Nintendo of Europe has bundled Nintendo Switch Online memberships with four different games, combining for some small savings. A few of the titles have already been available in the past for more significant discounts, so this is far from a doorbuster, but those in Europe who are anxious to bite the bullet on Nintendo Switch Online have a good opportunity to do so now on Nintendo’s website.
The games available in bundles are Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Splatoon 2, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and Super Mario Maker 2. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is paired with a family membership, good for 15% off, while the other three titles come with individual online plans and bring 11 and 12% discounts.
There is unfortunately no indication as to whether or not this deal will spread to other territories such as North America. Each branch of Nintendo has the tendency to run their own promotions a lot of the time, so there is not much way of knowing if anybody else will be seeing these discounts.
The offers are also fairly weak in the first place, so I would not say that anyone is truly missing out. If you have been holding off on any of those games or the admittedly abysmal Nintendo Switch Online for this long, you can certainly hold out a bit longer and grab a better mark-down during fall and winter sales that have more bite to them. That is, unless you just have to be playing SNES games on the go as soon as possible.
