Amazon Prime Day 2020 offers thousands of deals to Amazon Prime members on October 13th and 14th and is the best way to get your hands on this year’s hottest video game console, the Nintendo Switch.

Switch was the best-selling gaming console in record-setting year for video game sales, attracting millions of new players with its unique portable design. More sophisticated PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will be released later this fall, but exclusive Nintendo franchises such as “Super Mario,” “Pokemon” and “The Legend of Zelda” have been making the switch for years. Come on.

Increased demand during the COVID-19 pandemic made it harder to find the $ 300 switch, but don’t be surprised if Amazon allocates some for Prime Day. Finding a $ 200 switchlight with bundles of gray, yellow, turquoise and coral is somewhat easy. Keep in mind that the switch light is not connected to another display, so if you want to play on the TV in your living room, do not settle for the switch light.

We keep an eye on Nintendo Switch deals over the weekend and when Prime Day officially opens on October 13th and 14th. This post will be updated when new sales start, so check back regularly. For more prime day coverage, you can follow all the best prime day tech deals here.

Amazon has confirmed that up to 33% of many Nintendo Switch titles will be off the course during Prime Day, although this is not yet known to us.

Annual subscriptions to Nintendo Switch Online with 128GB Sandisk Micro SD card will be off 36% off during Prime Day. The Nintendo Switch Online usually costs $ 20 a year and offers access to dozens of classic Nintendo games, most of which were added in 2017 with the $ 80 Super Nintendo Classic.

Demand for Nintendo Switch and Switchlight consoles skyrocketed during the COVID-19 epidemic, so don’t expect too many to be in stock on Prime Day. The switch is rarely discounted to less than $ 300, but we can see console bundles offering multiple games or switch accessories at low prices.

The switch bundle on last year’s Prime Day deals was $ 35 with the Nintendo eShop card for $ 300. Amazon’s competitors often combine the switch with a $ 60 game during Black Friday and other major sales, so a Prime Day deal may not necessarily provide the best value for a switch bundle if you can wait a few weeks.

We have also seen slight reductions on popular Nintendo switch games such as “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” and “Mario Kart 8 Deluxe” and we can expect Nintendo’s successful titles to go on sale this year.

Nintendo offers two versions of the switch – the $ 300 standard console and the $ 200 Switch Lite. Both consoles run the same games, but there are some key differences with the hardware.

The standard switch has two removable “joy-cons” that can be used as controllers and connected to a television. The controls of the switch light are not removed from the screen and it does not use the switch dock to connect to a large TV or monitor. This means that games that require joy-cons for motion control, such as “Super Mario Party”, require a special controller with a switch light.

The difference in size also has some other effects. The switch light has a 5.5-inch screen, while the standard switch has a 6.2-inch screen. The battery of a standard switch lasts up to nine hours, while the switch light stays on for seven hours.
