Black Friday 2018 - Nintendo Deals

Note: As retailers release ads, the newest retailer deals information will be added to the bottom of this page.  If we learn of new deals with a retailer that has already been listed, the deal will be added under the associated retailer with (New) next to the listing indicating it is an addition.

The holidays are just around the corner. All the tricks, treats, and scares from the Halloween season are behind us, and now we look forward to Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the New Year. Leave it to big online and physical retail chains to aid our focus on the near future by dangling tantalizing holiday deals over our heads. Sure it’s only the first of November, but that hasn’t stopped Black Friday deals from beginning to circulate.

With that being said, we here at Nintendo Enthusiast want to provide you with a one-stop glance at all of the Nintendo gaming and accessories deals that we can possibly collect for Black Friday 2018. Over the course of the next couple weeks, we’ll continue to update this very page as more deals and articles are posted. So, if you’re so inclined, bookmark this page so that you can check back for updates. Also, we’ll be sure to bump this article on the homepage with each addition.

Whether you’re buying for yourself or for others, you want to make sure your hard-earned dollars go the distance. So, let’s gets started with the first Black Friday ad of the season: Target.


A Nintendo Switch/Mario Kart 8 Deluxe bundle and Starlink: Battle for Atlas stands out among the pack of deals. Buying a Nintendo Switch effectively gets you Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for free. And, Starlink just barely launched and will currently cost you $74.99 for the game complete with Fox Mcloud’s Arwing. The new toys-to-life game from Ubisoft can be snagged as a doorbuster deal at $39.99 ($35 in savings)!

• Nintendo Switch and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Bundle $299.99 ($60 savings on MK8D)
• Starlink: Battle for Atlas (Doorbuster) $39.99 ($35 savings)
• Nintendo 2DS bundled with Super Mario Maker $79.99 (free game pre-installed)

• Just Dance 2019 $25
• Nickelodeon Kart Racers $25
• Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle $25
• Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy $25
• Farming Simulator $15

The ad noted that more titles will be available in store in the $15, $25, and $35 price categories. So, be aware that more may be available.


Kohl’s offers the SNES classic edition and a Nintendo Switch bundle.  The Switch bundle doesn’t come with any games but offers a couple of accessories.

• Super NES Classic Edition $79.99 (Get $15 Kohl’s Cash)
• Nintendo Switch bundle with Turtle Beach headset and RDS carrying case $329.99 ($30 savings)


Up until now, it was highly improbable that you’d ever find a Nintendo Switch console under the $299.99 MSRP price.  Even upcoming deals still retain the price point even if they add a game or accessories to the mix.  Now, a pre-Black Friday deal is available with eBay for a limited time for the console at the $269.99 price point with free 3-day delivery.  Grab it while you can as supplies are limited!
