pikachu bundle and swap out Eevee instead. My personal preference is for Eevee, because I think Eevee is cuter and Umbreon is one of the coolest Pokemon evolutions, by far.
