If you're planning on grabbing a Nintendo Switch this holiday, the pickings are going to be slim in terms of deals. The only bundle Nintendo plans to offer includes Mario Kart 8 with the old Nintendo Switch that was recently upgraded with better battery life. With that in mind, the bundle that Walmart is currently offering is likely to be as good as anything Black Friday and Cyber Monday have to offer.

At the time of writing, you can get the new and improved Nintendo Switch (Gray or Neon Joy-Cons) bundled with a free copy of Minecraft right here for a little under $299. You can't go wrong with Minecraft, so grab this bundle while you can because it probably won't last long. While you're at it, you might want to pick up a Pro Controller with a discount.


On a related note, Walmart unveiled their plans for Black Friday recently, and you can check out the full breakdown via our Walmart Black Friday 2019 master list. If you're looking for games for your new Nintendo Switch, there will be plenty of deals to be had. The gaming deals are spread out into pricing tiers that range from $15 to $30.
