Prime Day Nintendo Switch best deals: Save on Luigi’s Mansion 3, Zelda, Mario and more

This story is part of Amazon Prime Day 2021, CNET’s guide to everything you need to know and how to make sure you get the best deal.

Prime Day has kicked off, giving Nintendo Switch owners plenty of great deals to choose from — and not just from Amazon. Nintendo rarely discounts its own 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. mushroom on it. The Switch Lite comes in blue, coral, gray, turquoise and yellow.
