I decided to ask around the TechRadar team to see what everyone’s favorite (aka the best) Nintendo Switch game is – and then checked whether there’s a deal on that particular title right now.
Computing Writer Jessica Weatherbed said her favorite game is Hades, a dungeon-crawling, mythical thirst trap – which isn’t a surprise if you know her. Right now, Hades is discounted but only in the UK, at the Nintendo eShop. Sorry US peeps.
Jamel Smith, TechRadar’s intern, said his favorite Switch game is Luigi’s Mansion 3. We don’t hold it against him, because legally we can’t until he’s a full-time member of staff, and because right now Walmart is offering a $10 discount on Luigi’s Mansion 3.
Phones Editor, James Peckham, played it safe by picking Switch classic Super Mario Odyssey. It is on our best Switch games list, we’ll give him that. Plus, Walmart is offering Super Mario Odyssey for just $35.23 (a $5 saving) right now.
TechRadar’s resident wholesome Nintendo dweeb (also known as our News & Features Editor) Henry St Leger claimed Hollow Knight is the best Switch game – when forced to only pick one. Unfortunately, Henry doesn’t seem to want any of you to save money, because Hollow Knight isn’t on sale right now – sorry.
Vic Hood, TechRadar’s Gaming Editor (aka me), obviously has selected the correct best Switch game – and it’s even on sale right now. What Remains of Edith Finch is currently just £5.29 at the Nintendo UK store right now, meaning you save over £10 on its usual cost.
The Nintendo Switch launched four years ago and during that time we’ve seen plenty of Switch games hit the family-friendly console. Yet, it’s one of the original Switch’s launch games that arguably remains the console’s most popular title to this day.
That’s right, I’m talking about The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Zelda’s first Switch entry is still considered by many to be one of the greatest games of all time, never mind on Switch, so it’s still a welcome sight to see BOTW on sale.
Right now, Walmart is offering Breath of the Wild for $35, meaning you save nearly $7 on its usual $41.99 RRP. it’s not the lowest price we’ve seen for BOTW, as it dropped to $29.99 back in 2019, but it’s still a decent price for one of the best games ever.
We’ve got bad news – this familiar (but fantastic) Nintendo Switch bundle deal at Best Buy has just gone out of stock… but we are seeing some stock stay around, so it may be that the bundles (and there are many, but most are out of stock) will return.
So what made this bundle so good? Well, it packs in the Nintendo Switch (Neon), Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and a three-month subscription for Nintendo Switch Online for $299.99 – that’s pretty good value seeing as buying all these items separately would cost you $370 at full price.
If you’re in the UK, don’t fret, you can still pick up this excellent Nintendo Switch deal. This same bundle is available for £259.99 at My Nintendo Store right now.
