When will Nintendo Switch bundle Black Friday sales start in 2022?
Officially, the big date to mark on your calendars is the Friday immediately after Thanksgiving in America. This year, that falls on Friday, 25th November 2022.
However, many retailers these days try to get the jump on the day by kicking off their deals a week or even two before the big day itself. Therefore the deals have already started rolling in, at quite a pace.
What is a Nintendo Switch bundle deal?
A bundle deal is a great way for retailers to offer you even bigger savings, often on products you would be buying anyway.
Around Black Friday a common kind of bundle deal is a console bundled up with a few games, and then perhaps a controller or a memory card, as we see in the UK bundle deal above.
The first thing you’ll want after buying a new console is some games to play on it, meaning you’re happy, and the retailer is happy as you’re spending more money on their site. Because of this they are able to offer even bigger savings than they could on each item individually.
Features to consider when looking for a Black Friday Nintendo Switch Bundle deal.
As of the time of writing, there are now three specific models of Nintendo Switch – the standard, the Lite and the OLED Model. Each one has its own features and drawbacks – for example, the Lite is handheld, but can’t be docked. The OLED has a brighter screen, but is slightly more expensive. Make sure you’re happy with which console comes in your bundle.
There may be a lot of choices when it comes to games in the bundle. Speaking broadly, Nintendo first party games such as Splatoon 3 are regularly excellent, but it’s likely you’ll get fewer of them.
While third party games may vary in quality more, you’re likely to get more of them thrown in the package. It’ll be up to you what you prefer – and bear in mind the cost of the games after you’ve bought your system.
Special Edition console bundles
Be aware that some special edition “bundles” actually come with specially designed versions of the Nintendo Switch console themed around the game. Naturally, they don’t make any functional difference to how the console operates, but it does make you stand out in the crowd. Be wary though, as a select few of these special edition consoles don’t actually have the game included. So make sure to check the description first.

Black Friday Nintendo Switch Bundle FAQs
Is Nintendo Switch worth buying now?
We’d definitely say so. While there’s been constant rumours of a new model for some time, nothing substantial has come of them, outside of hardware refreshes like the Switch Lite and OLED Model.
Can two people play on one Nintendo Switch?
It depends on the game, but generally speaking: yes! On the standard and OLED models, the detachable Joy-Cons can work as two individual controllers.
Obviously, not every game supports this – and some use it differently from others. For example, some games will have you turn the controllers horizontally, others might just have you use them as separate devices. Just be sure to check the game’s description (or the box if you’re buying physical) before you buy.
