5 Nintendo Switch Exclusives to Preorder Before Amazon Prime's Discount Ends

Amazon is discontinuing its Prime promotion that lets customers save 20 percent on preordered games, but there are a few Nintendo Switch exclusives that Switch owners can still preorder before the offer ends to save some money.
Announced by Amazon on August 20, the 20-percent-off deal is coming to an end on August 28. Replacing the deal is another offer that gives players a $10 credit on their next purchase when they preorder a game. Buyers still get something for preordering through Amazon, but that something requires you to make another Amazon purchase within 60 days of acquiring the credit, a deal that's much less attractive than taking around $12 off the price of a new game.
But since the transition to the new Prime offer hasn't happened yet, gamers still have two more days to save money on their Nintendo Switch exclusives, some that are months away and others that don't even have a release date. Before the deal ends, here are five games coming exclusively to the Nintendo Switch that Amazon shoppers should preorder for less while they still can.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

The first full-fledged Pokemon games to come to the Nintendo Switch, Pokemon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! keep to the same release formula by offering two different games with different Pokemon serving as the main characters.

Metroid Prime 4
There's hardly anything known about Metroid Prime 4 right now, but we do know that the game's been confirmed for a Nintendo Switch release. It wasn't featured by Nintendo this year in any of the big conferences, but Nintendo's Reggie Fils-Aime spoke to Game Informer to confirm that everything is still moving along well and that the game is in development.
Metroid Prime 4 doesn't yet have a release date, but you can still preorder it here.
"Last year was important to us to message to the Metroid fan that there was a Metroid Prime experience in development, as we showed Metroid: Samus Returns for the 3DS," Fils-Aime told Game Informer. "We didn't want that fan to say 'You just launched a new system, when are you going to bring me a Metroid on that platform?' We said it was coming. This year, with so many games launching effectively between [now] and the first half of next year, we wanted to focus on those games. Rest assured, Metroid Prime 4 is still in development and proceeding well"prevnext
Fire Emblem: Three Houses
Fire Emblem: Three Houses was revealed months ago during Nintendo's E3 presentation, but like the new Metroid game, little information has been released regarding what it'll be like. The trailer that was shared during the reveal does make it look as though it'll be a return to the classic Fire Emblem formula that was seen on older consoles and handheld devices, but that remains to be seen until Nintendo shares more details.
The next Fire Emblem game doesn't yet have a release date, but it's currently in development for the Nintendo Switch and can be preordered here.
"A brand-new Fire Emblem game with a new story and characters is coming to Nintendo Switch. The game takes place on Fódlan, where the Church of Seiros exercises great power over the land and its people. This turn-based tactical RPG will put new strategic twists on battling, with formations of troops supporting individual units on the battlefield. Do you have what it takes to survive and conquer in this brand-new Fire Emblem game? Fire Emblem Three Houses is available Spring 2019!"prev
