Best deals for gamers by Amazon Prime

Prime Day is here, and Nintendo Switch owners have plenty of deals to choose from – and not just from Amazon. Nintendo rarely discounts its games, but Prime Day and its rivals have brought down the price of the portable console’s biggest titles, including The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Luigi’s Mansion 3, and Paper Mario: The Origami King. Don’t delay, however, as we expect these Nintendo sales to expire soon.

Although the Switch Lite isn’t on sale, Amazon is throwing in a 128GB memory card. What’s special about this card is that it’s officially licensed by Nintendo, comes in red, and has a Super Mario Bros. (Ultram) mushroom on it. The Switch Lite comes in blue, coral, gray, turquoise, and yellow.
